Soweto tour recommendation please

We'll be spending 2 days in Johannesburg in August and would like to have a look around Soweto for about half a day. I'm having trouble finding the sort of tour we would like to take. We want to see all the important historical landmarks in the township but not just by driving through on a coach. Unfortunately I can't do a bicycle tour due to a dodgy knee, though I can walk without problems. Can someone recommend one please, or suggest a way we could visit the important sites and basically just see what daily life is like in Soweto, maybe visit a home and a shebeen, walk around for a while - that sort of thing?

I am looking for a walking tour of Soweto, can anyone recommend any?

Can anyone recommend usizo tours they do walking tours of Soweto the guide meets you at your hotel and then you use Public transport to get to Soweto?

Any comments would be helpful as I am traveling alone. I will be in Johannesburg 25 September.

Thank you Catherine
