We had a great visit in Langa Town Ship and Nati was a good tour leader. We can highly recommend Sivewe tours if you are visiting in Cape Town.

We arrived and were greeted by Nati and drove into Langa with him, there we met Sivewe and had some great banter before our tour started, we learned about how he started the business and what it gives to the community. Some time was spent in the community centre before doing what we really wanted which was to walk and... More

After visiting a "favela" in Rio de Janeiro with a local guide, we were pretty sure this township tour would be as interesting. For those who are afraid of visiting like you would do in a "zoo", it's absolutely not the case: the guide is there to drive you through and explain the ways of living in the township and... More

We decided to visit a township to get a better sense of how the majority of Capetonians live, and we are so glad we did. We went with Cape Town Township Tours which is owned and led by gentlemen who were born and raised in Langa. - a close-in and and safe township. We were worried that it could be... More

This was one of the best experiences I have had in South Africa so far. Having lived in the country for almost a year I thought I already knew about life in a township. However, with his insightful, humble and detailed descriptions of life in Langa, Nati (our guide) certainly proved me wrong. This is a wonderful tour that highlights... More

Had a tour with guide, Gladstone who grew up and currently lives in the township. Gladstone told us "no question was too personal". Got a great perspective of life and history of townships.

The guide took us around Langa township and professionally explained the conditions of living in upper middle and lower classes. It was one of the best experiences we did in South Africa so we warmly recommend it!

Tando guided us on this visit to Langa, and did an excellent job. We saw what life is like in the townships and shanty towns that you see around nearly every South African town. The level of material prosperity is low, and by UK standards much of the living conditions are very poor. However the community spirit appears to be... More
