Cultural Tours


The Western Cape has a rich cultural heritage. The influence of the Dutch, French and English can still be seen in many historical buildings and farm and other place names.

Add to this, the heritage of the indigenous people who lived here thousands of years before the European settlers had arrived, the slaves, who arrived shortly after Jan van Riebeeck had landed and the fight for freedom and democracy.
