Brazilian guide in Cape Town

At the foot of Table Mountain, Cape Town spreads lazily and gracefully towards the sea. The city bears the title of legislative capital of the country, but perhaps it would be more appropriate to call it “capital of quality of life”. Full of beautiful trails, parks and beaches, Cape Town is a true invitation to outdoor life and sports!

But don't think that Cape Town is defined easily like that: there, you will find great museums, beautiful churches, castles full of stories and a city that pulses! With an active nightlife, there is still plenty of culture there and modern shops and hotels – as well as restaurants for all tastes (and budgets!).

With all this in mind, we have a partnership with Sonia, a Brazilian guide in Cape Town, who welcomes Brazilians with Brazilian hospitality and plenty of knowledge to help you have the best experience there!

I'm Brazilian from São Paulo and I decided that I should take an English course outside Brazil after losing an opportunity at the company I worked for because I didn't speak English! I worked for years in a travel agency, selling nightmares, as my focus was business trips – I am very happy to say that, nowadays, I sell dreams!

I decided to go to Australia, because I was afraid I wouldn't get a visa for the United States and I took England out of my focus due to the weather! When researching how to get to Australia, I saw that the connection would be via South Africa and decided to stop here, do a two-month exchange program and set off on the road to Australia. But something wasn't in the plans: arriving in Cape Town, I met my husband! It was love at first sight, I followed my initial plan and went to Australia, but my heart remained in South Africa…

After several contacts with my future husband, I decided to return and here I am today, more than 20 years later! As I worked in tourism in Brazil, I got a job at an operator and, through another contact, I had a proposal to serve Brazilians who came to this African land as a guide!

My dream came true, because many years ago I thought it would be cool to work as a guide, but the lack of English discouraged me.

I love my work very much, I serve people from different parts of Brazil and Portugal too, and it is a rewarding job. This is a beautiful country and Cape Town is equally beautiful – I'm happy to show Brazilians these people and this wonderful city, with its restaurants, views, hotels, everything first class!

Cape Town chose me and welcomed me, I'm very happy to live here!

Full-day tour of Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa's oldest city, has a number of important historic buildings – many of which are still in use and open to visitors. While this city is diverse in its people and experiences, it is also rich in cultural heritage.

On this tour you will learn about the history of the city and its statues and churches, including museums and galleries. We will visit Cape Town City Hall (the city hall) in the heart of the city, a neo-classical building, designed in the Renaissance style. Cape Town also proudly boasts South Africa's oldest building, The Castle of Good Hope, built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company.

In addition, we will climb Table Mountain, which is among the 7 natural wonders of the world, weather permitting. And, also, a visit to the magnificent Botanical Garden, on the back of Table Mountain: one of the most beautiful in the world!

Full-day tour of the fairs (Saturdays only)

How about visiting one of the most visited fairs in Cape Town? And another really busy and cool one? We can visit two fairs in the city area on the same Saturday.

Old Biscuit Mill is very popular with tourists from all over the world and has live music, stalls with food, drinks and several shops around it – apart from the vibe, which is really cool! It takes place in an old neighborhood called Woodstock that is slowly being revitalized. Afterwards, we will head to the Hout Bay neighborhood, where we will visit another really cool fair, with live music, stalls with food, drinks and crafts.

Full-day tour to Robben Island and wineries from Constantia

Nelson Mandela spent 18 years on Robben Island, where he was the most important political prisoner in the history of South Africa. This tour requires good weather, as we depend on it to cross and visit the prison and Mr Mandela's cell. In addition, this tour also shows a little about the history of the island and other important political prisoners in the history of the island. Apartheid.

After visiting the island, to reflect and relax a little, we will visit the oldest wineries in South Africa, so we can end this tour a little more relaxed and happy after learning about the drama that South Africa suffered with the Apartheid.

Hermanus is one of the best places for whale watching in South Africa, known for its large number of southern right whales that can be seen from July to November. This is a unique opportunity to watch whales aboard boats in the port of the city of Hermanus.
