  • This is a walking tour and you will be walking a fair distance over concrete pavements and tar roads so wear comfortable shoes.
  • Talk to people. South Africans are extremely friendly. Don't be afraid to ask traders at the market or waiters at the coffee shop about where they are from. There are also many migrant workers from Africa at the art and craft market.
  • Bargain at the art and craft market if you are buying a few items from one store. Traders at the market are usually willing to give you a better price if you are buying a few items from them. However, if you are buying one small item like a key ring don't bother to ask for a discount.
  • This is a tour for daytime only as the stores at the mall and the galleries close at 6pm. It's quite safe with a large number of private security guards in the area but like anywhere else in the world it's good to be mindful of your possessions.
  • Any MasterCard, Visa, or American Express cards will be accepted at different shops and at the art and craft market.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
