Ursula Stevens

Hello, and welcome to Cape Town. I have written several books about Cape Town and the greater region. I am a tour guide and regularly conduct walking tours around Cape Town. I also speak several languages and have lived in Cape Town for over fifty years. It is my home, I love it and I hope to make you fall in love with our city as well. I can't show you all the places of interest, nor can I take you to all the monuments and statues. All I can do is dangle that proverbial carrot before your nose to tempt you to explore further.
