A fascinating tour. Packed more into a half day than we ever expected, though we never felt rushed. The tour was enhanced by our driver/guide who clearly cares passionately about his country, he was a mine of relevant and interesting information from beginning to end.

Our guide Norman was wonderful. The township tour exceeded our expectations, we had a chance to meet the residents and learn about their lives, hear the children's choir sing and visit one of the shanties, The resident's resilience and spirit was remarkable and awe inspiring considering the harsh conditions in which they live and the cruel treatment they suffered under apartheid. Everyone should know their stories and I know I am glad I did.
