The tour was very informative! It's always good to have a native to the land tour you! Though I think this tour is very expensive (especially without a food option), I think we would have paid close to the amount for a taxi or rental to travel there.

Hennie is an excellent tour guide. He has a strong interest in history, culture, and politics and reflects that interest in describing the development of his country.

Well done. It was interesting to see and hear the story of the Dutch Afrikaners and their confrontations with English colonials.

We had a great guide who gave us a lot of very interesting information about the railroad, the reason for the move to Pretoria, the life of Kruger, etc. Going though Kruger's house was especially intersting, to be able to see how they lived in style back then. I also really enjoyed seeing Kruger's train car, very impressive!

Our tour guide was named Lucky and we were lucky to be assigned to him!!! He was extremely knowledgable about all the sights, from the Voortrekker Monument to the current houses of parliament in Pretoria, to the Kruger House and Museum. He was even able to arrange a viewing of the original room where parliamentaians met!

This tour gives you some insight on the colonization of South Africa by the Dutch. It definitely helps you understand the present culture and why things are the way they currently are.

Nice with many museum and sightseein spots, but other than those, I myself like to see and feel more daily life of citizens, such as market or downtowns.

A great experience and a wonderful guide/driver. We had a good time and the tour was what we expected.

Excellent guide, very knowledgeable about the history of the Voortrekker monument, Paul Kruger house and South Africa in general. Enjoyed the trip thoroughly and the lunch @ the Boer restaurant was very interesting, even catered for the vegetarian travel buddy :-))

Excellent guide and a good lunch.

The guide was very nice and interesting. Unfortunately, since I was the only visitor to have booked the tour, I had to pay double to do the visit (as the visit runs from 2 visitors). That made it far too expensive for what it is. Otherwise, great experience, and very confortable to be picked up at the hotel.

It was OK.

Our driver collected us and 2 other couples, 1 of the other couples were catching the Rovos train in Pretoria and were very tight for time , the driver drove very fast to the train and then proceeded to drive very slowly the rest of the tour . Given that ther were very few stops to make it seemed that he was spinning the tour out to make it last. All in all we did not think this tour was good value for money, our score of 3 stars is being generous. We went on other tours with other operators that were great value for money.
