Soweto - an authentic, true & bespoke day with locals

By far the most unique and authentic tour on offer in Soweto, covered often in local media. Many Soweto tours are covering the same sights in large groups. Eenblond TOURS do things completely different. We believe in making travellers out of tourists, and prefer to share current day Soweto, let you experience life as it is lived today and meet some regular local people without ignoring the importance of past events. Your guide is well known and loved in Soweto, and also use 2 or 3 local guides to give you a more varied experience. I support local communities via my NGO, also entrepreneurs. More than 50% of your tour price goes back to the community. I don't support poverty tourism. Book now if you don't want a rushed experience in a bus full of tourists, but rather spend a warm, immersive day in a very interesting and friendly city. We would love to share Soweto with you over drinks, walking and lots of chatting. Local guides, transfers, admission fees and traditional lunch included.
