It was a great tour. The guide was engaging and knowledgeable. GetYourGuide should give guidelines to participants about tipping. No one on our tour (except me) tipped the tour leader, driver or even the volunteer who gave us a thorough presentation in Hector Pieterson Memorial Park. Please understand the tipping culture in an economy with over 25% unemployment and where everyone needs a gig to survive. 10 - 20 Rand per person goes a long way- that’s 70 - 1.40 $US.

It took a visit from our grandson who lives overseas to ignite our interest in taking this half day tour of Soweto, and we were most impressed by it. A huge advantage was that we were fetched from our residence and taken back home. I was impressed at the level of communication from the organisers. our guide, Michael, was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. We felt that we had an authentic experience, and in all, thoroughly enjoyed the morning.

Johannesburg: Soweto Half-Day Tour Reviewed by

Our full day tour with James was fantastic! He did such a great job at explaining the history and facts about all of our stops and was entertaining as well. It didn’t feel like an all day event since he made everything enjoyable. All of the places we visited were great with a good amount of time at each stop. We definitely learned a lot and tried to soak it all in. I would highly recommend this tour, especially with James!

Johannesburg and Soweto Apartheid Full Day Tour Reviewed by

Great, knowledgeable and nice guide Nick . The only downside is that we spent a lot of time driving around to pick up others on the trip. May be an earlier time would work better to avoid the peak hour. But overall very satisfied. We didn’t have much to donate in Soweto, bear in mind when you go there !!!

Jo'berg in 1 Day: Soweto, Apartheid Museum & City Tour Reviewed by

Got a great grasp of the city history and culture in a jam-packed day across Jo'burg and Soweto. The very knowledgeable guide not only provided information but answered questions, as we saw old gaols, 50 story view of Jo'burg, Apartheid museum, and parts of Soweto itself. Very good.
