My partner and I did the full day Soweto tour and thoroughly enjoyed it! The guides were very pleasant and spoke good clear English. Our guide Bobo was funny, polite, helpful and took great pleasure in answering everyone's questions. Our pick up and drop off driver was also extremely polite and great to chat with both before and after the tour, cheers Mbali! Both also made us feel very safe in the vehicle on the somewhat chaotic roads. The tour itself was eye opening to say the least. We got a very first hand experience in the environment and it was quite a sobering experience. One that wont be forgotten. Both museum visits were also an added bonus as we wanted to see them. We would highly reccomend this tour to anyone wanting to truly experience all soweto life has to offer.

The tour to the Soweto township-especially the informal township was informative and essential to understanding the whole of South Africa. The organization of the day with so many pick ups and not knowing when the day would conclude made it difficult. We were forced to pay for an Uber ride instead of having transport like the other people in our group had. The young man who led our informal tour in Soweto did a fantastic job, and the kids of the township brought smiles and tears to each of us. In spite of having little in monetary ways, they were rich in joy!

Driver turned up 20 minutes late with 11 people to pick up and I was first was told it would be added on at the end but it wasn’t Promised 2 hours in apartheid museum this was mentioned several time we ended up with 90 minutes so was rushed couldn’t see all of it properly very disappointed Guide demonstrated his disappointment that people including me wanted to go into Nelson Mandela’s home which is an option you offer in your literature so he should have allowed time for it if it’s an option. Lunch was excellent
