André guided our group from the Regent Seven Seas Explorer in December 2018. The group consisted of travelers mostly in the 65+ age group (except myself who is 45) who were very well traveled and expecting a high level of service. André was warm, engaging, and informative from the moment we boarded the tour bus. He has excellent knowledge of history and current events in South Africa and was able to give us information on wide variety of topics. I was amazed that he could discuss any topic you asked him: politics, history, food, tribal culture, race relations, healthcare, ect. André was very energetic and kept the group listening and interested as much as possible. André also has very good knowledge of the South African wine farms and was able to recommend nice bottles of wine which was of particular interest to me. I highly recommend André to anyone needing an experienced guide in South Africa!
