After visiting the Port Elizabeth Tourism Center, there were multiple township tours to choose from. We learned that in order to go on a township tour, you have to book with those who are authorized to give them. I spoke with a few of them and decided to go with Mosaic Tourism based on what he offered compared to the others. We were picked up and given a full tour of 4-5 townships in Port Elizabeth, The Red Location Museum & The Local Jazz Club. Craig was extremely knowledgeable of South African history, the history of the townships, and important figure heads. He speaks English and is extremely friendly. I was also impressed that he is heavily involved with the community and helping the townships with their charity efforts. You can tell he was appreciated by those who live in the townships. As we drove through the townships, everyone seemed to know him. We felt very safe and really got to understand how life is in the townships (which is what we were after). If you are thinking about doing a township tour, I highly suggest booking with Craig at Mosaic Tourism. We were in South Africa for a month and travelled all over the country; the Port Elizabeth township tour was the best guided tours we did! Ohhhh...he also provided light snacks to have while we were in the car, including stopping to try a few local foods in the township. Great Experience!!
