Me and my husband had 6 days in Cape Town. Since it was our first visit (to both the country and the city), we wanted to explore to city and its diverse aspects. One of the things we were hoping to see, was how a large part of the community lives. The township tour with E.Zizwe was enlightening! The guide,... More

This was one of the best tours we did in Namibia and much of the fee you pay goes to support the local community. It is $400 and you have to pay in cash. We started off walking through one of the established township areas and learnt a lot about life there from our guide. We then went to a... More

Thabang Titotti was a wonderful guide on our half-day tour of the Townships near Cape Town. He was very knowledgeable and easily answered questions from us and our kids. We felt like we learned a lot of South African history from a black perspective in just a half-day with him. We started our tour in District Six, which was a... More

BEWARE! There are certain tour guides with the African Eagle Group whom you should be very wary of. We booked a tour through the Cape Tourism office in Cape Town. We paid for a tour of Langa and Khayelitsha. The tour began pleasantly enough with a walking tour of Langa, and then the tour guide decides to give us a... More

You have not really seen Cape Town until you have seen the Townships. We spent a very important and informative morning with Thabang Titotti. He has a great understanding of township life having grown up in one. He is also very personable. Making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. He picks you up where you are staying and will... More

Mike Zuma made our tour incredibly informative, fun and enlightening. This tour was not on our radar initially, but we are so happy we experienced it. You won't regret it...this is REAL Capetown. This is the experience I talk about when telling friends of our time in Capetown, and that is saying a lot. Capetown is full of incredible sights... More

I was traveling by myself and could spend only 24 hours in cape Town. My hotel organized the tour for me with Thabang Titoti (from E.zizwe Travel and Tours) and I am very grateful they managed to accommodate a last minute tour for me. It was just me, and it lasted a full Sunday morning. I really liked the tour,... More

We were supposed to get lunch with the tour but that didn't happen. We did get to drink the home brew and our guide was very personable with us and sharing his town. This is a must do if you like to see and feel the culture when you visit. CapeTown was very nice, but there is a stark difference... More

I had a fantastic tour of several townships in Cape Town with Thabang Titotti of Ezizwe Tours. Thabang was very informative, knew a number of people who lived in the townships so we had more of an insider view, very friendly, and more than willing to accommodate the tour to your particular interests. I highly recommend him and the tours.... More
