  • As a tour leader I have been there often with my guests from Denmark. This time one of my guests accidentally knocked over one of the many, many figures in a very jammed shop! The owner went ballistic, not only demanded the guest pay, but was also very rude, and even called the police! The police were very nice and diplomatic, but my guest, a nice elderly gentleman, chose to pay half the price, out of embarrasment! Even if I come here 3 times a year with a full bus, I will never again let any of my guests into this shop! Watch out!!!
  • Great selection of small souvenirs and bigger memories of your time in SA. Hardy is a lovely guy who is happy to let you wander round his large store.
