I was the only English speaking person in a tour group of German Tourist but our tour guide Rudie made the extra effort to provide narrative in both languages ... the visit to the squatter camp in Soweto was excellent and well managed by our tour guide ... well worth it
The tour was very informative and our tour give, Phineas, was top rate.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, with a very informative guide. Would definitely recommend to hear all about the history of this interesting place.
Brilliant tour of Soweto! Highly recommend. I was very lucky to be the only one on the tour and found it to be very informative.
Our tour guide was great, very informative, didn't mind us asking questions and we enjoyed the tour.
However, information should be provided about how many people we needed to tip and what was an acceptable tip. We were required to give 4 tips and a donation to a school.
This made the tour quite expensive. The souvenirs were overpriced as I bought a similar item elsewere for the same price but it was 4 times larger.
This was a great tour and our guide was terrific. Perhaps a slight improvement could be the addition of a short refreshment stop, as it was quite a long morning without a break. But it is certainly highly recommended.
Really pleased we did this tour. Our guide was excellent. He was full of information and a very careful driver as well
Seeing Soweto from the point-of-view of a resident was well worth the time.
Outstanding Tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and quite funny with a very serious type of tour. I would strongly recommend it
A very impressive tour. Professional tourguide, including a visit to the Hector Pieterson museum and Nelson Mandela house. Worth every penny!
Our guide was fantastic! The wealth of information he shared with us was great!
Very interesting, especially the Hector Petersen museum. Punctual and lots of commentary.
The trip was very good. Well organised and the driverguide was very knowledgable and friendly. I do recommend.
This tour gave us an interesting look at people's lives, though it did feel a bit intrusive.
We recently booked the half day tour. What was good: Our guide was polite, flexible and accommodating and gave a lot of information bringing to life Soweto, its history and how it is developing nowadays.
No so good: the tour lasted more than half a day and we spend most of the time (6 hours approx) in the van. The vehicle had small windows and it wasn't easy to see outside and that made it feel like a long day.
What could be better: More scheduled stops and more opportunity to interact with locals.
This tour is OK. I was in the car with 6 German people who didn't really want to check anything out and it was more of a time-killer type of activity for them. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Felt very safe as a single female traveling alone.
We had a rocky start after being informed by email that we would be collected at 7.15am in the foyer we were left waiting for more than 2 hours before finally being picked up. We were eventually able to contact the company and after a number of calls they informed us the driver was running late. This wasn't a good start as we had a long flight from Australia the day before and could easily have done with the extra sleep. The tour itself was very good and well worth doing, just a shame about the late pick up.
