The Memorial focuses on routes used by protesting students, now widely known as the June 16 1976 Students March Trail. It is a principal stop along the June 16 trail offering an overview of the 1976 struggle route together with links to other sites of significance on the trail. The June 16 Memorial Acre compliments and builds on the narrative at the Hector Pieterson Memorial. It is an artistic expression of the story of June 16, 1976 student uprisings. It is also a host to the statue of Tsietsi Mashinini, one of the leaders of the June 16, 1976 student uprising.
We learned so much on this tour. Our guide Phineas was so knowledgeable not only about Soweto but the history of Johannesburg, he really made this day such a special experience for us. We would highly recommend this tour.
Picked up from Garden Court O R Tambo, Very good half day seeing Soweto, made all the better by having the driver/guide 'James all to ourselves.
Great tour, saw a lot of Soweto. Guide was really helpful and chatty.
Visiting Soweto was my favorite part of my time in Joburg. It was the most culturally enriching experience. An absolute MUST DO. Highly recommended!
Excellent tour that provided a deeper understanding of South Africa's history. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and was a very safe driver. I highly recommend this tour.

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.
