If you have 1 day in Durban, see it with Sthembiso. He is the best!
We booked him 9 months ago, listing what we wanted to cram into our 1 day available and he did not disappoint. His company, Street Scene, provides, professional quality service. We did a combo City & Township Tour which was one of the highlights of our 6 weeks aboard. Sthembiso was unstinting in his desire to explain the history and culture of black South Africans by taking us to their local 'muti' market and a township. He offered us a city cafe lunch or a traditional "shisanyama lunch" township one. A no brainer. The township lunch, (he ordered BBQed meats, beans, etc) was a delicious, memorable feast washed down with a chilled bottle of local Savanna cider. Along with colonial downtown stops, high city views, etc., he took us to Gandhi's house outside of town, to Dube's historical homestead, to Mandela's first voting location all the while answering every question and explaining past/current politics and culture. All day, we were overwhelmed with his knowledge, courtesy, kindness. At day's end, we congratulated ourselves on finding him!
This is the South African tour that should be mandatory for every foreign visitor!
