The most memorable parts of the tour was first having a great tour guide Solly. The historic narration was simple and yet powerful that kept my attention throughout the day. I was glad to have such a knowledgeable guide. I would do it all again in a heartbeat!!!
Excellent Tour To Understand Jo'burg History
, Aug 2021
Solly knows his stuff! Informative tour with every detail brought to life and every question thoroughly answered and discussed. With so much history to cover, Solly does a good job of weaving the different histories of Johannesburg, Soweto, Nelson Mandela, and the apartheid era together into a cohesive, easy to understand chronology. I'm deeply grateful for the experience he provided me.
amazing and educational

The constitutional hill...
, Mar 2021
The constitutional hill tour was out of this world. Hearing about where we come from as a nation and looking at where we are now, it is just makes me stop a lot of things for granted
Johannesburg City Tour
, Dec 2020
Solly is a great and enxperienced guide. He showed me a lot of things in Johannesburg, with so much pacience and attention. We visited The constitutional court, soweto, FNB stadium, Johannesburg downtown, Mandela House, Apharteid Museum, etc. If you want to learn about South Africa and Johannesburg I really recomend this tour.
, Dec 2020
Solly was an excellent guide. He was a wealth of knowledge and he is very justifiably proud of his country. I can’t recommend him well enough. He was the consummate professional.
