We very much enjoyed the tour! It was bit shorter than expected but we didn't mind. Our guide was very accommodating and answered all our questions in a very informative and knowledgeable manner (including the first question about safety in Newtown). He was also fun to be around - we joked a lot, which made the tour even more enjoyable. We learned not only a bit of history but also about some current issues and social culture in Newtown. All in all, we felt safe, comfortable to ask questions and we are satisfied with the tour.

A group of 4 of us were taken around in downtown Joburg by our tour guide Sean. We had a great time, he was very informative and we really enjoyed the stops he took us to. Can't reccomend this your enough as it helped us learn more about the history of the city's diverse background.

I recently went on a fantastic walking tour in the Newton area of Johannesburg, and it was a captivating experience. The tour guide skillfully delved into the area's rich history, offering fascinating insights into its past. The highlight was definitely the stunning street art we encountered along the way, which added an artistic flair to the journey. Moreover, standing outside Nelson Mandela's law office was a powerful moment, as we got to connect with a piece of history firsthand. Overall, the tour was enlightening, visually captivating, and a great way to immerse oneself in the soul of Johannesburg's Newton area. Highly recommended!
