Best Experience Ever!
Oct 2019
We were in S.Africa for 2 week. We were skeptical about hiring transportation. We are so glad we did. Bongani transported us from the airport to our hotel. We just instantly clicked with Bongani. We hired him for 2 tours on the same day. We spent 12 hours with Bongani covering Joburg, Soweto and Ledisi Cultural Experience. Bongani is VERY knowledgeable about the history and sights of Joburg area. Through our conversations....he would adjust and say I think you would love to see this or that. I honestly don't think we would have had this experience had we not had Bongani as our driver. He was prompt, safe driver and we totally forgot we were actually strangers. It was as if he was part of our trip. We started out with a driver and ended up with a dear friend for life. If you are in S.Africa and need a driver---you need to BOOK Bongani!! We are a military couple and my husband instincts from trainings makes him guarded about most things. He was not guarded the entire time with Bongani. By the way we visited other countries on this trip and hired drivers and the experience was not the same. Also, I only read reviews - normally do not post but I had to post about Bongani!

Dear Lucinda, Honestly while reading this, I was feeling something in my throat and a bit teary and feeling proud at the same time that Bongani is in our corner. We can train and teach our drivers how to be of service to our clients but what I just read here about Bongani is another level. Thank you for sharing with the world this experience.

Great Tour!
Sep 2019
I researched many tours to Soweto before I chose this one.
I liked that it is a private tour at a great price! The chauffeur/guide was Elvis Dube. He picked me up at my hotel. I had to change the pick up place the day before and it was no problem at all! He was very nice and informed.
The day turned out a bit different than usual I think, because that day was Heritage Day in South Africa. Vilakazi Street was very busy with celebrations on every corner, dancing and singing. Elvis didn't mind stopping each time I wanted to watch a street performer. He extended the tour by a half hour which turned into an hour at no extra charge! Awesome!! Thanks!!
Highly recomment this company!

Dear Catonne, Thank you for taking time to write such a great review, we really do appreciate. We try to make each visitor to South Africa has a great memory and it looks like we managed to that, thanks to Elvis and it was made more easy for us because you came at a time when it was Heritage Day and got to experience the full, Rainbow Nation and we are glad that we are the ones that you chose to make memories with.
