John, our guide was excellent. He really knows the history and geography of South Africa. I have already decided that I will return to spend a couple days at the Apartheid Museum. Very emotional and sobering experience. John was on time and gave detailed explanations. He said he wished he had more tourists like us. We totally enjoyed and appreciated this experience. I appreciate that he was on time and started his explanations immediately after the introductions.
The tour was well organised. Worth a half day trip. You get a local tour guide to walk a bit inside Soweto which is a great expensive and gives you a chance to interact with the locals. There was no WiFi on the minivan as indicated but that gave us a chance to concentrate on the guide and appreciate the stops uninterrupted. We covered all the historic stops and took time to take them in.
This tour covered some major points of interest in Pretoria as well as Soweto and Johannesburg. Our guide John was knowledgeable and we enjoyed his commentary. His presentation of parts of South Africa's history was unbiased and objective given the complex nature of this country's past during the Apartheid era. We highly recommend this tour.
Vincent was a very informative guide and it was very interesting to see different aspects of life in Pretoria/Johannesburg/Soweto. I learnt many things including that Soweto not a name but initials for an area created by a white majority for the blacks to live.
This was a very interesting trip. Seen a lot of different aspects and places in Johannesburg and Soweto. Sunset over Soweto was great. And as always, it depends on the Guide. James was great. He has the knowledge of a lot of places and peoples there.
