We learned of the history, architecture, culture, and politics which have lead to the city of today. One of the best and most interesting walking tours we have been on... More

Gerald's walking tour of Johannesburg implies much more than you would expect. It begins with an outstanding talk on the history of the city which brilliantly explains how the city we know and love has become the one that it is in 2016. This is followed by an interesting and surprising walking tour of the city and then a delicious... More

Gerald is a wealth of information - with the tour starting with a photographic tour covering the history of the founding of Jozi. The tour then proceeds walking downtown around key sites with ample opportunities for street photography. It then ends with a lovely lunch at the newly revamped Joziburg Lane. Only downside - is whilst very informative 2 hours... More

It was fantastic to do the tour and change some of the misconceptions of inner Johannesburg. Gerald has a wealth of knowledge and kept everyone entertained. I would recommend this to even local as it bring Johannesburg and its history to life.

I would not have naturally chosen a tour of the fashion district and little Addis but we are so glad we did!!! my interest is always the social realities and changes and nothing seems to illustrate that better than the revival of the fashion district. . . and the Ethiopian sector of the city demonstrates the open and varied and...

Walking Tour with colleagues through CBD. And again, even after 3 times doing this tour, always fascinated about Geralds passion about the city & the information he is sharing about past, presence and what is going on in the near future. This tour is a must for all visitors of Johannesburg (and of course people living in Jozi and its... More

The Regenerated inner city tour was a great way to take another look at an otherwise notorious and feared part of Johannesburg. It was great because Gerald shared his wealth of knowledge about the city and its history and more importantly its rise from the ashes. Joburg indeed has an incredible story and you can see it on the streets... More

Gerald Garner, insider, enthusiast, passionate abut South Africa and Johannesburg in specific. We explored Johannesburg twith him twice in the last months. Walking tour through Newtown, Mining District you dive into the city and the history - Gerald shares a lot of history, and some insights you will not find on any "normal" sightseeing tour. He always links Johannesburg to... More
