Why the travelers book this tour because Soweto represents the hard-fought struggle against apartheid. We look beyond the bloody legend of the 16 June 1976 uprising and behind the hardened face of resistance politics, to the core Soweto- its people. Soweto is about people leading their lives - working and commuting, celebrating and grieving, see the poverty of an informal settlement shack and hostels in contrast with upper class suburbs of Diepkloof in Soweto. this tour promises a warm experience of this fascinating place.

Joseph of Jeff Tours did a marvelous tour.

Joseph, our guide was excellent. He was informative about the history of apartheid and the struggles to get it abolished. He gave us a wonderful tour of the neighborhoods of Soweto. He explained the effects of tribal affiliation on South African citizens and their lives. He is fluent English of course but in French as well. We highly recommend him from Jeff Tours.
Very informative experience

We booked the tour last minute, and we could not have made a better decision. My husband and I had a wonderful tour with Gilroi. Excellent communication prior to the on time pick up from our hotel. He was very knowledgeable and super courteous. An unforgettable experience. Gilroi was patient and provided enough time to view the sights and for a tasty lunch at a local restaurant. The tour definitely exceeded our expectations. The pace is appropriate for for novices, seasoned travelers, and various levels of mobility. We travel extensively and this is one of the best tours we've ever experienced. Highly recommended for a must-do/see activity in Joburg.
Great Tour! Must do!
