Hi there Ian, Many thanks for your very clear and detailed review! Your tour was one of those challenges we sometimes face, a shortened day balanced by less traffic, it being a Saturday! I am glad you spoke about the gold story, it is hard to 'get' Jhb and South Africa (both modern and older SA) without going there. The... More

Chris collected us from our lodgings in J/Burg at 5:30am and took my husband and I on a fascinating 2+ hr drive to Pilanesburg Game Reserve in his 4-wheel drive vehicle. Chris is the most friendly, interesting and knowledgeable guide we had ever encountered. His love and knowledge of the districts we passed through, their geological history etc kept us... More

We arrived in Johannesburg after travelling for two days from Toronto. Chris met us at the airport and introduced us to Joburg. A native himself, he hit all the highlights of the city. Chris doesn't just show you the sights, he has a vast knowledge of SA history as well as pointing out to us all the geology of the... More

We had the chance to discover Johannesburg with Chris Green today. Chris was extremely patient with our seven year old boy. And at the same time, he was infaillible on South African history and the development of Johannesburg. He gave us many different social and architectural perspectives on the city. He also drove us around various distinct places, from the... More

In October we spent 5 days with Chris in the Kimberley area - focusing on wildlife at Mokala NP and Marrick Safari (Game Park). We also had a visit to the Kimberley Mine site, the Museum and an Art Gallery.

We had a full day layover in Johannesburg and got picked up and dropped off at the airport by Chris. It was a fantastic day with Chris.

We have had the good fortune to be able to engage many tour guides in various countries over the years. Chris with Cashan was exceptional. A full day tour of Johannesburg left us feeling educated, inspired, and hopeful.
