Our driver/guide was personable enough but he droned off a lot of facts on the way there that we had already heard on the red bus tour. He did not stop many places and basically drove to the Hector pieterson museum, then down the street where Mandela and ghandi had lived and then back to the hotel. Not worth the 750 Rand per person. Could have gotten to these places various ways cheaper.
Suggestion is to take 2 day tour with red bus that also goes to Soweto. Go to apartheid museum one day and Soweto the next. You get to see all the main sights and get the same info without it costing an arm and leg.

I Had A Group Of 12 People And We Took This Tour. SOPHIE AND JOE Are Wonderful. The Tour was great, But The best part wasJoe His personal story of his participation in the apartheid movement as a youth gave us a first hand look at what it was like and what one did. Take this tour and you will not only see the real Johannesburg but learn from someone who was there. THANK YOU AND IF I EVER HAVE ANOTHER GROUP I WILL BRING THEM TO YOU .

Sophie is a delight to work with on reservations and bookings and Joe is the quintessential guide and driver for those visiting Johannesburg. From meeting us at the airport to whisking us and our luggage away from the moment we arrived it was clear JMT was the best choice. Once settled, Joe took us on one of the most remarkable city tours I've ever experienced. His knowledge of Johannesburg is second to none and he shares that information in a way that makes history come alive. I highly recommend Joe and JMT Tours & Safari.

Visited Soweto and Johannesburg with a couple of friends and guided by a gentleman named TK. The guide was very professional and very, very informative. Really helped to change our perception about Soweto and South Africa in general....very helpful if I may say.
If you should visit Soweto or Johannesburg for that matter, I would suggest you run with these guys. Money and time well spent

JMT was the first of 2 tour companies used in S. Africa. We were a group of 77 African American tourists. Thoroughly enjoyed these guides most. They relayed historical and political accounts from varied perspectives. Explanation of apartheid and mining systemic and international ramifications was sobering. Accounts were honest and true. Priceless.
We didn't travel that far for distorted information. Appreciated a truly heartfelt sincere thanks to their African American brotheren for initiating the civil rights movement.
Coachs were clean and well maintained. Water was offered more than desired. Time schedules were maintained with a measure of flexiblity. Rest stops were timely as we are active seniors. No complaints.
So glad the travel agent used them. Gratuity was included. Felt completely safe, secure and protected in JMT Tours & Safari very capable hands. A repeatable experience. The best was our longest day, 0800-2300. Events were well paced.
