Requests to include or exclude certain sites or routes will be accepted within reasonable limits. A private tour guide can hire for a fee.

You can budget upto 6-hours for this half day tour from the time you leave your hotel till return. Enjoy sightseeing en-route to Soweto (especially Johannesburg's old gold mine belt). Pass through the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto (a hospital established during World War II for the British Military). The first stop over is the Hector Pieterson Memorial Museum where you'll spend about an hour learning about the events and background surrounding the Soweto Uprising in which youths in colonial South Africa arose against white minority rule (Apartheid).

From there head to the very popular and emotional Mandela House on Vilakazi Street where the former South African statesman, revolutionary and philanthropist Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) lived before he way jailed for 27 years for advocating for the rights of black people who were being oppressed by the Apartheid Government. Budget 45mins for this section of the tour.

Just down the street is the house of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu who was a compatriot to Nelson Mandela in the struggle for freedom in South Africa (both of them are Nobel-prize Winners). Then take a short drive to The iconic Orlando Towers aka Soweto twin towers where you can choose from a variety of sporting activities, the most popular being the 100m bungee jumping in between the two cooling towers (own expense). At the bottom of the towers is the vibey and trendy Chaf Pozi restaurant for some South African flavor where you will be spoiled with traditional foods such as spit braai meat locally known as "shisa nyama". You can expect to be here for a good hour.

The last hour of the tour is a drive around South Africa's oldest and largest township, get to view the slums and shanty towns that have become established over the years as a result of deep rooted poverty and high unemployment levels. You will even enjoy the privilege of chatting with some locals going on about their business from housewives to barbers on the street corner (open-air), sculpture designers, carpenters, flea market stalls and the like.

Our guide is Trevor Tutu, son of Desmond Tutu. Their family home is on Vilakazi street, the same street where the Mandelas lived, and the same street where Hector Pieterson was shot by police in the 1976 uprising against Apartheid. This is site of the famous photo by Sam Nzima of the fatally wounded Hector Pieterson being carried by Mbuyisa Makhubu.

Trevor offers a truly unique perspective on the attractions and is probably the best qualified guide for Soweto and also a notable commentator on the state of South Africa today. He is a fountain of knowledge and a charismatic conservationist.

We'll visit Vilakazi Street, Soweto where Trevor will show you the spot where Hector Pieterson was shot, then we walk from there to the Museum,the Mandela home, the Tutu home, the police station and the school. We end with optional lunch at one of the restaurants on Vilakazi Street.




First we drive to Soweto during which Trevor will give you an overview of the background of Apartheid in South Africa leading up to the events that took place at the sites you'll be visiting. He'll also talk about various landmarks coming in to Soweto.

Then we will walk through Vilakazi Street, stopping at each house of significance - Mandela house, Tutu house, The church, the school, the police station and the spot where Hector Pieterson was shot. We'll go in to the Hector Pieterson museum and also visit a great souvenir shopping spot, before we take some time for lunch at one of the restaurants on Vilakazi street.

Next we will visit the Sisulu home and go past Orlando hostel which was to accommodate migrant workers, before heading to Regina Mundi, the church used for incognito resistance meetings. From there on the way back we can go past various other points of interest depending on time and the guests interests.
