Overview

We drive past the Slave Lodge and City Hall to view Mandela's Statue, site of the first ever public speech Nelson Mandela delivered after his release from prison. Then visit the riveting District Six Museum and travel through the District Six Site (Museum closed Sundays & Public Holidays) for a sharp reminder of the past. We proceed to tour Langa Township, the oldest apartheid housing scheme in the Cape, visiting the local market - Gugu Sthebe, where the community showcase their skills and various projects including arts & craft. Thereafter continue to see the informal housing as well as new housing developments under way. For those who have the time, do extend to a full day tour - a visit to Robben Island in the afternoon. Cruel home of our Nelson Mandela for so many years, it's a highly charged and emotional moment when you visit the site of this suffering, and realize how far South Africa has come from those days.

The tour guide was such a good sport- so friendly and jovial. This tour actually made me so emotional as I learned about the history and the pain of the people. I would definitely recommend.

The township Part of it was amazing and our guide was very informative and took us to a very nice artist co-op and into our room and one of the township hostels. The only reason I’m not rating It higher It is because of the Robbin Island portion. This is not a problem with La Vacanza Travel or even the tour guide because when you go to the island they have their own guides and ours could not be understood. He technically spoke English but we could not understand his accent so we left knowing nothing about what we had just seen. I don’t know how this could be avoided even if you did it on your own but just something to take into consideration.
