If you are in PE, take this township tour. Our guide, Gugu, was fantastic!
We were picked up from our hotel in the morning at 9am and dropped back off about 3 1/2 hours later in time for lunch. We were able to meet residents who currently live in the townships and ask them questions.
It was very powerful to hear Gugu's personal stories. She was very open and really cares about showing others this aspect of South African lives. Gugu's english is very good, and our driver, Gershom, was able to smoothly navigate the traffic.
This is a must do. Even for those like me who already knew about the history of townships, I can tell you this: Knowing about it from school it is NOT the same as seeing it first hand with a guide from the townships. A tour like this can really put things into perspective. Definitely a must do.
