      Ultimate Johannesburg Tour - Stephenson Adventures
      This was the most informative tour I have ever been on. Our tour guide, Banele was truly amazing. His passion for his city and willingness to share share his knowledge was awesome! We learned so much and he answered all of our questions. What a way to start our adventure in South Africa!!

      Splendid experience! Highly recommend if you have a day and want a overview of J’Burg.
      The accommodation was amazing. We decided to spend the few extra bucks to do a private tour and it was completely worth it.

      Insight into authentic SA culture
      Great trip to lesedi cultural village. An amazing introduction to the native tribes and some of their traditions. My guide Mo picked me up at my hotel where he also delivered me back😀 he gave me a great insight into SA during our drive and made me feel welcomed

      Awesome… won’t be disappointed!!! First class!
      We had an amazing trip! Traveled with my 79 year old mom and this company is first class and everything was perfect. Highly recommended. Great staff, knowledgeable, attentive, felt very safe and very educational. I also hired them to pick us up at the airport and take us back. There were on time, helped with bags and very good vehicles and safe driving! Also their communication via email and also WhatsApp was always returned very timely. Again definitely give them your business! You will not be dissatisfied! One of the best oversees companies I have used on my travel! Thanks again for an unbelievable trip!

      A1 Tour Experience
      My husband and I recently went on the 'Ultimate Johannesburg Tour' led by the exceptional guide, Banele. We had a really wonderful experience. Throughout the day, Banele shared profound insights into Johannesburg and its rich history, keeping us captivated with his wealth of knowledge. We left the tour feeling enlightened and inspired. Without a doubt, we highly recommend this tour to anyone eager to delve deep into the heart of Johannesburg's story."

      Pretoria exposed
      I so loved the Joberg & Soweto tour I booked a tour with this company again. I was fortunate to get Tsholo again on a private tour and we explored Pretoria. This was the story before the creation of Joberg and it pulled the day before history together. I was 100% in great hands and listened to the amazing story of how two republics became South Africa.

      Memories to last a lifetime.
      What a well run and extremely informative tour. Our guide Tsholo made sure we understood the symbolism behind each piece of both johannsberg and Soweto. The pace was perfect and included lunch was delicious! Soweto experienced is one I’ll remember for a lifetime. Couldn’t recommend this company more.

      Amazing, Must-do tour of Johannesburg
      My wife and I were lucky enough to have done a tour in April 2024 with Mo and it was a fantastic experience. It was of course, a very comfortable, smooth trip, we were very well looked after. Mo was totally comprehensive, and gave us a good sense of this amazing city. Mo was charastmatic, and deeply knowledgeable and considered. He had an acute understanding of profound topics involving the city, history, politics, and sociology. He was very approachable, and passionate in sharing his knowledge which is exactly what you want when you want to get to know the deeper parts of a city. It was a very refreshing experience, and fantastic to do with someone from the area like Mo. Honestly a must-do experience for any trip to South Africa, it was eye-opening and critical I think to be able to better understand the city and country. You will be sorely missing this tour if you decide to not visit Johannesburg, and see only other cities. An amazing guide, tour, and of course such a pleasure see this extrodinary city!

      Thank you Stephenson Adventures!
      We had two days off during a work trip to South Africa and wanted to make the most of them. Stephenson Adventures helped us to do just that! We did a one day Joburg and Soweto Tour and a one day Pilanesberg Safari. Both were amazing days. We learned and experienced so much and our guides were both knowledgeable, professional, and fun. I will definitely call on Stephenson Adventures again!

