Johannesburg: a metropolis that rose out of a tented, gold-rush mining camp and transformed itself into the major commercial hub of Southern Africa over a 125 year period.
It was at the centre during our political upheaval from oligarch to democracy. It landed in the gutters and once again is rising, out of the euro-centric remains, to become a truly South African city.
Join us in exploring the exciting new developments; the regeneration of the old; the merging of the various cultures; the hustle and bustle of a people seeking their fortunes; the historical; the ever-changing face of a city which is representative of the people and their spirit.
Whether we choose to do it on foot, bicycle or in a car, the city is an exciting melting pot of experiences.
Half day and full day tours are available. Let us know your specific interests and we will develop a tour that will enhance your experience of South Africa.
