We frequently use ToursByLocals, world-wide. Lesley is outstanding with a firm understanding of the history from when the region was formed to modern day politics. Being such an experienced guide, our tour had a great evolving flow to it … through out lying areas, to the city … to top of bank building. Highly recommend her!

Lovely tour! I only had one afternoon in Johannesburg, and Lesley made sure I could see as much as possible of the city. The "old" and the "new", modern and classic, city and nature, infrastructure and culture... she covered everything. She accompanies the tour with history of the country so understand the whys. She's really easygoing so you enjoy the tour.

Lesley was our guide for three days. She always arrived on time, including picking us up at the train station. She is more knowledgeable about more things than anyone I know--history, botany, science, politics, etc. We learned a lot about South Africa from her as we drove to various places. She had lived in the United States for 2 years, and so could compare South Africa to the US, which was helpful.
Lesley was an extraordinary guide; she was flexible as to time and duration of our tour to accommodate our short stopover in Johannesburg and truly gave us an excellent understanding of the city as it is now and it's history. Although we were somewhat anxious about taking the tour with young children we felt at all times safe with Lesley as she knows the city so well. As we were limited in time and did not stop for a break Lesley kindly provided drinks, snacks and local delicacies. Highly recommended.
Lesley made me visited Joburg althougn I had only few hours. She is very passionate with history, which helps a lot understand this city and have the bigger picture. She has been very helpfull, friendly and ponctual. I would highly recommend her.

Lesley did an excellent job of showing me the different areas in Johannesburg, as well as giving me a very good background of the history of the city. Her knowledge of the historical background is very impressive. I really enjoyed the time I spent with her.
Great tour for a short visit in this big city. We get all the hotspots we want to see with a very professional guide. She is absolutely lovely and had a answer to all of our questions besides the tour and during the tour. It's not a normal tour but it is a real tour, not just like a great company, it's like your neighbour did it with you, absolutely friendly and always save. Thank you for this great 4 hours trip during our short connecting flight stay in joburg.

Consummate professional. Knowledgable and engaging. Lesley also has a keen sense to anticipate the clients' questions and concerns. I would not only recommend her services, but would engage her again when in the region.

OUTSTANDING! We had 1 1/2 days to see J'Burg and the Cradle of Mankind - and Lesley made it a relaxing, educational day and a half for our whole family! From Soweto to the Sterkfontein caves to our fist sightings at a game reserve (baboon's) - we loved every minute! She followed our interests, elaborated on history and culture (at our request) and is beyond knowledgeable about a myriad of topics! We can't recommend Lesley high enough! The Edwards family - just returned from our tours!
