Like all people who are passionate about the City, those who live and work there, we know that there are endless possibilities that exist for exploring the CBD. The City offers spaces and places that are full of charm, interest and history.

We had booked tickets for Sunday 22 September 2019. We arrived at the meeting point 20 minutes early to find no one there. We tried calling the number on the website and no one answered. We waited another 30 minutes and then left. If it was cancelled we received no notification. Don't waste your time or money!!

Loved this tour! Jazz (our tour guide) was excellent - he knew a lot about the city’s history as well as current developments that affect it and was passionate about sharing that knowledge. The pace of the tour was just right and I feel like I got a good feel for the city that I definitely wouldn’t have without knowing anyone from Johannesburg. Even then, there were locals in my tour and it seemed like it was interesting and rewarding for them as well. The street art along the way was another highlight of the tour.

We were toured around by Bones. He was impressive in his knowledge of Johannesburg and had a passion for his city. The main thrust of his tour is that with good precaution Johannesburg is a safe and vibrant city to be enjoyed. Do this tour if only to put to bed some of your preconceptions of what is a diverse and culturally rich city.
