David Forrest is inviting you to join us as we explore Heidelberg and The Val District.  We start in Heidelberg, where local guide Bouwe Wieseman and his team, will show us the Heritage of Heidelberg, including the Klipkerk which is 151 years old. We then make our way to the farming district where Ludwig Ankiewicz explains why the region is so exceptional. 

Our next stop is the relatively unknown hamlet of Val, where we will be spending the nights at the lovely Val Hotel. Over the next two days, we will explore the fascinating History of Val and Villiers with stories of very colourful characters and stops at monuments of some very interesting and unusual historical events, we will even make a stop at our guide Ludwig’s farm. 

We finish off the tour with a stop in Balfour where we will visit the exquisite Welgelegen Manor, for a finger lunch and a fascinating tour of this beautifully restored Sir Herbert Baker mansion, which was once home to the Mostert Family.
