Xoliswa, our tour guide knew every little detail about the city and explained everything with such enthusiasm. I am truly grateful that she was the one introducing me to the secrets and history of the city through the walking tour. In fact, we met afterwards as well. She was smart, friendly, open-minded and fun. Go with her!!!

Had a great time with our tour guide, Nyakallo. Was completely comfortable walking around and learned a lot about the history of the country through the tour! The tour helps to understand the different facets that make up the city of Johannesburg.

Had the pleasure of doing this tour and seeing the Joburg CBD. What a marvel to see the intersection of the old and new South Africa. Our guide was a young lady named Nyakallo and me, being the curious guy I am, had a ton of questions which she did a great job answering. She was very informative yet full... More

Fantastic tour through the old Johannesburg. The guide was amazing and gave a lot of historical background on the buildings in CBD. I recommend the tour to anybody who wants to get to know the real Joburg.

Excellent tour and guide. We had previously done the bus tour through the historical area, but needed more information and a more personal experience. We certainly got this- warts n all.

It was interesting, you could feel the intense energy of the city as you learn about it, and you get to feel the different vibes behind every new corner. Most importantly, you learn about the history of the place... More

Educational .. Very knowledgeable guide, brilliantly designed trajectory, navigating the real Joburg: a juxtaposition of extreme universes, from an abandonned park home to the homeless - providing a serious punch to the senses, through markets where the diversity of hopeful displaced Africa seeks to make a living out of the improbable, through the history of mining, apartheid, culminating in Mandela,...

We did two walking tours, one through the CBD in the morning and the other one through Braamfontein in the afternoon. I loved how our guide, X, connected her own personal story to the history of Joburg/South Africa. Worth every step of the tour. Definitely recommended!
