Starting from £52.26 GBP / Adult
OverviewHide
Discover Maputo on a narrated walk through the capital city. You'll follow a local guide directly from the pier, taking your time to soak up local landmarks and culture along the way. Hear about the resurgence of this city that felt the horrors of war until 1992. Pass by the bronze dome of Maputo's iconic train station and learn about its connection to the Eiffel Tower. Continuing on, visit the bustling Central Market, the city's main shopping venue filled with the aromas of fresh foods and the clamor of city dwellers bartering with local merchants. Afterwards, enjoy a break from the action at a lovely café where you'll savor a local sweet called "pastéis de nata" and sip a fresh-brewed espresso. Your walk wraps up at Maputo Fortress, originally built in 1721. Hear tales of ruthless corsairs and courageous sailors before a short stroll leads back to the ship.
