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.

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.

FANTASTIC full-day tour. Learned a lot about Johannesburg, culture, and history!!! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and well informed. The prison tour at the end of the day made a huge impact on us. This tour made us realize South Africa has evolved immensely just over the past decade or so ago... but I truly believe there is still a lot more that needs to be done for equality!! If you want an eye-opener, and an experience that offers reality, and gives you some historical insights- this is an EXCELLENT TOUR! Thank you very much!!

My wife and I had a day tour of Joburg with Solly on 2-20-20. We visited Constitution Hill and the prison (where Gandhi and Mandela were imprisoned), went to the top of the Carlton Centre (tallest building in Africa), visited the Apartheid Museum and lastly the village of Soweto. All of these locations were very informative about Joburg's current and past history. Solly was a great guide and gave us many insights into life in South Africa.

Solly was great! Very informative, patient and a wealth of knowledge. Even though our hotel wasn’t on the list up pick up locations, he agreed to pick us up at our hotel anyways. Our tour far exceeded my expectations!

Solly was the best tour guide ever ! He has been so flexible with our booking and comprehensive. We learned so much about Johannesburg, Soweto, Nelson Mandela, South Africa history, habits, cultures... we couldn’t get all those informations ourselves. Plus the fact we were a small group of 4 people allowed us to have an interactive visit in an excellent humor. Solly is dedicated to his job and he explains everything you need to know so that you are not surprised. Thank you so much again Solly !
