My husband and I took the culinary food tour of cape town (half day). Our guide Michael was extremely knowledgable and a joy to spend time with. Michael met us right in front of our hotel and we proceeded to walk through the Bo'Kaap Region of Cape Town. Mike took us inside a local spice shop where we enjoyed the smells and scents of the Cape Malay traditional spices. This was fascinating, especially because Michael provided the cultural and historical details, but also the culinary aspect considering he is well versed in the culinary arts! Mike drove us through some areas of town where he described their importance during the apartheid. (My husband and I probably wouldn't have felt comfortable going to these areas without a guide). We went to our host's house and enjoyed traditional South African food and amazing conversation. Our hosts Sheila and Blackie were so hospitable and sweet. We ended our route at a local spot called Wembleys and had such yummy tastes of the area.
This was a very important and special experience for my husband and I! We were blown away with how much we learned and took away from our day with Michael. If your looking for a way to immerse yourself in South African culture and exercise your passion for food- this is the tour to take. Amazing! And worth the price!
