I had an absolutely amazing time with Liziwe's tours- it left a lasting impression on me. I would say that the tour could honestly not have been any better. My tourguide, Andrew, is a passionate, kindhearted person and he made my experience really wonderful. He is very personable and will tailor the tour to your interests if possible- just contact him via email (the one on this website). I very much enjoyed walking around Guguletu with him, as he knows it like the back of his hand and you are made to feel completely welcome and safe the entire time. The people who live there are amazing... so kind, so friendly; you really will feel at home. I wish I could visit them again! You really have to go to Mzoli's if you want a relaxed/fun/very interactive experience, and you are guaranteed to spend time with locals there. The people are so sweet and you will have made so many friends by the time you leave. Also, the music is good and the meat is tasty :) I would recommend anyone to stay at the guesthouse too. It is beautiful, clean, in a good location, and will really give you a unique experience in South Africa. You might also have the chance to meet Donald, the builder of the guesthouse, and hear his amazing story. He is absolutely inspiring and very funny- he had me crying from laughing so hard! All in all, my tour was without a doubt the #1 most rewarding and intriguing experience I had in Cape Town (and that really is saying something, considering how amazing CT is)! I would say that the price you pay is nothing compared to the amazing experience you leave with. Don't have any reservations, just go right for it! You will have the experience of a lifetime, guaranteed.

My Mother and Father are visiting me for holiday from the U.S and bringing them to the Guguletu township to have Andrew and Donald guide us around was a wonderful experience. We saw how flexible they can be given any circumstance and my family and I felt quite moved after the tour today and experience at Mzoli's Place. Never did we feel unsafe because of the hospitality and warmness of the Liziwe's family and business. All the best to the Andrew and the LIziwe family! Nicholas, Mark and Ann
