Great tour
, Jun 2019
I booked the tour the last minute (like 4 hours before midnight of the departure date), but the MoAfrika Tours still made their best to arrange the hotel pickup. The tour was perfect and very knowledgeable. Everything went well as planned but slightly fast paced- I wished there was more time. The driver as well as the tour guide was always enthusiastic and answered all the questions the guests had. I had a very good time and I think it is worthy to buy this product.
Soweto Tour with Beau-Beau
, Dec 2018
A brilliant guide, with so much information to share and delivered in a friendly yet knowledgeable manner. The walkabout into a shanty village in Soweto was eye-opening and whilst it was sad to see how some people are forced to live, it was necessary for me & daughter to see this side of life. The Briai was yummy at lunchtime. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour, and I hope you get Beau-Beau - he is a star. Thank you Beau-Beau. Meredith
Lovely people, eye opening experience!!

From start to finish our guide was very friendly, great fun and more than willing to chat about anything we asked. It was an eye opening tour that makes you feel more than lucky for everything you have.
Humbling, historical tour
, Nov 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour as I was so looking forward to learning more about apartheid and the creation of 'Townships'. Prompt pick-up , good pace, Nice air-conditioned vehicle, nice small group .Lunch was good-local Braai, nothing fancy but good to try local dishes and get a nice cold drink. Hector Pieterson & Apartheid Museum were very informative....I very satisfied with tour , very humbled to hear local people talk about their life in a township.
Definitely worth doing

We saw a lot and had a very enthusiastic and committed guide who really added to the day. Apartheid museum tells its tale very well and would be worth a visit on its own. Lunch didn't suit my wife though.

Our tour guide, Thabang, was knowledgeable, friendly and engages all of us. We had an inside perspective from a native Soweto gentleman who shared multiple perspectives! Highly recommend this tour and particularly this tour guide. Thank you Thabang for sharing yourself and your homeland with us!Baileys

I'd highly recommend this tour with MoAfrica. Every aspect of the experience was well designed and executed. Scheduling with Viator was easy, pick up and drop off at my hotel was efficient, the tour guide, Bobo, was outstanding and sufficient time was allowed for each of the stops. Our group filled the mini van and from the questions asked, it seemed that folks could hear the narration even in the back of the van. The website accurately describes all of the sights which provide a good overview of major historical events. The BBQ lunch was delicious and fun. Two hours at the Apartheid museum after lunch was enough time to walk through quickly, but not sufficient time to really explore all the exhibits in depth. If you have limited time, this is the way to go!
