Touring the Langa township was such an eye opening experience. Our guide Chippa was so knowledgeable about the history and the culture of the area, as he himself is a resident. Anyone visiting Cape Town needs this experience to see how 60% of the population lives. Make sure to soak in all the hugs and high fives from the sweet... More

We did our Langa township tour in a very small group with only one further participant besides the two of us. Our guide was Chippa, who is very authentic as he grew up in the Langa township himself. We learned a lot about the history & development, the people, the culture and the current projects running for improvement of the... More

Our guide was Chippa and he was very friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. We learned so much not only from him but those we interacted with during our tour. No visit to South Africa is complete without a visit to the townships, it is an important part of South Africa's past, present, and future. I encourage everyone that comes to Cape... More

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...

Nathi, our tour guide, provided great knowledge about Langa Township and was able to give us an insight into how people continue to live in the Township. He showed us different parts of the area and was willing to answer all questions. It is a very humbling experience and I would certainly recommend the tour to anyone visiting Cape Town,... More

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!
