I have lived in Cape Town for 56 years. Cape Town is not a typical African City because it has more of an Indigenous Culture. On the surface it may appear to be like many other cities in the world, but when you begin to engage with people and learn about their culture, everything changes. I am very interested in the life stories of people, of all ages and from all walks of life. This often leads to the Unscripted moments of great inspiration. I love the un-written history. My wife, my son and my daughter-in-law are my life. My other great passion is Indigenous Culture and useful medicinal plants.

Hi there everyone! So glad to be of your acquaintance. I have been working within the tourism industry for over 20 years so I have a good idea of what the discerning visitor would enjoy. Food? Yes! Cape cuisine is classic. When cooking for my family, I pretend to be Jamie Oliver delivering hearty meals. When visiting the Cape Malay Café the discerning visitor will feel their taste buds come alive. Cape Town not only presents a melting pot of culture and tradition but a menu of both local and global. At the Community Arts Project I was introduced to the art of creating linocuts and this experience deepened my appreciation of the arts. During the upgrade at the Table Mountain Cableway I was introduced to manual- as well as technical labour and this matured me. It is here my people skills got harnessed awa first aid and thinking outside the box. Now nothing inspires the discerning traveller more than combining food and art. Love it!

I enjoy city-life as Cape Town has so much to offer. I love roaming around the city and visiting interesting places such as museums and art galleries. I enjoy going to restaurants because I am a food lover always willing to try different cuisines from different cultures. I am a bodybuilder, so I maintain a healthy lifestyle. In addition to bumping weights I like hiking and being outdoors. In 2016 I completed my National Diploma in Tourism Management and in 2018 I got my Post-Graduate Certificate in Education. As an educator, learning is my passion and I'm always discovering new things and places. Exploring is a way for me to find new cool stuff out there.

I was born in Italy, but after travelling around Europe, Morocco, Turkey and South Africa, I fell in love with Cape Town, where I have been living since 2011. I'm passionate about nature, wildlife, and mountains. I love sharing my knowledge of the flora and fauna, the geology and the geography of the country. I can delight you with the history, culture and stories of South Africa when taking you around the city! Hiking is one of my passions and I can safely lead you through special and less known routes around the Table Mountain National Park. My objective is to provide you with the most worthwhile and enriching experience of South Africa's natural environment that will give you a better understanding of its uniqueness and the importance of preserving it for future generations. I value, respect and conserve the natural environment by promoting eco-sustainable practices. I truly embrace the philosophy of 'Leave only footprints behind'.

Hi, my name is Keenan! I am from the always friendly area of Retreat in the Southern Suburbs. I love sports, travelling, laughing and eating really good food. I grew up in Cape Town and have spent my entire life here, so I know the city inside-out. I am a stand-up comedian at night, and this has allowed me to see so many places all across the city. I have traveled around the country and have seen and explored great places both popular and unknown, but all equally amazing! I have good people skills and love to engage in great conversations. Add this to a great sense of humour and extensive knowledge of Cape Town and you're guaranteed a fun time!

I am a humble person who enjoys helping people with advice and support. I love to communicate with people from different cultures and backgrounds. I would love to share my experiences and knowledge of historical sites, the buildings of Cape Town, religious places and museums of the city and its surroundings. We can go to wine-tastings or visit some local markets. I'm very into sports especially soccer, rugby and cricket. If you want to have a memorable experience in Cape Town, join me for a walk around the city!

I'm a free spirited, confident and outgoing person that basically gets along with any personality type. My hobbies include drawing, painting and simply sitting at the seashore and admiring nature. I love the outdoors and always crave for new adventures. I'm an excellent listener and care way too much to allow anyone to walk around sad or unhappy.
