Full description

Visit District Six and discover the remnants of what was once a mixed community of freed slaves, merchants, artisans, immigrants, and laborers. Learn how over 60,000 of its non-white residents were forcibly removed during the 1970s under South Africa's Apartheid regime.

Modern coffee culture meets poignant storytelling on this guided tour. Kick-start your experience with a cup of coffee at one of Cape Town's quirkiest coffee houses known for its futuristic steampunk outfits and industrial vibe.

Take part in a mini barista workshop and tour the roastery before heading out to discover the history of District Six. Enter the District Six Museum to learn about the residents that were forcibly removed, and their homes destroyed by bulldozers.

Next, make your way to the famous Table Mountain Frame and take photos with the mural of former South African president Nelson Mandela in the background. Enjoy a sweet treat from a nearby bakery to keep you energized for the next leg of the tour, a street art walk.

Learn about the artist who paints the walls of District Six with powerful messages. Mak1One is one of Cape Town's most famous self-taught graffiti art pioneers and pursued graffiti as a platform to express his thoughts and inspire others to question the governance of that time.

End your tour in true local style by catching a local taxi for the short ride back to the city center.
