Every part of it has another history or story. So much to see and learn. It is also nice for beautiful views. Don't come back without seeing it.

The maps run out. You can get the information on the Internet. The tourist center will just point you to where you can book a tour. The person that was at the counter was not very knowledgeable or even enthusiastic about route 67 or any other questions asked about other attractions. This is the first Tourist Information Center that did... More

There were so many features on this morning walk that I can only say "Don't miss this outing!" The biggest SA flag, the mosaics, the art works....were all just great

We had a lovely walk around Port Elizabeth exploring bits of Route 67. The tourist information centre was good but should offer more information about this interesting route to visitors who may not be aware of it. They have lots on offer but should expand on it to improve visitors experience. For instance the cafe by the light house should... More

There is an informative pamphlet, available from the Nelson Mandela Bay tourism offices at the Donkin reserve. The said pamphlet has a map of the route and also... More

Before setting out to view these 67 commemorative artworks, go to the visitors' centre at the Donkin Reserve and pick up a pamphlet on the walk - not only does it give you a siting of all the listed works, but provides commentary as well. If you are unfamiliar with the recent history of SA, then I would consider using... More

How delightful to see how the art community of PE is clubbing together to make the city a must see destination in South Africa from an arts appreciation perspective

I did the walking tour of Route 67 with the guide based at the Donkin Reserve, Tony. It was extremely enjoyable seeing the artworks in the context of the city, and being guided by someone who is passionate and knowledgeable added immeasurably to the experience. I learnt so much. It's really worth going with a guide.
