Your coach will drive you past African merchants of traditional medicines, a typical four-roomed dwelling, an informal settlement, affluent suburbs, a creche and an old-age home.
The other highlights of this tour include:
• Celebrity houses in a plush suburb called Beverly Hills, where Soweto's professionals live, from attorneys, doctors, journalists, teacher, social workers and musicians to sports personalities.
Drive past two former Nobel Prize winners’ previous residences; the Hector Peterson memorial; dedicated to one of the first casualties of the Soweto uprising of 16 June, 1976, when over 500 people were killed as they protested over the imposition of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in township schools, Regina Mundi Church, Freedom Square and the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, the largest hospital in the world.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Johannesburg.
