    Informative and challenging walking tour - would highly recommend for those hoping for a bit more than just being dropped off by a bus.

    Fabulous tapas and music . Everything about the place was just top notch . Brilliant evening of delicious food , the prawns and wagu steak were my favourites, great wines , cocktails and beers . Fabulous staff and an amazing band and vocalist. I wish I had taken photos but was too in the moment to think out this !

    Leave the suburbs and embrace the vibe of JHB. Those who are looking for a little bit more fun than a fine dining establishment, enjoy a magical evening of storytelling , poetry and amazing food. Dine in the old bank vaults of JHB. One is welcomed by friendly, attentive staff. The storytelling keeps one captivated by the history of JHB, and the food that is served, also captures this history. This is really a chance to experience a truly special part of JHB's history. Jozi is indeed a remarkable place of history, art and humanity. The venue is amazing! A highly recommended outing to do when visiting JHB.

    We went to RSA with Kamaroutes in August 2019, we are more than delighted with the performance of this young local tour operator. Our desires were very well understood and the proposed trip was according to what we wanted. Before, during and after the trip our contact Vanessa was available and listening to us to have a wonderful stay. We strongly recommend Kamaroutes !!

    I have been here with my friends on a saturday night, we danced and drink all night. The djs were great, the location is cool. This is not my favourite zone of the city, pay attention especially if you are a tourist.

    We were invited to a dear friend's wedding reception. The venue with its views are absolutely exquisite. As the evening went on, it just got better and better when the finger snacks were served on the veranda. The evening was topped off with some of the finest food served in Johannesburg by far. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for only the best. Very professional staff, amazing food and a this in a venue with fantastic views.

    I was there on a friday evening and it was very busy. Drinks are rather expensive for Johannesburg. Music was very lound, but ok. My personal opinion - I would not go back there.

    Such a wonderful and memorable experience. We rode the locals bus then walked through the less touristy parts of SOWETO before ending our tour by sampling the traditional fermented beer and food. If you want a personal touch to your time in Johannesburg this is a really great tour to take.

    I have booked transport with Selecta for 20 swimmers from Namibia. Due to the Lockdown that was announced by the President, the competition was cancelled. Selecta has told me they are only going to refund me 60% of my money, and they didn't even provided me with a service. I then was informed they only do payments on Tuesdays. I was promised by Ross yesterday he promise they will make my payment yesterday. Today is Wednesday no payment, and you can't get through to Selecta's offices!

    This cocktail bar / restaurant is a great spot for a post work cocktail (or beer) while looking out over the Modderfontein area. Their food is reasonably priced and of good quality as well. From time to time they have live bands/DJs playing on a Friday evening when it is at its busiest.

    My husband and I took the guided food tour of Joburg and tried amazing meals and drinks on an urban farm, in a fancy restaurant, and in a budget diner. We were so stuffed by the end of the day that we weren't able to eat the last meal and opted for tea instead! And the two of us are HUGE foodies, so it is rare that we turn down a meal. What a great way to get to know the city and experience local culture.
