Overview

Vamos is deeply embedded in the Langa Township through its ownership (Siviwe), tour guides (Siviwe, Nathi, Gladstone, Abosh), and community involvement (Happy Feet Youth Project). Touring with Vamos is like being a guest in our neighbourhood! We live here, this is our home and you are our special guest.Our experiences too, are different. We take smaller groups on interactive walking or cycling tours around Langa. We visit friends in their homes and shacks, we hear their stories, we show you their businesses, we share traditional Xhosa beer, we smell sidewalk barbecues, (taste if you'd like), visit shebeens and spaza stores. We want to share with you, a slice of life in the townships.On weekday mornings, your tour will include a meal, usually a barbecue at the well-known Mzoli's in Guguletu. Our afternoon tours include a visit to the Happy Feet Youth Project. On Sundays, we include a visit to a Gospel Church. The unexpected thing about a tour with Vamos, is that most guests come away feeling positive and inspired. Our tours are not about poverty .... yes you will see signs of poverty, but rather our tours are about people and how they are lifting themselves out of their poverty. Positive, resilient, hopeful people who are friendly, welcoming and proud of their culture and history.

We were emotionally touched by this tour. Our guide was "Thando", with a great deal of emphaty and commitment, he gave us a short but deep insight into life in the township. Thando you was great! Thank you very much !

They took us on a great tour. Nice on time with a very sweet driver/tourguide. He lived in langa and showed us the community centre and some houses of his friends. Lunch was amazing, mzolis meat is the best.

The afternoon we spent on this tour was a great opportunity to learn about this fascinating community. We met so many friendly people and had a chance to learn about community programs and day-to-day life. Highly recommended.

This is a fabulous way to see the township. Our guide Thando was full of information and had an excellent sense of humour. The price is reasonable and the group small. We called to see if they could accommodate us with an hours notice and...More
