My name is Hybré van Niekerk, former Marketing Co-ordinator of Paarl Tourism and former Curator of Het Gesticht Slave Museum. I am the proud owner of Paarl Historical Walk and Tours. The Historical Walking Tour starts at Het Gesticht Museum, the fourth oldest church building in South Africa. You will receive a guided 1km walk of our beautiful Main Street, focusing on the history, architecture and hidden stories lying beneath these majestic manor houses and buildings. The tour takes about 2 to 2.5 hours; visitors should wear comfortable shoes and preferably a hat during summer. From November to March the tours will be conducted at 9am and 5pm. From April to October it will take place at 11am and 3pm. Tours will take place as per booking. A complimentary mineral water and a non-alcoholic beverage of your choice to be provided.
Private & exclusive full day tours with an air-conditioned sedan for up to 4 guests are also available. Larger groups can be accommodated as well.
