Nathan was a great guide, very passionate and knowledgeable and willing to answer our questions about the political and social development of South Africa. Introduced us to Vusi who took us into the Shanty Town for a short thought provoking tour. Our only suggestion...a sign with name of client for airport pickups would have made contact much easier.
