My husband and I had a day layover in Johannesburg and wanted to fit in a half day tour to learn more about the city. Wow, Johan did NOT disappoint. We learned more than I ever expected was possible in 4 hours and I felt we were able to see the entire city. Johan is a gifted storyteller and has spent his entire life in Capetown and knows the history first hand. His van is extremely comfortable and he had waters to offer. We are thrilled that we were able to optimize our limited time in the city by taking his tour. If you’re on the fence- go for it! Best spent half day!

Awesome tour! Johan is a walking encyclopedia. A wonderful tour of not just learning about the “new” Johannesburg but of the cities entire history. He also had a great story about being a teenage volunteer firefighter during the unrest.

Johan was amazing - my husband and I learnt so much having spent a day with Johan who took us through Johannesburg to Soweto and then in to the Cradle of Mankind. It was the most informative tour we have ever done. He was very punctual and made sure that we would be back at the airport at the allocated time having shown us everything we wanted to see and learn about. He drove safety and carefully and the car was very comfortable and clean Thanks Johan much appreciated.

We are experienced travellers and can recommend Johan as he is the owner of this business. He is also a key person in the Tourist Association aiming to build professionism into the local tourism industry. His website and booking process is reputable and you can see yours and others bookings so can be assured he has not double booked. We built our own program and despite a rally at the large hospital and a road closure still managed navigating throughout the city to keep to our timetable. We did miss one museum but he explained the history of Hector Peterson so we were not disappointed. He is a knowlegeable person passionate and truthful about his city he has lived in his entire life. We also did airport transfers making out stay stressfree. If ever in JoBurg I would definitely used Johan again without hesitation.
