This is a walking tour about the rich history of Soweto, Orlando East/West where some of the political icons stayed during Apartheid times whilst fighting against the regime. Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Bishop Tutu, Mama Winnie to name a few. The tour will also be full of photography experience where we will be stopping every once in a while to interact with the locals & get the opportunity to take some great pictures. By walking through the streets of Soweto you will also get an idea about the people's lifestyle, local music & nowadays youth culture. We will start at Hector Pietersen Museum where i will tell you about the Soweto uprising. After this we will continue on Vilakazi street where we will see houses of a few Legends. From there we will head to Orlando East to see the first formal houses of Soweto & learn more about other icons, like the the father of Soweto, and Orlando Stadium which is home to one of our Soweto football giants, the Orlando Pirates. We then take a minibus taxi where we will be having our last stop at the Orlando Towers. Lunch Included : Kota (Local burger)
