Pilgrims Rest Tours specialize in large group tours, in either English or Afrikaans. Tours can be tailor made to suit your needs, combining tours of the Village Museums, Gold Panning or Alanglade House Museum and adapted to interests of the guests, time constraints and budget. 

Each guest has the opportunity to pan for gold themselves, and keep whatever gold and other metals or minerals they find. We present a brief history of gold from Iron age times to present day, and also explain the geology of the region, in relation to the discovery of gold in South Africa.

School tour organisers are welcome to request certain points be included in the tour to reflect the school curriculum. After the Village tour each pupil is given a question sheet to fill out as part of the excursion.
