A FIRST HAND TOWNSHIP TOUR
Experience an authentic, in-depth and unforgettable 3-hour, live guided visit of the Cape Town’s oldest townships. Absorb life in Gugulethu and Langa with the LaGuGu Township Tour.
Come see, smell, feel, hear, taste and walk the township complimented by free walking and bicycle tours.
Whilst hopping on and hopping off our lovely township taxi interact, engage and learn about the oldest township in South Africa. Pass the beer hall, Dom pass museum, Sobukwe square and sing a Brenda Fassie song or two.
