Alex and I were the first to experience Evan’s three day tour. We have covered the Anglo Zulu War, the Groot Trek and the Anglo Boer War, and visited several museums and battlefields. The tree days gave us a thorough understanding of these wars and battles. We were immersed into it having the background, strategy and individual tales. Evan’s style is very special and his knowledge amazing!

I’ve never been taught at school about any of the wars that Evan guided us through. The way in which he tells how the battles panned out is like a story, making you want to hear more about what happened. The amount of detail he puts into the stories make the stories feel compelling rather that linear. Thank you for making the tour so special for my father and I.

We met last week when you spent the day with both Steph and myself guiding us around the battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift. On behalf of both of us, I really would like to thank you for such an amazing and interesting day. Your passion for history and knowledge is quite incredible.

Furthermore, you really are a smashing chap! Thank you again for taking us and giving us such a wonderful tour.

Mark & Steph

A thoroughly impressive and detailed journey through the battles of iSandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. Evan’s commentary and detailed knowledge was impressive throughout. As a soldier for 38 years myself, I very much appreciated his understanding and lively way of delivering such an important story.

Hi Evan,
This is just a note from the Durban Early Car Club to say thank you so much for being our tour guide.
Your knowledge of the area was amazing and I even wondered for a moment if you had taken part in some of the battles from the way you described them!! The talks you shared at Blood River and Talana gave us huge insight into the areas and made us realize how rich this area is in history and what a heritage we are part of.
This was a highlight of our trip. Many Thanks once again from all at the DECC!

This a brilliantly entertaining, well researched tour. Evan has clearly spent many years learning his trade. Brought history to life in a personal human content. Many thanks Evan – and may your flowers continue to bloom!

John and Jeanie RaineyBaltimore, Maryland, USA

We have had a great day, enjoyed every minute. Excellent knowledge of events, really bought to life by the “story” telling. Evan was very enthusiastic, and the detail excellent. Thank you very much, a boyhood story come to life.

Gerry and Pauline HallDunfermline, Scotland, UK

Very informative, so interesting, an awesome day. Thank you Evan, it was wonderful – it brought it all alive.

Ann and Paul DaviesWales, UK

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone considering a visit. More than likely, as children we read about the battles against the Boers and Zulus. Evan’s guiding skills brings the battlefields to life, and this makes all the difference. Nothing is too much for you, you certainly go the extra mile.

Gordon Guy

A day full of awe, inspiration, sadness and courage, skillfully narrated and vividly envisioned by a gentleman whose knowledge and passion in the subject is clearly second -to-none. Our gratitude to you is unending. Thank you Evan.
