Dearest Brenda

So sorry I’m so late in sending this e-mail, but the sincerity is great! Thank you so very very much Brenda for all you did as a tour organizer, as a professional guide, as local tour leader and as a human being with real care and perfection. You made it so pleasant to work with you and arrange it all, my friends, Les and Sharon Duncan was so very impressed and apparently the Jacarandas were in bloom for them to see! You went out of your way and normal touring to make this an unforgettable experience for them and you did more than just a ‘job’! Thank you thank you thank you – I am often in South Africa and will be there next year after Sonneblom Films have done a documentary on my life here in the U.S.A. to appear on t.v. in South Africa. I always need a reliable person for transport and help with accommodation. Therefore, I will surely meet you in person in 2015 Thanks again and I will recommend you to everybody I know.

Kind regards

Thank you for your most kind words. Les and Sharon are indeed wonderful people and it was an honour to have them here in South Africa. Here they are enjoying local food at the Bistrot BOER’geoisie Restaurant in Pretoria.

Brenda and Gerhard.






Travelers comments on our tours

We had a wonderful day with Brenda. Especially loved the tour at the Oppenheimer Tower of the Cultural Center. Lunch at Wandies was very good and we got a really good sense of what living in Soweto is like. Thank you, Brenda!


Brenda provided a day that exceeded our expectations. By the end of the day I felt like we had spent the day with a friend and not just someone taking us on a tour. Her knowledge of the area and her education on the history of South Africa in general really added to the experience.


Working with six people and their varied expectations and interests is not easy but Brenda managed to provide a wonderful experience for our group. We spent enough time for everyone at the various sites. I especially enjoyed visiting the Origins Centre and eating at Wandi’s.


Brenda is a true professional. She knew plenty of information about the sites and provided extra background based on her own knowledge and long history in S.A. The day was busy but relaxed and we especially enjoyed the visit to Rivonia and Liliesleaf. Brenda was able to develop a customized tour covering exactly what we wanted to see.


Brenda was amazing! She knows her stuff, and caters for me as a solo traveler. I would highly recommend this tour, but also Brenda as a guide. If I head back to South Africa she will be my first thought! Thanks so much Brenda for an amazing day!


My sister and I felt she was very thoughtful in providing drinks and snacks. She listened to what we were interested in and didn’t rush us at the various stops. We had a good day with her. We would certainly use her again if we ever traveled this way again.


Another Great Tour to go on. Guide Brenda very knowlegeable on many areas. Went to some great places with fantastic views of Johannesburg, went to the Apartheid Museum. Soweto is a pretty amazing place, went to visit Mandela’s first house then a buffet lunch at Wandies. Excellent food, great company. Highly Recommended Tour with Brenda Jean. Thank you very much, fantastic experience. Regards



Absolutely fantastic day well worth the money.Tour guide very friendly and knowlegable looks after you very well and is open to requests. The sanctuary people very friendly Elephants are amazing get to touch walk with and ride the elephants.A lovely meal included at the sanctuary and great views both there and along the way pointed out by guide. Amazing experience Thanks


My brother and I came to South Africa, looking for a excellent tour guide, and the intent to interact and walk with the Elephants. We not only got an excellent tour guide, but also a new friend. She was there early, greeting us at the hotel, but also took us through the city, and explained the area. We not only had opportunity to interact with elephants, but we have many photos from Brenda. We came as strangers, and left as friends! I certainly will call upon her again when I return!


Very well prepared and organized. Itinerary exactly as arranged. Both guide and driver were a pleasure to be with 


Brenda was most accommodating and professional. She was flexible as well as sensitive to our needs. Our trip to the school in Soweto remains one of the highlights of our trip. It was an absolute pleasure meeting Brenda and I would highly recommend her as a guide. She provided us with a great deal of background information to help us better understand what we were seeing. Opa, her driver was also excellent and informative, especially during our trip to Soweto.


Brenda was a replacement for another guide but she and her driver Oepah (I hope I got his name right, if not it sounds like this) did an excellent job. Showed us around all the sights we wanted to see between and in Pretoria/Jo(hannes)burg. And a bit more we were not aware of. Thanks Brenda and Oepah
