It was a great tour. The guide was engaging and knowledgeable. GetYourGuide should give guidelines to participants about tipping. No one on our tour (except me) tipped the tour leader, driver or even the volunteer who gave us a thorough presentation in Hector Pieterson Memorial Park. Please understand the tipping culture in an economy with over 25% unemployment and where everyone needs a gig to survive. 10 - 20 Rand per person goes a long way- that’s 70 - 1.40 $US.

Our full day tour with James was fantastic! He did such a great job at explaining the history and facts about all of our stops and was entertaining as well. It didn’t feel like an all day event since he made everything enjoyable. All of the places we visited were great with a good amount of time at each stop. We definitely learned a lot and tried to soak it all in. I would highly recommend this tour, especially with James!

Great, knowledgeable and nice guide Nick . The only downside is that we spent a lot of time driving around to pick up others on the trip. May be an earlier time would work better to avoid the peak hour. But overall very satisfied. We didn’t have much to donate in Soweto, bear in mind when you go there !!!

Got a great grasp of the city history and culture in a jam-packed day across Jo'burg and Soweto. The very knowledgeable guide not only provided information but answered questions, as we saw old gaols, 50 story view of Jo'burg, Apartheid museum, and parts of Soweto itself. Very good.

Our guide Sam was prompt and very knowledgable. He was a wealth of knowledge for the entire trip. We enjoyed Constitution Hall and Mandela’s House. The Soweto was very intriguing. This tour gets REAL and in your face as soon as you enter Soweto.
