United States

I benefited from my experience extensively, enjoyed free excursions and met some incredible people, local and international! Cape Town is a truly remarkable city and The Backpack is extremely well-revered in the local community, founded upon the practices of fair trade tourism and social responsibility. My only concern is the poor management and lack of communication which has led to a toxic work environment and frustration among staff. I often felt extremely devalued, disrespected, and treated as less than staff. Because of this, I began lowering my expectations and, in turn, my output.
