Tintswalo Atlantic has launched a fun new half-day tour of Cape Town that is specifically aimed at families with children.
Conducted by a professional in-house tour guide, the Tintswalo Cape for Kids excursion forms part of a new selection of tailor-made sightseeing tours available to Tintswalo hotel guests. As part of the Cape for Kids tour, young explorers may pick two activities from a choice of five, including Acrobranching; a visit to Kalk Bay Harbour; experiencing the workings of an Ostrich Farm; a lofty camel ride at Imhoff Farm; and Bike Fun at the Constantia Uitsig Bike Park.
Activities will start with a delectable three-course breakfast at the hotel on Chapmans Peak, where guests will meet resident guide Percy Denhere. Originally from Zimbabwe, Denhere has been in the industry for over 10 years. He began his career at the Mount Nelson as a porter, valet and driver, before qualifying as a tour guide and freelancing at first for various professional tour operators. As part of the Tintswalo team the charming tour guide is knowledgeable about Cape Town’s hot spots, as well as its hidden gems. He has a deep understanding of the Cape’s rich history, which coupled with a great sense of humour, a love for children and an attentive but relaxed attitude, makes him the perfect tour guide.
The Cape for Kids Tour includes transfers, a picnic basket of light snacks and drinks, as well as light lunch platter on their return to the hotel, from R4500 per family of four (for hotel guests only).
