Cashan provided us with a great private one day layover tour of modern Joannesburg, Soweto and pivotal apartheid-related sites including the Hector Pieterson memorial and museum, the Nelson Mandela Museum and the Apartheid Museum, all awe-inspiring and thought provoking. The sites, along with our extremely friendly and deeply knowledgeable guide, Henry Zeiler, provided a great introduction and foundation for our... More

My wife and I were visiting South Africa for the first time. We are from America. Howard is very knowledgeable regarding the history and current development of South Africa. He help us gain perspective and a deeper appreciation for this great Country. It was amazing.

We visited Orlando West and the Mandela house, the Apartheid museum, the Carlton tower - the Top of Africa, various markets and city sites and received a magnificent overview of the social, political, economic and geological history of the city.

My daughter and I had a long layover in Johannesburg before heading back to the US. Instead of sitting in the airport, we took advantage of Cashan Tours. It was the best and most worthwhile 4 hours. Chris, our driver and guide, gave us a great overview of the city and surrounding area. From The Top of Africa, an observation... More

Hi there Sookie1 ! Thank you very much for your review and I agree, time in a departure lounge can be better spent! I have found that it is entirely possible to get a micro tour in if I use the Top of the Carlton as a viewpoint. It is remarkable how much one can do from such a high... More

I only had a single day of personal time to sightsee while on a business trip, so I wanted a private tour to make the most of the little time I had.

We managed to fit in not just Soweto and the Apartheid museum but also the Origins museum and downtown Joburg with its lively cafes, bookshops, markets.

We spent two days and one night with Chris in the Pilanesburg Safari. The experience we had I am sure is unparalleled, within a few minutes we felt like we had known Chris for years, his knowledge and expertise was remarkable and I would highly recommend him!
