Nathan is a very knowledgeable tour guide. He picked us up from the airport and took us to do a tour of Soweto. The highlight of the tour was seeing the slums in Soweto. Also, all four of us are vegetarians - Nathan arranged lunch for us that was very good.

Very impressed by Nathan's knowledge of history of his country. He gave a very thorough tour of Jo'burg, Soweto, and everywhere inbetween. I highly recommend this tour. Put on your walking shoes, and be ready to trek through the big city! All of the tours Nathan guides are well worth the investment.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are welcome and thank a lot.

Nathan was timely, accommodating, knowledgeable, and very kind. He tells the stories of the various townships south of Johannesburg with an understanding of the history and the effect on the lives of the people involved. He sees a future for himself and he has a positive attitude. Nathan showed us a wonderful day on our first day in Africa. Thank you, Nathan.

I had a great tour with Nathan. The first stop was the Apartheid Museum. Then to Soweto to see the different areas there. This included a stop at the Nelson Mandela Museum and lunch. There is also a stop at one of the shantytowns in the area. I appreciated the opportunity to see this area, and not just the tourist areas.

Fantastic tour with Nathan, his knowledge of Soweto and Johannesburg is excellent. He was also able to accomodate my tour at late notice and adjusted the schedule for a later arrival.

Nathan was very friendly, charismatic and had many interesting stories to share. The planned agenda is quite good and the locations given an extra dynamic thanks to Nathan's enthusiasm.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rania, the 3usd was not a payment for the guide in shanty town but a gratitude per se. I actually paid him much more than that. The 30 minutes allocated was standard and in doing so we had to balance your adventure and intetest in an underpriviledged area and at the same time avoid being seen as a disrespectful cultural safari. And what was of utmost importance was your safety.We could not expose you to unsuitable elements no matter how comfortable you felt in that area.Your safety was a priority.

I was to do this trip alone and was quite anxious at spending the whole day in the company of someone I did not know, but I should not have been concerned, as I had a relaxed and memorable day, which was all thanks to Nathan's wonderful ability to put you at your ease. I would recommend anyone to go on this trip with Nathan as it made my trip to Joannesburg.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andrea, you are wekcome.

A very informative tour of Soweto. Nathan the guide was very friendly and happy to answer any of my questions. The driver Teboho was great too. I learnt a lot about the history of apartheid and the struggle against it. It was a real surprise to me when I realised that Soweto is pretty much a city itself! Well worth it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks.

Nathan was amazing. He was extremely perceptive in not only understanding what I wanted to do and creating a 100% personalized itinerary, but also in understanding my personality and presenting information at a manner and pace I was comfortable with. I could tell he had worked many more hours than just during the tour. He had spent the whole previous day preparing to make sure I had the best possible experience. By the end of the day I had a personal friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are welcome and wish you all the best.

Did the full day Soweto tour with Nathan, which was an extremely fascinating yet touching experience. Nathan knows and loves to present all the interesting spots of this famous township, where he grew up and lives. He picked me up, drove me around, was full of knowledge and compassion, encouraged me to walk around by myself, we had beer in a shebeen and dinner in an authentic restaurant - an unforgettable day in Soweto. Nathan is highly recommended!

I took the one day tour of Soweto given by Nathan. In addition to visiting Soweto (including Nelson Mandela's house) we also visited the Apartheid Museum. Nathan was very accommodating and also took me to the Johannesburg Art Gallery upon my request. Nathan is very knowledgeable and passionate about Soweto.
