We went to the University of KZN. We couldn't get into the premises due to COVID restrictions. We then went to the Botanical Gardens which was a phenomenal experience. Well manicured, breathtaking and the tour guide is an absolute gem. We also got to take lots of stunning pictures! We then went to see the CBD, the Moses Mabida stadium and the Durban Harbour. It was a marvelous tour. The great thing is that we stopped at multiple places. Our tour guide Sotiris is amazing. He has a true passion for people and his job.

Had an amazing time seeing places in Durban we had never experienced before, even some places we thought we new, became properly unveiled. Learning about Mahatma Ghandi, Langalibalele Dube, and Shembe, amongst others, increased our knowledge

There is a lot of travel in this trip, roughly 4 hours there, but it was worth it. The guide was excellent and very chatty even though it was such a long day. If you have the time, I'd recommend this trip

Due to pandemic, Zulu dance was not available however local tour offered us a replacement activity for that. Zulu dance will be available after heritage day of 2020.

Fun tour that really gave me a good flavour of Durban
