Soweto & Gold Reef City & Apartheid Museum Tour Details
Soweto tour makes a perfect combination with Gold Reef City and Apartheid museum tour. Post the 1994 Democratic Elections, Soweto has become a place of vibrancy, friendship and contrast.
In Soweto the guided tour will take you through key Tourist attractions. We do the tour of Hector Pieterson Memorial museum to learn more about Soweto Student Uprisings. The tour proceed to Vilakazi Street where Mandela and Arch bishop Emeritus Tutu’s Houses are situated .
Gold reef City is one of Johannesburg’s most popular attractions for Tourists and locals alike.
At Gold Reef City you will be taken on a guided tour, through the surface of the museum, travel down the Mine Shaft; view the Gold Reef that gave birth to Johannesburg and see how real Gold is poured into barrels. Gold Reef City is actually a Life Museum of a Victorian Architecture depicting the story of Gold.
The museum is dedicated to gold mining. With its Victorian houses and geological displays, Gold reef City offers many fascinating insights into life in Johannesburg long before the technological age.
In the centre of Gold Reef City stands Shaft No 14, opened in 1887 and closed after 84 years of operation in 1971.
At Apartheid museum you do the tour of a series of 22 individual exhibitions (A dramatic emotional journey of racial discrimination) and Mandela’s exhibition. For anyone wanting to understand and experience what Apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to Apartheid museum is fundamental. The museum is a beacon of hope showing the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own. The museum narratives are presented through dramatic visual wall display, supported by film displays of original artefacts. A tour to the apartheid museum is a must for any visitor, who wants to understand the history of Apartheid.
