Tour: #506985, Experience Soweto, Soweto, South Africa    view tour
Date: Oct 20/19

Our tour of Soweto was enhanced by having a Soweto local, Queen, as our local guide. We saw part of it by car then stopped at the Hector Pieterson Museum - a moving experience with many personal accounts and photos. We visited the Mandela House Museum where Nelson Mandela lived prior to his years in prison. Seeing the places we had read or heard about was fascinating. Elna let Queen share her story of life in Soweto and her views on what has and hasn't changed. Enlightening experience!

Tour: #518713, Elephant walk - One hour from Johannesburg, Johannesburg, South Africa    view tour
Date: Oct 19/19

We met the elephant trainers and quickly found the elephants. We learned about them as we watched and walked with them, ending up at the mud hole where they sprayed themselves with muddy water - while we watched from 20 feet away. It was a unique and fascinating experience. Lunch was delicious and as we ate, the elephants came up to the lodge and drank from the swimming pool. The museum at the Sterkfontein Caves was interesting as well. Elna's recommendation for this tour was perfect!

Tour: #592777, Mini Safari and cultural tour, Johannesburg, South Africa    view tour
Date: Oct 18/19

All my contact with Elna was timely and professional. She put together 2 personal itineraries for my friend and I. The Lesedi cultural village was interesting and fun and the lunch of local cuisine very good. We got to see lots of lions and other animals up close at the Lion Park but my favorite of the day was petting the lion cub. Elna's timing was perfect as we were the only ones in line. She/we got the royal treatment and the handlers actually guided the lion cub into my lap! She even took photos!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad you enjoyed it! It was a pleasure taking you girls around! Hope the rest of your trip was fantastic!

Tour: Three Day Tour, Johannesburg, South Africa
Date: Sep 10/19

We met Elna for a 3 day tour in and around Johannesburg. She was extremely professional, fun, friendly and easy to get along with. We had 3 wonderful days, where she brought us to the Lion Park, experienced the diversity of the Cradle of Humankind, the Caves and Diamond mines near Pretoria and the amazing Botanical Gardens near Krugersdorp. Everything was taken care of and well organised. Her cars are top of the range, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our time and felt we made a new friend.

Tour: #510230, Sterkfontein Caves & Lesedi Cultural Village Day Tour, Johannesburg, South Africa    view tour
Date: Apr 27/19

Elna was great. She was friendly, informative and a pleasure to spend the day with. We went to the Sterkfontein Caves, Lesedi Village and an extra stop at the Lion & Safari Park. It was obvious throughout the day that she knew the sites, the people who ran them and how to get the best out of them. We highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Meeting people like you, reminds me why I do what I do.

My day in Johannesburg with Elna was perfect. She responded to all my online communication immediately and explained everything clearly. She always stayed in touch. She picked me up at the airport promptly. She is very personable and knowledgeable and has a friendly personality. She is an excellent driver and her car is very comfortable and clean. She designed a custom tour for me to take me to the places I wanted to see. Whenever I go back to South Africa I am going to book a tour with her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rhonda, So glad you enjoyed it, it was great fun. Looking forward to see you here again!

We had only one day in Johannesburg on a lay-over and Elna helped us make the most of it. She tailored a tour for our specific interests. We had a great day and recommend Elna without reservation.

Tour: Magaliesberg tour for Samehra, Johannesburg, South Africa
Date: Oct 6/18

I was very pleased with the whole experience. Elna was very helpful whilst we communicated via email to organize the tour. She suggested various options and we finally agreed on the plan & I booked online. When I arrived in South Africa, Elna made sure we had correct contact details and came to the lobby to meet me on the day. The whole day went at a nice pace and I had a fun day out with Elna. She is warm, friendly yet professional and really knows her stuff. Thoroughly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sam, It was great fun showing you around! You are always welcome back!!
