    As we had a 10+ hour layover at O.R Tambo, we contacted Mhlanganisi Tours to see what was possible. They were super responsive and flexible, and were able to take the Joburg and Soweto tour with us on a last minute notice.

    Pastor came to pick us up at the airport and took us around Soweto and Johannesburg for the whole afternoon. He was very knowledgeable and knew loads about the different sights we visited. We experience the tour as authentic and it gave us a good idea of what Johannesburg and Soweto are like. It opened our eyes and we only want to go see more of the city after this tour!

    Thebang is an excellent tour guide and we had a fantastic time with him! He personalized the tour based on our interests, and was extremely knowledgeable about culture, history, geography, politics...and answered all of our many questions. He was very informative and personable - we had a lot of fun and learned so much. Definitely a highlight of our visit to South Africa! - Cheesegirl & Anthony :)

    An absolute eye-opening pleasure to take this tour through Soweto with Dumi as a guide. He owns a clear, compassionate and fun way to express his manifold and deep knowledge about the history and present of the township he grew up in. He takes care of his guests a lot, is open for all questions and fun chats. We learned a lot, and had great fun visiting this moving place!!

    Thank you!!

    This was a great tour! Our guide was super informative of history and present day relations in Soweto and South Africa. There was even a great opportunity for a beer tasting at the community brewery! I felt safe the entire time and would recommend for anyone looking to dive deeper into this township.

    Gilda was a terrific host and I would highly recommend this tour. Our aim was to find a tour to show us as many facets to life in Soweto as possible. We found what we were looking for.

    We had a fantastic tour and Khutso was a great, knowledgeable and funny guide! He made the experience completely enjoyable and we were impressed to learn that he knows 11 languages! We learned a lot throughout the journey and had a great meal as well. We went in thinking this may be dangerous and were completely wrong; I can’t stress that enough.
    Future travellers need to bring cash. We were unprepared when we visited. There are lots of things to buy, people to tip and places to donate money.
    Thank you for this wonderful journey!

    I had one day before a work conference to see Johannesburg, and this tour is perfect for first timers! It is well paced, fun and insightful and really opened my eyes to the dynamic and contrasting city that Joburg is. My tour guide Nosipho was amazing, she was friendly, professional and very accommodating. She picked me up at 8.30am from Sandton and I was home at 5.30, after a nice lunch and tour at Soweto. I highly recommend it if you want to get a flavor of this city.

    Rambo was a fantastic guide, born and raised in Soweto - he's very knowledgeable and makes the day a lot of fun. The taxi ride really adds to the local experience. We both felt we learnt a lot about Soweto's painful history, as well as culture and a cold glass of Soweto Gold was the perfect ending to our tour. Highly recommended!

    It was a great experience and especially because of Thabangs knowledge and entertainment it was the best goodbye for my holidays
    If you are doing the trip with Thabang and have seen my comment please hug him for me 👍

    What a treat. I was very nervous about booking this tour blind on the internet, but tripadvisor and its ratings didn't let us down. Our driver met us at the airport, drove us around Soweto and even Johannesburg and returned us to the airport for our flight home. Our flight arrived late so we missed the museums so our driver arranged for a docent volunteer to meet us on the square for our own personal tour. We nearly cried it was so impactful. Then we stopped for South African food. It was a highlight of our trip.
