As someone who travels frequently, I'm not easily impressed by tours, but I learned so much from this tour and experienced so much emotionally, it was easily my best tour experience. Solly gave first-hand insight that is not often provided by tour guides. From the history of

The enter process from start to finish was top notch! Solly is the ultimate professional. Very knowledgeable, patient and kind. The tour was amazing! My only regret is that I had another day to spend in Joburg in order to book another tour with Solly. HIGHLY recommend him!
