    Hector Pieterson Museum
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    On this half day tour in Soweto, your guide, who was born and raised in Soweto, will take you past all the hotspots in Soweto. The 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 Soweto tour driving into one of the shanty towns where you get to interact with some of the locals. 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.

Excellent Tour With Excellent Guide
Feb. 2020
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating and thought-provoking tour of Soweto. M.K., our driver/guide, was knowledgeable and fun. He was able to pass on a fascinating account of life in Soweto — from its upscale sections to its shanty towns. We enjoyed our unique exchanges with real people in one of the shanty town neighborhoods. It was an excellent introduction to a part of South Africa that we had missed on two previous visits to this welcoming country. As for personal safety, we never felt threatened or tense at any time during our visit.
