I can't say enough about this township tour. This was my first visit to Cape Town, and South Africa overall, and aside from playing with baby lion cubs (who wouldn't love that!), doing this tour was our most memorable and wonderful experience. Sivewe took us on a private cycling tour throughout Langa (lucky for us the rainy weather scared off the other patrons) and he shared a wealth of information with us about the township, the people, the history and the culture of the township. Probably the most memorable moment was when we were cycling by a local club (which was so small it could only really fit 10 people at best) and I insisted that we go in and I danced with some of the locals (not part of the official tour by any means). The locals thought the sight of this 34 year old white tourist dancing to their music was just hilarious (in a good way i hope) and we all had a great time. The performances of the happy feet children was also a highlight! They were all so friendly and passionate about their dancing it was inspiring. As for safety, I never ever felt like I was in danger and our car remained safe and sound outside the visitors centre for the entire duration of the tour. If you do this tour, I would definitely recommend you do the cycling tour. You can cover so much more ground than a walking tour and it was wonderful to be out in the open air interacting with the locals, seeing and hearing the vibe of the township. At one point we passed by another tour company whose tour consisted of a driver with the tourists sitting in the backseat of a car. They saw us on our bikes and you could see the instant jealousy in their eyes. If you are contemplating doing this tour and my advice to you is JUST DO IT! You won't be disappointed. Also I'd like to say that this is the first and only trip advisor review I have ever written. I don't usually tend to make the time to write reviews, but this is the first time in my life where I have felt so strongly about an experience, I had to share it.
