Each community within Cape Town is unique in its customs and flavors, and this tour of Cape Town offers you the opportunity to experience each neighborhood's highlights. Begin in the City Center, where you'll encounter the section known as the Bo Kaap. This Malay area is now home to many Muslims and the descendants of freed slaves who settled here following the abolition of slavery. The neighborhood is known for its steep streets paved with cobblestones and brightly painted homes. The next stop on your Cape Town tour is Langa. This is Cape Town's oldest township and was originally formed as one of the suburban areas for the Black Africans during apartheid. There you will learn about the struggles of protestors during the push to end apartheid and restore equality and democracy to South Africa. If you are on the tour on a Sunday morning, your guide will bring you to a traditional church service in this historic neighborhood.

After Langa, tour Gugulethu township, where you can observe local craftsmen create their unique products. In Khayelitsha, another interesting settlement area, stop at a local shebeen (tavern) to meet and greet some of the community's residents. In just half a day, you'll enjoy the wonders of this cultural tour of Cape Town with your knowledgeable and friendly guide. See the diversity of people that make up this remarkable city on your guided Cape Town tour.
