Trains were delayed so our tour included local shared taxi, bike, foot and car. Sabu was very informative and gave us a great introduction to the township. This was a very personal tour - not packaged or on a coach. We have no experience of other similar tours but this one was well worthwhile.

I visited Langa and was duly impressed by the huge poverty of the inhabitants, tempered by smiles and, in the children, the hope in their eyes...it is a sobering experience...and each township has its own feel and character...

I would've much rather have done this than shark-cage diving IMO. This tour really shows you the history of South Africa but also it's current systems and social hierarchy. I had my first Braai BBQ here and the tour guide is not only hilarious but informative. They were very hospitable and even took us to stellenbosch gardens afterwards. I also... More

We did the evening tour to Langa we were picked up at our hotel and taken to Langa the biggest township in Cape Town. We met the guide as soon as we got into Langa and we tried a smiley which is a goats head that is cooked on a fire like a barbecue. We then visited 3 different houses... More

To get to Langa Township, I rode on a train and a taxi with the people from Langa Township. After a hardy meal of fish and spices , we rode our bikes around the township interacting with the residents from the local artists to teachers and students . Later in the afternoon the atmosphere changed as people returned home from... More

Our family (of 10) took a private day tour to the Townships around Cape Town with Mr. ThabangTitoti. In short: highly recommended!! More details: Once in the townships we first visited a school where we were introduced to the most adorable, sweet children. Despite being from very (!!!) different worlds, we connected naturally -- mostly thanks to the unconditional love... More

We wanted family from overseas to experience as many aspects of South Africa's history and culture and Ubizo's bike tour of Langa and lunch/entertainment at Mzansi's Restaurant was a great experience for all ages! The guides (Mike and Sabu) were well informed and passionate about their community and the bikes provided a fun way to navigate Langa. All of us... More

We spent our last day in cape tour on a township tour through langa. We did everything on a tandem bike, which was a lot of fun. Our guide zuma and another guy waka were looking out of us and we felt save at any time. Zuma was a great guide, who gave us authentic insights about life in langa.... More

I researched before we went and we booed with ezizwe travel and Thabang picked us up from our hotel on time and without asking for a deposit prior, we enjoyed a truly memorable experience. There were only two others and the experience was intimate and very personal. I cannot recommend Thabang highly enough, we did six weeks visiting 9 countries... More
