Port Elizabeth Walking City Tour Voucher

Port Elizabeth

Activity Description

A walking city tour through the inner city of one of the oldest cities in South Africa.

Our city tours start from the Campanile Memorial – an important landmark situated at the entrance to the railway station.We then proceed to follow route 67 – an exciting trail that combines the best elements – both historical and modern-day – of the people and culture of the Eastern Cape. It also pays tribute to Madiba’s 67 years of service to South Africans.

The tour also includes a visit to the Donkin Reserve at Belmont Terrace and the old lighthouse. Here you will find yourself surrounded by a mix of exquisite old Victorian churches; newly renovated, terraced cottages on Donkin Street; and a lighthouse that once guided ships into Algoa Bay, today it provides a panoramic view of the city. Other attractions include: Fort Frederick, City Hall, Market Square, the city library and St Georges park, the oldest cricket ground in South Africa.

Be sure to get a picture next to a large metal cut-out of Nelson Mandela, fist raised in triumph, leading a line of South Africans representing the voters who cast their ballots in the country’s first democratic elections on 27 April 1994.

Customer Reviews

The guided tour was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Freddie showed us the city and the story he told about its history and his experience of living in it was rich with facts and anecdotes as well as nuance. For us, this walk was one of the highlights of our holiday. - Sarah Posman


A very enjoyable and informative experience. Port Elizabeth's inner city is well worth a visit. - Sofia Rocha


The tour guide was outstanding, professional, friendly and well informed. I enjoyed the walk as it was also a stretch out of my comfort zone. - Busisiwe Ngwenya

Great walking tour with Stafford as my guide. Despite some attractions being closed on account of it being Sunday, we had a nice walk and I got to hear many interesting stories about the city. - Ann-Christin Gramming
