“A great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I booked the afternoon tour. It was a great experience for me. Tour Guide Ella is such a fantastic person. I admire her how she takes care of underprivileged children. The stay in her home I will never forget.

“The best thing we did in SA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We went on the township tour with Ella and Penny during our stay in SA, and it was easily the best thing we did on our travels. Ella is a great great tour guide, and has a very positive outlook. We were able to ask her any questions we wanted, and she showed us many aspects of township life. It was really good to see the projects going on in the community. I don't think it would be right to go to SA without visiting a township, and this tour is a great way to see what township life is like, and how people are overcoming adversity. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone passing through Knysna.

“Great and lovely Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Just do it and have a look at the ones that are not born on the lucky side of life.
The tour is the best way to see the real life in the township of Knysna but also to have a lot of fun with children, the sucess of education and the work of motivated people.

“Compassion, determination, patience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

What we have seen on our tour through the Township of Knysna has had a great impact. Don't just think about doing something for the ones that are not born on the lucky side of life, do it, and do it now!
The work you Ella and Penny are doing is simply amazing. It starts with little things such as giving dogs water or just talk with the kids. What you guys at Emzini Tours are doing is more than charity. You give the kids perspectives to break out of a vicious circle, that locks the kids up in the Townships in ZA. You show them, that there is will, that there is a possibility, that there is a life outside - simply by being with them, talking, playing with them and giving them a decent education (not in maths or geography but in behavior, values, etc). You do great work. Thank you very much!

“Lovely motivated people willing to open their lovely home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour that Ella and Penny gave our family and friends this week. The visit to the preschool, deep understandings and descriptions of the township and it's peoples, the drum lessons and the quick introduction to 'clicking' was a very memorable time. Very hospitable motivated people with a great business that generates returns for themselves and the communities that they live in. Well worth it.
