A fascinating tour of a unique building, with expert local guide Delight who had all the facts and history at his fingertips. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic time. The tour is so well organised. As we drove into Lily Avenue towards the Ponte's blue gate, a guard signed us in. I gave our tour guide a ring and he met us at the parking lot. The tour was really insightful. Sfiso is an excellent guide. This has been my third time at the Ponte. I love coming back to this special space that is is doing so much for its community.

A fantastic insight into one of Joburg's most famous buildings and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guide Delight was informative, engaging, and personable, and had a heap of information and stories on the Tower and the surrounding neighborhood of Hillbrow, where he grew up. Great view and complementary drink from the 51st floor of the tower. As an added benefit, profits from the tours are used to fund DlalaNje's activities with the youth of the local community, including cultural, artistic, and educational initiatives. A definite recommendation!

if one is interested in architecture ponte tower is an incredible place and a very nice and friendly team who helped me much, as I arrived on very short notice.

Like their activities with kids from the neighbourhood very much - such a friendly atmosphere!

What a wonderful, interactive, and deeply informative tour of one of the most-misunderstood and enigmatic spaces in Jo'burg. (And even the country as a whole, I'd venture). From Hillbrow's history to a thirst-quenching zamalek quart to the sublime maws of Ponte: this experience is a must. Ngiyabonga, julle!

This is something everyone has to do when they come to Johannesburg, this part of the city is often not seen. The knowledgeable guides make the experience even more special.

Such a fascinating look into the building that dominates the skyline of Joburg! I was especially blown away by the views — to outside and in! I also loved getting to know the Dlala Nje team — their mission and activism is incredible.

Learn about a piece of Johannesburg history. A fascinating story, both from a social as well as an architectural point of view. The guide was super friendly, the tour most interesting, and the views over the city breathtaking. Well worth a visit!

The This is Hillbrow tour was amazing, specifically to see how a once notorious inner city area is being upgraded block by block.
The tour guides were professional and knowledgeable and there were no safety concerns at all.
I would recommend doing this tour even for local South Africans, Hîlbrow today is not the stereotype of a decayed inner city area.
Having done the amazing Ponte tour before I’m looking forward to do the other tours too!
Cudo’s to Dlala Nje for making these experiences available.

Wonderful, wonderful experience. I deeply empathize with their mission of fighting prejudice, and I am so glad that I got to be part of it. The tour was very informative, and our guides were very lovely people to chat with. The lunch in the Ponte Tower was one of the most memorable things we've experienced in South Africa. Totally recommend it to anyone!
