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.
