interesting and informative tour
Oct 2020 • Couples
Andile is a very friendly, engaging and knowledgeable tour guide.

Unfortunately for us, we were in Johannesburg at a time when many attractions were still closed due to COVID-19. This meant we could not go to the Apartheid museum. Andile did his best to compensate for this. He took us to Soweto Towers instead and gave us a lot of history and background on the Apartheid era, as well as great insight into life in Soweto today.

Despite us not being able to do the full tour, I would still recommend this package. Thank you Andile.

promptly picked up from hotel, great and knowledgeable driver; Norman. A tour for everyone who wants a great experience. Highlights are the museum in which Norman knew lots about , very informative, Soweto shanty town where we met the local community. Friendly and social environment.

Also went to the mandela house stopped off for lunch with the best recommendation from Norman. Food and Soweto beer was great. Followed up by the stunning Soweto towers which had a great atmosphere.

This tour was nice relaxing l never felt pressured to rush anything.
