André Leibbrandt is a qualified Western Cape Tourist Guide who has been leading these walks for three-and-a-half years. Andre and his business partner have delved deep into Simon’s Town’s history at local libraries and museums to create this ghost walk tour experience.
SUITABLE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
The majority of the walk takes place at a leisurely pace on the sidewalk. Children of all ages who are brave enough and can handle a two-hour walk are welcome, and they particularly love the graveyard walk at the end. Andre can easily facilitate groups of up to 30 at a time.
