Full description
Johannesburg, Soweto and the Apartheid Museum are the perfect destinations for learning about the City of Gold. Start the day by visiting key landmarks in Johannesburg city, starting with Constitutional Hill where you will learn about apartheid prisoners. Then, head deep into the city, driving through the tall buildings, most of them built during the gold rush period. The next stop will be Top of Africa where you can see the city from above and take photos. The Apartheid Museum tour is the next stop as you dig deeper into the dark apartheid history of South Africa. This will be a 3-hour tour of the museum before heading into Soweto township. On arrival, you visit Mandela House Museum and get a 30-minute guided tour into his former house before he was sent to prison. The Hector Pieterson Museum will give you some inspiration on the language resistance uprising of 1976. Next, will be a quick drive to the Regina Mundi Church to discover the importance during the apartheid era. Finally, drive by Orlando Towers and the World Cup Stadium to finish the tour.

It was a long busy day since we packed a lot into one day in this tour but we still managed to spend enough time and appreciate the deep and complex history of Johannesburg. Would have liked more time at the Apartheid Museum but considering how much we were trying to do in one day, it’s understandable we could not. The tour guide patiently explained and answered a lot of questions. The driver was very safety conscious.

Cette visite est vraiment à programmer dans votre séjour. Nous vous la recommandons. Notre guide était très sympathique, intéressant et a su s'adapter au timing. Nous avons pu avoir bcp d'explications et les étapes de visite ont été très bien rythmées et pensées. Notre guide est venu nous chercher à l'hôtel : un vrai plus ! A faire !

Experiência boa! Só não foi fantástica porque não deu para visitar o Museu do Apartheid e o outro museu que não me lembro porque não nos avisaram que estão fechados à segunda-feira! Muita pena mesmo! O nosso vôo chegou atrasado, a guia estava no hotel à nossa espera e teve a bondade de nos ir buscar ao aeroporto!
