Definitely worth doing. Informative and varied between the different locations. Our guide, remaining in character, was fun and educational. The tour was a real eye-opener on Mandela's life and times. Just do it!

We received excellent personalised service from Henni who was personable, friendly and likeable.
We received a pleasant surprise when we met him at Hilton Sandton at exactly the specified time. He advised that he was our personal guide for the day, just the 2 of us.
The trip was excellent in terms of timings and coverage. We enjoyed the Soweto visit after Liliesleaf. Yes, we had read the history but until you visit you have no real understanding. Henni added to our trip and perspective with insightful direct commentary. We found the tour of Constitution Hill personally challenging and it is hard to understand these atrocities only 40 plus years ago. We then also enjoyed the visit to the Church and its symbolism. The drive through Johannesburg and the gold Museum and then the visit to the high rise building was worthwhile.
The tour and guide were both excellent and good value. We were staying / visiting with good friends in Sandton but this tour added great detail and exposure to our visit. Can only highly recommend our guide Henni. He was first class as a guide and also in explaining and presenting a balanced view.
A very good decision even for very experienced travellers to use this guide and the tours were first class.

Lunch in Soweto and visit to city observation tower excellent.

Me and my family really enjoyed this full day tour. Lots of information from a very knowledgable guide and not too rushed despite the many sights visited. Excellent way to see Johannesburg.

This tour was so much more than expected. The guide and driver were extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and the present day Jo'burg and Soweto, We saw many, many things that we would never have seen unguided, and we felt in very safe hands at all times.

Truly excellent. The guide was superb. Liliesleaf was truly moving and educational - glad this was substituted for the Apartheid museum. A stop at Mandela's house and at the Hector Peterson memorial would have been nice.

A must do for the history, for the myth of Soweto and for South Africa! A very well laid out museum which canot be bypassed if visiting South Africa.

Phineas was our tour guide and was incredibly generous in sharing his personal and professional perspective on the history of the township and its people. He also made a few side stops for us. Your perspective on life will be changed by a visit to the Apartheid Museum; I had a wonderful and unique appreciation for the meal my husband and I, black Americans, enjoyed at an upscale restaurant in Sandton that evening.

A really excellent trip and well worth the money. The guide was very good. The apartheid museum was very moving. Highlight of the tour however was the lunch in Soweto. Excellent food at very affordable prices.

o tour é um pouco caro, mas valeu a pena, ficamos com uma ideia muito precisa sobre a história recente do país. O nosso guia era símpático e prestável.Gostámos especialmente do Sowei e Lillies leaf.Almoçámos num restaurante comum no soweto, buffet com comida tipica sul-africana, não incluido no tour e um pouco caro.

I was a perfect one day trip to get an idea of Joburg. Guide was very knowledgeable. The only caveat was
If lunch was not included, do not take us to a restaurant and say this is where we are eating. The food
Was not bad but terribly expensive for the place. I would have preferred another restaurant.

Good tour but too much time spent in Liliesleaf Farm. Should have undertaken a short walking tour of Soweto and more time taking photos in Jo'burg CBD.
