Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nela was our amazing tour guide!! I’ve travelled all over the world and had many tours and can say Nela is the best! Such passion. Such humor. Such amazing story telling. Such a way to meet so many members of the community. 2hours went too quickly. We didn’t want it to end! Nela - your are exceptional! Stay who you are and don’t change anything you do! Wonderful wonderful experience from all of us - including my 11 year old daughter! Thank you for making us feel part of the family. Until the next time!

This township tour was truly one of the most memorable experiences of my life. It took me on an emotional rollercoaster, where I laughed, cried, and felt deeply connected to everything around me. Our guide, Nela, was exceptional; his charisma and storytelling skills added immense value to the tour. He effortlessly conveyed the rich history of the township, making it incredibly engaging and enlightening. Visiting Langa provided a profound understanding of its culture and community. I believe every visitor to Cape Town should prioritize this tour—it's not just informative but also essential for appreciating the vibrant soul of Langa.

Must book Nelisa tour guide! Funny, warming, sensitive experience of Township living. You will get right amount of history that will help you better understand not only the townships but the city in general. Eye opening and warm experience. Totally safe! Grateful for this experience!

P.S. Best time to visit - mornings, as you will get a chance to listen to gospels.

Siviwe guided us on “Follow the Rainbow 🌈 Experience”. The morning opened our hearts today and for many to come.
Truth to Power was relayed to us and Desmond Tutu would be pleased with the lessons we all are taking home and that we’re planted in our hearts for good keeping.

We took a tour through Langa with Zuzi today who told us a lot about herself, her story and about the township she grew up in. We were welcomed very openly and warmly by the locals, talked to members of the community and learned a lot about the township. This tour is an absolute must do and we can recommend it a lot! We were picked up in the town Center and dropped off again after the tour. We felt very safe at all times and enjoyed our stay.

An excellent tour. Our guide, Zuzi, was very informative and answered all our questions honestly. The tour was thought-provoking and sobering. In my opinion all visitors to South Africa should have this experience.

Having visited Cape Town previously and seeing the townships before…we decided to see if it was possible to safely get a closer look to understand how in 2024 this level of poverty can still exist. We did our tour with Nela who was somehow informative…sensitive and funny. He comes from the township himself…even showing us his own home. He assured us these tours are only doing positive things for these communities so if your having doubts as we did I would highly recommend. The weather wasn’t great on the day we visited and our only comment would be if there had been a little coffee shop (in the centre we started and finished) I think it would do a good trade and raise money….also for those who do a tour on a hot day a glass of cold lemonade etc I’m sure people would gladly pay for. Definitely an experience to learn but also appreciate what we have. Thank you Nela

We had a really interesting trip with Nela. Equal parts informative and humorous, just the right balance. We had been a little nervous about the potential poverty tourism but felt helpful rather than exploitative. Recommend to get a better understanding of Langa and its residents
