We had one free day in Johannesburg before starting a safari, and we wanted to see as much of the local area as possible. We knew that we wanted to visit Pretoria, Soweto and the Apartheid Museum with a focus on the history of South Africa. With that input, Malcolm constructed a great tour that showed us more than we...

I was only in Johannesburg for 4 days and they were all filled with tours accompanied by Janet and Linda. It was a completely customizable experience and I was able to do and see everything that I wanted to in my short visit. Janet and Linda were both so nice and welcoming, I had such a great time! Janet was... More

I spent one day with Janet and one day with Malcolm. Both are really passionnate by their country. I've learned a lot about South Africa and Jo'burg talking with them. They made me feel really comfortable and were really kind with my 4 years old kid. The visits we've done were appreciate by my kid and myself: JO'B + Rhino... More

Sometimes words are just not adequate to describe something so great. There is no way that my review will be able to convey what an amazing time we had, but I will try. We were looked after from the minute we arrived in Johannesburg. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport. In between, we were taken on... More

Malcolm was the perfect guide and explained us everything. In a short time we could learn so much about Johannesburg and South Africa. We really appriciated the two days. The tour was tailor made and we could chose how much time we like to spend at each view point. We have done some other tours before with another SA agency,... More

This is the second time that I took a day tour with Malcolm (the first one was in 2011). They were highlights of my trips to SA. Malcolm tailored the tours to our academic interests and he prepared very well. This is not a washed down abridged history of South Africa but a day of amazing discussions about places and... More

We only had a limited amount of time to explore Johannesburg on a recent business trip and we were so glad that we went with Ekala tours for our day trip. Janet, our guide, took us to the Cradle of Humankind and Rhino and Lion Reserve. She was extremely knowledgeable about all the animals in the reserve and it was... More

Had a great day with Malcom touring the city last weekend. He shared his wealth of knowledge which gave me a wonderful overview of his city and country. We went through the different suburbs/townships (Sandton, Houghton, Soweto and Alexandra), the various court buildings, Kliptown's Freedom Charter monument, FNB Football stadium, the Gold Reef City Casino (for lunch) and the apartheid...

My wife and I had a wonderful day walking with lions and visiting a Cheetah sanctuary with Ekala tours accompanied by Malcolm who was a very helpful and informative guide. We were looking for a way of making full use of the time we had available on the final day of our holiday before leaving on an early evening flight... More

We had the wonderful opportunity of spending two days with Janet touring the city of Joburg and Soweto. The days were filled with the most interesting wealth of knowledge and history of the area of Joburg, Soweto, Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum. We left Johannesburg with such a true understanding of what the people of South Africa endured. Janet... More
