We loved the kindness of our guide Rafiq and the passion he has for the untold history of his people & district. The tour also informs you about all the efforts beeing made by the actual community to preserve it against gentification. We deeply appreciated having been welcomed for tea, warm and freshly made Bo-Kaap pastries while listening to wonderful music and songs from six men of the community. All this in a private home. We could feel all the community efforts to preserve and share the culture

We recently spent the day with Rafiq to visit the penguins and see the gorgeous scenery of Cape Town. He is a delightful and knowledgeable guide and a safe driver. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. He was patient and flexible when our ship was delayed from docking due to extreme winds. Book him without hesitation. He is a wonderful person to spend time with.

We had a wonderful time exploring the BoKasp with Rafiq who his knowledgeable and passionate about the Bo Kaap. We learned a lot. We booked a tour that included listening to Bo Kaap music. This session was hosted in one of the houses and a lovely lady hosted us. We truly recommend this authentic and fun session. Thank you Rafiq and anyone else who made this tour memorable

What an amazing highlight of our trip to Cape Town! Rafiq provides the perfect experience for those of us who enjoy the in-depth perspective of a born & raised local. As we walked through the Bo Kaap neighborhood, he greeted everyone by name, and it was clear that he was known and loved by all. I don't want to give too much away, (because you should absolutely book this straight away, & I want you to be surprised), but we were very pleased by a couple of surprises, and would absolutely recommend this trip

This was a real treat: a grand tour of the peninsula in all its glory. Rafiq made it even more enjoyable by knowing when to get there and avoid the traffic and lines that plague the area.

Rafiq was wonderful and we totally enjoyed his tour and learned a lot. He was so personable and grew up in the area he showed us so there could be no more excellent guide of the Bo Kaap and District Six. He took us to a mosque and described the history of Bo Kaap in a way that we'll remember. Rafiq was so kind and made this a day of learning for us. The 3 of us totally recommend him for any tour!!! He gave us a special day and added many touches that were so memorable.

We did Cape of Good Hope tour along with Bo Kaap tour with Rafiq. He was responsive, timely, courteous , and well informed. He is an expert on the beautiful Bo Kaap neighborhood. Learned a lot about the history of South Africa and apartheid from him as well. Highly recommend Rafiq!

We had a great tour with Rafiq. His background, as he stated in his biography as a slave descendant, gives a very different but insightful and illuminating perspective. For us, this was one of the main reasons for engaging him and this proved to be wise choice. He is knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. He also happens to live in Bo-Kaap and this provided an additional and unique angle. All in all, a great tour guide.
