Zuzeka was an amazing tour guide. Would highly recommend this tour! She was engaging and insightful, very open to answering our questions, and welcoming as well. We were worried we may feel awkward but never did. Perfect amount of time (~2 hours) to tour a township.

We thus joined the tour guided by Zuzeka who is a very competend and open minded guide and was able to answer all of our many questions. The tour really completed our journey although... More

We had been told that a township tour is a must while in Cape Town, but were not really comfortable with the idea of “let’s go gawk at the people who are less fortunate than we are.” After searching for just the right tour, we were happy to have found Siviwe Township Tours, which is owned by, and hires, township...

We had a tour last week with Nathi in Langa. Thanks to him we understood the way of life in the township and how people try to improve their conditions. If you go to Capetown, you mustn't miss that experience !

This tour was amazing. Nathi was our tour guide and was very educated, we'll spoken and provided great insight into the Township history and lifestyle. He was open and provided honest and positive answers to all of our questions. It's important to get a tour guide who grew up there. Nathi knew everyone and the people were extremely friendly. Highly... More

For my person an absolutely must see on your southafrica trip. Our guide Zuzeka grew up in Langa, what was the best basic for our walking tour through Langa. We´ve got general information to the township, the organisation of it and how it works to live there. The visit at Cedrics House and the talk with Cedric have been my... More

An excellent insight into township life. Now, before you ask, isn't this misery tourism, I'll state that it's not. The people of the township of Langa range from poor to wealthy and you will see both sides of the coin. I think that was the most important thing for me as I wasn't expecting to see houses to the extent... More
