Cape Town township tours booming
More overseas tourists are visiting Cape Town and Southern Cape townships.
CAPE TOWN - Tourism authorities say township tours are becoming more popular every year.
Community tours are ranked in the top six things overseas visitors do when they visit Cape Town or parts of the Southern Cape.
Cape Town Tourism CEO Mariette du Toit-Helmbold says township tours started in the Mother City.
"There's a huge variety of community tours that you can choose from. The tourists have become a lot more experimental. People want to get off the bus and interact with the locals."
