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, I am available to do the following tours:
Sophiatown's rise and fall
Fietas to Fordsburg
Nelson Mandela’s Joburg
Gandhi find himself
Jozi’s old bones talk
Joburg’s heart beat
The spruit by bike
Suburbs by bike
Livingstone and Burchell in Jozi
