Both the township tour and Robbens island were incredible.

What wasn't great was that there was an issue with our tickets the night before. Our driver, Sam, didn't make us aware of the issue until after the township tour and resigned to the fact that we just weren't going to be able to go to Robbens. We were told none of our geoup of 12s tickets were paid for and we would be dropped off at our hotels. That was completely unacceptable to my group of 4. We told Sam we wanted to go to the ticketing office at V&A and discuss our tickets with someone else. After much back and forth, the tickets "magically appeared." We went to the ticketing office. They were unable to accommodate us on our original 1pm ferry and were moved to 3pm. The change in time did effect other plans that we had, which we were not happy about.

Great township-tour, high recomendation!

Great tour with very interesting insight into history and live nowdays. Great guides, well organized and perfectly on time. We were concerned at first if it is ok to visit townships as a tourist, in order not to be a kin d of poverty-sightseer, but this concernes were all quicly dispelled, we hat the impression that people in townships aprechiate the interest and attention (and of course money) these tours bring and we had a very impressive tour and only plesant encounters in this area. the robben island tour was unfortunately cancelled due to heavy winds, but it was no problem to rescedule or to get a refund.

Siya was a nice and talkative tour guide.

Enjoyed the tour with Siya. He was nice and talkative and also the person he organised to guide us through Langa answered the questions we had and was helpful. However, the mere fact of going on a Township tour was something quite new and I still don't know how I feel about it. I felt like an intruder in someone's home. Like a voyeur. So, in many ways the tour was eye opening, informative, and for me just a little disturbing.

Well organized and genuine township tour

Well organised and composed tour with great guides that gave a good view of life in a township. We were given a historical baclground of how the townships were formed as a result of the apartheid politics, and we git to visit a township home and see the daily lives in the township. We were lucky to go on a sunday when the tour includes a 30 minutes visit at local baptiskt church meeting which was a fantastic experience.

Highly recommend this tour - one of the best things we have done here!

The “gospel” part of the tour was worthwhile, fun, and respectful. But the real highlight followed: an extended walking tour of the township led by a resident who facilitated access to residents and their homes to experience and better understand their lives, struggles, and hopes. We even got to sample some home-brew beer being made for a celebration. Do this tour, you will love it and learn from it!
