I've booked the tour on recommendation of friends from Germany. It was an awesome experience, very informative and entertaining. I was stunned how the people in the township welcomed us. Me and my family felt safe the entire time. Thanks again to Nathi, the tour guide... great guy ;)

My husband and I were fortunate enough to attend a tour led by Nati this past March. I can't recommend this tour enough! Nati was warm, knowledgable, open, and welcoming. The tour itself gave a "real" view into the lives of people living in Langa and allowed us a chance to interact with locals, all whom were welcoming. We visited... More

Our wonderful guide Zuzeka provided us with some great insight on what life is like at Langa. We were able to visit a local man called Shedrik in his shack in the township and see firsthand how skillfully he built his home with recycled material. He shared a few anecdotes of how he ended up living at Langa and what... More

We were motivated to book the tour by our children that were staring at the buildings on our way from CPT to the city bowl. After having completed the tour with our wonderful guide Connie, we can recommend anyone visiting Cape Town to have their impression of the city completed with a visit to the townships and compare it to...

We enjoyed the tour with Zuzeka, who grew up in Langa very much. It was interesting to see the different ways people live in Langa and get an understanding of the history and possible future of the township and the people. Zuzeka is a very good guide and answered all of our questions. Highly recommended when you visit Cape Town!

Thank you to Zuzeka, our guide, that gave us a perfect informative but also entertaining tour through Langa. I would love to come back and learn more about life in Langa and meet more people like Cedric to share experiences. Definitely a highlight on our South Africa trip.

We visited Langa in March and our guide, Luthando, was excellent. We walked around the township for about 3 hours, seeing how people live, talking with some of the locals and discussing many aspects of life there with Luthando. Luthando was very informed and shared his wealth of knowledge and insights honestly. It was privilege to gain some understanding of... More
