My wife and I recently had the pleasure of spending the day with Howard, who is by far the best and most knowledgeable guide we have ever had on any trip, anywhere in the world (and there have been some great ones). Polymathic, passionate, facts-based...More

Howard, the guide has a wealth of knowledge on Johannesburg and of the social and political history of South Africa. His knowledge of the settlement of SA was extensive.

Hello robinT578EZ, it's Howard here. Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been back-to back for a while. Thank you for your kind review. You are amongst the the few (relatively speaking) who have spent enough time in Jozi, Pretoria and the Cradle of Humankind...More
As a massive Egyptology fan and a bit of a history buff, I was curious, excited and a little unsure about going on a tour to look at human fossils!!
When we arrived at the Cradle Restaurant in the Cradle of Humankind, we were met...More

Hello Jennifer G, thank you for your kind review. The Malapa Tour does challenge one's concept of time. Egyptology offers names and personalities around which one can imagine the life and times of people that lived thousands of years ago. When we look at fossils...More
The Malapa tour with Howard was a life changing experience. Howard has an excellent knowledge of the area as well as the plants, animals, birds, trees, flowers, grasslands and the geological formation of the Highveld. It is an unbelievably beautiful area and everyone should experience...More

I booked a Soweto/Johannesburg tour with Howard Geach. Howard's understanding of history, geology, geography, etc. provided an insightful backdrop to Soweto and Jburg. I had some incorrect preconceived ideas about this area--especially Soweto. Howard's tour showed me some amazingly vibrant and upbeat sites as well...More

Hello pearlfrancis thank you so much for your kind words. Jozi (local jargon for Johannesburg and Soweto) is a most intriguing place, even for me as a lifelong resident. It is filled with contrasts and contradictions, uplifting and inspirational places and people living almost cheek...More
This tour was probably the most interesting 8 hours I've spent in the past 10 years.
Billed as a Joburg and Soweto tour, this was so much more. Howard, our guide, delved into the cultures, the economics, the politics, the geology, and of course the...More

Hello Carolinehf59 and thank you for your kind review of your Parys day trip. Parys is indeed a favoured weekend destination for Jo'burgers wishing to enjoy timeout from city life. It is close enough for a day trip, but far enough to feel you're really...More
