This tour was great for many reasons. First of all it really taught me how much i have versus others less fortunate. The tour guide was also a resident of the township and by taking a tour with them you are providing income for the residents.

Chose this trip due to good reviews on TA and that the company was a local, Langa, company. We opted to be picked up at the hotel which worked spotlessly. Our guide was Mbuyiseli "Chippa" Mngangwa which was very good. He showed us both the "upside" and "downside" with Langa and told a lot of history about living there, how... More

Per Siviwe Tour's website the meeting point is "Corner of Bhunga Avenue and N’Dabeni Street, GPS coordinates: -33.94652,18.52163". However the Uber app can not find this address. Nor can it find "Bhunga Avenue and N’Dabeni Street". So we paid our Uber driver in cash when he delivered us using other direction means than the app. Also there is no sign... More

We were a group of four and we booked a private tour. The first thing which we noticed that made a good impression was that they were extremely prompt in replying to emails (usually within ten minutes of me sending them). We received gps coordinates, at which we could meet our guide, and he was there waiting for us even... More

Great experience! The go-see was informative, authentic, felt save, and was a great way to get to know the township. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the township and about culture and politics in South Africa in general. We were two couples on the tour. We strongly recommend going.

Today we spent a couple of hours in the company of Nathi on an extremely interesting visit to Kanga just outside Cape Town. Nathi was really friendly and informative and answered questions on all sorts of things without sanitising or exaggerating anything. Before I went I was a bit concerned about us exploiting the people living in Langa but there... More

Yesterday we booked the tour on the homepage of Siviwe Township Tours. Today we drove to the meeting point and together with our tour guide Nathi we parked our car in front of the Info Center.
