Best in Guided Soweto Tours

On this half day tour in Soweto, your guide will take you past all the hotspots in Soweto. The Top Soweto tour will take you deep into the township culture, so you can enjoy a personal experience of how vibrant and lively this part of Johannesburg really is. 

On our way to Soweto we pass by the National Football Stadium, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the World Cup 2010. We enter the Diepkloof area, where we will take a walk past vendors selling just about anything.

In Orlando West we visit Vilakazi Street- drive past the former home of Nelson Mandela and past the home of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. You will have an opportunity to read about the Soweto uprising on 16 June 1976. On that tragic day an innocent little boy called Hector Pieterson gave up his life and kick-started the liberation of South Africa.

During this Soweto tour we will pass by the Mandela House. A visit into the museum is optional.

We continue our half day Soweto tour driving into one of the shanty towns where you get to interact with some of the locals.

By now you will have seen the good, the bad and the ugly facets of Soweto. We drive past the Soweto Campus of the Johannesburg University and end our tour with a stop at the largest hospital in the world: Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

Refunded ticket when holiday cancelled


Unfortunately we had to cancel our holiday at the last minute. After a couple of emails, MoAfrika Tours, agreed to refund the whole cost of the Soweto tour ticket :)

Informative and well-organized tour


- Reservation is very easy and convenient. I chatted with the agent through the chat window on MoAfrica official website. Response is also very quick. Love it. - Punctuality is superb. Driver/guide Bobo came exactly at 1.00 to pick us up as agreed. - Guide is very informative. He is very knowledgeable of Soweto and South Africa's history. - The only downside is the food. Please don't bring us to the same restaurant as flies started to swarm us when the food arrive. It was not a very pleasant sight to see. The meat was also very dry and tough.

Soweto Tour - A Must Do


A big thank you to our guide Nick, who with great passion and enthusiasm, showed off his wonderful city. This tour covers many different sites of interest, including Soweto. Nick did a wonderful job of driving us around, safely, explained the history of each site, generously stopped when requested, to buy souveniers, to take photos etc. Thanks once again Nick, you made our visit to JoBerg extra special

Outstanding Tour & Service!


These guys are pro's! I used them for private tours for my wife and I three times during our visit to South Africa! Soweto, Johannesburg, and Pretoria! If you can, try to get Clement to be your guide. He is ALL class and extremely knowledgeable! MoAfrika Tours are professionals worthy of your time and investment!

Stopping at FNB Soccer City, driving through "Beverly Hills", past the hostels and on to the Walter Sisulu Freedom Square in the heart of Kliptown was an experience of a lifetime! Visiting Regina Mundi Church with the most beautiful stained glass windows depicting the Soweto uprising gave a glimpse into what life was like during the 1970's apartheid era. Maponya Mall, Hector Peterson museum and surrounds, Vilakazi Street with a final stop for lunch at the landmark Cooling Towers gave a taste of the old and contemporary Soweto. An experience not to be missed!!!

Awesome tour


Coming all the way from Singapore, my partner and I really wanted a glimpse of Soweto. We chanced upon this half-day tour and we were glad the arrangement was made so easily despite being at very late notice. Bobo our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and shared with sincerity. Thank you for a really good time and also dropping us off at the airport!

Educational and enjoyable tour


Picked up from hotel but a bt if messing about with two minibuses and getting everyone together. A but irritating at first But the trip was very good. The guide was very knowledgeable and gave a good account of the history and key events Went on a bit at the end and could have shortened the stop around the memorial to the children shot in the protest against apartheid.

The tour touched my heart


I will start off by sharing that there had been confusion in the pick up date and time. When we were waiting for our pickup, and realized we may have been forgotten, we got on the phone. MoAfrika had a different date listed for us. They did some "juggling" and arranged to have a guide come and get us within the hour. What could have been a major let down, turned out to be incredibly accommodating. They took care of our needs and rocked it! Now, for the tour itself. What makes for a great tour? A sensitive and informative tour guide who knows how to pace him/herself. These are qualities that Mdu has. Mdu took us through Soweto, both via van and on foot, pointing out noteworthy sites and sharing the history. He was able to deliver information that is challenging in such an accessible way. Mdu was most open when asked any question. On a personal note, it felt awkward to be driving by the dwellings of people who live in such extreme poverty. Seeing the tin houses and hostels was not comfortable. Yet, we were able to have the discussion with Mdu. I valued seeing all types and standards of living and this is part of what my heart will carry. The current living situations are one of many moments of the tour that touched me deeply. Learning about Hector Pieterson and the Youth Uprisings of 1976. as well as other activities from that era now have a profound impact on my being. I really have to thank Mdu for this gift and MoAfrika for making this happen. With this review comes much gratitude.

