Full-Day Soweto City Tour with Apartheid Museum
From US$78.58
Spend a day exploring the most famous township in South Africa with this full-day small-group guided tour of Soweto from Johannesburg. Join a knowledgeable local guide for a visit to the renowned Apartheid Museum and huge Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. Eat a buffet lunch of traditional local dishes. Enjoy round-trip transportation including hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Start your day with a pickup from your accommodation by your guide then begin the journey to Soweto. On the way, you will pass by the famous National Football Stadium City, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Soccer World Cup 2010. From there, enter the Diepkloof area, where the vendors are located, selling just about anything you can imagine. In Orlando West, you will visit Vilakazi Street and drive past the Mandela House where a visit into the museum is optional as well as past the home of Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Next, read about the Soweto uprising on June 16, 1970 in South Africa. For you to truly experience the full history and heritage of this famous township, the guide will take you into the depths of the shanty towns where you get to interact with some of the locals and see how they live. Drive past the Soweto Campus of the Johannesburg University before lunch and make a stop at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. After your buffet lunch, visit the world famous Apartheid museum where you will learn about the history of South Africa and the struggle of its people during the apartheid era for approximately 2-hours before returning you back to hotel

Having deliberated long and hard about whether visiting Soweto was socially acceptable - its residents are not "on display" for tourists - we had a fantastically informative and interesting day. We had the opportunity to interact with some of the residents, and didn't feel we...More

Mmm not sure. The tour ended at 4.30 pm and everyone was at their hotels at 5 pm or so (we were staying near the airport so we arrived to the hotel at 6 pm). Maybe you can do the soweto part of the tour and the lunch
