Our hotel arranged for Jacob to provide a full day tour with stops at galleries and Soweto. We feel like we completely lucked out! Jacob is smart, knowledgeable and thoughtful. He easily explained the historical significance of the sites we visited, encouraged us to stop for photos, and gave us his take on current events x all in all, an excellent guide to this bustling city. I would definitely book with him again!

Im completely blown away by my trip to Johannesburg, South Africa and that is mainly due to Jacob and his expertly curated tour guide experience. Jacob came highly recommended by the Four Seasons Westcliff concierge. Coming from the United States, you often are worried about visiting a foreign country because you dont know who you can trust. Jacob immediately felt like home. He was welcoming, knowledgeable, insightful, kind, flexible, you name it, thats him. I wasnt sure what to expect but after the first day of touring Soweto, the Apartheid museum, Winnie Mandela’s house, Nelson Mandelas house which included a tour and an amazing dinner as well as many other cool locations, I knew that i needed to keep Jacob around to really experience South Africa. I even cancelled my Safari Experience with another company to book with Jacob instead. I also want to mention that Jacob makes sure to capture these amazing pictures while you get to live in the moment. I felt like i had my own personal photographer (a sensational one at that). If you wanna feel completely at ease, and truly have the best time ever, book with Jacob and Explore Joburg!

We had a GREAT tour with Jacob. He is very knowledgeable about Jo'burg, Soweto, its surroundings and history. We initially started with a half-day tour but extended it to a full-day tour because we were having too much fun. He picked us up at our location and drop us off again. Great service. HIGHLY recommended!

Even though the museum has been closed for Covid, Jacob managed to create a thorough and authentic experience by taking us to main highlights. Really informative and enjoyable.