We had an afternoon tour of Soweto and it was incredible. This vibrant yet poverty stricken area of Jo’burg is worth seeing! We were picked up in the middle of our 15min pick up window and the tour proceeded to follow an organised and well informed route. The highlight, was probably the tour through the Shanty Settlement and allowing us to enter the guides home which had 6 small rooms that housed 24 people! Crazy! People will say there’s not much to do in this city... blatant lie! Do this tour!

Very and definitely interesting


The guide who was also the driver of the mini-bus was very good but at times had to concentrate on driving and therefore difficult to hear.

Fascinating and Unexpected


MoAfrika Tours were very efficient at responding to my initial enquiries, providing all the necessary information I had requested. Once booked, the confirmation that highlighted the itinerary and stops on the tour was sent promptly. On the day, our tour guide, Khutso TG Modishane, arrived promptly to collect us from our residence. He was friendly, informative, and professional, pointing out points of interest along the way. The actual tour was fascinating and unexpected and flexible. A half day tour was perfect to experience all the main sights and it was a real treat to be able to experience it with someone local.

Very moving experience


The team a Mo Africa were able to get us on the tour at very late notice by us. Picked up promptly from hotel and then taken with a few other parties on a mini bus to township of Soweto. Amazing experience with plenty of interesting information from our guide Bobo. My understanding of Soweto was of a shanty town made famous by Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu but it's so much more and so much more diverse in terms of housing than that. One of the most interesting parts of the journey was the guided tour from a local of one of the Soweto shanty towns and a visit to a families home. A real eye opening experience and something I think my kids will never forget. A must do when visiting Johannesburg

SOWETO : the forgotten


A very emotional visit as well as the back up in the worse times of South African 's History with the Apartheid Museum visit .....but today, Soweto IS the present . Isn't the situation of 4 million people an ultra priority for the whole country including the African South African politician leaders ? what about the other smaller "Sowetos" of this country ? I believe that the next year vote will be one of the most important in the South African history .... never forget to vote , remember : one man , one vote Good Luck your french friend

The tour was very good, especially the guide, he was prepared, very nice, and has a good voice to listen from the van. but we did not go to the church as the itinerary said. I think it was because we were out of time, but that disappointed me. The rest very good. I would put a 4

Soweto now and then


This is a very informative tour and I highly recommend it. Our guide provided us with a lot of information about Soweto and since he grew up there this offered a more personal insight. In my opinion the highlights of the tour were the visit of the Hector Pieterson-Museum and the short walk in Soweto. The museum was a very powerful experience and made us remember what Apartheid did - and not that long ago. My only regret is that due to my flight schedules I could not do a full day tour which would have included the Apartheid Museum

Good, not perfect


I liked very much the tour. It is as advertised but the shuttle is very full and the guide speaks very low. People in the back of the bus cant listen. Should have a mic. Gostei do tour apesar de ser ruim para ouvir quem esta no fundo do onibus. Vale a pena para visitar soweto

This was a terrific tour


My husband and I booked a half-day tour of Soweto, just the two of us with a driver/guide. It was terrific! The guide was a Sowetan himself, and clearly loved the place. We talked for hours, and learned so much. Seeing the Freedom Charter monument was very moving, and we really enjoyed visiting a project that helps kids in the neighborhood. The buffet lunch on Vilakazi Street was a great way to top off the experience

I found Tsholo to be extremely friendly and competent guide on our half day tour of Soweto. Even though I’m a native South African , I learned many new facts I was not aware of. Really was an emotional experience giving candy to the little children in the shanty town was and seeing the Hector Peterson memorial . Mo was our guide of the shanty town and enjoyed his positive and polite manner. Though Soweto has many poor areas , I was given hope that many improvements have and are currently being made to help people.

Terrific tour with Thebang!


