We had a full day tour with Gilda and it was spectacular. Gilda created a warm and personal experience at every single stop. We felt as though we really got to know the authentic community and it was so very much better than any general tour bus could have been. It was a beautiful way to really bear witness to a culture and a community which was both respectful of and engaging with that community. We are a family of 5 from the US traveling to South Africa for the first time. Our three adult children also found the experience educational and moving. We only had 4 days in the Johannesburg area and it was 100% worth spending a full day doing this. Gilda was also very conscientious about Covid protocols and we felt completely safe.

Gilda and Gabriel are amazing, friendly, and accommodating guides who worked together to provide a personalised online tour for me. Due to the pandemic, I am currently unable to travel to South Africa for a research project on entrepreneurship. I reached out to Gilda to see if it would be possible for her to show me what entrepreneurship looks like in Soweto. Not only did she show me this, she shared with me her own experiences of entrepreneurship, answered my many questions, and arranged for me to speak with entrepreneurs in many different lines of work, as well as stopping and facilitating conversations with local entrepreneurs she met along the way. This was a truly remarkable experience for me and my research, and goes to show how comfortable Gilda makes people feel, everybody was keen to talk to her! I would highly recommend a tour with Gilda and can't wait to take one in person when it's safe. Thank you both so much for the incredibly valuable experience.

The tour was an amazing experience. Gilda takes you deep into the culture of Soweto, providing direct connection to the amazing people and environment. On the tour, she arranges for native guides to narrate the local flair, from Kliptown to Orange West and everything in between. If you want to immerse yourself into the many colors of Soweto, this is tour to make it happen.

Thank you Gilda for sharing your special relationship with Soweto and its residents with me last week. It is evident that you have developed genuine friendships with a wide range of people, from the street performers to the artisans and the guides. Your warm relationships translated to shared insights and understanding of Soweto, its people and its history with me. I feel so fortunate to have connected with you and am excited for my next visit when I can spend a longer day with you. Much appreciation! Beth C from Maine, USA
