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

Extend your 1-day or 2-day hop on, hop off red bus ticket with a live guided tour to Soweto in a minibus taxi plus a FREE walking tour.

Fantastic!

We are so glad that we booked this tour! We completed the Soweto add on and it was fantastic! We tend to do these tours when we go on a city break as you get an idea of location but also get to Lear about the city. I can’t tell people enough that the Soweto tour was FANTASTIC!

Amazing tour!

The Johannesburg red tour was awesome. I got to know a great deal about the city of Gold and its people. The see the city from the top of the Carlton Center was very nice as well. The Soweto tour is a must on your list. The Apartheid Museum, Nelson Mandela House, Carlton Center, Gold Reef Hotel, and Soweto tours should be a must on your visit to Joburg.
