Brilliant. I had no idea S Africa was so beautiful and the people so friendly. I did not feel unsafe at any stage in the trip. I highly recommend it.
Jo'burg gets a mixed press, and on the basis of our tour, undeservedly so. Our guide Moses was informative and gave a lively and fascinating presentation of Johannesburg's role in the development of modern-day South Africa. The Constitutional Court was well worth a visit, and seeing the redevelopment of down-town Jo'burg was a welcome antidote to the scare stories one hears. Highly recommended, and I just wish we'd had enough time to see Soweto too under Moses' excellent guidance.
Our tour guide was Hennie of Tourvest. He was very proud of his city Johannesburg and wanted to impart as much knowledge and show us as much as he could during our half day tour. We were lucky to have such an informative tour and I would recommend Hennie for any tour in and around Johannesburg.
Excellent guide - punctual, informative and willing to answer questions. Really interesting - not much to see, as such, but lots of interesting info if you're interesting in the politics and history of the place.
Our guide Tembo was excellent. He was very informative and friendly. I would have loved to have spent a little more time on the tour. The time seemd a little rushed. However, it was a great insight into JoBurg. I will highly recommend to family and friends.

Driver right on time. Very knowledgeable. Was very pleased with tour.
Again, this was a great opportunity to learn about Soweto and related socio/political changes from a resident.
The tour was excellent, The guide was informative and so enthusiastic about his subject that it was infectious despite the fact that we had just from the airport after an 11 hour flight
Our tour guide was very professional, informative and friendly. He personalised the tour to show us places which he felt would interest us the most, and we did not feel rushed.
The tour was good to get an overview of the city - we were just unlucky to have scheduled it for a Saturday afternoon when things close up early and the guide on Constitution Hill wasn't available and such - that being said - I'm glad we did it!
Had a very personalised tour of Jo'Burg given there were only 2 of us on the tour. It was a good way to get to see the city of Jo'Burg and to learn the local history. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative.
The guide was good and informative and made the tour an excellent experience. However, do not think that Hillbrow is now crime free!
Great way to see a large portion of the city and its diverse culture in a short period of time. You also get to visit downtown areas that you would perhaps not otherwise have the opportunity to experience! A bit of waiting around as the mini bus drives round to collect people from all the different hotels, but otherwise a really good trip.
Absolutely no reflection on our pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide, but there just isn't a lot to see in the Johannesburg, CBD. We greatly appreciated the drive through Houghton to get a sense of how the "other half" lives, to pass by Mr. Mandela's residence, as well as the historical perspective Andrew shared on the mining industry and other aspects of South African history.
I had expected a little more out of this trip. I was mainly driving through the city and not much sightseeing. Mandela Square was not included at all.
Although the tour guide was okay in general, just average but nothing extraordinary, I did not like the fact that he was almost forcing me to give him a tip, something I only do when the service was really extraordinary. I appreciate that the tour operator made my pick up in a hotel far from downtown Jojannesburg, making an honourable exception.
