A guided exploration of the tunnels and dungeons beneath the streets of Cape Town, in a search for hidden treasures.
Children MUST be over 8 years old and accompanied by an adult.
Discover the secret tunnels below the city of Cape Town. Parts of the underground canals and rivers date back to 1652 – they used to supply the Company Gardens and the passing ships with fresh water. Later these rivers flowing through the city became pleasant walkways, shaded by oaks, with bridges going over them. Cape Town had its own ‘Gentleman’s Walk’ and was known as ‘Little Amsterdam’. As the years passed and the city expanded, the canals were used to transport sewerage, until 1895, by when they were all arched over and forgotten. Today these historic canals with their impressive architecture convey the sweet waters of Table Mountain and some spring water into the ocean. Follow the river of our culture and heritage that runs of Table Mountain to the Castle of Good Hope. This educational and historic tour will inspire your imagination. A thrilling experience and adventure!
