The best of Jozi can be tricky to find on your own. Enlist the help of a local guide on this Johannesburg tour that side steps the usual spots and embraces things like art, architecture, culture, history, and a traditional healers market.

Think you can figure it out on your own? Think again. This Johannesburg walking tour is the best way to truly see Jo'burg like a local, by discovering the beating heart of this South African metropolis.

Home to the Rainbow Nation, this fast-paced city combines the best of the new South Africa with the country’s rich cultural history, and a great way to discover it all is by foot.

Setting off from Ghandi Square, we’ll take in the impressive statue of a youthful Gandhi and artwork celebrating Jo’burg’s multicultural roots, before moving to the base of the Carlton Centre. We’ll head up to the 50th floor to soak up the views and get the lay of the land before hitting the pavements, strolling down streets lined with both historic and modern buildings.

We’ll hop in a local taxi to take us to the Mai Mai Traditional Healers Market. Once an old horse stable, the market now houses over 176 stalls carrying traditional medicines, African attire, beadwork, artefacts, walking sticks, and local crafts. It is a truly genuine place to support local artisans, heal physical or spiritual woes, and find something special to take back home.    

After exploring the market, we’ll hit Main Street to experience the atmosphere of daily life in Johannesburg. We’ll set our compass back to Ghandi Square where you’ll get local recommendations for your guide before being transferred back to your hotel.

“I was the only person on the tour which was a shame, but it did mean that I got the undivided attention of a very knowledgeable guide. There's not an awful lot to see in downtown Johannesburg to be honest, so I could have probably done this by myself, but I felt safe with a local guide.”
