One of the most popular tours in Gauteng is the Soweto day tour. There are many things to do in Soweto. A tour guide will pick you up and set off to various very popular tourist attractions first thing in the morning.

The South African Freedom Charter is a statement of the core principles of the South African Congress Alliance. On 26 June 1955, the charter was adopted at a Congress in Kliptown. This is the first stop on our tour through Soweto. Best rates and prices.

Regina Mundi Church was designed by Anthony Noel Errol Slaven. It is the largest Roman Catholic church in South Africa. Paintings such as “The Black Madonna” aren’t the only interesting things to see at the church. During the Soweto uprising in 1976, many fled to the church as they were being shot at by the police. Some damage caused by the bullets is still evident in the building. Many iconic people, such as Michelle Obama, have been to Regina Mundi Church.

On Soweto tours, you will have an opportunity to see the Orlando Tower Jump, one of the main things to do in Johannesburg. If you are looking for a real adrenaline rush you can bungee jump from 33 stories high. The towers were once a power station, but has since become a popular tourist attraction in Johannesburg.

Soccer City, or the FNB Stadium, is an impressive architectural site in Nasrec on the border of Soweto. This is home ground to the Kaizer Chiefs Football Club and is also the place where Nelson Mandela delivered his first public speech after being released from prison.

Vilakazi Street, one of the best-known attractions in Gauteng, was once home to former president Nelson Mandela and is one of the most famous streets in South Africa. In 1993 Madiba was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. Archbishop Desmond Tutu also resides in Vilakazi Street and became a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1984. The tour guide who will accompany you on the Soweto tour, will inform you about who the influential men, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, are and what they achieved. Having two Nobel Prize winners as residents is not the only thing which makes Vilakazi Street significant. Youth Day is celebrated on 16 June annually. It marks the day of the student uprisings in 1976. During the student uprisings, 12-year-old Hector Pieterson died when police shot him. A photograph of Pieterson’s sister running next to a man with the young boy in his arms can be seen at the memorial. Those who have an interest in the political history of South Africa and the many diverse cultures, will appreciate what Soweto has to offer. Soweto is the south-western township bordering Johannesburg. A trip to this city is the perfect opportunity to try the local cuisine – it is sure to be an exciting cultural experience for all.

There are many things to do in Soweto.

Another interesting tourist attraction in Soweto the Nelson Mandela House – also in Vilakazi street. The late Madiba’s house was transformed into a museum by his ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela Mandela and in 1999 it was declared a national heritage site. Today it is a must-see site which attracts tourists from around the globe. There are many personal belongings and photographs in the home too. Don’t miss your chance to get an inside look at Madiba’s life.

The last stop of this day tour is the Apartheid Museum. Here you will get a better idea of what life was like for different racial groups during the Apartheid era in South Africa.
