Description - What to expect

Your Port Elizabeth tour starts with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation and then a short drive to the starting point, the Port Elizabeth City Hall. Follow your guide and discover the most important highlights of this city. Visit the Campanile Memorial, an important landmark situated at the entrance to the railway station and then proceed to follow the inner city part of "Route 67" all the way to Fort Frederick. This is an exciting arts/heritage trail that pays tribute to Nelson Mandela's 67 Years of Service to South Africa and building a democratic country. The trail includes both historical and modern-day art pieces that tell a story of the people and culture of the Eastern Cape and South Africa.

Port Elizabeth city tour also includes a visit to the Donkin Reserve at Belmont Terrace and the old lighthouse. Here you will find yourself surrounded by a mix of exquisite old Victorian churches newly renovated, terraced cottages on Donkin Street, and a lighthouse that once guided ships into Algoa Bay. Other attractions include Fort Frederick, City Hall, Market Square, and the city library.

Be sure to get a picture next to a large metal cut-out of Nelson Mandela, fist raised in triumph, leading a line of South Africans representing the voters who cast their ballots in the country's first democratic elections on 27 April 1994.
