There are many tours to Soweto, covering the same sights in large groups. Eenblond TOURS do things completely different. We believe in making travellers out of tourists, and prefer to share current day Soweto, let you experience life as it is lived today and meet some regular local people without ignoring the importance of past events. Your guide is well known and loved in Soweto, and also use 2 local guides to give you a more varied experience. Eenblond TOURS also supports the communities we travel in, and will take you to the NGO we support in Soweto. Furthermore we support at least 8 entrepreneurs on tour, making sure your tour fee is shared with the community. We do not support poverty tourism. Book now if you don't want a rushed experience in a bus full of tourists, but rather spend a warm, immersive day in a very interesting and friendly city. We would love to share Soweto with you over some drinks, walking and lots of chatting. Admission fees and a traditional lunch included.

Why the travelers book this tour because Soweto represents the hard-fought struggle against apartheid. We look beyond the bloody legend of the 16 June 1976 uprising and behind the hardened face of resistance politics, to the core Soweto- its people. Soweto is about people leading their lives - working and commuting, celebrating and grieving, see the poverty of an informal settlement shack and hostels in contrast with upper class suburbs of Diepkloof in Soweto. this tour promises a warm experience of this fascinating place.
