          A delightful day spent on safari
          An excellent day spent on safari. Polite driver and an engaging tour guide. Petros made the safari enjoyable and we were delighted to see a good range of animals close up. He took time to not also speak about the animals, but also about the plants and trees. Information and communication prior to the safari was very good also.

          A great trip to Petoria
          I was so happy to be with a female guide. She was superb and took me around places. She was well versed with the History and told me complete details. Highly recommended.

          Tailored experience. Very adaptable guide.
          Guide very kindly adapted the tour for me as I had already been to Constitution Hill. We went to Museum Africa instead which was very interesting. The rest of the tour was conducted as advertised and we took in other parts of the city. Very pleased about the guides willingness to tailor the tour to my needs.

          A Diamond of a Tour
          We found this through Google and can say it was great. We were collected by Tahbong who was informative throughout the day. We visited the Diamond Mines at Cullinan first which was fascinating. Moving then to The Voortrekker monument which celebrated the trek from Cape Down to Pretoria of the Dutch trying to escape English ruling. The monument was something to behold and Tahbong our guide told us of the blood river war with the native Zulu tribe. We had quick bite to eat at the lovely cafe there before heading into Pretoria. Next stop was Paul Kruger house museum followed by going to the Union Building Gardens where we saw the giant Nelson Mandela statue. Our guide has tended to our needs and wishes all day and been thoroughly knowledgeable. He has pointed buildings and landmarks out and has been a fountain of not just facts but stories. Would highly recommend

          Amazing tour through Soweto
          It was a wonderful and insightful experience. Our guide, Byron, did an amazing job to show us his hometown. We had several stops on our tour to get an excellent impression about the culture and history of Soweto.

          Good but could be better
          Would’ve liked a deeper tour than just being walked to a shop to buy a beer. We did get to try cow head with the locals though, which was good.

          Many animals and a great guide
          A Great safari with many sightings, even a snake on the road. Beards of elephants and many other animals, often near the road. We had a knowledgeable and funny guide/driver, always on the lookout for sightings.

          A wholesome experience!
          It was a beautiful experience. Everything ran smoothly from the morning pick up to the evening drop off. The drivers were very friendly and accommodating. The landscape is absolutely gorgeous and the rangers are very well informed, we got to see 3 of the big 5 animals up close on the safari and learn more about the animals. It was absolutely lovely! Thank you.

        The best part about our day tour was our guide. He was joyful, knowledgeable, professional and happy! The company was safe, reliable and honest. Our guide also played my favorite South African music, Amapiano for us during the ride. He is from the Soweto area and shared information about his tribe.

        We did the night tour of Soweto starting before sunset and moving on to a few shebeens (places serving alcohol), including dinner and 4 drinks. I'm sure they are all great but our guide, Thsolo, was top notch. He shared history and answered all our questions effortlessly. We interrupted him a lot to ask more questions during the drive and it didn’t phase him at all. We shared about ourselves and compared cultural norms and traditions. It felt like visiting a friend and being shown around by them. The museums are closed at night, but we still stopped by and looked in Mandela House and drove past Archbishop Tutu's house and felt with got the history story and the current vibe of part of Soweto. We got everything we expected and more. We only had one free night in Johannesburg and I am so happy that we chose this tour over other options.
