When we started the Business six years ago our focus and specialist expertise was in the townships where two of Camissa owners once resided. Having gained extensive freelance guiding experience for various tour operator service providers in Cape town we so a gap in the market for a tour operator that will offer a service that is different and unique putting more emphasis on traditions customs values and impact of urbanization on all the above rather than focusing on the political history which lead to the development of township communities our business is simple and focused. We conduct Day Tours in Cape Town and its surroundings and facilitate township marketing experiences.The Camissa Team looks forward to hosting you on one of our tours we invite you to do the right thing and get the full picture.

We did their Sunday Township and Gospel tour with a group of four. Before we left we had high expectations of this trip but these were not met. We started with a short drive through District 6 for some historical background information. Our driver Samantha told us a lot about the history of the townships and its people. In her... More

While like many I hesitated due to fears of being voyeuristic of poverty, one really can't understand or appreciate the rest of a trip to the Western Cape without taking this tour. Very professional friendly guides detailing everything warts and all but ultimately delivering a very positive message. I combined my tour with a visit to Robben Island in the... More

We had a very nice day during the Camissa tour. We went first to a township in Cape Town en in the afternoon we have visit Robben island. A real must for getting a better understanding of the other side of Cape Town. Camissa is very professional organization.

We had a very short amount of time in Cape Town and managed to fit in two full day tours that were incredible with Camissa Day Tours. We loved every portion of our Cape Day Tour and Langa Township Tour. Our guide was friendly, funny, on-time, efficient, and very professional. We are looking forward to our next visit to Cape...

Together with my son (age 21) we took this excellent tour to district 6 and the township of Langa. Samantha drove us around, ZinZi walked us around. A real must for getting a better understanding of the other side of Cape Town. Very professional, very respectful and very personal. Your visit will also support the township community. You won't regret!

Visiting the townships seems an important part of getting a balanced view of South Africa today. While it sounds like Camissa is helping to support positive development in the community, we seem to have caught them on an "off day." Our tour had already begun when the driver got a call to go back for three people who'd been forgotten... More
