Really nice guy! He knows everything about Soweto ! Don't hesitate to ask questions. I really recommand him. Delicious meal also. Just take money for the entrance of Mandela house, it's really cheap though.

Sibusiso was great: accommodating of my schedule, very personable, and knows his stuff. The highlight was sampling beers w/ him at the Soweto Brewery. Recommended.

This was my best experience while doing a 3 week stay in South Africa. Sibusisu was very knowledgeable about the history of Soweto and all of its aspects. I left feeling like an expert on the subject. Not only was this very educational but it also truly was an unique experience, we tried local foods and at the end of the day we went for a drink with the locals in a place I would never have been able to go without him. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in being a part of the community for a day.
