Reviews from our community

The TSTMKRS South Africa 2018 trip was absolutely AMAZING. Ten days in both Johannesburg and Cape Town learning about the People, CUlture, and Experience of South Africa from a Black perspective with an ALL BLACK tour group and guides was an experience worth every penny. I will be returning in 2019 and I will be bringing friends with me. If you see a TSTMKRS or TasteMakersAfrica BOOK it ASAP. We all in the group met as strangers on Day 1 but left as Family on the last day. Almost a month after the trip we are still all keeping in touch with each other. The Mandela House, Apartheid Museum, Local Food, Local Shopping, The Marketplaces, Boulder Beach, Simons Town, Robben Island, The Cape Town Winery Tours all FANTASTIC.

Lovely rooftop experience. Great time to reset and recharge. The tea was lovely, the conversation uplifting and the yoga was a real work out for the mind body and soul. Would take another class with Yvette anytime.
