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!

You will spend the day with considerate, like minded travellers enjoying the flavours, sounds and stories that make Cape Town so unique.
