“We have put together some special local experiences which offer travellers the opportunity to immerse themselves in Hermanus rather than skimming the surface.” Danny and Shirley (Going Roaming Founders

Shirley Craies and Danny Myburgh are passionate about travel, food and people. The marrying of these into Going Roaming was a natural progression for the friends and business partners. 

“There is no better way to get to know a place than through its food, wine and the people who produce and prepare it,” says Danny. She adds that they’ve combined culinary, wine or artisanal experiences to create unique day-trip experiences for travellers looking for something more than an off-the-shelf tour. 

“Rich, textured and layered experiences that showcase Hermanus’ foodies, winemakers and specialists are what we’re about. Hermanus and the Overstrand’s recognition as a UNESCO City of Gastronomy reiterates that this region is world-class when it comes to culinary experiences, and we’re excited to be sharing these with travellers to our seaside town,” adds Shirley.
