It has been my second time in this tour, (this time with my parents), and I cannot be more grateful to Nahmla for her treatment. She explained everything in detail, with her lovely character, what made more special the experience. Highly recommend!!

Very interesting and challenging to see the other side of Cape Town. Don was a great guide and showed us around the township and shared personal stories with us and even some homemade beer! It was a stark reminder of the inequality that still exists.

Learnt loads from this tour. It's unlike looking at people's lives in a fish bowl but understanding their lives. For those who wonder what's in those townships go and learn and see for yourselves. You'll be pleasantly surprised what you see and learn ;)
