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.
The tour was well organised. Worth a half day trip. You get a local tour guide to walk a bit inside Soweto which is a great expensive and gives you a chance to interact with the locals. There was no WiFi on the minivan as indicated but that gave us a chance to concentrate on the guide and appreciate the stops uninterrupted. We covered all the historic stops and took time to take them in.
Our trip was fantastic. Picked up from our address. Day was really interesting and we learnt a lot about the history of SA, and how things are today. Recommend leaving loads of time for Apartheid museum. It has a lot of information and although is hard at times, is really good and important to see so we don’t forget.
Our guide Sam was prompt and very knowledgable. He was a wealth of knowledge for the entire trip. We enjoyed Constitution Hall and Mandela’s House. The Soweto was very intriguing. This tour gets REAL and in your face as soon as you enter Soweto.
