Pretoria, the beautiful jacaranda city is full of many untold stories and on this tour you will discover many.

Here you will enjoy an architectural site of the buildings as well as the beautifully planted gardens giving you a breath taking view. Voortrekker monument in the shape of a big stone is another site worth seeing. It was built to commemorate the Great Trek, the often treacherous journey across the country undertaken by pioneering Boer families who fled the British rule in the Cape Colony in the mid 19th century.
