The tour was an amazing introduction into the recent history of social, economic and political upheaval in South Africa. From Constitution Hill, site of a former prison and current seat of the Constitutional Court; to the Apartheid Museum, documenting the history of national separatism, to a drive-through tour of Soweto, the focal point of anti-apartheid protest, including a visit to the 1976 Hector Pieterson shooting site, where protest began and a visit to Nelson Mandela's home in Soweto.

In part self-guided, in part docent-led, during the drive and at or stops, our tour guide Clement pointed out sites of historical significance and provided color (with brutal honesty) on local and national issues. He and his partner Nathi, our tour van driver, contributed greatly to our day. To complete the day, we enjoyed a buffet dinner of local food at a Soweto restaurant.

Solly, the tour operator, was polite and responsive to questions. Pickup and dropoff were at local hotels. In all, it was great experience for a first-time visitor; I highly recommend this tour.

I had an open day in Joburg and booked this tour the day before. Solly contacted me immediately to confirm pickup timing and location. I had an excellent time and will absolutely do another of his tours the next I'm in the city. We were still in the holiday week so the Apartheid Museum was closed so instead we spent more time in Soweto and the Hector Pieterson Museum. The guide/ driver was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about SA history (his name escapes me). I really appreciated his patience for such a far-reaching group of foreigners. I felt like he had the energy, knowledge and wherewithal to attend to us all. SA is a beautiful and complicated country and it was a privilege to learn a little bit through the tour and our guide's perspective for the day.

I enjoyed the tour. It was three tours in one. Johannesburg, Soweto, and the apartheid museum. There was lots of culture and knowledge acquired. To be in a place we’d heard so much about was amazing. It’s so surreal and makes you realize we don’t get a complete story in the U.S. I just wish out fellow tourist had been on time so we didn’t have to rush through some parts of the tour. Great experience!

I was really excited about this tour because it encompasses so much and allows you to taste a variety of South African dishes. The tour guide was good and the food in Soweto was yummy. A lot was learnt about the history and even though its a full day, it is quite manageable to keep the energy up and keep it interesting. South Africa is a big tipping country, so tip for tour guide, then tour guide at Constitutional Hill, then two different dance groups in Soweto and tour guide at Nelson Mandelas House. You don't have to tip, but if you want to, then would suggest to have some cash with you. The reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I wasn't contacted about where to meet or how we would be picked up. I contacted the tour guide to arrange it so was fine, but just didn't get an option when I didn't stay at one of the locations listed for pick when making the online booking. My biggest disappointment was that we didn't go to the apartheid museum. We were told on the tour that it was closed, but since this was the part I was looking forward to most and noted as included in the price, we should have been advised before so we could have the option to book on a day it was open. We were taken to Hector Peterson memorial but that was outside and again no access to the museum. Please note the open days for those for future. Other than that we enjoyed it.

What an amazing day - a very powerful tour. It is a must now for any of my guests. It's impossible to understand South Africa without knowing or being reminded of its history and spending time in one of its most iconic communities. Clement, our guide, brought it all to life. The Constitution Hill heritage museum was the perfect place to start and incredibly impactful. I highly recommend this tour.
