    Our guide on the 1/2 day Tour of Soweto, Prince, was an excellent guide! We had some safety concerns about the trip, based on people saying Soweto was dangerous. Prince was friendly, enthusiastic, funny, professional and put us at ease immediately!
    He is an intelligent young man, who has done his homework! He provided us with many interesting details about Johannesburg and Soweto. He handed us over to another guide, I think his name was Mark, who lead us into the community, also providing us with interesting information about the people who lived there. We had a lovely time meeting the preschoolers who had sang us a song. We took the tour the day we were leaving South Africa. We had a 9 hour wait for the plane. Prince was prompt in picking us up and returning us to the airport. We were all very happy we took the tour. It gave us a better understanding of the people of Soweto, and an insight in to South Africa. I have since done some of my own reading about the country, it's civil rights struggles, and culture. We all gave the tour 10 stars!!

    Whilst not as good as it's Cape Town cousin, only because the scenery is plainer and there seems less to see, it's interesting and good to get your geography and sights organised, hard to get to locations to get on it, we had to walk around 1km to get to the Hilton, and were not able to get back to Sandton until after 4pm as there is only 1 bus back there (we took Uber as it was around 1pm), still quite interesting

    Excellent guide. Very enjoyable view of the city. Enjoyed seeing the Fortreker Monument. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Small group experience well worth the money.

    Great tour. Highly recommended. The lunch was not good - make sure you tell your guide if you want more on the sandwich than a fried egg and french fries. There are add on options, including burgers, cheese, sausages, etc., but they cost extra. Our guy didn’t let us know that and the egg and fries did not do the trick. If we go back, we would skip the sandwich and opt for lunch T one of the many restaurants in the area.Otherwise this was a really wonderful experience, and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to get an idea of the history and significance of the Soweto Township.

    A really memorable day in Johannesburg with this local company.
    Our guide Tsholo arrived on time and greeted and introduced himself to our party of four. Straight away you could see he was a very friendly guy, neat and tidy and the vehicle was immaculate. We done the Joburg and Soweto tour which was an all day tour with quite a few stops and all the time Tsholo was very passinate with his work and his country. He is very informative, humerous and very knowledgeable about the history, both poitical and industrial in the area.
    The highlight for us was the opportunity to have a short guided tour of one of Soweto's large poor shanty towns. The guide here was a 20 year old young man who explained how they live in these places awaiting an opportunity to be rehoused in a proper dwelling. He also was very friendly and proud of his heritage. To be able to have this rare opportunity of the tour Stephensons company donates a percentage of the cost of our tour ticket to this community to aid in schooling for these children.
    Cold water provided all day as well. We were taken to a local restaurant for lunch, which also was very good.
    We would highly recommend this company for any tours or shuttle services they provide. It isn't a big company and if the rest of the staff are like Tsholo you can't possibly have a bad experience.

    Had a great walking tour with Welile. I did a morning tour and was the only person that booked so it became a private tour unintentionally. Welile was very informative and engaging while showing me all that Soweto has to offer. I walked away with more knowledge of the history of Soweto and also enjoyed the lunch provided. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the cultural side of Jo'burg.

    This was an amazing street art walking tour with our guide who was very knowledgable on the art around the area and the local artists. The area was buzzing with activity and we were also able to meet some of the local artists along the walk.

    Thabang was an excellent guide for the day in Johannesburg. He is very knowledgable about the area and the history of the city and surrounding areas. He took his time to tell us many stories about the area and is well-known by locals. I recommend his services if you are looking to learn about and see the area!

    We had an amazing day with Ali!
    Tons of information about the country, its culture and believes. Loved it!
    Too bad the day does not have 36 hours, because we would love to spend all of them at the tour.

    I booked a tour from Steve, the driver Mo picked up us on time, and full of patience, i had really good time during the safari ,we saw more 10 animals over there, and went toSun city. Sun city was nice and beautiful. This trip will spent around 12 hours,you have to have a good sleep the previous day. I definitely will choose them again.

    Our driver Nkululeko took us on the most memorable trip we have ever had. We were taken into the heart of the township where we met and spoke to some incredible people who are living in such terrible poverty. We were welcomed by everyone with smiles and the children were adorable and so happy. What an experience. Nkululeko is a credit to your company and have no hesitation in recommending him and your fantastic tour

    We had an late evening flight and decided to go on a half day tour in Johannesburg with Pastor. Absolutely the right decision!
    Everything was perfect, starting from the on time pickup to the tour itself. We learned way more than expected and seen so many different places of Johannesburg. Pastor obsolete knew how to show the differences of Johannesburg that you encounter within few hundred meters.
    100% recommended!

    Such a cool way to explore the city! The views were spectacular and our guide was very well informed. My favourite part was exploring the hidden gems of the city.
