A customer-focused and easy to work with professional guide, Siphiwe and his partner Zizi make a powerful partnership. Siphiwe is very professional and seeks to provide the best possible experience through his experiences, love of community, and knowledge. His facilitated every part of the guide (Soweto half-day tour) through planning and the personal relationships he's developed with his community. Call him, set a date, and let him do his thing--you will not be disappointed. I look forward to doing this again soon, only with Siphiwe.

We had an amazing private tour with Siphwie, his knowledge and passion is fascinating and he was able to answer all our questions! Since he is from Soweto we also took a walk in his neighborhood and got a real life experience of life in Soweto today. Don’t waste your time with the big operators!! Support the local community and learn the reality. You will not be disappointed with Siphwie! Thank you so much and we wish you all the success for you and SA.

We had a personal experience with Shipiwe he was so good and so informative about Soweto and what made it personal and special that he lives within the community with his family and we visited his house! Don’t go with the big tour operators, stick with local and support the community!

We had a rental car so took the sell-drive tour of Soweto for half a day (2pm to 5pm in fact) We met Siphiwe at the Apartheid Museum and he then toured us around lots of SOWETO and from minute one gave us lots of fascinating knowledge and insight.

A really enjoyable and eye-opening tour. Siphiwe is an excellent tour guide and his approach to ensuring you get a feel for the real life within SOWETO is unique, especially compared to the many other larger operators who can't offer this level of authenticity. If you want a genuine feel for life in SOWETO then this is the tour for you.

Sephiwe was a great tour guide around Soweto, he kept in touch beforehand and met us on time.. The tour was very informative and took us around many different areas, giving us a nice mix between driving and walking. We felt both welcomed and safe.
