Johannesburg is a buzzing city of cultures, commerce and history. From Gold Mine Camp to the power house of Africa. Explore the city center where Randlords ruled. Iconic Art Deco buildings and informal markets line the busy streets.
The vibrancy of Johannesburg City is part of its charm. There is something happening all of the time; on every street and on every corner!
Just over 100 years ago Johannesburg was a farm with bushveld. Then Gold was discovered - and the chaotic mining camp grew into a world class city in record time. The Randlords built their offices and homes to match their great wealth leaving a legacy of fine examples of Art Deco and colonial style architecture. Unlike many of South Africa’s earliest mining camps, there was something about Johannesburg that had real staying power. Of course, the copious amounts of gold had a pull, but there was certainly more than that. And the city continues to grow. It has seen so much happen and bears many marks left by history. These marks are now part of Johannesburg’s unique sightseeing tourist attractions. Skyscrapers. Fast city life. Hundreds of restaurants,bars and shops, all with their own identity
On this half day tour, we take you to the top attractions Johannesburg has to offer. Some of the areas that our tour visits are Hillbrow, Constitution Hill, Central Johannesburg, Braamfontein and Newtown. We start your introduction to Jozi with View of the impressive 269 metre Telkom Tower, as seen on many postcards of Johannesburg. We then enter the inspiring Constitution Hill – and Court (when not in session). Political activists like Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi were once held here. During a tour inside, you will learn about some of the legal history of Johannesburg. On our way to Newtown, we pass by the longest Southern African Bridge, named Nelson Mandela Bridge. At Mary Fitzgerald Square, you can walk on the Jazz Walk of Fame. We end this tour with a visit to the Carlton Centre, also known as the ‘Top of Africa’. There, a lift will elevate you 50 stories for an amazing and total view over the city. In short, this tour offers you a unique Johannesburg experience at an affordable rate. We can talk for hours about Johannesburg, and we will do this when you are with us! Learn more about Johannesburg.
