All you need is comfortable shoes, a small backpack, sun block, money for lunch and drinks, and a camera. The tour is fully guided and takes approximately 3-4 hours to complete. Make a note to venture into the heart of the colourful Bo-Kaap for a traditional Boboti for lunch. Be sure to end the tour with a stop in at the recently opened &Bikes Café and Cycle Boutique working in conjunction with Baseline Coffee from Woodstock.
