I would highly recommend the 1/2 day township tour. I have previously toured Soweto in Johannesburg and was not expecting such a personal interactive experience in Cape Town. My tour guide, Song, picked me up at my hotel. He gave us a drive through of district 6 filling us with history the entire ride to the Langa Township. This tour gives you the opportunity to walk through Langa with one of the residents and visit one of the hostels that the men used to live in while their families were out in the western cape area. To be able to visit this home (it was actually the home of our walking tour guide, Sakhe) and enter one of the rooms that 3 families share and briefly meet with the residents was a life changing experience. We also visited a local school house to interact with the cute kids in school there. As Sakhe warned us, hug one and you hug them all - but I didn't mind. After visiting the hostel home you take a quick break at the craft stand where the proceeds of the sale are shared with the local residents. They had unique things that I had not seen at St George's Square in the craft stands that are supposedly/hopefully made locally. I bought a bag and you can tell it was made by an individual, not a machine in a factory. Song and Sakhe made the tour an amazing experience. They were open to any questions about living in the township and daily life. Song even took me to a bank when I spent all my money at the craft stand and needed more in order to pay for my tour! 5 stars

I was on the Township tour yesterday and our guide Godfrey was wonderful and such an inspiration, he’s proud of the achievements of the Langa community and so he should be, a great insight into the local people and their on going struggles, this tour is the highlight of my stay in Cape Town, I highly recommend it, also the guide that showed us round the house where he lives etc gave us a feel of what it is really like in this community, the experience has changed my whole perception of Cape Town, brilliant experience, thank you both, I will never forget my visit.

This experience is a must. Having toured Soweto only a few days before this experience was much more personal and inclusive. The walking tour with a local guide was eye opening. From seeing the kids in the local preschool to being invited into the the hostel accommodation and visiting the street markets it's a day you won't forget.

This half day tour was supposed to be 4 hours long, and ours was only 3 hours. It did not take us to all the districts mentioned in the tour description. And the pick up in the hotel was rather confusing. We were waiting for them in the hotel lobby. When they turned up to pick us up, he said he'd been waiting for us for 20 minutes. But we had been in the lobby for 45 minutes waiting for them, and the hotel receptionist knew we were waiting as well.

Thank you for your review you do realise that you were not the only guest on the bus the driver guide had several pick ups before your pick up your hotel has two entrances one on St Georges mall and the other is on Hans Strydom ave when the driver guide called the office struggling to locate you he was at this entrance. Also our tour duration is 3,5 hours including the return transfer on get your guide site their site does not allow us to check 3,5 hours it is either 3 hours or 4 hours our website www.gocamissa.co.za will give you a clear description and duration of the tour I have mentioned this to the 3rd party site to rectify with the aim of avoiding this from happening again.
