I just returned from a tour which included South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana. We had only a day in JoBurg. From pre-post trip David Smith answered my questions, gave of his time & booked us on a Private Tour of Soweto-JoBurg. Although our flight arrived late, our guide, Charles, waited & took us on an unbridged yet still worthwhile tour including Constitution Hill,Soweto highlights & the Apartheid Museum. Charles was very informative and shared his favorite spots and made the most of our tour.
Great experience!

Just returned from an excellent day with Zongi and driver Pascal.
They were truly first class and both did your company proud. Zongi’s knowledge and obvious passion for his country were exceptional. Well done. We look forward to our next tour with African Blue out of Durban in a couple of weeks time.
Kind regards
