Soweto Tours

About the tour

All our Soweto tours are conducted as private tours only; this allows for a personalised, flexible experience for just you and your family / friends / colleagues. You will be collected and dropped off from your preferred address in Johannesburg and as the tour is yours it does allow for some flexibility on pickup and drop off times as well as the length of time (within reason) that you would like to spend in Soweto. So if you want to enjoy lunch at a restaurant, or a drink at a local shebeen, or spend more time in a museum or at the creche we are happy to accommodate these extensions. We will also do our best to accommodate any special requests to suit your interests, just chat your knowledgeable guide or send details via the enquiry form.
