Overview

At the studio & gallery at 66 Main Street you can hear the stories behind my paintings and get a glimpse of my own life and work as an African artist. Visiting me is of course free but as an accredited Tour Guide I also offer township tours: Expect a fascinating experience of African culture, food, lifestyle and empowerment far beyond the usual Garden Route "routine". Optional: visit local artists.

Peggy is a very warm hearted, well connected woman, who build a business and moved out of the township herself. As she put it: "there's no magic". Connected to how life in the township is, we were very impressed by her hard work as an...More

We did a walking tour & visited a school along with a preschool in the Knysna township. Peggy has a very warm friendly personality but it seemed very obvious a sales pitch for money for the township was her purpose. She also pushed her store...More

Everyone visiting Knysna should go on this tour to see the true Africa. Peggy is an amazing guide and so knowledgeable. We now understand so much more about the history of the townships. Definitely to be recommended.
