Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An absolute must for anyone going to Cape Town. You can’t go to CT without going to a township and understanding the real history of SA. Our guide MT was excellent. Really knowledgeable and engaging. I can’t recommend this tour enough.

Me and my 14 Year old son took this township tour and we were very lucky to be just two of us in the group which gave a very personal feel to the tour. We walked around in the area and got a deeper understanding of the consequences of apartheid up until today and saw the daily life and the amount of creativity that is there within arts, music and sports. Thanks to our great guide Theo we got a broader and more true picture of life in Cape Town for the majority of the people. We are very grateful for this experience and it Will stay with us for a long time.

We got a clue from a friend of mine about this tour. We have been short on time, but Peter found a way to make this happend. It was definitly worth it. People always say things they are not true. I felt save and love the people in africa. I can compared it to asia. The Townsips are really similiar to every other city in the world. They are creative and they work like every other people in the world. The difference is that they aren´t heard or count and people just don´t now what this is really about.

So take you Phone and call Peter, he well show you how it really is and not what the politicans are trying to tell the western world.

My family had a fantastic time with the AAE guys, MT and Cameron, on our private experience to Langa and Khayelitsha. Initially we were a little worried about whether this experience would be a benefit to the communities we visited or if we would feel like white voyeurs. However, MT and Cameron and the many other community members made us feel very comfortable from the moment we met them while still showing us an honest look at the historic trials and triumphs of the neighborhoods. On top of that, the guys just took great care of us and answered our thousands of questions. This experience is not to be missed!

This was a great tour. Our guides, Wanda and Simphiwe, collected us on time and took excellent care of us. They shared their knowledge of township history and culture and answered any questions we had. They were very open and honest about the challenges their people face. We visited the smaller Langa township and also the enormous Khayelitsha. It was very humbling to see poverty on such a massive scale. Wanda was very experienced and knew exactly what we needed. If you have never been to a township I would urge you to go on an organised tour. You haven’t experienced South Africa if you don’t.

What an experience. These guys know the city, the culture, it's people! Definitely the ones you should hire for their services as they show you the real Cape Town. Or let them drive you through the area. Cape of Good Hope, worth a visit. With their knowledge of the city and surroundings, you gain a lot of information about the city. Connect to the people as they take you to the suburbs of Langa and the history of 'Apartheid'. Visiting the Dom Pas museum gives you insights how South Africa was during the 1900's. Almost a century of depression. Listen to their stories then, listen to their stories now as the locals love to tell you the story of their life. A story only they can tell you.

The poor review isn't due to the tour itself, which I imagine would have been wonderful. But after booking about a month in advance and providing our pickup location, no one ever showed up to get us the day of the our, and there was no communication whatsoever from the company. We sent a message that morning confirming our pickup time, which went unanswered. We sent another message after our booked time had elapsed. We waited 20 minutes after the tour time and finally gave up.

We did submit a refund request through Tripadvisor/Viator and hopefully we get our money back, but we cannot recommend booking through this company due to the lack of communication and leaving us stranded with nothing to do our one of our days in Cape Town. If they would have canceled or let us know in advance, we could have done another activity, instead of waiting around for them. If you book this tour, prepared to be left stranded.
