Why should travelers book this tour because Soweto represents the hard-fought struggle against apartheid . We look beyond the bloody legend of the 16 June uprising and behind the hardened face of resistance politics, to core of Soweto- its people. Soweto is about people leading their lives- working and commuting, celebrating and grieving. See the poverty of informal settlement shack and hostel in contrast with the upper class suburbs of Diepkloof in Soweto.