We had the best tour guide, Thebang - a knowledgeable, articulate and passionate young man from Soweto. He was so proud to take us on this tour and we also went on a walk through the poorest part of town (yes, it was very safe). We saw Vilakazi St, the Hector Pietersen museum and memorial, FNB stadium, Regina Mundi church and the different classes of Soweto. The tour concluded with a fantastic braai lunch at Chaf Pozi. Can't recommend the tour highly enough. It is very moving, and a real eye opener

Having never been to Soweto, or Johannesburg, I'm glad we went on this tour. MoAfrika were professional, friendly and informative and allowed us to see a side of Jo'burg and Soweto without feeling like we were intruding into people's personal space

A Short Day Trip


We only had one day in Johannesburg so we did a quick day tour. Thabang took us to capital hill to see the prison where Mandela once was held. This was an educational tour, and the layout is well designed so that the old part and the new part (where congressional meetings are held) can both be seen together. Afterwards, we stopped in Soweto too drive around. The best part of the tour was getting out of the vehicle to see the Township. During this time, we talked with some of the citizens who lived there and listened to their frustrations about the government’s lack of caring towards providing running water and safe electricity to the town. We went on a tour of someone’s house. Although the conditions were dire, it was heartwarming to hear about how everyone worked together to help support each other when it came to education, weddings, funerals and just everyday interactions. We stopped at a local shop were handcrafted items are made by locals. Afterwards, we went to lunch in what used to be a coal power plant. The location has since been turned into a hip spot where youth congregate to listen to DJ music and eat barbecue and pap. We ate as much as we could of the ribs, smoked wings and sausage before moving on to a tour of the area where Mandela lived after Robben Island. We finished the day with a very sad, yet informative tour of the children’s effort to end Apartheid at the Hector Pieterson Museum. Thabang did a good job of explaining the fateful events that happened to those children, before giving us time to browse the moving exhibits

Very good half-day tour, recommended


I visited Soweto with my family on a half-day tour in late August 2018. MoAfrika provided the tour. We were picked up from the house we were staying at and then transported to the apartheid Museum where the tour guide Nick was waiting for us. We did not enter the museum, we headed directly to Soweto with 03 other travelers. Nick had a friendly, lighthearted, fun but professional attitude toward his guiding. He showed us many interesting locations in and around Soweto. It was a very interesting experience, and we learned a lot about the history of the area. The apartheid era history of Soweto is very tragic, but currently there is a vibrance and energy to the area. One of the most interesting areas we visited was an informal settlement, where Nick handed us off briefly to another tour guide named Sizwe who showed us his community. The area is desperately poor, but the people are friendly and optimistic

Excellent half day tour


Although it took quite a while to pick everyone up in the morning, we certainly got our money’s worth on this tour. Our guide/driver was Tsholo. He was excellent! He was very easy to talk with and gave us great commentary as we traveled.. Julia was our guide for the walking tour, and she was also personable and excellent. I would highly recommend this tour to others. But be aware that even though it is advertised as half day, we opted to eat with the group and got back to our B and B at 4pm.. So almost a full day.

Our guide Tsholo prepared us well for this unique experience. He guided us with a lot of information about all the places and sights we saw this day. He asked us thought provoking questions, which helped deepen our understanding. We very much appreciated Tsholo as our guide. Barbara Baumann, Canada

He provided us with a realistic experience in and overview of various parts of Soweto, including time out of the vehiçle in Kliptown, at the Church, and the museum which was full of schoolchildren.

Brilliant insight into an interesting township


While only in Johannesburg briefly I wanted to try and get a feel for the culture in the limited time I had there. I decided to do the half day tour of Soweto and I was very happy that I chose MoAfrika as the tour group to do this with. Our tour guide -Thabang- was awesome and being a 3rd generation Soweton he had a really deep knowledge of the township and it's history. Thabang took us from the wealthier parts of Soweto to the lower class areas where we able to walk around one area and meet some of the locals. We went up Vilakazi street to Nelson Mandela's house and to the Hector Pieterson museum and the famous Orlando towers and while going between all these attractions Thabang informed us on the significance and history of them and also other places of the area that we passed. In all it was a great day and really gave me an insight into Soweton culture and education on the history of a place which played such a significant part in one of histories most recent darker periods. The only real negative was that it was incredibly hot and it would be nice if water was provided on the tour. If you are in the area and have limited time I highly recommend this Tour. Thanks Thabang and MoAfrika!

