We had a wonderful afternoon the family welcomed us in despite arriving very early! We thoroughly enjoyed learning to cook Cape Malay Cuisine and also learnt the history of the Bo Kaap area and Cape Town. The food was delicious, we sat and ate together at the dining room table after cooking 3 dishes. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you Jasmina and family.

Sipho was a wonderful guide - punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly. He clearly has a passion for street art and what the NGO he works for is trying to do with the art. A nice way to spend a couple hours and see one of the neighborhoods in the city that you otherwise probably wouldn't experience.

Robbie was amazing!! So personable, extremely knowledgeable, and it was great spending the day with him As our guide. The wines he selected for us were perfect. I wish I could visit all the wine farms with Robbie.

Great tour, lots of urban and original art with depth, also by local artists! Just come along, see-be amazed-learn and support! Gladly again!

Great tour, interesting information and a very nice and personable guide!
