Diepkloof Park
As we drive through Soweto one can not help to notice the major lifestyle contrast next to a big mention you would see a really small house.

Johannesburg and Apartheid Museum and Soweto Guided Full-Day Tour

This was a very informative tour that provides you with a detailed blueprint of the historical atrocities of the black South Africans. The tour guide Letlhogonolo “Lawrence” Mabasa was very friendly, patient, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. Lawrence provided additional tidbits of informative insights for each location associated with the tour. I highly recommend this tour and especially Lawrence as the #1 tour guide for a true authentic experience.
Jo'burg, Soweto and Apartheid Museum Day Tour Review
Jide T, 20-12-2022
The tour was excellent especially so with the Tour Guide assigned to me namely Lawrence Mapasa. He was patient, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. I will recommend him to be assigned to me or friends for any future tour.

Areas for improvement:
1, Calls to the company's phone numbers need to be picked as much as possible as most of my calls were not picked up until the last minute.
2, Company's call receivers need to be courtesous. I was not impressed with the response I got from the call center.
3, Information needs to be provided as to the days of the week that museums are opened so customers can decide on days to do tours.

Overall, the tour was great considering the servuce provide by Lawrence my special tour guide.

Pretoria Soweto adventure

Emma is a top draw, we had a day to do Soweto, Pretoria and Johannesburg. She hastily drafted our itinerary and what an experience we got. She’s so knowledgeable about everything corner in the township and the way she relates with everyone. Her rapport gives you what you can’t see in the pictures and videos about South Africa.

Good job Emma!
Great day with nice people.

It was a wonderful day. I've seen a lot of interesting things. But the most important was my guide Emma and her nice student, Barung.
She give me a lot of information, and even tough the topics or the situation could be dramatic, it was always with fun. I loved my journey with Emma, Barung and the 2 others guys with us.
The most important for is to meet nice people. So thank you very much Emma. Thank you for your time, your open minded and your humour.
En français : Merci pour tout.
Magnifique journée.
