Overview

When we started the Business six years ago our focus and specialist expertise was in the townships where two of Camissa owners once resided. Having gained extensive freelance guiding experience for various tour operator service providers in Cape town we so a gap in the market for a tour operator that will offer a service that is different and unique putting more emphasis on traditions customs values and impact of urbanization on all the above rather than focusing on the political history which lead to the development of township communities our business is simple and focused. We conduct Day Tours in Cape Town and its surroundings and facilitate township marketing experiences.The Camissa Team looks forward to hosting you on one of our tours we invite you to do the right thing and get the full picture.

I recently went on a township tour with Carissa. It. Lasted a half-day and was excellent. The guides were knowledgeable and very friendly. Walked around Lange and drove by other townships. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting to see beyond the waterfront glitz

The tours we took with Camissa were some of the highlights of our trip. Godfrey was our tour guide for the Sunday Gospel Tour and Wine Tasting. We had a great time and he was extremely knowledgeable.
