Joburg is a vibrant city, but always restless, searching for its soul, and that's what makes it an exciting city to live in.

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 14 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!

Note: While most museums are still closed, but I am available to do the following tours: 

Fietas to Fordsburg
Nelson Mandela’s Joburg
Gandhi find himself
Jozi’s old bones talk
Joburg’s heart beat
Newtown
The spruit by bike
Constitution Hill
Suburbs by bike

TESTIMONIALS 

Thank you for a fabulous day of exploring in Joburg. We loved our time with you and the curation of Art Africa, Kim Sacks Gallery and Thunder Walker. We can’t imagine having found all of those opportunities on our own in a day and thoroughly enjoyed the gallerists & curator input as well as your own and a fantastic traditional lunch in such a charming  setting. We very much wanted a unique experience that allowed us the opportunity to combine our interests with history of place and culture and your tour certainly captured all of that. We look forward to sharing your name as a resource for others visiting and send you an enormous hug! 

 

Thank you,
