Henry was a great guide.. he showed us around JoBerg and took us to a small village "Motsoaledi" what a great experience! He was just a real treat and told us the history of the city etc. I would use Henry again and I look forward to going back to S. Africa! A truly amazing place!

My wife and I arrived in Johannesburg in early morning and had the full day available before our safari/tour started the next morning. We contracted with Catz for an airport pickup and day tour of Johannesburg with an emphasis on Jewish Heritage. Annekie was terrific to deal with in making arrangements via email. She was efficient and responsive. Henry met us at the airport upon arrival just as promised. He helped us find an ATM and get some Rand. He took us to the hotel to check in and drop our luggage and then took us on a tour of the highlights of Johannesburg, including Jewish history. He was very personable, had a good sense of humor, and was extremely knowledgeable of both the Jewish history and of Johannesburg itself. The experience turned out to be everything we had hoped for on our first day in South Africa. We found the cost to be fair and would heartily recommend Catz to anyone looking for a similar experience.

On our last day in South Africa we had this full day tour with Catz Tours. It was a wonderful finale to a great vacation in South Africa. Our guide, Henry, is an amazing person, Knowledgeable, warm, kind, with great sense of humor. Henry introduced us to SA history as well as to the Jewish Community history in SA, answered to our questions patiently and in detail. Thanks to Henry we finished our holiday with big smiles and a desire to come again.

Glad that you enjoyed your tour with Henry. SA history is very important to us and we are constantly learning more about all the different aspects of our history, the Jewish history in our country is very strong and fascinating. Would love to see you come back to visit.

A note to say many thanks to Henry.
Right on time. Pleasant. Knowledgeable. Loves nature & animals; even from the human variety.
Great value for money and time spent. Hey we even saw a honey badger together.
Over all it was a great day!!
I have new memories for life thanks to Henry and the beautiful Pilanesburg park.

I am still very, very jealous that the two of you saw a honey badger in Pilanesberg. One of my favourite animals and I missed it. Well, al least you got to see it as this is such a rare sighting. Henry had a lovely day with you in the park. So happy that you got lovely memories of our animals and nature. Next time for sure the Kruger Park, and I will be going with you just in case you see another honey badger.

We had contracted Catz for Airport pick up at 15:00 and a day tour in Johannesburg. Our Flight from Zanzibar was changed and re-routed via Nairobi. We finally arrived at 3:00 O'clock in the morning next day, we were unable to inform Catz, at our surprise we found Catz people waiting for us at the Airport, they help us at the Hotel and re-arranged all next day program in order we have the opportunity to sleep some additional hours.
They were very professional, kind and helpful.
Our satisfaction to had choose them as our travel organizer in Johannesburg was complete.

What a night we had at the airport but just very glad that we finally did manage to get you all and that we all got a good nights rest. Luckily we also keep an eye on arrival times so we did manage to plan around that. Hope to see you back for a visit to our lovely country soon.
