This is just for an audio tour NOT entrance to the gardens which we had to pay for when we arrived. The audio tour, we were informed by the cashier, NO longer exists when they tried to scan the bar code on the ticket so this is a misleading product not worth purchasing!!

Response from iainmanley, Owner at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens Self-guided Audio Tour by VoiceMap
Responded 1 week ago
Hi there, We're sorry you felt this was misleading. The description at no point mentions including entrance to the gardens, which actually costs more than the tour on its own. Nevertheless, we can and will make the exclusion explicit. This audio tour does still exist. There was an old audio tour using a handset at Kirstenbosch and that no longer exists. This tour plays through the VoiceMap mobile app and to use it all you need to do is follow the instructions that were included with your ticket. If you write to us at support@voicemap.me, we'll gladly give you credit for another tour or refund you for this one, if this is possible.
