Four decades of experience in the travel and hospitality industry means that Lew has plenty of valuable advice to give – and interesting stories to tell. Besides understanding the nuts and bolts of how the sector works, he has travelled far and wide. His connections are enviable and he has been endorsed as one of the best concierge-style services by some of the top travel magazines. You can read some of his press coverage below.

 

‘Lew was, and still is, one of the big characters in our industry and very few people didn’t know him.’

A tour of Cape Town, World Design Capital 2014

Forget fancy galleries – in Cape Town, 2014 World Design Capital, the most exciting work is in the townships and once-grungy inner-city areas.

THE BASICS

There is an enormous amount of art and design to see in Cape Town, but you have to know where to find it. Recommended guides include, for fine art, Natalie Bulwer, for bespoke tours Lew Rood and, for planning entire holidays or just days out, concierge Michelle Snaddon .

To explore independently, a good starting point is to download one of several design routes from mapmyway.co.za, as well as the visitors’ guide available on capetown.travel. Many of the hottest designers in Cape Town are based in two edgy but interesting areas, Woodstock and the city centre.
