Just to let you know that we had a great time on the Mandela Heritage Tour on Friday. Bongani was a super guide. What really stood out for us was the flexibility and passion to make it a great experience even when going over time. Thank you to the whole team: guides and driver for making it a truly great South African experience!

Apologies for taking so long to thank you for a wonderful day. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and please thank Bongani and the others from all our us.
I was particularly impressed with Kliptown. I have been involved with Missionvale Informal Settlement in PE for many many years and actually run Missionvale Australia where we sent regular donations for help educate, feed and medicate nearly 300 Missionvale Children. I have put the 2 organisations in touch with each other, hopefully they can swop ideas
Regards and thanks

Dear Ken, Denis & Ngugi,
Having now returned home following the student South Africa study-tour, I am finally able to catch up on my official 'thank you' to you for making our 2016 course on 'Narratives of Peace & Conflict' a wonderful success.
South Africa was an amazing experience for our students. We had 24 students from three countries and the intercultural learning and interactions and friendships among the three groups of students exceeded my highest expectations. The students were so completely engaged in the course content on peace, conflict and reconciliation that they would be engaged in debates and dialogues with each other (on buses, in restaurants, in their free time) on issues of identity, poverty, urban development, forgiveness, etc. -- it was a professor's dream!
The day-long program you delivered for our group was exceptional. I especially value working with a company that is invested in the community.
All the best,

Denis and Ken, good morning
I’m glad that you were able to look after the Scotch Oakburn lads the way you did. They certainly enjoyed their time with you, particularly the visit to the Kliptown Youth Program. One of the messages I got back read, “Today has been absolutely remarkable, the complete highlight of the entire tour.” Another read, “Your stocks went up in value today. Epic! Best day of the tour (amongst many great days).”

I just wanted to say a big thank you for an amazing experience.
I was very impressed with Ngugi and the tour as a whole.
I've had positive feedback from all who went and each was simulated at their individual levels.
I have a friend who follows politics avidly and has a passion for history and he kept raving about how amazing it was.
For those who just wanted to let their hair down and have a jol there was plenty of that too.
It is one we'll talk about for ages.
Do you have a Facebook page or something I can tag you in our refer friends to who'd want to go on a similar trip?

Good Morning Ken
Thank you for a most enjoyable and informative Mandela Heritage tour. Our Ghanaian visitors were absolutely enthralled at seeing all the sites and museums which tell the story about Nelson Mandela.
Your tour guide Ngugi is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Johannesburg and of course Nelson Mandela's life. He tells a good story with a great sense of humour.
Your vehicle was comfortable and your driver got us around safely. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day.

I just wanted to say thanks for the trip that you organized. Our team really enjoyed it very much. We just wished we did the whole day as the half day was just a bit too short! Ngugi and Thami were good guides (and photographers in the end) as well.
Thanks again, we will tell people about you!

Good morning Ken,
Just a big thank-you for the wonderful tour on Friday. Ngugi was an absolute professional and our staff truly enjoyed the experience.
I will most certainly recommend KDA – and am thinking of doing a smaller more intimate tour with friends soon as well!
Please pass on my thanks to your team – especially Ngugi, but also including Bongani who checked in on us in the late afternoon.

Dear Denis, Ken and Bongani,
My sincere thanks to KDA for providing us with one of the best year-end functions I have ever attended. The tour was professionally conducted, while conveying an atmosphere of friendliness and interest in the tour group. Bongani is exceptionally knowledgeable and entertained our party with anecdotes and facts. He presented the information with just the right mix of humour and compassion for South Africa's difficult history. Well done!
I was completely blown away by the flash mob at the Klipfontein Youth Project! The exuberance and joy was palpable. All involved, from the volunteers to the staff and children, without exception, made our visit there the highlight of the whole day. I felt honoured to be surrounded by such optimism and hope. This experience embodied the true essence of Christmas for me and my staff.
We all left a little more committed to do more, a little more assured of the roles we can play, a little more happy about the future of our children, and a whole lot more emotional.
What an experience! Thank you!
I give my permission for you to use some of the video footage from the flashmob on your website.

Hi Ken/ Bongani
Just want to thank you for a memorable evening out on Saturday
Apologies the bus got back so late, I had not realised the time
Everyone had a blast and I am sure you will see at least some of us back again!
We just wanted to thank you for arranging the Soweto tour for us today at such short notice. Ngugi was a fantastic guide and we saw and learnt a great deal in a short time. We know we have only just 'scratched the surface' of Soweto, but felt our visit will be one of the highlights of our time in South Africa. Our daughter Hannah was particularly touched by the time we spent in Kliptown, and the work being done there is clearly so worthwhile.
We hope your company continues to thrive and we would certainly recommend you to others. Once again, many thanks.

We're back in the US and just wanted to let you know that we had a great day's tour of Joburg and Soweto under the guidance of Ngugi Githuka. We were treated to a customized and thoughtful set of highlights (especially Constitutional Hill), a good overview of the central city, and engaging discussion about Soweto pre-and post-apartheid.
Thanks for arranging a good match-up.
