Half-Day Walk to Freedom Tour in Cape Town
For those with limited time, the Walk to Freedom tour is offered as a half day option including visits to the Malay Quarter, District Six and the District Six Museum and the Cape Flats and Townships. This half day option excludes a visit to Robben Island.

No easy road to freedom\' was a central theme in most of the Mass Democratic Movement\'s campaigns, from the early days through to the late 1980s. Any understanding of present day conditions in South Africa is greatly enhanced by looking at past injustice, the legacy of the struggle and the promise of reconstruction and development initiatives under way at present. Freedom has not come easy. This tour offers a wealth of insight into South African history. It includes a brief educational introduction to Cape Town, one of the world\'s most varied and sought-after cities.

The Bo-Kaap
A look at the picturesque \'Malay Quarter\', a dynamic, living museum and home to the oldest mosque in the Southern Hemisphere. We discover the unique culture, lifestyle and personality of the Cape Muslim community and their contribution to South Africa\'s development.

District Six
As a result of the Group Areas Act, 60 000 Capetonian families were forcibly removed from this once vibrant area between 1966 and 1982. The District Six issue remains crucial. We examine the now desolate area, Zonnebloem, which was District Six and visit the living museum which attempts to represent and recapture District Six in various ways - as a fine-spun tapestry of communal life torn apart but not forgotten.
