This tour is very informative with many insightful aspects of South African history. Our tour guide, Pascal, was not only very knowledgeable, he was also astute in his understanding of this country’s diversity, racial dynamics and the political sphere. As bilingual (English/French) speakers from Haiti, we appreciated our tour guide’s command of both languages. This allowed for further insights into the dynamics of this fascinating country. I would highly recommend this tour, and Pascal as a guide, to any future visitor.

This was our second tour with this company and we loved our guide James so much we asked them to do the Pretoria tour with him. He has so much knowledge about the history of South Africa! The cars are brand new and very comfortable. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
