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 had so much fun! My 17 year old daughter was enthralled throughout the delightful journey through Montagu. Marschelle and her stories are an absolute treat; what a cool way to learn town and people history through her stories. Thank you! - Cailin

It was absolutely amazing and Marchelle has so much knowledge about the town. It was a real treat and we will most definitely to this again - Antoinette

It was fun and I enjoyed it. Marcelle was very friendly and informative. - Samantha

My nephew and I thoroughly enjoyed the Ghost and Historic Town Bike Tour. Marchelle was entertaining and we chuckled at some of the stories. Having recently moved to Montagu, it was interesting to hear the history of some of the homes. Delighted she did not stop at my house and reveal some ghost story!! (LOL). - ETTIE

I booked for my family who ranged from grade 4 to 45 years. Some were skeptical about the so called "ghosts", others were worried that the cycling would be too exhausting etc. They ALL returned in high excitement, thrilled and laughing having found the tour scary enough, very informative and highly enjoyable! so well done! - Antjie
