FRANCOISE DESTRIEUX ARMOUR

Registered Tourist Guide (Cape Town and Western Cape)

Françoise was born in France but has made South Africa her home since childhood.

Françoise is passionate about this fascinating country and is very knowledgeable about the Western Cape. After many years of showing it to her visiting family, friends and her friends’ French visitors, it was a no-brainer that she turned to tour guiding when the corporate world lost its appeal.

As a qualified Western Cape tour guide, she loves showing off this region and sharing with curious visitors the scenic wonders and historic aspects of this fabulous country. South Africa is like an onion – peel a layer and you find another one; its history is short but fascinating and it’s about far more than the infamous apartheid and the famous Nelson Mandela. It’s about pioneers and slavery and skulduggery and courage and many multi-faceted characters.

Françoise will be more than happy to tell you all about it!
