          Great Tour
          Five Star Tour! The tour was very thorough and the tour guide, MK, was fun, high energy, accommodating, patient, and highly informative. We got the "real" tour of Johannesburg and Soweto.

          Please don’t miss this one
          It was a fascinating experience to understand the work of the research centre and that the animals are released into the wild to start their own families. It was amazing to see the cheetahs at so close proximity - their beauty is sublime. The staff are very brave in the way they get so close to wild animals and it was a huge privilege to be in their midst. An amazing experience.

          Good, inexpensive, enjoyable, easy way to see the Cradle of Humankind
          Excellent tour. All very simple and no frills, with a great price to match. We had a good car and careful driver who was helpful and informative. The focus of the tour, the Cradle of Humankind, was well worth seeing. We were very happy with what we got and the price we got it for.

          Great experience with MK
          Really fun especially the local culinary hot spot Kwai Mai Mai (spelling?). MK was really flexible tailoring our experience to what we wanted. 5 stars!

          Do not use TripAdvisor!
          TripAdvisor did not inform us that the caves were closed but still charged us a lot of money which is a disgrace! TripAdvisor said the tour will be an average of 6 hours long which includes visiting Maropeng and Sterkfontein caves but it was only 2 hours long since the caves are closed for a long time now. The tour guide and Virgio tours was excellent, they were the ones that informed us about all the changes when they picked us up and they tried to make the short trip worthwhile. We learn from our mistakes and I will inform everyone I know to never use TripAdvisor again and just go straight to Virgio tours. TripAdvisor is deceiving you with the wrong information. In TripAdvisor’s review fraud it states: “Any attempts to mislead, influence or impersonate a traveler is considered fraudulent, and is subject to penalties. This may include but is not limited to: Attempts by an owner or agent of a property to boost the reputation of a business” Yet TripAdvisor misleads the customers with information to ensure a booking through them. very disappointed, incorrect and clearly outdated information on TripAdvisor’s site.

          Horrible
          Driver was arrogant. Expected a tip. Kept complaining out how he doesn’t get ripped by “black people”. Didn’t care how we reviewed him “give me a low rating it’s fine” Twas also more like a quiz than a tour. Save your money. Also for $400 you’d expect a van/4x4 for a private safari drive. NOPE. You get a broken down corolla to drive around gravel in. A joke

          Bad experience, cancelled tour half hour before begins
          Very bad experience. Virgio Tours cancelled the tour only half an hour before the tour begins. My reservation was accepted and confirmed a day before the cancellation. I was sitting in the hotel lobby, wasted over an hour before finding out.

          Really beautiful
          Oh my gosh. What a fabulous overnight and tour. We stayed in the tents, Lydia cooked a wonderful meal for us, a beer by the fire- joyous! They have just revamped the whole lodge, it's right next to the Anne vanDyk park for the cheetah tours, the tent area is fabulous and the lodge is really welcoming. We'll be back!

        2-2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg. Was able to see 2 of the Big 5. Tour guide MK was fun and knowledgeable on hunting and other matters.

        Was a good experience all in all. Would recommend to others who are staying in Johannesburg to visit Pilanesburg national park.

        Note: The listing states free lunch and ride on open Cab. These were not provided.

        I had the opportunity to make this tour in september, and the experience was far beyond my expectations.
        The guide Mkateko Maluleke couldn't be more friendly and helpful.
        Explained me everything that I should expect from the tour. Told me stories about the places that we were passing through our way to Pilanesberg, and the most important: He picked me up on time! There wasn't 1 minute of delay.
        As a world traveler, I totally recommend taking this or any of the other tours thar Virgio Tours offer.
        If you need more tips about their service, I'll be glad to help.

        Your tour guide makes all the difference!
        MK was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and chill and we felt completely safe going to the park and with a 2 Hour drive it was worth every bit of it. We saw so many animals got great footage and overall truly enjoyed our experience and felt like we got a good idea of what South Africa really was I would highly highly highly suggest you take this trip and ask for MK “who is usually booked” as your guide oppose others it truly made the difference.
