    The trip was very comprehensve and our guide was great! The restaurant was excellent, on the street where Mandella and Tutu both lived in Soweto. In fact, we decided to ask for our guide for a second tour to the Cultural Village the next day, which was also excellent.

    The whole tour was great!! A very enriching experience filled with interesting facts about townships in general as well as very meaningful and moving topics related to Soweto and the role it played in fighting apartheid.
    Byron was a great guide, he knew a lot of things and was very very kind and informative! I loved everything.

    WOW! Amazing service.
    Steve was amazing and very flexible when we had to change our plans. We arranged transfers from JNB to Mabula and found our wonderful driver Tsholo with great ease. A pleasant drive with convenient comfort stop en route and much information given about South Africa en route.
    After our safari break, we were collected promptly, with no delays and dropped to our JNB hotel. The following day Nosipho collected us for our private Ultimate Johannesburg trip. To say she was phenomenal is an understatement. The tour was flexible and relevant to the needs of two adults and a 12 and 14 year old. Made interesting, sharing experiences and being a resident of Soweto all added to our awesome day out.
    Initially hesitant of a tour of J'burg, we are soooo glad to have used Stephenson Adventures as extremely professional, reliable and accommodation with fantastic communication and clean, well maintained vehicles for all our trips.
    For sure we will use again when visiting SA.
    Thank you Steve, Nosipho and Tsholo

    We are a family of 4 with 2 young children. We wanted to learn more about the African history and culture. This tour ticked all our boxes and a lot more - and it was pitched perfectly for the boys too!

    Our guide was amazing - knew all the facts and could answer all our questions! I could listen to her for hours! It was very relaxed and we had lots of giggles along the way! Thank you!

    Linda from Lebo’s bicycle tours took us on an immersive tour of Soweto and was such an amazing guide. Full of knowledge, humour and all round great guy. This warm and vibrant community welcomed us with open hearts and we learnt so much about the history of Soweto within this atmosphere topped off by a delicious lunch back at the community hostel. The hostel itself is a truly magical and unique place. If you want to feel a part of the Soweto community. Do this! Sending love and thanks. xx

    The Ultimate Johannesburg Tour was great and our tour guide was very professional. I liked the most the walk and talk through soweto. I would recommend that the walk could be longer and therefore one of the many museums could be skipped. Kind regards

    This was an early morning affair to be able to get around all the places we needed to see. We went through constitution hill, apartheid museum and ended up in Soweto. Full day of different experiential encounters on this wonderful holiday tour best organized by MoAfrica. It could’ve been any better than that. The food is so good everywhere you turn, people are polite and helpful, friendly and willing to go an extra mile. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and forthcoming with information. A very passionate guy who takes pride in his work. Thabang was his name and I would highly recommend him.

    Steve and his adventures, wow, where should I start…the day was full of great, comfortable accommodations. The vehicle we traveled in was so comfortable to us all, which was a great kick off to the day. The knowledge Steve has for the cities he loves is quite impressive. We learned so much rich history about Soweto and J’burg that at the end of the tour we confidently felt we could pass anyone’s test of our gained knowledge. Steve made sure that our every need was met, making special accommodations happen to each request. Do yourself a vacation treat and GO with Stephenson Adventures.

    Our driver Nkululeko took us on the most memorable trip we have ever had. We were taken into the heart of the township where we met and spoke to some incredible people who are living in such terrible poverty. We were welcomed by everyone with smiles and the children were adorable and so happy. What an experience. Nkululeko is a credit to your company and have no hesitation in recommending him and your fantastic tour
