Highly recommended tour! We had read the outstanding reviews for Peter as a tour guide but he was not able to accommodate us at such short notice (we booked the day before) and he informed me that Les would be taking the half day tour. Not sure what to expect with Peter not taking us, we were pleasantly surprised. Les... More

We used Peter for airport Transfers and a full day tour of Johannesburg and Soweto. Peter was a bit under the weather when he picked us up promptly from airport and explained he would not be able to be our guide on our tour for the following day, but had Leanord all set up for us. Leanord was amazing, very... More

Peter is a great guide, very knowledgable and easy to get on with. He showed us around Joburg, Soweto and finished up with the Apartheid museum. If you're in town, definitely recommend Peter

We only had a day in Johannesburg before heading south to Cape Town so we wanted to make the most of our limited time. A friend had recommended Peter Mashaba. Peter is a true gentleman and extremely knowledgable about his home city. He was also attuned to our interests. Our day took in the centre of Johannesburg with Constitutional Hill... More

Friends recommend Peter to us for a day trip of JB. Peter was great and gave us a good insight into both the wealthy suburbs and Soweto. The highlight was our walk through the market. At all times we felt safe. Peters knowledge and willingness to share his experiences were great We would happily recommend him to others
