Or Jozi, as the locals call it.

I’ll bet you’re in for a pleasant surprise!  Welcome to our vibrant, exhilarating, broken-but-beautiful city with its short, rich history, people of every colour and creed, plenty of trees and outdoor spaces, museums, galleries, shops and restaurants – and a buzzing night life, too.

As for our guide, Sarah in Joburg, SHE WAS FANTASTIC!!! The best ever. We got to learn about the fascinating history of this city, visit some of the neighborhoods most visitors would never get to see, enjoy art of all kinds, wonderful food, and the moving story of the country’s changes there on Constitution Hill. I can’t thank you enough.

Thank you for an interesting and oh so enlightening tour. I only had a sketchy history of South Africa and its troubles but now I have a much better knowledge of it. What I found astounding is where it stands now. Ok, it has a long way to go, but I feel there is much hope for a country based on such a sound and fair constitution. You were so passionate about it, and I’m sure that there many like-minded people. The UK feels so stale and morally threadbare in comparison. Thank you for giving me a sound background to the country I’m about to explore.

Thanks so much for the most wonderful day, Sarah. The tour was just fabulous and truly inspiring. The team just loved it. Really couldn’t have asked for a more successful day. Your wealth of knowledge and wonderful, fun and relaxed management of the day made it so worthwhile and unbelievably special. Can’t thank you enough.

Thank you SO much for such a stunning walk on Saturday. I loved it. I felt quite uplifted afterwards with the possibilities that exist. With some luck on our side hopefully things will continue to take root and happen there. So wonderful to see it so clean too.

Sarah is a vibrant guide; she brings an interesting angle and research to every site. She loves the art aspect, which brings new insight to the historical aspect. An absolute gem; a tour with Sarah is poignant, informative and uplifting all at once.

In November we took our group of about 10 on the Newtown Walking Tour with Sarah from Joburg 360. Well, it turned out to be the most awesome day. We are all South Africans who were gobsmacked at the history and the way Sarah presents it in a user-friendly fashion. The Market Theatre, the Rand Club, the statues of Walter and Albertina Sisulu and so much more beside. When you stand in Gandhi Square and hear his involvement followed by a lunch in an old building you drive home so proud to be South African and richer for sharing in the complex development of what remains a great African city. Whoever does this walk will be rewarded with a sense of appreciation of the development of a city so interwoven with cultural diversity and beauty despite years of intolerance and political interference.
