Excellent! Anthony arranged all the details over whatsapp which was convenient as I didn't have international roam. What I appreciated the most about the tour was how flexible he was in tailoring it so I could see places of interest to me in Johannesburg. He's incredibly friendly and his enthusiasm for his city also made my tour more enjoyable. Going to Soweto was wonderful and safe as too downtown Joburg.
Wonderful!! Would fly back to South Africa just to do this tour again. Anthony was a phenomenal guide-- friendly and intelligent, informed us of all the happenings and rich history of Johannesburg throughout the day. He tailors the tour to the needs and desires of those on the tour, and makes you feel safe and well taken care of the entire time! Nelson Mandela is one of my heroes and when I told Anthony that, he drove me through town to see all the Mandela related sites and exhibits in addition to the normal itinerary. The Lion Park was a great interactive experience with the animals, the food in Soweto was so delicious, the streets were bustling with entertainment, and the Nelson Mandela home visit and Apartheid Museum were so moving and powerful. The kind of tour that leaves you wanting more of South Africa : Fantastic all around.
Booked this trip on the last day of our Johannesburg leg and Anthony was a great guide! Firstly, we didn't have cell phone access but Anthony contacted me through WhatsApp and we were able to arrange pickup/dropoff locations through chat so that made me feel confident that we were in capable hands. When Anthony picked us up he was very friendly and asked what specifically we were interested in seeing on our tour and tailored the day specifically to our preference and time restrictions. I would recommend this tour and Anthony specifically to other friends who visit Joburg!
Absolutely fabulous !! Couldn't ask for more !! I have a very packed schedule yet I still managed to see a lot of things in one day. Thank you so much !!
Unprofessional, unorganised tour, not worth the money.
Lion parc was the highlight, but different one than advertised.
No chance to make some downtown photos.
Friendly driver though.
This tour started off promising but was ultimately disappointing. Anthony picked us up and drove us to the Lion Park, and we enjoyed our conversation along the way. At the park, we were joined by another traveler who was driven there by a different driver, allegedly because she was staying in a different part of town. However, with no prior warning, Anthony ditched us while we were on the safari to lead another tour, presumably because he got a better offer at the last minute we had even left some belongings in his car. The other driver, who is not a tour guide he works for Uber and spoke broken English, led the remainder of the tour. Whereas Anthony would have given us a great tour of the city, we ended up paying a lot for a driver who had limited knowledge of the city.
Also, the tour does not include your admission prices. You will have to pay for your admission to the Lion Park, Mandela House, and Apartheid Museum. The lunch also was not very good.
