A really "not to miss" tour. We were really happy to have the chance to see real life in Langa - and we did! Be prepared for some surprises!! Our guide, Abosh, did a great job of explaining the history and culture of the place and how it fits into past and present Cape Town. Abosh went out of his... More

Incredible tour that everyone needs to do. Unlike any other activity in CT, this company doesn't take pre bookings or money, but do not stress at all - they know the town like no one else, they live their themselves and you are in safe hands. I felt that 2 hours was almost a little long in the heat, but... More

We went on a private township tour last week with Siviwe's company. It was a great, personalized experience. We have 3 children, ages 8, 5, and 1, and each one of them had a wonderful time. It was informative, unexpected, and truly a must-see in Cape Town. Our best decision was to contact Siviwe instead of going with the company... More

We have been for a week in Cape town and visiting many neighbour hoods. We wanted also to see and experience live in one of Cape town townships. We booked a private tour at Sivewe Township tours. Sivewe made a short introduction of the history of the Langa Township which was interesting, the tour afterwards was uninspiring. Most of Langa... More

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

Really great experience. Tour guide was great, answered all questions that we had. We visited different parts of the township from dorms to shacks. Highly recommend!

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
