Great tourguide made up for closedown of some of the attractions

We loved our tourguide and his knowledge about the history of Johannesburg, Soweto and Apartheid. Nonetheless we would have loved to the the Apartheidmuseum and the Top of Africa which were still closed (COVID-19). If these are of great importance, check whether they will have reopened prior to your tour. Our guide really made up for their closures by showing us Soweto even more intensively.
