Ghost and Historic Town Bike Tour


Activity Description

Definitely a must do in Montagu!
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…

Learn about the history of the town as well as some of the strange and wonderful characters who lived here and don’t want to leave.
Who knows, if you are lucky, you might meet one of them…

Customer Reviews

We loved it! we did the Ghost tour and enjoyed the stories and the history of the town. It was definitely a highlight on our trip and will recommend that you do it. Our hostess/Tourmaster was lovely and very entertaining. Five stars from us! - Marinda Jordaan

It was a fun and entertaining outing. I would recommend it to others. It gave a lovely outline of the history of Montagu. I thought that my kids would be more scared than they would and possibly have nightmares, but none:D. Marchelle was most helpful in providing us with the necessary equipment to be safe. A good outing even for beginner cyclists. - Patrizia

This was by far the highlight of our family holiday. The kids were swept up in the excitement of the ghost stories, which were told so well. Riding bicycles around the town at night added to the experience as well. Don't miss this one if you are visiting Montague. - Lee Greyling
