Enjoyed the cultural tour, particularly the trip to a shanty town, where we learnt of the great progress being made to replace the shanty towns with brick building accommodation.

A fascinating tour. Packed more into a half day than we ever expected, though we never felt rushed. The tour was enhanced by our driver/guide who clearly cares passionately about his country, he was a mine of relevant and interesting information from beginning to end.

Our guide Norman was wonderful. The township tour exceeded our expectations, we had a chance to meet the residents and learn about their lives, hear the children's choir sing and visit one of the shanties, The resident's resilience and spirit was remarkable and awe inspiring considering the harsh conditions in which they live and the cruel treatment they suffered under apartheid. Everyone should know their stories and I know I am glad I did.

This tour should be a must für all interested visitors. I've learned a lot about the history of apartheid and the townships. Dustin was a wonderful guide and his explanations
helped me to understand this wonderful country a little bit better.

Outstanding tour! It's great to see the positive things happening in the South African townships. Some of the friendliest people I've met. The tour guide was great in sharing his personal experiences with apartheid, too. Overall A+ tour.

A little more depth could be added. ie local store, bar, and local home.

This trip gave such an informative and interesting insight into South African life and how it has changed. Informative guide, and the trip to the church was wonderful.

Must see tour! The first that should be taken upon arrival. It will leave a powerful impact to see poverty first hand while driving through the townships. Please dont just stay on main roads if it is possible to deviate, and use the opportunity to purchase hand made items at the skill centers, They're beautiful! Ask lots of questions, take lots of photos, and Dont be afraid, although you may be stared at like some rare specimen regardless of color - race. Again take advantage of buying some things there. They'll be less expensive than the formal markets, and sometimes even the vendors at the tourist sites.

Our guide was v nice. However, I expected the emphasis to be on the Bo Kaap area, as this is the emphasis in the description and on lonely planet, where I saw it. Our guide just dropped us off in the Bo kaap area for a five minute walk around.

Where was the advertisement picture taken? We saw nothing like this. Our tour guide was pleasant but VERY quiet. I had to ask him if he was feeling ok. We had to ask many questions to get answers about demographics, social issues, religion, education, etch, of Langa. We spent 55 minutes at a church service. We went into one hostel in Langa and just inside the front door of one of the houses. We followed our guide without comment through Langa to the "Beverly Hills section". We drove to a highway lookout to view Khayelitsa. Then the tour guide said "so that concludes my tour". We left our tour guide a good tip anyway. We would not recommend this tour.
