I highly recommended the Soweto tour with Mandy to any traveller type. Her personal passion and dedication to her role is evident through her knowledge and desire to make every tour unique. I was travelling on my own and felt completely safe at all times whilst on tour. The driver is also very polite, safe and obeys road rules.

And she has an upbeat enthusiasm for her community that was a joy to experience. We saw the Mandela family home, Vilakazi Street, the Hector Peterson Memorial and... More

We booked a tour to Soweto, almost reluctant to being typical voyeurism tourists who come along to take photos. But Imbizo tours is different - Mandy takes you into the community to the markets, to interact with locals and into the townships to meet the residents. It is a real incite into life in Soweto - and shows the charm... More

We visited affluent and poor areas... More
