Cape Town Big 7 – 3 guided walking tours to try along Cape Town’s City Walk

From pointing out interesting landmarks that may have gone by unnoticed, to helping you barter with local informal traders, guided walking tours are always worth investigating on your urban travels. Explore Cape Town’s City Walk via: Footsteps to Freedom, Cape Town Free Walking Tours or the City Sightseeing Walking Tours.
