    A closer look at Cape Town History Tour

    Here's What We'll Be Doing

    1. Explore the Company Gardens and learn about the role Dutch played in colonizing the Cape
    2. Take a visit to the Slave Lodge museum, which showcases a darker side of how the Cape was used as a trading post for slaves, predominantly from Java, Indonesia, Malaysia and the east. This is an important aspect of the history of the Cape that gives insight into the current makeup of the population of Cape Town. Discover the major influence these people have had on the local cuisine and culture.
    3. Head on over to the Bo-Kaap and explore the streets lined with the famous colourful houses and meet some of the animated locals going about their day. Discover spice shops and little local stores tucked away on the back streets before visiting the Bo-Kaap Museum.
    4. Take a step back in time with a cellar tour and chocolate and award winning wine pairing at one of the oldest wineries in South Africa, Groot Constantia.
