“Wonderful Johannesburg/Soweto Tour”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

I would recommend this tour to anyone. We were taken around Johannesburg for the history of the city and surrounding areas. The best piece was our Soweto tour that took us into an area that housed 20,000 people in a very small portion of Soweto. No electricity, barely running water, but very happy people. We were able to visit a day care in this area and meet several children. We did bring juice, sweets, etc with us to hand out to the kids. An awarding experience and one that we will never forget.

Thank you again for making the children so happy with the juice and sweets. They still talk about it when we visit and just want to know when you will be back. It is always great to take people on tour that has such a kind heart

“Henry Was Great!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Henry was a great guide.. he showed us around JoBerg and took us to a small village "Motsoaledi" what a great experience! He was just a real treat and told us the history of the city etc. I would use Henry again and I look forward to going back to S. Africa! A truly amazing place!

“Airport Pickup and Day Tour in Johannesburg, Including Jewish Heritage”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

My wife and I arrived in Johannesburg in early morning and had the full day available before our safari/tour started the next morning. We contracted with Catz for an airport pickup and day tour of Johannesburg with an emphasis on Jewish Heritage. Annekie was terrific to deal with in making arrangements via email. She was efficient and responsive. Henry met us at the airport upon arrival just as promised. He helped us find an ATM and get some Rand. He took us to the hotel to check in and drop our luggage and then took us on a tour of the highlights of Johannesburg, including Jewish history. He was very personable, had a good sense of humor, and was extremely knowledgeable of both the Jewish history and of Johannesburg itself. The experience turned out to be everything we had hoped for on our first day in South Africa. We found the cost to be fair and would heartily recommend Catz to anyone looking for a similar experience.

On our last day in South Africa we had this full day tour with Catz Tours. It was a wonderful finale to a great vacation in South Africa. Our guide, Henry, is an amazing person, Knowledgeable, warm, kind, with great sense of humor. Henry introduced us to SA history as well as to the Jewish Community history in SA, answered to our questions patiently and in detail. Thanks to Henry we finished our holiday with big smiles and a desire to come again.

Glad that you enjoyed your tour with Henry. SA history is very important to us and we are constantly learning more about all the different aspects of our history, the Jewish history in our country is very strong and fascinating. Would love to see you come back to visit.

I am still very, very jealous that the two of you saw a honey badger in Pilanesberg. One of my favourite animals and I missed it. Well, al least you got to see it as this is such a rare sighting. Henry had a lovely day with you in the park. So happy that you got lovely memories of our animals and nature. Next time for sure the Kruger Park, and I will be going with you just in case you see another honey badger.
