        Nice Family Centric Tour
        Shane was an excellent guide, was very planned and tailor made the trip considering our kids age. Had a nice banter about cricket and learnt about South Africa culture in a short period of time.

        Great tour around Johannesburg
        We've travelled to SA with my husband this March and had a very good time. Johannesburg was an interesting city and we've enjoyed our tour with Shane! Shane is a very knowledgeable guy! I would recommend the tour. The city itself is not safe, so I would definitely go with a person that knows the place very well!

        Great Guy Gouldie
        Booked this tour which unfortunately fell on a holiday. Instead Shane turned it around and showed us all the places around Pretoria that a tourist wont go - golf clubs, coffee shops, university campus. Really got to see the other side of the city. And he is a Great guy to talk to. Knows his stuff. We spent a few hours talking about random things such as cricket, coffee, beer, immigration, US politics and what not. Had a lovely time Shane. My mom and I agree on that and we would love to meet you again sometimes. Cheers!

        Excellent time with Shane
        Shane is an excellent tour guide. He is knowledgeable of the history of SA and we were able to learn a lot . He is easy to converse with and he makes you feel relaxed and at home. The tour package was very reasonable money wise and was very good. We ended the day eating dinner at a great restaurant and had a relaxing ride home.

        One more unforgettable day in South Africa
        Traveling by bike through the forest with Shane was an incredible adventure. The forests of South Africa are full of scenic landscapes, and the soft dirt trails are perfect for biking. Shane proved to be an excellent companion – he had a good sense of direction and kept our spirits high throughout the journey. One of the most memorable moments was the amazing feeling of unity with nature when we stopped to enjoy the silence of the forest and the birdsong. Thank you, Shane for an incredible Journey!!!

        Excellent tour with a brilliant guide
        This was a fantastic tour which was made extra great by Shane who is a really nice guy and gives great insight into the history, the location and SA in general. I and the group had a great chat with Shane and it made the day. In regards to the location itself, Pretoria is definitely worth seeing. It may be lesser seen than Jo’burg but in my opinion, it is essential to visit the capital city and Shane’s your really brought it to life. Thank you mate!

        Day Tour of Johannesburg
        This is an amazing tour if you’d like to learn more about Johannesburg and South Africa in general. The combination of apartheid museum, Soweto and South Africa’s gold mining history, gives you an in depth understanding of the recent history of this fascinating country. One of the few places in the world where you can actually go underground into an old gold mine and even more fascinating as you can see the technology which has been used to maintain the mine and extract and convert the extracted raw material into gold. Shane, your guide, is fun to be with and has deep knowledge about the country and its history. Definitely recommended!

        An amazing tour with a great view
        Really enjoyed my experience with Shane. He was punctual and communicated regularly to keep me updated pre tour on what was going on. Shane was very informative and had a plethora of stories to share about his life experiences. Safety was forefront of the trip and the accommodation and views were spectacular. Overall I would highly recommend this tour company as it caters for individuals and small groups and offers unique and fulfilling experiences!!

        An abundance of wildlife up close and personal
        This was such an incredible experience. I learned so much about the wildlife in South Africa and was so delighted that we were able to get so close to them. Especially the giraffes and the zebras! Shane really knows his way around these parts and was such a wonderful guide. He really caters to what you want.....like for instance I was hoping to have a coffee before the hike and boy did he deliver! We went to a local spot all the cyclists go to. It was such a cool place. Then off to our bushwalking adventure. After a bit of tracking we spotted the giraffe then slowly (and quietly) made our way toward them. What an amazing experience to be so close to them! Then we came across a dozen or so zebra and many different types of antelope (springbok, impala, and others I don't remember the names of). Continuing, we followed some of the mountain bike trails seeing all the different animal prints in the mud. There is such an abudance of wildlife in these parts! Later we had lunch on the river in a beautiful restaurant with wonderful food before ending our hiking adventure. You will not regret time spent with Shane on his tours. I am already planning more adventures with him when I return. Thank you Shane!

      We spent around 3 hours on fine trails inside the reserve with great views of a ton of different animals, e.g. zebra, giraffe and sable antelope. The bikes were excellent. Shane is reliable, super friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was definitely the highlight of my 7 days in Pretoria. Thanks, Shane!!!
