Positive point :
Walking in langa township informative...
Negative point :
...But too short (1 hour)
It's not an half day tour (8:30am -12:30am) ==> reality : pick up at 9:30am and drop off at 11:45am
Offer too expensive (670rand/pers) regarding To the time and the explanation (too limited)
Difference between what is announced on the website and the tour itself
To conclude :
Disappointed of this township tour
I am convinced that we can find a better one
Maybe we were not Lucky
I specify that I'm not used To put a review on google
We were not sure we wanted to have a township tour, and i finally booked a tour with Camissa Travel which was recommanded from the Backpacker (le Routard). Our driver, Nelson, was very friendly and passionnated about history, we learned so much with him, he put things into perspective and gave us a chance to try to understand the history of Cape Town, South Africa and the townships. We had the chance to walk into a township and to have contacts with the people living here. We could see that Langa is trying to improve the living of these habitants.
We felt very safe during the tour, and at no moment we had an intrusiv feeling. I would recommand it again and again. Thank you for this experience.
You have to do it. Nelson and simon were really two exceptionnal guides for this tour. You cant miss this experience just go ! Nelson and simon thanks a lot again, we wont forget you, you are nice guys !! See you soon we hope
Educational, powerful, fascinating, insightful. Nelson and Seymour were phenomenal guides.
Must do when in Cape Town. It is a part of South African live and history you simply cannot ignore. The driver (Mpumzi) was really knowledgeable and gave a good overview of how the segregation formed over the years, The walking guide (Songs) is born and raised in the Langa township and can tell you everything you want to know. To be able to see inside the township houses and walk around the streets was a really valuable experience.
