We were a party of four and spent one day touring Jo Burg and Soweto with Lesley. She did an outstanding job of giving us a historical perspective of area from it's geology formation, to discovery of gold, to it's growth, it's neighborhood development and the political environment of South Africa. We packed a lot into our day. Lesley did an wonderful job and we would highly recommend her as a guide.

Lesley did a fantastic job of showing us the city of Johannesburg, Soweto, the Apartheid Museum and more in the full day we spent with her. We wish we had another day to explore other parts of the area. She was always conscious of our safety and we never felt at risk. I would highly recommend Lesley. She has terrific knowledge of the history of the country and city in addition to the scientific discoveries being made at the Cradle of Mankind.

This tour offered an utstanding overview of all of Johannesburg which proved an unexpectedly interesting city. Lesley is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and flexible. We experienced a little of everything Joburg and Soweto have to offer in a day and didn't feel the least bit rushed. Don't hesitate to contact Lesley for any of your touring needs - she does a great, great job!

Lesley's all-day tour of Johannesburg and Soweto was truly outstanding. Not only did she bring Johannesburg "alive" to us, but she imparted significant knowledge of the history of South Africa, as well as a modern day perspective of the region!!! We truly saw the sights and give Lesley the highest rating possible!!!

I felt Lesley was well prepared to adapt the tour to the needs and interests of the client. I gave her a free hand to show us what she felt we should see and very much enjoyed the tour.She also gave a very honest tour of what is going on in the Johannesburg area.

Lesley was an excellent guide. Her English was flawless and her knowledge about the history of South Africa was superior. Lesley showed us Johannesburg and Soweto and gave us a good insight into the life style of South Africa. Lesley provided us with ample snacks and water during the tour.

A very instructive and interesting tour of Jo'burg. The tour was tailored to my particular interests and included some sights and "edgy" locations which I think gave a very good insight into what living in the city is like. Lesley also provided a wide range of snacks and drinks to enjoy as we drove around in the van, which was a nice touch.

I thought I knew South Africa and especially Johannesburg from what I read in the books and watched on the TVs. But Miss Lensley made me to realize that I didn't absolutely know anything yet. I have never been taken on a roller coaster ride as far as tour is concerned until now. She's wonderful. Just perfect. She knew her job and everting seems to be at the back of her hand. I can't wait for tomorrow for the second part of my tour. My family are so excited.

Lesley was very knowledgeable and the tour was very informative. Time management was a bit of a problem, though. The morning moved at a very leisurely pace while the afternoon - and the two locations at which we had specifically requested to spend time - was quite rushed. Otherwise, a very enjoyable day spent with a very nice guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jerri, I am really sorry that you felt the time management was that far out. I do find it awkward to judge how much time people will spend in a venue, and the Apartheid Museum especially so. Some people request to see it and spend 1 hour, and I know that you could have spent longer. Kind regards, Lesley

This is a very easy yet informative and customizable tour. Leslie discussed with me the possible options for the day, based on what I wanted to see, what I changed my mind about, and what we had time for. I have never known someone so knowledgeable about a city/country before. There wasn't a question I could think of that she didn't know an answer for. Of course there was a tremendous amount of information and I could not remember all of it, but it was very informative and I will remember a lot of it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Adam, Thank you for your comment. I really enjoyed our day together, and am glad you did as well. There is nothing I enjoy more than showing someone my country.

Lesley has amazing knowledge of South Africa - it's history and peoples. She did a great job tailoring our itinerary to fit what we wanted to see and do in Jo'burg. A very pleasant and friendly guide. She packed a great 'snack lunch' and willingly accommodated our and our kids' diet requests (vegetarians and food allergies). She went out of her way to drive all the way back in the night to return a backpack we forgot in the van - thank you Lesley! You've made great memories possible for us!
