1. What: People Movers
The Essence of CHOICE TOURS Passenger is that it’s a service that professionally MOVES PEOPLE, with the emphasis on ‘people’ and not ‘numbers’. From point A to point B, often with value added service in between. Vehicles and their drivers/ Driver-guides is our pride; moving passengers our passion !
2. Who: Proud South Africans, by Birth and by Nature
A professional team, humble by nature but arrogant and progressive by service ! A team, that stems from a variety of backgrounds, aiming for ONE outcome: To be the Leaders in our field, in both Expertise and Service.
In collaboration with our Black Empowerment and HDI initiative Service Providers, ‘SKY’, Operations and Marketing are handled by Gerhard de Jager (Business Manager) and Steven Pitchers (Marketing and projects).
Areas of Expertise
APhys Ed, Enviromental Management graduate and national Guide, Gerhard has a reputable 20 years tenure in the Travel and Passenger Transport industry, having treaded his first careful steps as Luxury coach driver. Since, he has built CHOICE TOURS Passenger into a proud, ambitious concern, never losing touch with the road and refusing to give up the precious opportunities to lead a tour. Steven, Tourism Management &, Operation specialist and accredited Tour Guide, the adventurous youngster, is the gentleman with the ethics, charm, enthusiasm, free spirit and deceptively innocent demeanor.
Upon hiring them, our drivers and driver- guides are drilled in Good judgment principals, to be discreet, focus on passenger relationships, looking after passenger needs and to be safe and professional at all times.
3. Where: Countrywide
With Depots and Fleets in Pretoria, Johannesburg and Durban, CHOICE TOURS Passenger elaborately covers most of the major business centres in South Africa. Considering the specialist nature of the industry, we have decided not to establish a depot in Cape Town and have, instead, taken the professional approach of partnership agreements with companies of the same strive and quality control as ours.
4. When: Since 1994
CHOICE TOURS has a proud record, since of almost two decades, having had the nerve, drive and optimism to commence business only a month before the election of the great Nelson Mandela, iconic first President of the New South African Democracy in 1994. CHOICE TOURS Passenger has since gone from strength to strength.
Starting with 2 Combis, progressively growing into a fleet of 3x 7 seater Combis, 3x 15 seater Sprinters and 2x Mercedes Sedans. During times of negatively influencing factors, such as the current strong Rand, we reduce fleet, currently running 2 x 7 seater VW Microbusses , 2 x 13 seater Toyota Quantums and a 6 seater Honda CRV.
Without a single accident/ incident since the start of operation.
5. Why: We can’t wait to hit the Road!
Our Drivers and Driver- guides (these guys and gals are personalities; please call them by name !) itch, upon as little as mention, Wheels rolling across city and countryside, touring, telling, helping, uphill, downhill, taking anything from 3 to 44 seaters gently through hills, valleys, plains and…traffic. We’re walking, talking junkies of South and Southern African routes, landmarks and roads !

Routes : Your itinerary talks; we answer. Your consultant needs advice, we guide !
Beaten Track : On and off; driving on both tar and dirt/ gravel is our business.
