Enjoyed the ride thanks to Captain Nicholas and the enthusiastic Mbali. Took us through joburg to Soweto and explained the various points to note. Mbali kept us in high spirits and made us feel welcomed and happy 😊😊 Good job

Simón did a splendid job describing his hometown Soweto with great enthusiasm. Truly enjoyed our in-depth experience especially the walking tour through the shantytown. Private tour with hotel pick up and return without being lost in a crowd was valuable perk.

We had a half day tour of the most metropolitan township. We drove on the welldesigned highways to get a glimpse of the fashionable and the rising middle class neighborhoods, vast diamond mine sand hills and the big stadium where Nelson Mandela spoke.

Our tour guide was somebody who had grown up in Soweto and was able to add her personal experience to the information on the tour as we drove around the neighborhood. Very informative
