Full description
On this half day tour, you will learn about the fascinating history of South Africa during a Pretoria city experience. Pretoria is the capital of South Africa and full of historic sites like the Union Buildings, headquarters of the government. The buildings are beautifully situated in terraced gardens, through which you can enjoy an idyllic walk. Enjoy a visit to the Voortrekker Monument, a monument of great significance to many Afrikaans-speaking South Africans because it stands for Afrikaner Nationalism. The interior walls depict the story of the Great Trek, a mass movement of Afrikaner Boers who resented British rule. Next, you can visit the Paul Kruger House Museum where you can learn more about this fascinating man and his life. The house displays furniture and personal items of the Kruger family. Pretoria has character in its buildings and during this city architecture tour, you will be given ample opportunity to ask your guide about the history behind the buildings and culture. Visit Church Square, the Ou Raadsaal, Palace of Justice and Capital Theatre.

Emma island an amazing person, she explained and informed us about the whole tour

December 21, 2019

Our guide kindly guided us to the places of the tour, but had little knowledge and then just sat down while we visited the sites. Only the Voortrekker monument has explained it. She did not even know what the name Gauteng means and she looked it up on the phone. Otherwise she looked bored. Upon request, she accompanied us a few steps over Church Square.
