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.

The tour is great...but in the last week of December and first week of January unluckily half of the interesting points are closed... It is a pitty that this is hardly mentioned anywhere...half the city is closed for two weeks and or more.

Very interesting tour. It is also safe as you leave all your belongings in the tour company's office. I am booking this tour for our end-year function and Sethu was very accommodating with my requests. Would definitely recommend.
