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 13 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!


It was the third time that we toured Joburg with Lucille and this time it was a rather special tour. Lucille blended two of her portfolio lighthouses - the Gandhi and the Mandela tours.

And that it is absolutely exciting and a real eye opener because, from my point of view, these stories help a lot to develop a deeper understanding not only about Joburg but about South Africa at all.


We admire our guide’s remarkable knowledge about these themes/subjects and we are absolutely grateful for her deep commitment and her personal attitude that always helps to make the history lively and important for the present.
