There are many sites in Soweto of historical significance that may fancy the visitor. The itinerary for your guided tour may include the following.

Regina Mundi in Rockville, Soweto
This is the biggest church in Soweto. During the apartheid years the church had become a refuge for local activists. It was a common site of political meetings and strategic plannic against the oppresive system of the day. Today it is visited by tourists from all over the world.

Hecter Peterson Memorial
On June 16, 1976, a group of school children in Soweto marched to protest the use of Afrikaans as the primary language of education in Bantu (or black) schools. The march turned nasty quickly. When police started firing into the youthful crowd, the first person of many to die was young Hector Peterson. He fell a few feet from where the momorial is built.

Vilakazi Street in Orlando West, Soweto
This street is unique in that no other place in the world do you find a street where two Nobel Prize Laureates lived on the same street. These were Nelson Mandela and archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Cost        : R400 per person.
Duration : Half Day (can be adjusted)
