Get immersed in this 3-part tour co-hosted by multiple local changemakers!

A Side by Side tour is an adventure comprising 2+ of our hands-on experiences. Escape the tourist trap, live like a local, and make an impact. A percentage of every booking goes directly back to the changemakers we've partnered with in the form of year-end gifts: equipment, bursaries, and cash grants.

To ensure all experiences run smoothly and guests' every last need is met, an SbS guide will be by your side throughout the entire tour from pick-up to drop-off (if you add the Hotel Pickup add-on). Your guide will provide you all the background info you need to know and settle the entrance fees on your behalf.

Optionally add the Photoshoot add-on for HD pics/vids of you in action sent by the Google Drive same day; and/or the Prepaid Meal add-on to get food pre-ordered for prompt delivery.

With flexible experience durations & sequence, choose from 6 different tour versions (more info in itinerary).

What To Expect

Cape Town
Tour Overview

The tour you'll be taking is called 'Blend the City.' By traveling, you meet and support entrepreneurs in Cape Town's very first township called Langa. The legacy of segregation during Apartheid has the left the city divided along racial lines to this day. By economically empowering townships and stepping into them, we integrate the city. And you also get a 'blend' of our favourite experiences.

If you only have the morning available and therefore need a half-day AM tour, please book a start time between 7-9am, and we will truncate the experiences to ensure you're dropped back off at your requested location within 4 hours after pick-up or meeting at Guga S'thebe centre in Langa.
— DISCLAIMER: Half-day AM tours exclude kids from the African Zumba experience, as they are busy schooling during the day.

• Admission Ticket Free


Your tour starts off in an unconventional way... You partake in a very interactive orientation led by your guide, instead of rushing off right away. This is done right at the Langa's famous arts & culture community centre, Guga S'thebe. Rest assured, we also put aside a little time to see the facilities and buy souvenirs from the centre's vendors.

The orientation sets expectations and the vibe for the day, covers safety & conduct, teaches handshakes and greetings, and does a check-in to sense where the guests' thinking and feeling is at.

If time is very limited, or you simply prefer, a good deal of the orientation can—albeit less comfortably—be done over the course of the drive into Langa, instead of before that drive. We do, however, recommend keeping the orientation in for the optimum tour.
