Lucky and Lost was started in late 2016 by two South African travellers who are passionate about travelling and people but don’t like stiff traditional tours. We realised that our most memorable travel experiences were with locals who showed us the best places to go, how to experience them and the friends we made along the way! We want to provide the same experience for other travellers in our home town.


The secret for an amazing tour.. To NOT feel like you are on a tour!

  •   I joined the peninsula tour and would recommend it! We combined multiple activities (especially the wine tasting is of added value in this tour), with quite a lot of information and also time to walk around yourselves. They adapted the tour to the busy circumstances...More