If you only have half a day and you cannot take the full day Johannesburg tour, this is a great way to learn about the history and culture of Joberg. You will take a trip through some areas of Joberg that aren't that well visited, however, if you really want to understand the history and what life is like for everyone, this is a great trip to take

Nice tour


I found MoAfrika when I was looking for Safari tours. Their website seemed was very complete and a got a quick answer for muito doubts. In the negotiation, I got a half day Soweto tour. First of all, everything went well in the safari. Despite a misunderstanding about my pick up address, they made it. The Soweto tour was really nice. I had heard some disapoiting opinions about others agencies. However, I had a great experience. It was not just a drive around the neighbourhood or a walk tô Mandela's house, there was also a visit to Regina Mundi's church, a shanty Town and a social project. We could heard from locals their work, visiting important sites. During all the time, I felt secure. Finally, Bobo was really helpful and gentle. Defenetly I recomend MoAfrika's tours

a nice way to see highlights of Soweto


this is not the world's greatest tour, but it's OK. Considering how tickets got cheaper as you added more people, I thought we would be a group of three alone...didn't really expect such a big group for the tour. The tour was really only about 2 1/2 hours by the time you take out transit time at the beginning and end. The visit to the n.g.o. in Kliptown was rather frustrating. We're still not sure what they do and how many people they are serving. It could be a much more effective fundraiser with a bit of polish on the presentation. For people who have been around poverty, it's really quite frustrating. Now I've been to Soweto, I don't expect I'll ever really be back...I'm satisfied

We were delighted we chose this tour and can only recommend Stanley and his patience with all the questions and expansive knowledge. If you have a half day free would really recommend

Eye-opening visit to Soweto


MoAfrika offer a relaxed, laid-back tour with guides from this vibrant township of more than 1.8 million people. Apart from the thoughtful museum explaining the 1976 student uprisings against the apartheid regime, the visit to Nelson Mandela's house, the Vilikasi Street vibe, the cooling towers, the most striking experience is found in the daily lives of township people. There are substantial contrasts in living conditions ranging from mansions to very basic shanties but an enduring theme is an entrepreneurial 'can do' attitude! This, above all, is the learning for visitors to Africa

Highly recommend this tour with Stanley as the guide. He gave us a a real experience of Soweto as someone who lives there and is very knowledgeable about the history and the culture. Stanley was able to present all the facts with both understanding and humour. We saw where Nelson Mandela used to live as well as where people today reside in shacks waiting for permanent accomodation to become available. Our ages ranged from 13 to 80 years and everyone enjoyed the tour and learnt so much about the people of Soweto. Highly recommend

Behind the scenes: insight into Soweto daily life


We had a short layover in Jburg and booked a private half-day tour to Soweto with MoAfrika Tours. Our guide Thabang picked us up in the airport and our tour started from the first minutes in the car as Thabang told us about our plan for the day and interesting facts about SA, Jburg and Soweto along the way. We saw how different classes of people live together in Soweto, visited Motsoaledi informal settlement and talked with local residents, visited classical sites such as Mandela's House and had a nice braai lunch. We made it to the airport just in time despite the traffic and Thabang even managed to squeeze in a 10 min stop for us to do our souvenir shopping on the way back. Overall it was interesting to listen to Thabang and we had great time. Thank you MoAfrica!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Soweto. It was a real eye opener and we were taken to all the important places and landmarks. We especially enjoyed the walking tour through the informal settlement.

would recommend this tour - I was travelling alone on business and booked the trip at midday and was picked up at 14.15 with a slight delay because of traffic (presidential inauguration the following day and a significant police presence). Joe (the driver) and Gabriel (tour guide) were extremely apologetic, friendly, informative and frankly friendly and welcoming. I was conflicted about taking the tour from a social perspective of feeling like I was a voyeur of those less fortunate -v- visiting a location of a hero in Nelson Mandela. I am still conflicted but ultimately glad I went. I felt safe and completely as ease that’s to both Gabrielle and joe

Informative tour of Soweto and state of SA politics and inhabitants. Excellent.


