Half-Day Private Tour
A wonderful way to discover the city of Durban! Learn about the city's history, industry, harbour (the busiest in Africa!), beach culture and the "Golden Mile", the influence of the Indian people, as well as about every-day life in a city that has evolved from a family holiday destination to hosting some of the world's most important conferences and dignatories. Highlights of the tour include: bargaining for curios at the bustling Victoria Street ("Indian") Market, exploring the tranquil Durban Botanic Gardens and an orientation of the CDB to view the colonial buildings. We'll also see the court house where Mahatma Gandhi practised law and the famous City Hall, which is an almost identical replica of the one situated in Belfast. See the awesome Moses Mobhida Soccer Stadium - built for the 2010 Soccer World Cup. Why not try the bungee jump from the Stadium towers or a ride up the sky car! This tour is also ideal for cruise passengers docked at Durban Harbour.
