Why buy our tour?
- The goal of our tour is to give you a more authentic, personal and less commercial experience than you may get from a similar tour from a tourist company. We don't only want to show the area, but also let to meet and talk to the people behind it.
- You get the chance to see and learn about the other side of Cape Town. We think that it's important that people who visit Cape Town also see the informal settlements (townships) as it shows the reality of how many South Africans still live as a result of apartheid.
- The money you pay for the tour will go to the non profit organization of Where Rainbows Meet, which's main goal is to improve the same community you will be seeing. All stops on your tour will also be given a donation as a thank of supporting this project.
Even though we are not able to guaranty anything, we would never bring tourists or any other people in to an area if we weren't completely sure that they would be safe. We have involvement of community leaders in this project which have a huge influence on the safety of tourists.
