I found them thanks to the tourist junction and it was such a great surprise. It was my best tour and activy (aside the world cup) when I was in South Africa.
First, what I appreciate is that they made me pay the exact same price as I was on my own for the tour (a lot of people don't do the tour if you are only one and if they do, they make you pay for 2 people minimum).
Then the tour itself was just great and while doing it I had a lot of history. Richard and his associate know the history of their country, Durban and the townships really well and I learned a lot of things. We went to see Gandi house, then a creche in the township they try to hel (kids have nothing there) and someone house. I liked a lot the way it was done because it was not like we came to "the zoo" and take picture of misery and people as they were animals (like in Soweto). Here it was really respectful and the fact also we are not too many doing the tour (this time it was just me), make it really personal and it was great. People were really nice and sweet. I never felt unsafe at all. They even told me people were really happy that actually "White people" or people out of the township came to them to see how they live. We had a great and simple lunch (barbecue, nice meat) in the township. Thenk we went to see the market, where Nelson Mandela voted for the first time when he was out of jail. The tour is really complete and Richard doesn't count his time. Last but not least, I had a chance on the day to enter a zoulou ceremony and that was just amazing. It is my best memory of South Africa.
Durban is a really nice city (a lot of people told me bad things about it before) but I like it, like the atmosphere, found a lot of nice people (specially the owners of Rosetta House) and the food was amazing and cheap on Florida Road. I love it. If you go to Durban, please believe me, do a tour with Street Scene.
