I was a bit nervous being in the township area, but Thabo made my father and I feel very safe. He is super friendly and very knowledgeable about the entire area and we thoroughly enjoyed it

Thabo was an exceptional tour guide. We’ve been doing these tours all around the world, and he went above and beyond. He was knowledgeable, patient and friendly. We were over an hour and a half late for the tour and he still took us around and was so friendly. We also learned so much about the local history and culture . Don’t miss this tour - you won’t regret it!

Thabo is fantastic! We're geography teachers in Brazil and we learned a lot from him! He took us around the main points of Soweto, he knows everyone, he's friendly and has a lot of affection.

A great tour I would recommend to everyone that comes to Johannesburg. We felt safe and even took a taxi. You get to walk an area which you wouldn't by yourself and in addition a lot of important information about the daily life in a township and about history.

Thabo is a very gentle person. Even though we arrived late, he managed to put us in the tour. Also we have to leave the car in the middle of the walk and he went back all the way to the car to help us get the car. We recommend Thabo!

We booked the 4 hour tour and got so much more. Thabo was patient, kind, knowledgeable and flexible. He based the tour around what we wanted along side the must sees. We felt we truly got a glimpse of behind the usual tourist experience. We do not hesitate in recommending Thabo and we’re pretty sure you will get a tour that exceeds expectations.

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.


A great way to get to know which tour is best for your interests is by reading up on the reviews and ratings about both the route and the tour guide in Johannesburg posted by other tourists on the GuruWalk platform. These tours are available in different languages and are also scheduled in the morning, afternoon, and evening.
