Lerato was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He gave me a real insight to the history of Soweto as well as the current life. The ride itself was not as gruesome as I feared. There were a few hills but for the most part, it was a great way to see the area.

I can only recommend the tour to everyone. Our guide was super nice, took us to all the important places and explained the events. We felt safe at all times as our guide felt like he knew everyone in the neighborhood. Perfect 2h to learn more about Soweto.

Thank you Oliver for the very interesting tour around your neighborhood and for all the information provided about the history and the everyday life of the community and a special thanks for inviting us in with the loving family for a local beer tasting❣️
