The biggest surprise when doing the "usual" wildlife and Victoria Falls southern Africa trip was spending time on 3 afternoon/evening tours with Mandy. I was interested in seeing some of the historic sites and culture of Johannesburg on the 3 "layover" days we would have, but I never expected that to turn out to be THE highlight of our nearly...

Zongy picked us up at our hotel. He was extremely knowledgeable of the anti-apartheid struggle and political aftermath. This is why we wanted to visit Soweto. We had a great tour and discussion. We learned so much! Everyone we met was wonderful.

My husband and I had a day in Jo'burg and decided to do a tour of Soweto. We read the great reviews about Mandy and booked with her for an afternoon private tour. Mandy showed us all the.major sites and we also were able to walk through Kliptown with a young guy who lives there. Mandy was great to talk... More

Mandy's tour of Soweto, her home town, was excellent. I especially liked that she took us to Kliptown and had arranged for locals there to walk the streets with us to answer our questions and to introduce us to other residents. The personal connections were memorable.

We had a great experience with Imbizo tours which booked Sibati (a freelancer whose day job is teaching in high school at Soweto) as our guide. We did it super last minute - morning of and were happy they were able to accommodate us. Sibati was super fun and interesting - we talked about everything from higher education to the... More

After some online research we booked a private half-day tour with Mandy. Even though it was the most expensive tourist attraction we had done during our intense weeklong visit to the country it was by far the most enriching one. In the morning, Mandy patiently waited for us (we reached the Gautrain station almost one hour late) and took us... More

Mandy provides a great tour of her home town and takes you beyond the well known sights of Soweto. There were 2 doctors and a nurse in our group so she took us into the emergency waiting room of the huge hospital so they could compare it to their hospital in France. None of us knew there were upper and... More

We had a great trip with Mandy around Soweto - she is a knowledgeable, entertaining and informed tour guide. Very professionally run and well organised. She made the two children travelling with us feel very special.

Mandy is a very special and lovely person. Her knowledge and experiences gave us a deeper view into the history and present of Soweto. After that we had a great evening with new friends, some beers, African dance lessons and a lot of fun.

A friend of ours booked us for a half-day tour with Imbizo Tours, and we didn't really know what to expect. In the end we were very pleasantly surprised with Mandy doing an excellent job as a guide through Soweto. During the three hours we had available she took us to very different neighborhoods, Mandela's house and other locations where... More
