Learn about the rich cultural history of Cape Town, while visiting Langa and going on a drive through sightseeing of Gugulethu townships in the Cape Flats, an area which from the 1950's became home to people that the then apartheid government deemed as non-white. Visit the District Six Museum and experience a walking tour in Langa before visiting an arts and crafts centre, a sangoma (traditional doctor), a local market and a shebeen (tavern).

If you prefer to follow your own time and schedule, let us provide you with a vehicle and a guide to explore the Cape’s unspoiled beauty. Plan your own tour and experience the Cape in your own style! We offer Individual or group private tours of Cape Town.

If you or a group of people would like to go on tours without any other strangers, you can take advantage of our private group tours where it will be only you and your friends / family / group on the tour, no outsiders.

We did the LaGuGu cultural township tour. It is a must do tour for Cape Town to understand Apartheid and how its consequences reverberate until today . The struggle for equality continues socioeconomically. Tourism helps the shanty towns.

Our guide James was excellent and gave us a great insight into both the history and reality of the Townships. We visited Langa and James made sure we were safe at all times. It is a unique trip and one we woukd throughly recommend.

Didn’t know what to expect but felt we couldn’t leave Cape Town without learning something of the Townships of which we’d seen many on our Garden Route Drive. Our guide was born in a Langa so was able to provide a really knowledgeable experience for us. It was a very positive uplifting experience seeing the residents going about their daily life. We were made feel very welcome and especially enjoyed the Gospel Church Experience. A big thank you to our excellent guide. Very worth while experience.

Excellent tour, it was just us and our guide James who was very knowledgeable and was able to explain everything and brought the tour to life for us. Initially had some reservations about visiting the township but felt very safe at all times.
