      Authentic tour totally worth it
      So glad we decided for that tour! The guides made us feel very safe even walking through shady areas of Johannesburg. I totally recommend to at least first do this tour before walking around on your own! An awesome mix of culture, street art, sightseeing and authentic food places.

      Best TOUR in the City of JoBurg!
      Was one of the most educational, and interesting tours I have ever experienced. Ikoh is extremely knowledgeable and knows ALLLL of the history of the city. Kagiso, makes sure you are safe and secure while walking. I highly recommend this tour if you visit JoBurg….it’s an absolute must.

      First Johannesburg experience
      Very informative and interesting tour, where the time just flew past. Eco, the guide, made it an exciting experience. We felt safe with him and could enjoy the trip as well as the neighborhood. The view from the top of one building was magnificent and one of the highlights of the tour!

      Great guide, great tour, great experience
      This was a fantastic walking tour! We learned a lot about the history of the neighborhood and Johannesburg more generally. We got to see a lot of great art, stunning views of the city, and safely wander around the central business district. You definitely need to keep safety in mind while you are in Johannesburg, but you'll be perfectly safe on this tour. I strongly recommend you check it out!

      An amazing tour!
      Amazing tour! Iko is such a good guide. He knows well the community of Maboneng and the artists. I learned a lot and felt safe the whole time. I definitely recommend doing tours with Curiocity, their staff is friendly and very professional.

      Mind-changing experience! This walking tour will let you experience every aspect of the city.
      Mind-changing experience! Fantastic and highly recommendable! We did hear that Johannesburg is rather unsafe so we first thought we might not risk visiting the city. Then, we found this walking tour and decided to do it -- best decision ever! Ikoh, during the tour named "The King of Joburg", showed us all the hidden (and numerous) gems within this vibrant and diverse city. At the same time, we felt completely safe with him and could enjoy the city. So instead of being afraid of the city, we could really learn to know and appreciate all aspects of this very interesting city. The mix of fantastic street art and great style within the less developed parts of the city is mind-blowing. So, Ikoh: You changed our view of the city! Thank you very much for that! All the best!

    Kaiser was a wonderful guide and this tour is well worth it in order to understand the history of the town. Recommend if you have a day spare and would like to learn about Joburg!

    Kaizer was a great charismatic guide, and gave us a good background of the area. Would happily do another tour with him, might even do one tomorrow!

    Hi, we did the Soweto full day tour (650 rand). The ad says that tour includes visits to Mandela house, Desmond Tutu house and Pieterson museum. We specifically asked if the tickets were included and the answer was yes. Well, in fact the tour passes by these 3 places, not really visiting them. We complained to the guide and it seems that it is not the first time somebody complained but the info and the ad has not changed...
    There are other agencies offering a more personalized experience for the same price.
    Really disappointed as we felt really cheated.

    Hello Miguel, We apologise that you felt misguided with the information given and have taken steps to correct this. Our staff are well aware that we do not go inside specific sites as it would be rather time consuming on a full day tour given that we spend a considerate amount of time in the Apartheid Museum. Once again we are sorry for your uncomfortable experience and will do better to improve on our product.
