Hi Ken

Just wanted to say that Bongani was great on Sunday’s Soweto Tour. The tour was fascinating and he judged our group just right! – not too much information that we couldn’t take it all in, but enough for us to really understand what life in Soweto was/is like.

Kind regards

Amazing! a mind blowing tour. Thank you Mike!

Reading about Johannesburg you easily get an idea that it is all unsafe. Our experience, being a middle age couple from Europe, is the opposite. Yes the inequality is there, great richness and great poverty. And you need to be aware, as you would in any great city. We booked this tour via the Internet, not knowing what to expect - and it turned out to be so much more than our expectations.

Fantastic Mike made the tour to be an oriented tour to meet our curiosity of the country and the people. What an experience! All the senses where there, so rewarding! We met these adorable children and fantastic volunteers in the poorest part ot Soweto. It makes one humble. We passed som fantastic museums and we ended our day in CBD. Fantastic! so vibrant. We felt so welcomed, Everyone was so warm and friendly. And Mike! a cliff when on a tour with this outstanding company. This was a life time lasting tour and Big Mike made it possible.

Thank you for this amazing day! All the best for you all.

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

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,

Hi Ken,

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?

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.

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.

Dear Ken

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.
