First class tour and introduction to Johannesburg and Soweto. Lesley is passionate and incredibly knowledgeable about South Africa and all it has to offer. We learnt so much. She provides a quality tour service with nice little extras like snacks and drinks in a modern, clean and comfortable van. Lesley is so polite and helpful through both the booking process and delivery of the tour. I have no hesitation in recommending her services and would certainly book with her again.

Lesley picked us up at the airport for our Johannesburg and Soweto tour, meeting us at baggage claim with our name on a sign. For the next approximately 6 hours gave us a most interesting and informative tour of the region. This woman knows her neighborhoods as well as the geological, anthropological and historical information of South Africa. Highly recommend!

We would most certainly give a 5 star rating as Lesley’s enthusiasm and knowledge for all things relating to South Africa, and Joburg in particular, was outstanding. She adapted the tour to suit our interests and was willing and able to talk informatively on history, geography, wildlife, social issues and politics. During the day we saw and learned so much and the whole experience was a great adventure.

Lesley was a wealth of knowledge and navigated Johannesburg/Soweto with ease. We learned SO much about the city of Joburg and South Africa. She came prepared with sustenance & helped guide us through the museum stops. We did a shorter tour which I initially thought was enough, but her passion for her city and its history was infectious and left me hoping for a return visit so I could see everything else we didn't have time for. Highly recommend her if you want to truly understand the city and its history.

We had a day to spare in J'burg and the day with Lesley exceeded our expectations. Lesley is a wealth of knowledge and is passionate about South Africa. We wouldn't have been able to see what we saw & learnt the history of the area on our own. Great Hotel pick up drop off service. Highly recommended

This was a fantastic tour - Lesley gave us really thoughtful recommendations for a hotel choice - we followed her advice and could not have been happier. She picked us up and then took us on a fabulous tour of Johannesburg and Soweto, effortlessly driving and giving an incredibly detailed commentary at the same time. Lesley even had snacks and drinks for us. At the end, she dropped us at the airport in time to catch our flight home. Thank you Lesley!

Lesley managed to give us not only a tour of Johannesburg and Soweto but a tour of South Africa's incredible history - literally from cradle to now. Lesley's knowledge of facts and figures is absolutely incredible and she listened very carefully to what were were interested in and told us many stories and examples of how South Africa came to be what it is today illustrated by what we were seeing in front of our eyes. I would highly recommend Lesley to any visitor to Jo'burg.

Lesley was a delight. Very knowledgeable about Johannesburg and Soweto. She was a good sport with my very jet lagged family, we all dozed off on the drive back to the hotel. Comfortable VW van, lots of snacks and beverages. Wonderful tour and wonderful guide. I highly recommend.

Terrific. Lesley made it look easy despite the holiday closure of most museums (new year's day), poor weather, and our very last minute scheduling of the tour. Her creative planning, knowledge of the town and ability to discuss both historic and current events are not to be missed.
