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...

Samantha did a great job at taking the time to explain the "Apartheid"-history and current situation of South Africa. She took us to Langa Township where we visited the baptist church (including choir!) and after that we walked through the township with a resident. In that way we were able to really see how people live and to talk to... More

We visited two townships in Cape Flats region of Cape Town with Camissa. Our guides were residents of the Langa Township that we toured and their knowledge of the area and pride in its progress infused the experience. A big plus was that in Langa we got out of the van and walked through through the community, visiting a school... More

We took this tour with Samantha, who is an amazing guide and inspiration, having come from Langa herself. We met a local guide who took us by foot through the township, seeing various types of accommodation, from a room for 3 families to an iron shack, with some cardboard on the walls in order to keep out the cold!
