Meet us every single day outside Park Station for our free City Walks in the City Centre and Braamfontein. The tours are between 1.5 and 2 hours and they all work on tips alone. Find us outside the Station next to Burger King on side that faces Wolmarans Street. Look out for our Green Umbrellas - they will be up 20 minutes before starting time. The tour leaves on time, every time.

Joburg is grossly underestimated as a touristic destination: since I moved here in 2016, I've discovered more and more cool places. The Joburg free Walking Tours are the best way to get to know CBD and Braamfontein
