Had a nice half day tour to Soweto. Good guide, felt safe and got to learn a lof of new interesting things :-) I didn´t expect Soweto to be so big though, we could even have spent the whole day there. We went to the church Regina Mundi, Mandela´s house, Kliptown and a lot of other places as well. This... More

I was shown the ins and outs of Johannesburg by Mandy. We went to some touristy places, and some real down home places, where as long as I was with her, and the door locked, I felt quite safe. I wanted to see more, but we ran out of time.

Apart from the nice details like being picked up at the hostel and genuine african lunch out tour was simply great. The tour guide Mandy is a fascinating person. She could tell us much more than we could remember, we had interesting discussions and a lot of fun. Unfortunately it was only a half-day Soweto tour. Next time we should... More

Mandy picked us up at our hostel where we stayed at while in Johannesburg. We drove to a bar called The Shack in Soweto, drank our first beer of the night and had good and interesting conversations with her friends. Although we were total strangers everybody received us so nice, friendly and warm. Afterwards we went to a club called... More

We did a full day tour to Jo'burg downtown and Soweto with Mandy and Lucy. Both were wonderful and were eager to answer all our many questions. We felt very safe at all times, even when driving through poorer areas. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys a private tour with local guides rather than going on a... More

My husband and I had a half day tour of Soweto with Mandy in her car. I wasn't feeling well and wasn't sure I would go, but she was very kind so I felt comfortable and glad I didn't miss the outing. She is very interesting and informative and lovely to spend time with. It is a humbling and interesting... More

I have recently returned from a business trip to Johannesburg and I was fortunate enough to have some spare time. I went on a tour of Soweto with Mandy on the Saturday morning and I have to say it was a major highlight. Mandy was a joy to be with. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the Soweto (and JoBurg) area...

Went on a tour of Soweto and the Aparteid museum with Mandy and highly recommend it. Not only does Mandy have a great personality but she is from Soweto and knows the area well. Giving out fruit to the kids in the poorer part of Soweto was a highlight. We used Mandy again when we flew back into Joberg for... More

If you want a personal Soweto tour with someone who knows the township since childhood and was an eyewitness to and victim of the repression there under apartheid, Mandy is your best choice. My husband and I took her half-day tour, riding in her car, and were impressed by her ebullient personality and deep knowledge of the place. And the... More
