Jozi Tours & Tales

For 12 years I researched and wrote about Joburg’s history and heritage,

for the Joburg city website.

I bring that wealth of knowledge to my tours.

I'll tell you what Hector Pieterson’s mother and sister told me in interviews,

or Mr Kapitan of Kapitan’s, Madiba’s favourite restaurant in the 1950s,

or Baby Jake Matlala, or Tsietsi Mashinini's mother and brother. .


I offer 10 tours.

Join me, and hear intriguing tales,

listen to music of greats like Miriam Makeba and Dolly Rathebe,

or the words of Don Mattera, Bloke Modisane and Nat Nakasa, and so much more!


Thank you, Lucille, for an unforgettable trip. You took us to places we would never visit. Places that had a lot of history. Thank you for sharing your great knowledge of the history of Johannesburg.
