I had a half day open before I had to leave for the airport and wanted to visit Soweto. Stephenson was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and background of Soweto, I learned so much! I also appreciated that he was willing to be flexible and customize parts of the tour to my interests. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We had Stephenson as our tour guide for this trip. It was a great culture experience that included lunch that went into the background of the main tribes of South Africa. We shopped at the small village for a few minutes and walked around the various areas. The lunch included different options for meat and vegetables.

The lion park was right down the street and was a for sure highlight! We were able to see the lions while they were awake and giraffes. Along the ride to and from the hotel, he went into detail about the sights in the city and history. He truly loves South Africa and knows much about it!
