Enjoy a live-guided tour of Soweto plus a FREE walking tour

No visit to the city of Johannesburg is complete without a trip into its largest and most vibrant township, Soweto. It is home to more than 1.2-million people and the place where some of South Africa’s most significant historical events occurred.

There are several stops along the route and when the trip is complete it becomes clear how each stop ties into the theme of freedom, and how through the sacrifices of many of Soweto’s inhabitants, the struggle against apartheid was won.

Highlights of the Soweto tour

  • FNB Stadium (known as Soccer City during the 2010 FIFA World Cup), the biggest stadium in Africa, is built in the form of a calabash or a Zulu clay pot

  • Diepkloof, a diverse neighbourhood

  • Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, built during the Second World War and the largest hospital in the world

  • Bara Taxi Rank, the largest taxi rank in Johannesburg

  • Orlando Towers, a colourful landmark popular for bungee and base jumping and abseiling

  • Orlando Stadium, the first ever sports facility built for black South Africans in a residential area

  • Hector Pietersen Memorial in Orlando West

  • Vilakazi Street, the only street in the world in which two Nobel Prize winners have lived

  • Kliptown Open Air Museum in Walter Sisulu Square

Great time on the tour!

We had a great time on our tour! Not all stops are that thrilling but its a nice and safe way to see Jhb. The Sowetoo tour was so entertaining, loved the guides. Mbali our guide and Themba our driver were awesome. So funny and educational as well. The Orlando towers were fun for bungee jumping. Get the video done, its awesome and you wont regret it one bit. Trust me. If you have the time (unlike us) do the 2 day.

Great experience!

We really enjoyed this tour. We did it with overseas visitors and our four small kids. It was great for the whole family and a great way to see the entire city--even parts I'd never been to after living here for 18 years! I learned a lot on the tour and it was well done.
