Highlights
    What to Expect
    Get picked up at your Johannesburg hotel for a quick introduction before starting your journey to Soweto.

    Pass one of the World Cup stadiums along the way, and then arrive in the Diepkloof area full of vendors selling all kinds of things. Travel along Vilakazi Street in Orlando West, a street on which the homes of two Nobel Peace Prize winners are—Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Choose an optional visit to the Mandela House. Learn about the 1976 Soweto Uprising and the death of a young boy named Hector Pieterson.

    Continue through Soweto into a shanty town where you can meet some of the locals. Travel past the Soweto Campus of Johannesburg University and then the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, the world's largest hospital, where your tour ends.

    Rejoin your guide after a lunch break (own expense) to visit the famous Apartheid Museum before returning to Johannesburg. Visit the Telkom Tower, an imposing 882 feet (269 meters) tall. See Constitution Hill, where Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi were once imprisoned, as well as the court (when it's not in session).

    See the longest bridge in Southern Africa, the Nelson Mandela Bridge, and visit the area called Newtown to stroll along the Jazz Walk of Fame in Mary Fitzgerald Square. Finish your tour with an elevator ride up to the top of the Carlton Centre, the tallest building on the continent.

    I wish we could remember the exact amount t but it wasn't more than $100. EA. There were a total of 5 on the tour and it was definitly worth the price.
