There are a few townships around the Cape Town area which you will be able to explore with a local guide who will tell you amazing stories and interesting information about the daily lives of the South Africans living in these informal settlements. 

    You will get the opportunity to take part in a drumming session and interact with the vibrant locals of the township. Enjoy a delicious lunch at a careful selected township restaurant before being taken back to your accommodation.

    This is not a private tour - just a driver taking you to the places - book independently
    We paid £350 for two of us for what we thought was a private tour with a tour guide . Do not be fooled. Driver arrived 20 minutes late , didn't know our name and then took us first to table mountain and just dropped us off with no tickets. We then purchased tickets feeling it was weird as we had already paid £350 so rang the operator. told to hurry back down as we should have been taken to robbens island boat first , had to wait a further hour for driver to return and collect us. Just dropped us off at the harbour and pointed to where we had to run and get the boat. Your tickets for this are the same as booking independently and get no different experience. Driver was again 30 minutes late picking us up. Took us to table mountain even though there was a huge fire burning and we were turned away. Would have thought a private driver would have checked the web and made a phone call to check. We always try to book tours so we get the full experience but seriously there is no need to with this one. Uber taxis are cheap and really reliable. you can book an uber to the harbour , book your boat tickets in advance. Get an uber from the harbour to table mountain - can buy tickets there. If you want to go to bo kapp uber would drive you that way , we were told afterwards by hotellier its a bit dangerous to wander around bo kapp but the private driver just dropped us off and didn't mention this. In all you can do the same tour for 2 people for well under £100 .

    Unparalleled views, company and dedication
    Charmaine arrived early to pick us up at our hotel and she was always on time for meet-ups during the tour. Transportation was alwaysvery comfortable and she had beverages and snacks available. She's very knowledgeable and fsvilitated great conversation during the whole tour. When we wanted to spend more timein an attraction, like Boulder's Beach, she didn't hesitate and she even took great photos of us in all of our stops. Lunch with her was also a delight. At the end of the day she dropped us off where we wanted even if it meant taking a detour and she even got us a great guide for our next stop in Joburg. We highly recommend her.

    A full day of beauty in Cape town.
    Charmaine was a delight. We had a very powerful trip to Robben Island followed by a brush with Desmond Tutu (that is a whole other story). The visit to the Diamond Museum was a let down but I understand that this will not be on the tour anymore anyway. Who wants to oogle diamonds after coming to grips with the cost of apartheid? Finally we ended the day at the top of Table Mountain as the sun set and the moon rose. Just magical. By the end of the day, Charmaine was "one of the girls" in our travel group. We just lingered and enjoyed the mountain together. Thank you Charmaine.

    Best Time Ever - Charmaine is Awesome
    I cannot recommend Charmaine Hand and Touring South Africa highly enough. My partner and I recently vacationed in South Africa and booked Touring South Africa for two full-day, private tours. Charmaine is the consummate professional. She is timely, organized and efficient. Everything went very smoothly. She took us around the city, displaying very good knowledge of the area and relevant tourist attractions. More importantly, Charmaine was incredibly friendly and engaging. We really enjoyed her company. By the end of the trip, it felt like we were spending time in the country with a good friend. Kudos to Charmaine for being a big part of our very special vacation. We are forever grateful.
