What people are saying about Johannesburg

An excellent day out with a fantastic guide (Nick)

Nick, our guide for the day, was knowledgeable, caring, approachable and very flexible. He was one of the key reasons why we really enjoyed the tour. The beginning was a bit disjointed, in that we did not know that an Uber driver would pick us up from the hotel to take us to Constitution Hill, where we would be met by our guide (whose name, at the time, we didn't know either) and fellow passengers. As neither the guide nor the van was "branded", we didn't know who or what we were looking for. After some confusion, Nick appeared (as did the remaining passengers) and all was good. I strongly recommend this experience. Bear in mind that when you wander around the market near Mandela's house, vendors will approach you all the time. I don't like this, particularly when it is so intense. It instantly puts me off. If you decide that you want to buy something despite the hassling, negotiate hard. Never pay more than 50% of the initial asking price.

Informative Heart Felt Empathy for the S. Africa's living conditions

Tour guide was excellent, timely and very knowledgeable about the cities, its people and culture. I would strongly recommend this tour. I would encourage tourists to cease taking advantage of the people when they purchase goods and services. The South African people are human beings and should be treated with respect and dignity. I pray the government and people who own so much wealth will be moved to do better by the people that serve them everyday. May God Bless the People of South Africa everywhere. May we all show more gratitude for the blessings we enjoy everyday. Amen!

The close encounters with the lion cubs and the giraffes is amazing

Unfortunately Afrika Tours (or a name almost like that...) that operates this tour cut us, for economics...the visits to the hienas and the leopards, buying tickets cheapers for a mini-safari; besides this, the guide was lost in the timeline and let us to Leisedi after the show, that took 2 hours, had begun (something around 20/25 minutes)...

Great way to see the city and learn some history in a few hours.

My guide Vincent was excellent. His knowledge of South African history, culture and social issues was really great. I was by myself so could ask lots of questions. I would have preferred to go with others though, as it would have been better value and I would benefit from others.

Great experience with lots of opportunity to interact with locals!

I can recommend this tour to everyone! The bikes are not in great shape but that only adds to the experience! :-) We made many stops and talked to many people on the streets. My guide Tumi was a great guy and pretty well known in the area.
