We had a great trip with Kutlwano. It's amazing what he knows at the age of 20, what patience he brings and also his friendly and open manner. We learned a lot about Johannesburg, from history, the ups and downs. At the end there was a delicious meal together. The fact that Kutlwano is interested in you also shows that a day later he wishes us a pleasant departure.

Our guide was excellent in all ways. We felt safe the entire time. He gave a lots of insights into the history of Joburg. He gave us a nice history of his own journey. We interacted with very well, and he answered all our many questions. The entire experience was excellent.

TEBOGO was fantastic! He is so knowledgeable about the history and culture of Joburg. We are very happy that we did his tour right after we arrived, because he introduced us to so much. He linked different events and people together, making the tour a fine introduction to the changes that Joburg underwent over the last two centuries. We liked that he spoke slowly and clearly, so that everyone could understand him. Always ready to take time to answer questions, he shepherded us through downtown. We felt safe, because he kept us to the right neighborhoods. We even took an Uber one time to hop past an area he wanted to avoid. Walking tours are the best way to get a feel for a city and we appreciated getting to know several neighborhoods. We gained a good foundation for a (van-type) tour of different areas the following day. We have enjoyed walking tours all over the world and feel that he is up there with the best. We particularly enjoyed ending with a typical South African meal!
