    Thank you to Ncumisa, at Siviwe Tours, and to Don, our guide, for orchestrating and leading our 2-hour tour walking tour of Langa Township. During the walk, Don described the history of townships and what life was like in them during and immediately after the apartheid era. He also described and showed us examples in Langa of locally engineered innovation and micro investing bringing economic improvements and hope to a zone that previously had neither. This is an important aspect of Cape Town and South African contemporary history that should not be missed.

    We had a fantastic tour through the Langa township with John. He was so welcoming and kind. His love for his community and passion for the ethical tourism project is infectious. He showed us the real life in the township; the history and present, the good and the bad. It was personal and moving. Tours like these are so important and it was one of the most interesting and rewarding tours I’ve ever been on.

    It was an absolutely fantastic tour that makes you understand the township life away from the stereotypes of crime, illiteracy and poverty. You can sense the power community and resilience as you move around. A huge thanks to Nela who made me feel safe and welcomed. His passion towards his township was felt throughout the way and through the stories he spoke. Amazing experience

    My friends and I had a great experience during our tour. Nela was a great guide. We learned quite a bit about the history of South Africa in general and Langa Township and got to talk with many other community members - all of them were so welcoming! Would highly recommend this tour to others.

    My family and I, we had a very interesting 2h tour in the Langa township with Siviwe Township Tours. We got there by our own rented car and parked it right outside the cultural center, which was the meeting point. For those of you who might have doubts whether they should go there by their own means or take the option of the pick-up from their hotel, I can tell you that the former is absolutely safe and you also save a considerable amount of money. Our guide, Nela, was there waiting for us. Nela is a habitant of the township. The tour he gave us was brilliant. He is a kind, knowledgeable and passionate person that made us feel very welcome, answering all our questions. During the whole tour, not only did we feel completely safe but also welcomed by all the people we met during our walk in the streets. The only thing we missed a little was some more interaction with the locals. For instance, visiting some people in their houses, especially the poorest ones, who could be benefited by such visits, or visiting a school. That was the only recommendation we had and passed on to our lovely guide Nela. All in all, this tour and the agency are highly recommended.
