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.

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.
