This was such an amazing tour! BK is a hilarious guide and made the tour so much fun. I got to see modern street art and also the original works from pioneer artists. I also saw some local treasures and info such as the market and a small community garden that is starting. Definitely recommend this tour and guide, plus great communication from Bo leading up to the tour

I did the Joburg Walking Tour with Ivan. It was a lot of fun and he could answer all the questions. Even got to taste some south african beer in the oldest bar or Johannesburg. :)

My family and I loved the walking tour with Honest Travel. The host, Frank was really awesome and we had the bonus of being joined by the hosts tour partner too who also supported the group and kept us updated on our tour. We were a bigger family group so having another person with was a nice bonus. Super friendly, funny and informative - will highly recommend doing a tour with them. We'll definitely use them again for some of the other tours they offer. 5 stars!

Best things to do and see in Johannesburg

Although Johannesburg is not the capital of the South African country, you wouldn’t notice it as its diversity and its densely populated urban metropolis make up for this to make it a truly amazing place to visit. At the southern tip of the African continent, this city enjoys a pleasant climate that makes it perfect for exploring the iconic landmarks and archeological sites that make it so famous. Even though there are traces of humans inhabiting this area for many centuries, the official city of Johannesburg was founded on a small farm where gold was discovered in 1886. Strike gold during your vacation by doing a free walking tour with GuruWalk. 


If you do a free walking tour in Johannesburg, you’ll have the chance to visit the city’s most iconic landmarks and get to see some of its hidden charms. Visit the Apartheid Museum, walk over to Nelson Mandela Square or visit the Mandela House Museum, and then see Constitution Hill, or see the views at the Carlton Centre skyscraper. The Johannesburg Art Gallery is where you can feast your eyes and then you can check out the Maboneng Precinct, a hip neighborhood that has something for everyone. Just outside of the city, you can visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Cradle of Mankind and be amazed.
