Mal sistema de registro, no indica que sea en ingles
No recomendable para gestionar on line, no pueden registrarte si tienes el tiket en el celula, te tienes que conseguir que alguine te lo imprima, no aparece en ninguna parte sea solo ingles (sin traducion), pese ha que te pasan audífonos, no tiene el sistema de traducción. el guai fue muy cordial y simpático.

Great experience, other than the weather being rainy that day- so it was a little cold. I’d definitely suggest the two day tour if you are going to Soweto and have the time. Buses ran promptly and the guides were hositpable and knowledgeable. Thanks!

War ganz nett
War ganz okay, leider hat der Bus selten angehalten so dass mir oft eine Gelegenheit für win schönes Foto entgangen ist. Blöd fand ich, dass man einen ausgedruckten Voucher vorlegen musste, wo doch heute jeder ein Handy hat auf das man ein papierloses Ticket laden kann...

Such a full day
I parked my rental car at the Apartheid museum and gave it a quick run before taking the first extension to Soweto. While on tour of Soweto, I got off the van and thus prolonged the tour, returning with another van. This allowed me to have nice lunch at Vilakazi street, do shopping and tour Mandela's house. I did another run of the Apartheid museum (it is realistically possible to spend 3h) and then I took the final hop-bus up to the last stop - Constitution Hill, from where I took a cab back to my car. So it depends on what you like and what you expect, but for me the tour provided plenty opportunities and I fully would have made use of the two-day program as well.

See all of the Johannesburg attractions, but the comments you hear in the headphones exaggerate. The voice says that everything is 'beautiful', but I like to decide for myself!
