We have used Bruce many times and he is always punctual and professional. He has a big van so from 2-10 people can fit with bags.

Very insightful tour on our first day in South Africa. Bruce, our guide was excellent and provided a lot of information about Soweto and South Africa in general. I'd thoroughly recommend Vhupo and Bruce in particular.
