This was our first township tour so we had many questions, but our guide did an excellent job at explaining everything and took us all around Langa. For the price you get a great tour meeting many locals and learning about the culture. Highly recommended!

Nathi gave us a great tour in December, showing us many aspects of Langa, from the shacks to middle-class homes. He answered our questions in an engaged manner, and we'd recommend the tour to anyone.
