| SOWETO TOURS
Take a tour in a taxi you are welcomed by your smiling taxi driver in soweto and tour guide as well as the lure of a cooler box packed full of beer, ciders, coolers, cold dinks and waters. Perhaps a Red Bull to get into the right frame of mind. On the way a little history lesson on Soweto and its origins as well as pumping Soweto taxi style beats and the sound of the Vuvuzela randomly trumpeting towards the soweto venue.
