Cape Town historical tour information:
These historical tours are for persons or a group that has a particular interest in the history of the Cape Town area. The tours are tailor made to the needs of the client or group and therefore we do not offer scheduled historical tours. A typical tour could start in Cape Town city centre, visit the old slave quarter, one of the gentry's town houses and then the Cape Dutch homesteads in the winelands.
Perhaps your interest is in the British influence at the Cape Colony. We would then suggest, for example, that visits include places such as Cecil John Rhodes cottage in Muizenberg, Rhodes Memorial, Simonstown Town and Naval Museum where the British Royal Naval South Atlantic Command was stationed until 1957 etc.
On the other hand perhaps your interest is in the Dutch influence at the Cape. We would then suggest establishments like The Castle of Good Hope, Simon Van Der Stel's Constantia residence, Mosterts Mill and other classical Cape Dutch architectural buildings etc.
The choice is yours........