ake the morning half day tour. They pickup and your hotel or just about anywhere in Johannesburg ( Including airport) . Guides know Soweto history and current situation. Small group allows for a lot of questions and answers. We found this tour to provide a view of SA from a different perspective and have open discussion about the history of Soweto and state of current residents. Some may find the part of tour in the shanty town disturbing, but it does show the raw differences of the population and degree of poverty that exists on the outskirts of Johannesburg. I found Viakazi Street to be a disappointment. No "real" history just restaurants and souvenier stands geared to tourists. Street dancers and performers from the poor areas of Soweto. We were asked not to tip the performers, since the money is almost immediately spend on drugs. (Tip- Winnie Mandela museum has very nice restrooms) The tour ends at the Hector Pieterson museum which is well worth spending some time in. This tour is a good complement to a visit to Apartheid Museum ( should be seen before Soweto).

Sowetoの半日ツアーを依頼しました。 一人だと料金が高かったのでプライベートツアーかと思いきや実際は他のグループとのシェアリングでした。 有名なCity Sightseeingのツアーだとローズバンクからダウンタウンを通っていかないといけないので、空港乗継から直接Sowetoだけ見たいならこちらでいいと思います。 サッカースタジアム、旧発電所、観光地化されたマンデラとツツの生家付近の大通り、ヘクターピーターソン博物館と提携している貧困地区を回るツアーで、半日ツアーの中ではそこそこ盛沢山の内容でした

Une immersion dans Soweto, une autre vision de l'Afrique du Sud


Parti pour passer quelques jours de réunions travail à Johannesburg, à Sandton, quartier qui ressemble plutôt à la Floride, je voulais avoir rapidement un autre point de vue sur la ville et son histoire, d'où cette visite rapide (départ de mon hôtel à 9h30, retour à 15h) avant de reprendre l'avion vers Paris. Une visite très intéressante, en groupe de 8 personnes, en partie en voiture à travers les différents quartiers de Soweto, avec un stop pour une visite à pied dans les petites maisons en tôle, la visite du musée Hector Pieterson (qui présente les évènements qui ont conduit aux manifestations de Soweto survenues le 16 juin 1976 et qui s'élevaient pacifiquement contre les lois d'apartheid sur l'enseignement). Un visite très relax avec un guide natif de ce quartier. Aucun sentiment d'insécurité à aucun moment. Déjeuner au pieds des 2 tours du Orlando Power Station et retour vers l'hôtel. Un très bon moment. Seul regret : ne pas avoir pu faire la journée complète et visiter le musée de l'apartheid

El tour lo hicimos con un local, el chico era muy simpático y servicial, nos recogió en el hotel y nos llevó a Soweto. Allí vimos las tres distintas zonas: alta - media y baja. En la zona baja nos bajamos del coche y nos metimos a pie dentro de la aldea, los niños eran para comérselos y todas las personas súper dispuestas. Fue una experiencia inolvidable. Todo genial

Ottimo tour denso di emozioni


Abbiamo scelto di fare il tour di Soweto con Moafrica viste le belle recensioni su TripAdvisor e non posso che confermare a pieni voti. Pick-up puntale all'hotel e in quello degli altri, in totale eravamo in 11 tutti di diverse nazionalità. La nostra guida Nick fin da subito ci ha spiegato tutta la storia della township e di Mandela. Le soste programmate del tour erano organizzate in modo ottimale con il tempo sufficiente per vedere ogni cosa. Nick ci ha accompagnato in ogni spostamento dandoci anche del tempo a disposizione individuale per girare in base ai nostri interessi senza mai farci sentire in pericolo. È stata una mattina emozionante, non si può venire in sud Africa senza fare la visita di soweto con Moafrica. Consigliatissimo

Fantastic soweto day tour


Stanley was a fantastic guide. He was knowledgeable and explained both South Africas and Sowetos history in detail. We were a group of 14 aged 4- 70, and all of us enjoyed it. Thanks MoAfrika for a memorable day

Excellent tour


This was one of the best half day tours we did in South Africa. It is actually much longer than half day, got back to hotel at 2.30. Had an excellent guide and the tour is very informative. We learnt so much about Soweto that we didn't know. Loved the visit to the school, the children were delightful. An excellent way to spend a day in Johannesburg, a must see attraction!
