    What a lovely, interesting walk! The 40 minutes flew by and made me wish it was longer. Coleen has a great, melodic voice for narration. I'm definitely hooked, this is the first of many VoiceMap walks for me.

    Lived in the area for a while and the walk showed me some things I didn't know existed. A very fun walk and amusing commentary. Must be capped off by a stay at Stoked backpackers - best rooftop views in Muizenberg!!

    I've always stayed close to Muizenberg's beach - I don't think I've ever been into its "village". But after this walk and a drink at the Village Inn, I think it must be one of Cape Town's more interesting, more closely knit communities.
