Soweto tour success comes to Taste of Africa guides.
Nettie and I have driven the Passport to Soweto initiative since March 2017, a radical change in what the visitor to Soweto would experience, the must do museums no longer.
We have learnt daily, as we drive the hidden South African history, the history that resides in many of the Township elders.
Change is difficult for all of us to accept, and our guides are no different, on many a day, the guide carried instruction to visit one of the Heritage Value Site, the participant waited, we contributed, but always an excuse why they never reached the site.
Yesterday we had two Italian groups in Soweto, 14 sleeping overnight, 16 arriving in the morning, and Cedric was booked to host a Swedish family of 3.
Logistically, the guides were unable to avoid my directions.
The energy in and outside of Heritage Value Site 3, bubbles for 3 hours.
When the dust has settled, I text guide Stanley to enquire, and his report confirms our belief with regard to the direction we are going:
Hi Stanley, how did the visitors react to the Mahapa visit?
That’s what they want. Thank you Ced to introduce such a wonderful tour to our visitors.
I don’t really know what to say about what you are doing to our visitors, cause this is an amazing experience to them.
Could we ask for a better stamp of approval?
Cedric and Nettie de la Harpe
