I recently did my 2nd photographic township tour with Peter Haarhoff. The first one being about 7 yrs ago. This time we visited the township of Langa, where we met the locals in the streets, meat market and shebeen and even grabbed an excellent cuppuccino at the town centre. 😁 The people were friendly and happy to pose for photos, and together with our local resident guide that joined us we felt quite safe. There was a lot of opportunity for photographs and it was a great time to increase my knowledge of flash and reflector portrait photography, with Peter willing to assist and advise. As always, Peter’s outwardly, friendly going nature made the residents feel relaxed and happy to be photographed. Another brilliant photography outing. Thank you Peter! Look forward to the next one.

We had the full day photography tour with Carrie . She was a fabulously knowledgeable guide and really good company for the day. She took lots of time instructing my husband in the use of the camera which has resulted in him taking some really memorable photos. We started early morning in Carrie’s recommendation and it was certainly the right thing to do as we avoided all the huge queues in Boulders Bay and Cape point. We also visited places that we probably would not have seen on our own. This is a definite MUST DO when visiting Cape Town

What a fantastic day with Liza, our photographer guide in Cape Town. Liza leant my 12 yr old daughter a camera and by the end of the day she had learnt about all of the basics, and was enthusiastically practising different ISO’s, Brightness levels, Shutter Speeds etc. What impressed me most about Lisa was her adaptability to our characters. She changed the itinerary quickly realising that my daughter would not enjoy taking landscape scenery photos and instead we went to the “coloured houses” for some Street Photography. The day was totally tailored to us and as a result we had great fun feeding the Ostriches at the Ostrich Farm, and took a private Malay cooking lesson with the wonderful characterful and delightful Fadela teaching us to make Samosa’s. Liza went out of her way to engage and involve and it was an excellent day. Thankyou!

Liza is the most thoughtful, interesting photo guide we have ever had. Aside from showing us her beautiful city, she has taken my wife to a new level of enthusiasm and skill with her photography. It was a very special, memorable day - thank you Liza.

My wife, Jan, and I spent 3 days with Cape Town Photo Tours' head photo guide, Liza recently. Liza was very accommodating in seeing that all my photo requests were met. We toured the peninsula, rode the cable car up Table Mountain, went to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, had a wonderful private cooking class conducted by local celebrity, Faldela, and did a wine tasting tour, And thank you Liza for finally getting Jan to use a real DSLR (yours) for the very first time. I've been trying for years and you succeeded in just a few minutes. I would recommend Cape Town Photo Tours to anyone visiting the area and particularly photographers who are unfamiliar with Cape Town and the environs.
