Full description
After pickup from your accommodation in Windhoek, set off first on the city tour. Look forward to seeing places like the Houses of Parliament-National Assembly, Parliament Gardens, the old railway station, the Namibia Craft Center, Christuskirche (Christ Church), and Alte Feste (Old Fort). Make a stop at the old cemetery in Hochland Park, a highlight for history enthusiasts, too. From the city center, head to the Katutura Township to catch a glimpse of life in Windhoek's largest suburb. Boasting people from a number of different cultural groups, Katutura is the place to be if you want to mix with the lively and varied cultures of Namibia. In Katatura, visit the “Single Quarters,” a local market where you can enjoy a taste of the Namibian specialty Kapana — Namibian beef cooked by the local vendors. Also included is a stop at a local community empowerment project. After the tour, you will be dropped back to your accommodation.

We booked the city and township tour at very short notice and are very happy that we decided to do it. With Petrus we had the perfect guide. He has an impressive wealth of knowledge and knows how to share his knowledge. Sometimes we really hung on his every word, because he told us the history of Windhoek in such an exciting and lively way. The township tour including a visit to the market was at least as exciting and interesting. We felt very comfortable with Petrus and had a great time together. We would do this tour with Petrus again at any time and can recommend it 100%! Thank you Petrus for the great day, you made our stay in Windhoek very special and not just because of the hail ;)

The tour was a unique experience. Our guide Petrus was just fantastic! Told us a lot about the history, showed the city and answered all questions. Visiting the township was an exceptional experience and we really enjoyed lunch at the market. We can definitely recommend the tour!
