So disappointing!

We were put together with another tour that was to include part of the city of Johannesburg and the Apartheid Museum. We had chosen to spend the morning in Soweto, the real Soweto, which was to involve time talking to people who live there, and time to walk Vilikasi Street. After being picked up 1/2 hour late, we didn't get out of Johannesburg until after noon, we never walked on Vilikasi St. and we were given less than 20 minutes to race through th informal settlement and meet the people there - no better than an uncomfortable photo op! When I complained to Viator their answer was to offer my a $25. voucher, rather than having our back when one of their local contractors fails so badly. I will not be using them again.

Hello Bev, Thankyou for your feedback. As mentioned previously we reserve the right to add you to another group. You did not book a private tour. The apartheid museum part of the tour was only going to be done after the Soweto tour. Sometimes traffic will play a part in our tour timings which is something beyond our control.

We really appreciated the experience of being able to do this tour. It was very moving, and hard to describe adequately. Our tour guides were great, and we felt safe through the tour.
