City Center Free Tour

Tour information

Come join a tour of Johannesburg city centre where the ghost skyscrapers hover over an ocean of African traders and mini bus taxis. Walk downtown Joburg as we tell you the story of the different eras in time and show you historical landmarks, such as the Chancellor House where Mandela worked as a lawyer in his younger days, the Beautiful Victorian Style Post Office or the buzzing Diagonal Street where we might enjoy a corn on the cob or visit an old herbal shop. We will share some of our personal anecdotes from our lives in and around Joburg and we might even show you a sneaky old bar where you can enjoy a beer after the tour.

This tour includes:

Professional guide — Johannesburg city centre — Historical periods
