Owner description: Street Scene Tours was created by Sthembiso Mbonanbi, Jonas Barausse and Richard Powell, in early 2010, with one unique goal set at its core; to showcase Durban to Durbanites. As you can imagine this is by no means the conventional stance of a tour operator, but Street Scene is not your conventional tour operator. They are constantly exploring Durban and its surrounds, ever on the lookout for nuggets of history and the many hidden gems the province has to offer.Durban and its surrounding areas are filled with a rich tapestry of history which is largely unknown not only to tourists, but also its residents. After all, Mahatma Gandhi made Durban his home for many years, and it was just outside Durban that Nelson Mandela cast his vote in the 1994 elections that forever changed South Africa. The great King Shaka Zulu also spent much time on the very land upon which Durbanites now call home.From the city's architecture to its people, Street Scene aims to engulf its guests in all that is Durban. They started out with their focus on locals but soon realized that when you create a set of tours that residents of the city love, you are guaranteed to have tours that visitors to the city will find riveting and unique. There is nothing conventional about Street Scene Tours, and that's just the way we like it.

Street Scene Tours was the most exciting tourist tour I experienced since I am in South Africa. I saw Durban like never before! Together immerged in key community hubs, we could admire, smell and taste the beauty of the Zulu culture as well as the warmth of its people. The sites chosen for the visit were unusual and exclusive; it is only thanks to the team of Street Scene Tours that we could access it so naturally and enjoy it so much. I could discover, understand and even feel part of the Zulu family for an exceptional moment! I feel deeply enriched with this unique experience of colours, sounds and spices. The team was very professional and friendly. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge! I can’t wait for the next trip!

Did the walking tour of Durban with a local guide - Iwazi. We were promptly collected from our hotel and driven to downtown Durban. Highly informative and engaging. Thoroughly recommended.
