I highly recommend this experience. Lizo and his community welcomed me and gave me an insight into the reality of life in South Africa, which is difficult to see as a tourist. The typical tours, recommended neighborhoods to visit and places to stay show a very specific side of South Africa which is not representative of the experience of most people in the country. Lizo was very open, reflective and passionate and he was willing to address honestly difficult questions. I had reservations about doing a township tour, which I feared could be an unhelpful process, satisfying the curiosity of privileged people rather than benefiting the community. On the contrary, this tour was very sensitive in its organisation, the community seemed on board with the initiative, it felt mutually beneficial. Lizo gives his community a voice and a face, and helps make sense of the different facets of this complex country. It may feel like it's not helping much to go visit Langa without 'doing' anything about the struggles the population faces, but it is the first step to acknowledge rather than ignore disturbing issues, to try and understand the barriers faced by people and what maintains such dysfunctions in the system. Langa community has a story to tell and listening to it, supporting local entrepreneurs, forming your own opinions and spreading the word is something minimal but still meaningful, that we can all do.
To note that I went as a solo female and felt completely safe. Uber drove me to the community centre and there were no issues on the journey or over there.
Thank you Lizo!

What an amazing experience! MC made us feel very comfortable and gave us an authentic taste of Langa township. It was educational and very fun. It was a private tour which we enjoyed immensely and we were able to ask any questions. He was very informative and eager to show us parts of South Africa that has had a huge influence on the history and continues to do so! Highly highly highly recommend going on a tour and supporting the local community.

We used MC. as our tour guide on a family holiday in Cape Town in January. His passion, expertise & professionalism made our time spent with him unforgettable.
The kids ranged in age from 17 to 6 & he kept them all interested.
I highly recommend MC if you are looking for a tour guide in beautiful Cape Town.

A friend who used to work with MC several years ago recommended that we go on a tour of Langa with him. It was a meaningful experience that will have an impact way beyond our stay in South Africa. MC explains things in detail and you can tell that he is passionate about sharing not only Langa but especially its cultural background and implications. We couldn't have wished for a better guide.

This tour was a must do. We had MC as our tour guide and he was so welcoming and knowledgeable. He made us feel very comfortable, and all of us felt like we learned so much about a part of South African history in an authentic, “on the ground” kind of way. If you’re looking for an experience outside of a museum to immerse yourself in South Africa and its local communities, this is absolutely what you should do. It was one of the best things we did while there.

This was a phenomenal tour of the Langa Township. The insights about the history, cultural and current way of life brought deep perspective to the people's struggle. Our tour guide Lizzo is a true historian with lived experience and a mission to make life better for all that he can.

I contacted Lizo to take me to his hometown of Langa township. He made sure to take me personally despite the fact I was traveling solo. His mission is what drives him. Lizo believes and breathe changing the narrative for township residents. Book Lizo! He is knowledgeable, patient and a good human being.
