Full description
Start your day with pickup from your hotel in Johannesburg and set off on your guided tour of Pretoria. Your guide will escort you to some of the city’s highlights in an air-conditioned vehicle. You will begin with a visit to the Union Buildings, the official Seat of the National Government and a South African National Heritage Site. Next, you will visit the Paul Kruger House. Kruger was a resistance leader and key figure in the Transvaal War against the British in 1880-1881. In 1882, at the age of 57, Kruger was elected President of the Transvaal and later took up residence at Kruger House in Pretoria. Your next stop is the Voortrekker Monument, situated in a nature reserve in the Pretoria (Tshwane) area. It commemorates the pioneering spirit of Afrikaners, and is one of the most popular heritage sites in South Africa. On your last stop, you will head to the Cullinan Diamond Mine, where you will enjoy a guided surface tour of the mine and have the opportunity to purchase one of these rare and beautiful stones before returning to your accommodation.

Sunny was the best guide for this day tour! He arrived on time and spent the next few hours answering all my questions and telling me all kinds of interesting stories about South Africa’s history. The diamond mine was fascinating and I enjoyed the sights in Pretoria as well. Highly recommend for first time travelers to the area

The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour itself was very interesting. Also at the mine, I received lots of interesting info and hidden aspects of what we generally think about diamonds. I took the tour all alone and I understand the price had to be higher, but compared to the cost of life it was very expensive.

Great guide, punctual and knew his stuff. We felt we got an unbiased explanation of the sights. The tour is very insightful in parts of SA history, good and bad! Thank you!
