Embark on a walking tour in Johannesburg to discover the beating heart of this South African metropolis. Home to the Rainbow Nation, this fast-paced city combines the best of the new South Africa with the country’s rich cultural history, and a great way to discover it all is by foot.

The walking tour takes you through the key sights of multicultural Johannesburg. Set off from the heights of the Carlton Centre, passing through Main Street Mall and Gandhi Square on your way to Newtown.

Discover the best of this vibrant precinct, from Mary Fitzgerald Square to Museum Africa, before ending the day with a cold brew and lunch at the SAB World of Beer.

Itinerary

For your Johannesburg Walking Tour you will be collected from your hotel in the morning. An English-speaking guide will go with you on this excursion.

The adventure starts at the Carlton Centre in downtown Johannesburg. At 223 metres (732 feet) it is the tallest office building in Africa. You’ll ascend to the 50th floor to see stunning views of the city.

Back at ground level, your guide will lead you down streets lined with both historic and new buildings. Stroll along Main Street Mall where the architecture resembles old mining buildings – a tribute to the country’s mining heritage. Stop by Gandhi Square to see the artwork celebrating Joburg’s multicultural roots, before heading to the vibrant Newtown precinct. This area is one of the city’s most exciting regions, so soak it all up while visiting some of the iconic sights.

Start off at Mary Fitzgerald Square, one of the last colonial compounds, and now home to the Workers’ Library and Museum. Get a history lesson at Museum Africa to learn about the culture of Africa’s indigenous people before stopping to admire its collection of Pre-Raphaelite and Impressionist paintings.

Move on to Market Theatre, now housed in the old fruit and vegetable market, which remains one of Africa’s most important cultural centers.

Change pace with a visit to the SAB World of Beer to learn about brewing in South Africa. It was thanks to the SAB’s multi-million rand investment into this area that the restoration of the Newtown precinct has been so successful. After a tour that looks at the history of this much-loved amber liquid, sample some of the wares on offer by enjoying a cold one in the Tap Room.

The Tap Room is a great place for lunch (included) and offers splendid views of the city. You can choose from a variety of light dishes on the a la carte menu. Beer with the meal is payable direct but you will be given two drink vouchers redeemable at the Tap Room or Bar Snacks after the tour.

At the end of the tour you will be dropped back at your hotel.
