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.

Going on tour with Mandy is not your average experience. I imagine if you're not talkative this is not going to be your thing, you better get into a larger tourist bus. However, if you like to interact, discuss, change locations spontaneously then you're in...More

We have recently returned from 25 days in South Africa and our half day Soweto tour with Mandy Mantazana was a highlight (very different but on a par with the Hluhluwe Wildlife Park), so much so that we arranged a second tour - of "beer...More
