The Inner City Urban Hiking Tour combines walking and the use of safe public transport to provide a structured tour of the City’s best kept secrets.
The tour passes some of the City’s most magnificent heritage sites, offering a complete cultural mix and in doing so, exposes parts of the city that most people are reluctant to visit.
Kwa Mai-Mai Traditional Healers Market
One of the oldest markets in Johannesburg. Once an old horse stable, now houses over 176 market stall units, with traditional medicines, African attire,beaded items,artefacts, walking sticks and craft works. A truly genuine place to buy souvenirs to take back home.
We visit the largest second hand bookstore in the Southern hemisphere. There are books stacked everywhere in this 8 story building, plus LPs, maps, porcelain & postcards.
The Carlton Centre is a skyscraper and shopping centre located in downtown Johannesburg. At 222.5 metres, it has been the tallest building in Africa for 38 years. A viewing deck on the 50th floor offers you unprecedented views of Johannesburg.
In the 1950s, Mandela & Tambo Attorneys operated out of the humble three-storey Chancellor House building in Johannesburg. Recently restored and refurbished, the once derelict offices at the corner of Fox and Gerard Sekoto streets once again convey the spirit of Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and the freedom struggle.
