 On all Young Earth Tours we look at history and scientific evidence and promote discussion between a young earth and a million years old theory. Most evenings will be spent in discussion. No theory is forced on you and you will be free to decide, based on the evidence. Our primary purpose is to have fun and take home a memorable experience.

All Tours are done in air-conditioned vehicles, with permits and passenger liability.
English, registered and THETA accredited or similar tour guides.
Other languages and specialities can be arranged on request.
Discounted rates for groups of four or more passengers and on combination tours.
Custom made tours organised anywhere in South Africa with National registered tour guides.
A certain portion of the tour price is put in trust to educate and create work opportunities for the disadvantaged.
We try to offer a little more than just the expected on our tours.  
All of the prices quoted are per person with a minimum of 2 persons per tour.
Prices may be changed without notice. Please check all prices prior to booking.
