    The tour was great and our guide, Neo, was a pro. We enjoyed it very much! The tour was well-paced, covered the basics of Soweto and its history.

    Had a great walking tour with Welile. I did a morning tour and was the only person that booked so it became a private tour unintentionally. Welile was very informative and engaging while showing me all that Soweto has to offer. I walked away with more knowledge of the history of Soweto and also enjoyed the lunch provided. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the cultural side of Jo'burg.

    I went on the Johannesburg walking tour with Mulalo and would highly recommend for anyone considering! He was extremely knowledgeable on past and current events. I was able to gain a deep insight on the culture and history of South Africa. He was also extremely friendly and relatable making the tour fun as well. You can tell they are passionate about giving individuals a in depth and authentic experience

    Nokia did an amazing job at showing us the beautiful art that was in the Maboneng precinct. I had never seen such street art before. The food was great too. Make sure to come hungry!

    I had a wonderful time in this tour. Our guide, Mulalo, was the perfect guide for this tour.

    he just not showed us the neighborhood and it's wonderful street art but also introduced us to the culture, history, and people.

    amazing experience. highly recommend.

    If you have plans to visit Johannesburg, South Africa please reach out to Nkuli Shelembe for a guided tour! He was our guide in May 2024 and was both knowledgeable and proud of his community. We couldn't have imagined navigating our way around Jo'burg, touring the areas of Soweto, President Mandela's home or having lunch at a traditional South African restaurant by ourselves. I smile now at how patient he was while we asked many, many questions along the way. It was our first stop of 4 countries on the continent for our holiday and he was the perfect person for us to spend time with during our stay in Johannesburg. Thank you, Nkuli!

    I had read about JoburgPlaces (Charlie Moyo) in a NYT article (36 hours in Johannesburg). After doing some additional research, I booked 2 walking tours while in Johannesburg, Atonishing Marshalltown Tour and Soweto by bus. It was a great call. I learned so much from Charlie as we walked around Joburg. My favorite was walking inside the prior Johannesburg Stock Market and then seeing where Mandela/Tambo law offices were located (across street from the shadow boxing statue of Mandela). We then met our driver for the tour to Soweto. Originally, I was going to just do the walking tour, but Charlie convinced me a visit to Joburg without visiting Soweto would miss out on the story of Apartheid South Africa; Charlie was 100% correct.

    The bottom line, if you are looking for a full day of meaningful, informative and entertaining insights about South Africa and Johannesburg in particular, you owe it to yourself to reach out to Charlie and confirm a booking. I am so glad I did, a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Charlie.

    The trip is amazing and we have a chance to get familiar with the history of Hillbrow. I would like to pay gratitude to tour guide Delight who provides us an in-depth explanation about the culture and history of Hillbrow. If you would opt for direct pick-up service at your hotel, you could also approach the tour directly for details.

    Gilda was an outstanding and knowledgeable guide. We had a great time wandering around the old parts of Jo'berg. Great variety of wonderful food we sampled. Highly recommend this tour. Suggestion... bring napkins or moist towelettes to clean up between samples.
