Johnny did not disappoint on any level. He exceeded our expectations as he was genuinely interested in sharing stories and insights about the Durban of the past, present and future! His approach included walking; taking a local bus; a minivan; tasting food in local markets; interacting with shop owners; taking in panoramic views and engaging in questions about South Africa's apartheid and current society. At short notice, he coordinated a tour of the Sani Pass with an another operator which was an excellent adventure! We left behind our favourite coffee mug and he arranged for its return on our way to the airport! Johnny is THE best!

My friend and I just so happened to meet Johnny as he was picking up another guest from our hostel. He was kind enough to let us join his tour. It was a wonderful experience. We really got to see a different side of Durban and gain a better understanding of the history and culture. Johnny was very knowledgeable and guided our group through some interesting areas and delicious food items. He even helped us to get a ride from the tour straight to the airport. Would highly recommend for a good tour in Durban.

This experience is like other. We got to explore places in Durban we would never see on our own. The tour included a unique view into the landscape, people and resourceful transportation in and around the neighborhoods, city, and Durban Beach. Johnny is a great guide! We tried new and unique food and had time to do some local shopping. I bought a beautiful skirt and love the looks on the faces of the people at our resort when they learned where I got it.

Johnny was a fabulous guide. We learned the history, culture,politics of Durban while visiting neighborhoods,African markets, and tasting delicious African food that we wouldn't even know to order. We walked, we rode the local buses and we finished with a lunch of bunny chow on the beach The tour could not have been better! Highly recommend our guide Johnny and this tour!

I couldn't have thought of a better first impression of Durban than what I got through Johnny! He has so many stories to tell and so much information about south africas politics, culture and people and he takes you to beautiful, authentic markets you'd probably never visit on your own. I can really recommend this tour to anybody coming to Durban!
