We wanted to do a township tour but weren't sure which organisation to go with. I have to say we were not disappointed, We did the "Real City Tour" and took 2 children which we were slightly apprehensive about initially, but soon realised we were in safe hands. Our guide comes from the township and seemed to know many people. He knew the history of every building in the main city and the ins and outs of life in the townships. He pointed out many activities going on that would have gone unnoticed if not pointed out to us. We visited a township school where we were warmly greeted by the headmistress.
Despite 20 years passing since Aparteid the disparity in life situations between rich and poor is still very evident and is something which our kids will appreciate thanks to this informative tour.
It is nice to know that 25% of the money we spent on the tour is fedback into projects within the townships and it was good to see some of this through the craft shops, school and other projects which we visited. If you are going to P.E you MUST do a township tour to appreciate the real side of this amazing city. These guys show you this all in a matter of a few hours. Well done guys
