Nathan was wonderful. Great tour. Well organized. Used local person for shantytown in Soweto who was excellent. Good pace and very informative. Glimpse of downtown Johannesburg. Really gained a sense of place
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are welcome an happy new year.
Nathan was a great tour guide - very knowledgeable, friendly and well organised. Nathan took me to see all sides of Soweto, which was fascinating and very eye-opening. Nathan was also very understanding when I came out of the Apartheid Museum - it is quite an overwhelming experience and he was very good at giving time and space, not just launching into the next bit of the tour. The whole tour was just a great experience - can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you!

Great trip - one thing I really liked was everything was inclusive - so no surprises when you turn up and realize you have more to pay to gain entry to museums/lunch, etc thought-provoking as we went around Soweto - would highly recommend

Nathan did an excellent job showing me around Johannesburg and Soweto. Excellent historian. Was very flexible in picking me up and scheduling. Showed me a very unbiased view of the city. Really enjoyed getting off the beaten path to interact with local people. Would highly recommend Nathan as your guide!

Nathan was a fantastic guide, flexible in accommodating our ideas, passionate about South Africa and especially Soweto, and fun to be with. He responded quickly to my emails and was happy to include changes we asked for. He wanted to make sure that we were introduced to the challenges and complexities of South Africa's history and its hopes for the future.

This tour is definitely pricey, but worth every penny. I've recommended it to my friends and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. We saw other tour groups in vans as we were doing our tour, but driving around with Nathan in his personal vehicle and getting a true inside look at life in Soweto made it a much more authentic experience. Nathan is an amazing guide - easy to understand, knowledgeable, friendly - it really felt like we were being shown around by an old acquaintance. Thank you so much, Nathan!

It was an eye opening experience, especially for our 13 year old. Nathan was knowledgeable and gave detailed answers to all our questions. And his English was excellent. We appreciated that he presented positive and negative information but without anger or judgement.
Sharon SchecterUnited States
Nathan is what a guide should be. Extremely knowledgeable, flexible re schedule, super accommodating, funny, passionate about his country and a terrific person overall. He will show you Soweto like you've grown up there. We enjoyed every minute of our tour Sharon and Michael
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sharon, hope you enjoy so much the rest of your tour. Bless you.
We saw and learnt so much of your beautiful country and its people in such a short time. The museum was informative and the countries history so sad. Nathan was a fabulous informative guide. The tour of the shanty town was eye opening and heartbreaking. If time had permitted I would have loved to have had just a little time to shop at the little street markets near Mandela's house and a meal at a local café to experience the real African food. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting here.

Nathan was a great guide. He was patient, knowledgeable and personable. My husband and I enjoyed our tour with him very much and would book him again without hesitation. The visit to the Apartheid Museum is a must. Our only regret is that we didn't have two days for the tour. We would have spent a full day at the museum and a second day for the remainder of the tour. All in all, the tour was a great way to spend a long layover.

Nathan was a superb guide. Knowledge, professional, and patient with our active 8-year old son! We highly recommend him.
Robert SindelarUnited States
Shout out to Nathan for a terrific day tour of Johannesburg! Nathan laid out a very thoughtful and intentional tour of Soweto, which included driving and walking with him, some walking on our own, and some touring/walking with other trusted contacts he has in the community. His personal experience is a great complement to the general knowledge he has about the community and the country. We highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert Thank you once again for using my services. Bless you. Nathan

An excellent tour by a local with local knowledge. A visit to the township should be compulsory for every tourist (we met locals on the tour too). Going into Orlando was moving and heart breaking. Well worth the price, if a little expensive for SA.
Nathan was great, very friendly, the tour was fun, , informative, insightful and on time. I strongly recommend him and will definitely go on this tour again.

Nathan was an excellent guide. During my one day private tour, I got to really understand the history of Johannesburg and had time to linger in places of interest. Nathan's knowledge of the events, people and the area of Soweto gave me a local's perspective that you don't get when simply visiting a place and reading plaques. He answered my questions and was able to tie in the past with the present. I recommend Nathan was a tour for anyone who wants a truly customized experience.
Nathan is a great guide! We had a very interesting and instructive day with him. It will surely be one of the best memories of our trip to SA! We recommend him!
Lore J.United States
We took the 1/2 day tour of Soweto with Nathan. He was very informative and we learned a lot about the history that led to the development of the community and had the opportunity to walk around the area near Mandela's home and one of the poverty stricken areas of the community. Nathan was very accommodating of our needs and I wouldn't hesitate to take another tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and God bless.
