Dear Ken.

Trust this Email finds you well.
In the name of the programme managers, I wanted to thank you for a great tour - actually the best tour on Saturday in and around Soweto.
Both Bongani and Ngugi were extremely knowledgeable and conversant about the history of not only Soweto but the South African experience, and their openness and easy mindset made it easy for everyone to absorbe the learning and immerse into Soweto.
I have a few group pics that I will be sending you at some other point in time.
A great thank you to everyone involved in this Soweto Tour.

Kind regards,

Dear Denis,

Thank you so much for helping us again this year.

All of our programmes have proved to be a meaningful and life changing experiences for those who participated. The time we spent in Soweto was certainly one of the highlights of the trip for all those involved. They felt privileged and uplifted to be able to make the children and the other people they met smile, even if for some it was only for a day.

On behalf of everyone at AISH, we thank you all for the work that you have put in to help make our programs such a success – we hope that we will work together for many more years continuing to have such a great affect on the lives of so many needy South Africans.

I wish you all a very happy and a healthy year.

Dear Katlego,

I just had to write and tell you what a wonderful time we had with Bongani on our tour of Soweto on Tuesday. He really went out of his way to explain everything to Christian about life in Soweto . they were both born in Bara hospital so there was the first bond as well as them both being Zulu. Christian has to do a project on his trip to SA when he goes back to school so Bongani gave him a lot of information.. I shall certainly be advertising your trips . I have been in SA SINCE 1968 and this is the first time I had had a guided tour although I had been in Soweto many times to churches.
Thank you for all your help in making this such a memorable tour for my USA visitors.

Hi there,

We have returned from our rather rushed weekend in Johannesburg. The highlight of the weekend was definitely the tour of Soweto on Sunday morning, with Bongani. He was professional, knowledgeable, and funny. He didn't rush us but rather let us take time to absorb things around us. He made us feel very safe and comfortable in an environment that we would have otherwise never visited. I hope your team keeps up the fantastic work sharing not only the troubles people have in Soweto in the past but also highlighting the wonderful spirit that has driven the people to achieve the great victories of the past, and are now looking forward to improving the future.
Thank you Bongani for a truly uplifting tour.

Yours Pamela Thorpe


Hi Katlego

Just a note to say thank you for an outstanding tour today. Bongani was a professional and fantastic guide, he was great with all the ages that came with us today . It was also fantastic to meet Percy who looked after us in the market and welcomed us into his home what a wonderful man. Colin is an inspiration and we applaud the work that they all do at the youth centre.

We all loved the trip and would recommend it to anybody .

May I just say that our tour today with Gugi was absolutely superb. He is a
remarkable guide and offered us such insight into South Africa and Soweto.
We could not have asked for a more outstanding introduction to this complex
and
captivating country with its unique history and mix of cultures. The
personal encounters we had in Kliptown and at the pub with the live music
were
especially rewarding.  I'll be sure to post something on Trip Advisor as
well, but I just wanted your office to know how much we valued our
experience today.
Victor was also a skilled and congenial driver.   Thank you so much.

Dear crew of Soweto tour on 13th August,

I hope everyone is well.
Thank you very much for your cooperation for the filming of Soweto. I believe that we have achieved to film a good grasp of life in Soweto as well as its history, considering the short period of time we had. It was broadcast today and I am writing to report you here.
After playing video, I had live broadcast and had some time to speak. I spoke about the nursery school that was built by support of KDR, and to visit there is a great opportunity to see a scene of Soweto.
I also had a great experience of Soweto and it made a good change of my understanding as well as attitude towards the country.
I would like to thank you again, and special thanks to the greatest guide Bongani. You were rocking on TV! Please send my regards to Victor, too. I will receive the DVD shortly so I will send copies to you.
I hope to see you guys again.

The Soweto tour was fantastic, Bongani is a top bloke and the whole day was very enjoyable; it was a real eye-opener even for someone who has spent a lot of time travelling all over SA. It was every bit as rewarding a place to visit as I hoped it would be and I even finished by (almost) beating one of the Shebeen locals at Pool :o)

After 20 years of visiting SA, I love finding out more about its history, and the tour certainly filled in a few blanks, such as the Hector Pieterson story, Mandela's home, what life in squatter camps is like, what life in Soweto generally is like, etc....

I can't imagine a better intro to Soweto and understanding of the past and present...
Continued success and I'm sure you'll see me again on one of your trips .

Dear Nonhlanhla,

Thanks for organising the Tour of Soweto for the Argentinean students, they really seemed to enjoy themselves. I was panicking a bit on Friday when I realized I had not confirmed with you, but you did manage to “pull a rabbit out of the hat” at the last minute. The tour also seems a lot nicer and more organised than the Tour I went on. I was also impressed with the little bit I saw I saw of Bongani. Thx once again.

Regards,

Good Morning Denis -

I would love to share with you our experience with KDR travel and our tour of Soweto. The tour inspired my husband and I to help the edutainer program in South Africa.

My husband and I are in our late 40's and love to travel. I am a school teacher and my husband is a farmer and works in Real Estate. We always plan our trips and try to use local services that benefit local cultures and people as much as possible. That is the philosophy behind sustainable tourism.

This was our first trip to South Africa and we love the country. We stayed overnight in Johannesburg on our way to Kruger National Park. One of the places we wanted to visit was Soweto. I read in Frommers travel guide that the best tour company for Soweto was KDR sports and travel. I booked the tour online before leaving the United States. We requested Bongani Nvoldu after reading he was recommended in the Frommers guide. We enjoyed showing him the article from our book!

The reason we booked with KDR is because we felt it would give us the best feel for the culture of the area. Bonagani was a wonderful tour guide and we are very impressed with his compassion for the people of Soweto. He treated
everyone with respect and they obviously admired him. He has a real concern for their welfare. Part of the tour included going in to the hostels to visit with the people. They all knew Bongani and the kids were excited to
see him. In the first hostel we visited the creche that is located in an edutainer in the middle of the hostel. Pictured below is my husband as this
creche.

Dear Bongani,

I just wanted to thank you so much for giving my 8 guests such a wonderful tour of Soweto on the 26th October. They could not stop talking about it and they were so impressed by your knowledge and by all the information you were able to give them. They really did enjoy it and felt they gained so much from their tour.

Thank you again and carry on with the good work.

With best wishes from Jenny Scheelke