      A Packed Day Seeing Johannesburg
      Our guide, Banele, picked up on time at our hotel in Johannesburg. We are a family of 4, 2 in our 50’s and 2 in our 20’s. We were the only ones on our tour in a clean van. Our 21-year-old was not thrilled at the thought of a full day tour, but even she felt like it was a great day learning about Nelson Mandela and Apartheid and seeing the city. Our guide was so knowledgeable and was a great driver even when negotiating heavy traffic without stoplights working at times. We always felt completely safe with him. He told us about the history of Joburg as we drove and gave us an overview before each stop. He took care of getting all the entry tickets. We had separate site guides at the Old Fort Jail and the Mandela House in Soweto. Banele walked us through the low-class part of Soweto, and we again felt completely safe. He had lived there previously and knew the people there. Getting to step inside a woman’s tiny home was a highlight of the day. Banele was very organized and was always waiting for us right where he said he would be when we he gave us time to explore at our own pace at a couple of stops. He spoke excellent English and was easy to understand. He also took us to a nice local restaurant that served an African cuisine buffet which we enjoyed (at your own cost). Banele did not volunteer his life story to us but when we asked questions, it was so inspiring to hear his story. We felt like seeing the good and bad parts of the city and learning more about the history of Nelson Mandela and the history of Apartheid were very important in making a visit to South Africa. We also saw how we all have the same hopes and dreams for our children even when we live in very different. circumstances. We highly recommend others spend a day on this tour!

      Best way to see Johannesburg
      If you want to learn about the rich history of the area and the current day lifestyle, do this tour. Very eye opening. Your guide is like talking to a history teacher. They take you places other tours don't go. Highly recommended if you really want to know Johannesburg.

      A must do in Johannesburg
      A really memorable day in Johannesburg with this local company. Our guide Tsholo arrived on time and greeted and introduced himself to our party of four. Straight away you could see he was a very friendly guy, neat and tidy and the vehicle was immaculate. We done the Joburg and Soweto tour which was an all day tour with quite a few stops and all the time Tsholo was very passinate with his work and his country. He is very informative, humerous and very knowledgeable about the history, both poitical and industrial in the area. The highlight for us was the opportunity to have a short guided tour of one of Soweto's large poor shanty towns. The guide here was a 20 year old young man who explained how they live in these places awaiting an opportunity to be rehoused in a proper dwelling. He also was very friendly and proud of his heritage. To be able to have this rare opportunity of the tour Stephensons company donates a percentage of the cost of our tour ticket to this community to aid in schooling for these children. Cold water provided all day as well. We were taken to a local restaurant for lunch, which also was very good. We would highly recommend this company for any tours or shuttle services they provide. It isn't a big company and if the rest of the staff are like Tsholo you can't possibly have a bad experience. Garry from Austalia

    The perfect getaway from all the noise and busyness of the inner city. The tour was very insightful and mind blowing, the Guide knew exactly what he was doing and had good expertise of the area and all the hotspots, which made it possible for us to get to see the big 5. The Waves waterpark is a very beautiful place, I would like to revisit that place again. Great tour.

    Highly recommended tour. Safari was a great introduction to the South African animals. Ranger (Nico) was very knowledgeable about the animals and their behavior. Sun City was a blast. Steve is a fantastic guide, very informative about South Africa history, places and people. Love his enthusiasm. I will definitely book another tour with him.

    This trip was a very good value for the money. We had a private diver and escort (Banele was absolutely amazing! You should request him if at all possible!) who picked us up from our hotel. It was about a two hour and 15 minute drive out to the Pilanesberg national park. We saw many animals (but no lions) and had an elephant follow our safari jeep for part of the way towards the end of the safari. We then went to Sun City which was a little generic but we had a good time a the water park and casino. A very good day overall and you definitely get your money's worth!

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐If I could give 6 stars I would do so. This was such an amazing experience for my 1st time in Africa. Stephenson was very accommodating and patient. The Tour was everything I wanted and more. His driving, vehicle and amenities were 1st class. Stephenson was pleasant to be around and had great conversation. Very informative of the culture and where we were riding. I can't wait to experience his other tours/packages. I'll refer him over and over to anybody traveling to Africa.

    The trip was so amazing, we enjoyed game drive more than we have ever done, we managed to spot most of the Big 5 within 3 hours at Pilanesberg. The drive to Suncity was also interesting and the trip was fully well planned, Stephen is very professional and knows South African history exceptionally well.
