The Tour De Orlando experience exceeded my expectations! It actually felt like we were literally cruising around Orlando with our brother, our guide Lebogang is friendly and well-informed about the history of Soweto. Highly recommend this experience, you won’t regret its worth every penny.

We had a great tour around Soweto, and accompanied by a humble great story teller as our tour guide. It was a nice immersive experience, and the guide was very passionate about what he does.

I made the soweto tour with Lebo and it was very nice. He's a good person who knows soweto streets and history by hear and the most beautiful thing is his passion for its people and job.

Amazing visit of Soweto during which we learned so much about the history of the neighbourhood from someone who has been living there for his entire life. We felt very safe throughout the tour and learned so much information, that, although isn’t fun —it relates to Apartheid which was a very difficult era for black South Africans— needs to be known. The tour helped us understand how life was for the people of Soweto during Apartheid and therefore understand the scar tissue that they live with up to now. That part was very emotional. Our guide, Lebo aka Rambo, also made sure to show us how creative and resilient Sowetans are, to have us try some food staples of the region and to bring us to see ways and places in which they are developing these days. The tour was unlike any other tour we’ve taken before. Much longer, more insight, more stories. And it was, simply awesome.

What an incredible tour and hosts! My partner and I had an enjoyable first day in South Africa and Soweto, getting to know the history of Soweto and the wonderful cultural place it is today! Never a dull moment with plenty of laughs along the way. Would highly recommend this tour and One Day In Soweto tours!
