I highly recommend Peter. We had a wonderful day in Soweto. Informative, flexible and relaxing. We had so much fun while learning so much. Great experience for our locals as well as our overseas visitors. Thank you Peter!

At very short notice (less than 3 hours) Peter was able to put together a wonderful tour of Soweto for me (a local) and my friend who was visiting from the USA.

Peter was a fantastic tour guide. Friendly, flexible and informative. We did a shortened Soweto tour which despite a number of attractions being closed was a very insightful and sometimes quite challenging trip. Highly recommend Peter and Mashaba Tours.

Peter collected us from OR Tambo and delivered us safely to our hotel then took us back 2 days later.
He was punctual and his vehicle was comfortable and clean.
We enjoyed our chats with Peter on both trips and it was a great opportunity to get to know more about Johannesburg.

I spent 3 days touring solo with Peter Mashaba and his colleague Louis. My experience was excellent! Both guides are knowledgeable, conversant and very safe. Over the three days I had a great range of conversation with each guide (Peter two days and Louis one day), and when possible offered to take them out to lunch for more in-depth conversation. I learned so much about the experiences of black Africans during and post Apartheid because they were sincerely open to engaging in conversation with me and to sharing their experiences. Peter and Louis were responsive to my interests and customized my tours accordingly. When the Sterkfontein caves were unexpectedly closed, Peter had a great alternative suggestion. Both are safe drivers and the vehicle is clean. I did a half day Soweto tour, full day Johannesburg tour including the Constitutional Court and Apartheid Museum, and went to the Cradle of Humankind. My time in Johannesburg was enhanced greatly because of taking tours with Mashaba Tours. They have my highest recommendation!

I arranged a last minute tour of Soweto and Peter was super accommodating. The trip included a walk with a really charming local guy around one of the poorest parts of the township, Hector Pieterson Museum, Mandela’s house and the Apartheid Museum. Along the way Peter was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of my questions about history, life and politics in Pretoria and South Africa. If you are looking for a friendly, relaxed tour then Peter is your man.

We did a full day tour - half a day of Johannesburg and half a day of Soweto. It was fantastic and so informative. Peter answered all our questions, drawing on both the historical record and his own experiences. We really felt we had seen everything in town at the end of the day - and Peter seems to know everyone in town, so you feel like a local as everyone greets you at each location!

Found Peter’s company from a Google search and very pleased I did. The half day tour of Soweto was exactly what my friend and I were looking for. We were only in Johannesburg briefly with work and wanted to see Soweto. Peter’s tour was better value for money than what other tour company’s were offering. His knowledge and friendliness didn’t go unnoticed. I booked last minute and he was accommodating. Highly recommend, Peter is all round a top bloke. Thanks again.
