Nomsa was amazing. She was very familiar with Soweto, the history & what it’s like to live there. She shared her experiences, took us to the Mandela House, the Apartheid Museum, & the Hector Peiterson Museum. We were so fortunate to meet and talk with Hector’s sister Antoinette Sithole while we were there. She was such a gracious & caring person. She even took photos with us. A real extra bonus for us. We had lunch at a local restaurant, trying yummy African food, including tripe that was so tasty. If you haven’t tried it you must do so! I can’t praise Nomsa enough for an amazing day focused on the culture & food of Jo’Burg! THANK YOU Nomsa!!

Cycling through Soweto turned out to be an experience in itself. You see how the people live, you learn the stories behind the historical events and you visit the impressive places where everything happened in 1976. Our guide, TK, guided us safely through this busy township. Lunch was a local snack, the Kota, which ensured that we no longer needed dinner. Never felt unsafe for a moment and perhaps the part of Johannesburg that impressed us the most and will remain with us as the best memory of Johannesburg.

Our guide was excellent in all ways. We felt safe the entire time. He gave a lots of insights into the history of Joburg. He gave us a nice history of his own journey. We interacted with very well, and he answered all our many questions. The entire experience was excellent.

Molt bona experiència. Teniem poca estona i només a la tarda. El guia, en Vincent, va estar fantàstic amb la ruta i totes les explicacions.

A memorable and very worth doing tour. Our tour guide, Sunny, where excellent and very knowledgeable.
