Established in 1996, Yates Tours is an Afrocentric travel company specializing in cultural and heritage tours to select destinations.




“South Africa… you are the best!! My group, consisting of 45 tourists
from Texas, Louisiana, Ohio, and Mississippi, had the opportunity to visit
South Africa in November 2014. Despite the Ebola outbreak scare and our
misconceptions about the virus and taking this trip, our fears were calmed
through the professionalism and support provided by the SA staff of Yates

We recommend anyone wanting to travel to SA…do it! We have no regrets and
never, ever thought about Ebola , as it is not in that country.
Matter-of-fact, we look forward with great anticipation to returning in the
very near future and continuing our exploration of this country’s rich
history. Thanks Craig, Diane, and Greg for our South African experience.”
