The Voortrekker Monument tour is filled with interesting stories, history and a few secrets. I will show and tell you about these gems that can be found in this granite icon of Pretoria.

Our tour will start at the Quo vadis sculpture and will end at a canon that was dangerous to those in front of her, as well as those behind her.

You will be shown the worlds longest marble frieze, depicting the everyday life of the Voortrekkers as well as significant events of the Great Trek.

From the viewing area, we will also be able to have a birds eye view of the Jacaranda city and a bit of the province of gold, namely Gauteng.

The Cenotaph Hall with its tapestries, and the museum will also be visited. It is also here that I will let you in on a bit of a secret surrounding the monument.

Marius links local with international history to give a broad perspective of South African history in the bigger context. The tour was made exceptionally interesting by Marius' knowledge of the history as well as the monument. We would definitely recommend it to locals with existing knowledge of history as well as foreigners with zero knowledge of South African history.

Marius provides an insightful tour of the Voortrekker monument and provides lots of interesting facts about Pretoria and South Africa. I highly recommend this tour for any tourist, history junkie or any South African citizen with a interest in our heritage. Marius is energetic, humorous and a perfect tour guide. The Voortrekker monument is not only appealing to anyone with a keen interest in architecture, but also tells the the tale of the great trek and its influences on modern South Africa. Bring along your camera!
