Had a great tour in Langa (in Nov 2019). We loved having Luthando as our tour guide, he's a great guy, with a good sense of humour, and also touching upon the difficult parts of living in the township. Highly recommended.

We had an incredibly informative early afternoon walk through Langa with our great guide Zuzy. it's an eye-opener on many levels. the heart-warming part is the high sense of community thinking as well as the friendly people we met on our walk. Zuzy grew up in Langa and she loves sharing her knowledge about her hood, from times before, in and after Apartheid. It's a must do for everyone who's visiting South Africa and the support is highly appreciated.

The whole tour through Langa is filled to the brink with so much historical and cultural information provided by a sympathetic and well versed guide. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed it thoroughly and can recommended it to everyone visiting Cape Town. Ubuntu!

I was really keen to do this tour before I came to SA but particularly as there were very few tourists in town. It’s tricky wondering if you’re being exploitative looking at peoples lives and I asked Nele my guide about this but he said the tours are a great way to foster understanding and to bring much needed funds into an area and I agree. It was fascinating not just to see how much creativity and hard work goes in to making a decent life from a terrible situation (apartheid) but also to be able to talk to someone about current challenges and opportunities. I felt safe and welcomed and had an amazing couple of hours. I would highly recommend you to add this to any Cape Town schedule 😊

Incredible tour. Very informative look at Langa by people who are intensely proud of their community. Highly recommended. I only wish we had brought some walking cash.
