Ghost and Historic Town Bike Tour


Activity Description

Montagu has beautiful historical buildings and sometimes people say: “If these walls could talk…” History is preserved through the stories we tell. Your guide, Marchelle van Zyl, will be telling you the stories of the mischievious, the naughty ones and the scary ones who lived here and never left…
During the tour you will hear stories about the history of the town as well as stories of some of the characters who lived here. Marchelle gathered the stories from the town’s people. Whether you want to believe it or not, it is up to you. Some of the stories are just outrages, others might send a chill down your spine.
The tour is informative and fun. No one with a white sheet is going to jump out from behind a tree. Well, if they do, it isn’t planned…
Definitely a must do in Montagu!

Customer Reviews

What an enjoyable and fun way of exploring the little town of Montagu. Very informative in a playful way. Enjoyed by our group of adults and children. Marcel was a super host and played the part very well. Love the choice of bicycles and the painted designs on it. Added more colour to an already colourful experience. Not to mention her detailed costume that adds more character to the roll she portrays. We will definitely do it again, but this time will get a costume to match the theme. The finale at the end of evening in front of the church was a great way of rounding off the Ghost Tour. what a memorable experience. Thank you - Joanita Brittnell

Hierdie was die perfekte manier om twaalfjarige dogtertjies met teveel energie en oormaat nuuskierigheid mee te vermaak . dit was beslis 'n hoogte punt by ons dogtertjie se partytjie. baie dankie Flying Feet, - Marietha Stemmet

Thank you to Marcelle for a really fun tour! The bikes are an enjoyable way of seeing the town and her stories were told with enthusiasm. It almost ended too soon! We would highly recommend this tour when visiting Montagu - Naomi Senekal

Thank you so much Marchelle. The tour was fun and also gave us lots of information about Montagu. I can definitely recommend it - it was good value !! - Henriette Coetzee

Flying Feet's ghost tour in Montagu is highly recommendable - Marchelle cleverly adapts the scary bits of the tour to entertain the entire family! Our group consisted of two families with children's ages ranging from 14 to 8, a couple from Sweden and another from Cape Town. We were all invited to participate in the re-telling of the people of Montagu's stories from the early 1700s. A delightful tour and great way to get to know the area. We did the tour at 19:30 on a summer's night and loved the slowly-getting-darker feel. Just do it! - Colette du Plessis
