What you'll do

All of our walking tours allow participants to delve into the rich tapestries of the cities history, after meeting and greeting you our guides will give you a Historical overview of the city and the diversity of the local area. Many of the current walking tours are generic and fail to address how the city moves to the beat of migrant communities who settled here since 1948. These tours give you music, cuisine, art, sport and a unique focal point.
