This tour was a fantastic way to see the top sights of Johannesburg if you have a limited amount of time in the city, if you aren't sure what to see, or if you want to get a good overview of the city. The Apartheid Museum was amazing- historic, informative, moving, powerful. Visiting Nelson and Winnie Mandela's house was great- that from so humble a home could rise such strength and leadership.
Our guide was really good in highlighting the history of the country and was quite passionate about his own experience growing up there. Sad to see how people are still living like they are in Soweto. The only down side of the trip was the food when we stopped of for something to eat considering the price we paid for the tour. On the plus side, it was just us with a personal guide.
This tour was excellent! It provided us with information about Johannesburg and Soweto that we would not have received from a "travel book." The visit to Nelson Mandela's home was moving. And, I found the honorary degree that my university presented to President Mandela. So proud to see Kentucky State University as a part of the tour! The end a the Apartheid Museum was impactful and emotional. Sylvan, our guide was amazing!
It was my first trip to Johannesburg and I wanted to visit the "tourist" spots. I researched online and found this tour and it sounded perfect. Imagine my joy when my guide showed up and I learned it was a solo tour. The guide was courtesy and very patient with me. I was visiting from the states and often unable to understand what people say. He had no problem repeating himself. As we went on the tour, if I asked questions about other sites, he politely responded. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone else.
This was by far the best tour ever! Our guide Lambert was the absolute best. He was very informative and patient with our group. I would recommend this tour to anyone. We saw a lot of interesting things. It was a real eye opener. Best tour ever.
