Visit Johannesburg and Soweto as you learn you the Apartheid resistance during this very complete tour!

After being picked up from your hotel, you'll head to Johannesburg centre to see its major monuments. You'll see the top sights from your minibus and will make a number of visits on foot. During the day, you'll visit the Regina Mundi Cathedral, the biggest Catholic church in South Africa, and Constitution Hill, where you'll see a former prison where many anti-Apartheid activists were held. You'll also stop at Soweto's two cooling towers, part of the former power station that have today been completely painted.

During this tour, you'll also see other famous monuments and places such as Vilakazi Street, Freedom Square, the Hector Pieterson Memorial, the Nelson Mandela Bridge and many others! Your guide will tell you all about the area so you can gain a better understanding of the history of both the city and South Africa (in English).

You will be dropped off at your hotel at the end of this fascinating tour!
