INNER CITY WALKING TOURS

Get onto them streets

Our biggest passion, without a doubt is the Johannesburg Inner City. When we started, we established ourselves as the first full-time Inner City Tour Operator.

 

We love the people, streets, buildings, history, art and future of Johannesburg. We believe in our city and aim on a daily basis to promote it as a major tourism destination, support its small businesses and provide you, our clients with fun, professional and unforgettable experiences, tours and events.

We feel that the best way to explore and really experience the city is on foot.

We offer bespoke, tailored tours to meet your specific requirements, so tell us what your interests or bucket list items are, and we will make it happen.

Joburg day tours

You're ours for the day

Peaked your interest with our Joburg Inner City Walking Tours? Why not book us for the day with our bespoke, tailor made experiences? Tell us your interests, wants and needs, and we will create an itinerary just for you... 

What tickles your fancy? What about a day tour of political and historical sites across Gauteng, like Constitution Hill, Mandela House, Liliesleaf Farm, the Apartheid Museum in Joburg, or the Voortrekker Monument or Melrose House in Pretoria to name just a few.

 

What about an archaeological tour of the Cradle of Humankind focused on Sterkfontein Caves and Maropeng, or the Origins Centre at Wits University. 

Like to look at pretty things, we could show you the gritty hidden gems of the graffiti and street art scene, the city's public art, or if you prefer, Joburg's world class contemporary art galleries.

Or if your preference is to drop it like its hot, we know all the best spots to spend that hard earned cash. Artisanal markets in the inner city, or high-end shopping in the richest square mile in Africa, we got you covered. 

 

grafitti tours

Look how pretty

The Joburg Inner City is fast becoming a graffiti and street art destination. With exceptional local talent, and murals and pieces by world renowned artists like Shepard Fairey, ABOVE, Vhils, and Faith47, it's no surprise.

We are passionate, and I mean passionate, about urban art and its importance in our city. Let us share this passion with you.

Our graffiti and street art tours are an awesome way to explore Joburg. Not only do you get some eye candy, but we drop some knowledge too,  delving into the psyche of the graffiti culture, the history of the movement locally and internationally, and the major players and top artists using Mzansi as their canvas. For those big fans looking for something extra-special, why not book a tour led by one of Joburg's top graffiti artists?

 

Let us show you why graffiti and street art are vital forms of expression in our city, all while discovering the beautiful art that snakes its way across its walls. Sometimes, in the most unexpected places. 

 

Our urban art tours are focussed around Braamfontein, Maboneng, Newtown and Westdene. And if you'd like a private graffiti workshop, contact our friends over at “The Talking Vandal”

Lets talk to the people

We Love Soweto and we want locals and international visitors to experience this wonderful part of Jozi.

 

With a rich culture and political history, there is so much to learn and see! All our tours aim to honour Soweto and portray it realistically and positively.

On booking a Soweto tour with us, we will discuss your options, but themes we will cover are:

We can also include a traditional meal at one of Soweto’s top restaurants.

Come and explore this unique part of Joburg with us, you won't regret it.

Leave the formalities at the office

We count many leading South African and international companies as regular and repeat clients. Lets be honest, a day in Joburg with us beats a day in the office.

Services we offer to corporates:

  • Taking care of your international clients and staff during their stay in Johannesburg

  • Providing breakaway sessions or tours during conferences and meetings 

  • Tours and experiences which are very popular as small team builds

scholarly offering

Its time for some teachings

We offer educational tours of the Johannesburg Inner City based on the South African School curriculum.

 

Concentrating on geography, history and art, we cover the hot topics. That being said, we have also created programmes for a number of additional subjects including drama and business studies. 

 

Have something specific in mind, we will cater to your needs as an educator and create an itinerary focusing on your themes and desired learning outcomes.

 

This is one of our most popular products and we love working with learners of all ages: from Grade 11- and 12-day long Geography field trips through the Inner City to a shorter graffiti and street art tour for Grade 1’s and pre-schoolers, and just about anything in-between.

 

We also do numerous tours for university groups, local and international, themed along their chosen research topic.
