Matthew Feltman was a great guide and had a wealth of information on the V and A Waterfront. It was great chatting with him and learning about the history of the waterfront, as well as the surrounding areas.
Got a private guided walking tour which was great and personally!
Celebrated author, historian, and retired journalist, Willem Steenkamp provided us with a detailed historic tour of the Victoria and Albert Waterfront. The tour took about 2 hours and provided a detailed history of Cape Town's shipping and social history. Willem's well researched historic tour provided great anecdotes that outline how the V and A was at the heart of Cape Town and its history, and how it has managed to not only remain relevant, but to be a vibrant part of Cape Town's current life. There are 22 historical landmarks of interest to both local Capetonians and to tourists on the tour and Willem's knowledge of the history, his relationships with various local agents, and his great sense of humor provide a well researched and interesting tour.
For any person interested in getting a grounding in Cape Town's history, from it's origins with the Dutch East India Company through now, or just interested in history in general, this is a tour not to be missed!
