We also were very well explained how apartheid worked and what it ment for this population. Our guide took time to drive us to... More

We had the most amazing time in Cape Town thanks to Eddy and Owen from Roots Africa. I can't begin to explain how fantastic they were. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable. I was travelling with my daughter and felt completely at ease. They suggested the most outstanding places for us to visit.

We would highly recommend our tour guide Owen J. He was top-notch. My wife and I booked the Cape Peninsula tour via Viator. When Owen J arrived we let him know that this was the last day of our stay in Capetown. We let him know that we had seen that there were township tours and that we were wondering... More

Our group traveled to Cape Town for the first time in December 2016, and had the most marvelous trip! This was due in large part because of Reza Toyer of Roots Africa Tours. He picked us up on time every day with a huge smile, was extremely friendly, professional, reliable and added a personal touch to everything. It was wonderful... More

Tour guide Owen was a first class guide, he explained very everything well from when the apartheid law was first brought in to how it was enforced and how it affected people's lives. We visited district six then Langa where we visited a small museum (with toilets) and a hand made souvenir stall, we then went on to Khayelitsha shantytown... More

Impressive experience; history of CapeTown from perspective of original inhabitants; focusing on the role of Nelson Mandela; how only forgiveness could overcome apartheid and form basis for a healthy future for black, colored and whites together... seeing Capetown and SA through fresh pair of eyes... value far outweighed the price!

I was with an amazing tour company (smartours) and they set up a cultural tour through Cape Town with Roots Africa. Our driver was so knowledgeable and let us know about everything in the area. We drove thru the city and stopped at many places. My highlight was visiting the school and hearing the young kids sing. Even in the... More

An informative all day tour that shows you the results of the past decades of struggles in South Africa. You visit a few townships and get a through history of the struggle of the three "classes"...black, colored and white. You are presented this history by a black man who was brought up in one of the "shacks". You will see... More

The Bureau of Tourism should make this a mandatory tour for everyone who enters the country. We can read books, watch movies and attend seminars to learn about the culture, but nothing can make us understand the people and the current state of affairs until the Roots Africa Tour puts you right in the middle of it all. They are... More
