This is my second time booking Township Travel. I had such a good time and memorable experience with Siphwe, I booked him again. Township Travel offers several package deals include township tours and safaris. The pandemic didn't stop me from enjoying myself. Siphwe picked me up at the hotel, and took me on Alexandria Township tour. Siphwe gave me insight to life in township which is similar to my childhood years living at Washington Oaks and Cedar Creek in Sanford. Day number two, I enjoyed a full day on the safari. Siphwe is well knowledge and he always have something new, even for return clients such as myself. Thank you Siphwe again. All the best.

A Unique and Eye Opening Experience!
Highly recommended! We just finished up a tour and it was incredibly eye opening. We had the unique opportunity to see what life is like in Soweto (including going into some of the neighbourhoods and speaking with the residents) and other parts of Johannesburg. This team has a lot of knowledge and they also work with volunteer tour guides at various locations throughout Soweto. We will definitely be recommending this to other visitors of this city!

Very professional, great experience!
Aug 2019
Siphiwe met us at the hotel with his driver at the time agreed and we started our afternoon tour of Johannesburg and Soweto listening to his very interesting explanations about history of South Africa, apartheid, post apartheid, culture and traditions. Siphiwe has a wide knowledge of his Country and he shared it with us in a very pleasant and professional way. We visited the Apartheid Museum, Nelson Mandela's house and of course Soweto. It was a very touching experience for us to meet the locals and for our son to play with children just outside their houses in the township. We always felt very safe and comfortable.
Siphiwe is doing a great job: he believes in the potential of the disadvantaged youth of Soweto and he gives the chance to trained people to work as guides with tourists. During our tour we met two collaborators of Siphiwe, it was really interesting to listen to explanations from the real locals.
I highly reccomend a tour with Township Travel !
