Johan is the best! Not only did he arrange for/coordinate an amazing weekend safari at Pilanesburg, he also led me on the best (most animal sightings) of all the safari I've been on. He is also a super nice guy and a pleasure to be with.

Johan has been our guide in 2014 when we did a tour through Johannesburg. The day was perfect and therefore we have asked him again in 2016 for a day tour to pilanesberg. This was also a perfect day. Would highly recommend Johan.

We had a great one day private tour of Johannesburg and Soweto with Johan. He tailored the tour to what we wanted to see, so you can customize your tour when you go with him. We had heard from the reception desk at the hotel that some tour guides can be up to two hours late picking up guests and... More

I was looking for a tour of Soweto that would help me understand the history and culture of the area, and with Johan's guidance, I got all of that and much more. Johan showcased the vibrancy of thea Soweto communities. The South African lunch at Wandy's was delicious too. I highly recommend any tour with Johan! You won't be sorry.

Visited Johannesburg for several weeks and needed a proper set of guided tours to break up working. Johan proposed a wonderful itinerary that was very reasonable in cost. I had to use a mobility scooter and everything went off without any problems. My niece and I had a rolling, fun, informative seminar for four days! We did the johannesburg and... More

Johan was our guide as my colleague and I toured around some heritage sites in South Africa scouting out locations for a trip we will run ourselves in the future. Johan was brilliant, he really made the trip. Whether in the city or in the bush, or just driving between places (which we did a lot of - well he... More

It can be hard to decide what to do with one or two days in a new place. My colleague and I decided to use one of our two days in Johannesburg to take a tour of the city with African Timeout and we are very glad that we did. Johan was responsive and flexible with the booking, and arrived... More

We had a day in Joburg and wanted a guide. Johan was superb. He picked us up at the airport and took us on a quick tour of Joburg, then to Soweto and then the Apartheid museum, before dropping us back at the airport. He has a huge knowledge of the area and it's history and makes the whole experience... More
