Ce vei face

We will begin by going to Vilakazi Street to experience both the historical and current happenings of Soweto. We will go to Mr. Nelson Mandela's house and Mr. Desmond Tutu's home, and also to Mrs. Winnie Madikizela Mandela's home, where I will explain how Soweto started and when and why it was built. We will visit the Shova Lifestyle store, Vilakazi Curio shop shops that have given young and old Sowetans and South Africans platform to make money trough selling crafts ,hand made handbags ,t -shirts also help you understand the making of a new history. We will go to the Hector Pieterson Museum to learn about the Soweto student uprising that became a turning point in South African history. We will then have lunch Kota ( a local delicacy .Then we take a taxi ride will pass in different location that are very important we will even stop in certain area , including one at an informal restaurant to taste local delicacies that were also a big part of the hostels and their violent history. We will then go to the Walter Sisulu Square of dedication in Kliptown the oldest part of Soweto and where the freedom charter was written (this document ended up being the basis of our constitution)
Other things to note
You may have read that Soweto is dangerous, but I can say that Soweto is not so bad. It's not perfect, but it is safer than many European cities. Sowetan people have "ubuntu"—a humanity toward others.

My experience as a tour guide makes me a qualified host because tourism has always been about showing hospitality through history and culture. Music, dance, and food are a very important part of South African history. People have always found that music can be their voice if the normal way of communicating is not working. I do not give you an audiobook experience of Soweto I invite you to be part of the love and humanity Soweto is . I am fortunate enough to have been born in Soweto—the home of our freedom charter but most of all allow you to be part of the writing of the now Sowetan history.Plus I use to be a Tour Guide in one of the greatest tour companies in Johannesburg Lebo's Soweto Back Packers.

The Soweto experience with Ntsiki was a highlight of our South Africa trip. Even though the Hector Pieterson Museum and the brewery were closed due to Covid-19, Ntsiki's incredible knowledge of the history of South Africa and her storytelling made an amazing experience. As a long-time resident of Soweto, she knows the ins and outs of the community and connected the course of history to the present day and the triumphs and struggles of Sowetans. I came back with a sense of appreciation for the courage and perseverance of generations of black South Africans.

Ntsiki is an excellent guide! I thoroughly enjoyed her tour! Ntsiki has a lot of knowledge about Soweto, South African history, and great leaders like Mandela and Tutu. Her tour is planned out very well and brings you through Soweto in a comfortable pace. This tour was a highlight for my visit here! I highly recommend it!

Ntsiki was such an amazing host I booked with her four times on my trip. Her knowledge, passion and personality are gravitating. You WILL know the real Soweto after touring with her. I felt like a Sowetan with her.

Ntsiki once again was amazing! She’s so selfless and giving. She has a wealth of knowledge and history that outweighs her petite body! I’ve gained a lifelong friend in her and met some amazing people along the way! She has and attracts such positive auras…I can’t wait to spend one more day with her before my return to the US! She will definitely be one I connect with when I return to South Africa!

This was an amazing experience! Ntsiki was one of the best guides I’ve ever ran across. She speaks with so much South African pride or should I say Sowetan pride and her knowledge is unimaginable especially for her age! I would recommend anyone looking to see the real Soweto and to hear the truth then do yourself the favor and arrange her as your tour guide!
