My wife and I joined the afternoon tour guided by Samantha, a friendly and energetic lady. Conversation with her in a car was impressive we learned a lot, which would not have been in the ordinary travel guide books. At Langa Area, Zingi walked with us and he also showed us banch of places in town. While having been mind-boggled... More

We took a few things to the pre school and playing with these little ones was very humbling. Dont waste your time with big tour groups this is the tour to do if you are interested in facts and...

we have visited the townships with Richard and Zingisa, who gave us a walking tour.Richard was perfectly on time at our hotel. We were deeply impressed by the hope and optimism for the future they have under difficult circumstances. It was an eye-opener for us all. Richard and Zingisa have a profound knowledge of the south-african history. After the the... More

Although not the best day trip we did in Cape Town, it was an educational experience of one of the townships. We would have liked to have walked through the second township. The guides were both understanding of our questions and also enlightening about their experiences living in the township. Unfortunately our Robben Island boat was cancelled whilst we were... More

We had an amazing guide (Richard) he really knew what he's talking about. It was a very informative tour but also a very emotional experience - especially the Gospelsingers in the church! Thank you!

We enjoyed our trip to the township. Our guide 'Lo' told us many interesting things. Our visit at the Church was unforgettable. Regrettably two persons of our group had booked the tour to Robben-island at 13.00 pm. The guide wanted to give them some time to lunch and therefor our trip was abreviated (3 hours instead of 4).

We did the sunday-townshiptour. It was impressive and confrontational. The guides know a lot about the townships because they are living there. They were very respectfull, sincere and have a great knowledge. Their vision to (post) apartheid was very instructive. The church service was also impressive.

Took an afternoon tour to township. Very insightful and learnt a lot. I took this tour because you go on a walk with a resident from the area. The balance is just right. It is not invasive like a zoo but more of a walk round which I really appreciated. I asked so many questions and they honest answers made... More

I really enjoyed this tour. It is challenges to not feel as if one is a voyeur to others pain, but this tour was done respectfully. There was excellent education, conversation, and the guide felt honest and sincere in sharing his personal reflections about post-Apartheid townships experiences. I would recommend this. Wear comfortable shoes. My only concern was problems with... More

My boyfriend and I did the Eco Township tour and we enjoyed it very much! Our guides Samantha and Zingi, were very knowledgeable and friendly people. The experience of taking the train and walk through Langa on your own pace, is the best way to feel the atmosphere. The tour ends with a delicious traditional lunch. We would definitely recommand...
