Una experiencia muy buena, hay que hacerla al llegar a Jhb para conocer al anfitrión y que te de tips de la ciudad, es una ciudad un poco compleja y si la descubres con Sipho te resultará más fácil moverte e ir a diferentes sitios. Por temas de covid las visitas dentro de la ruta estaban cerradas y no las pudimos hacer pero igualmente lo pasamos muy bien.

Our tour guide, Lebo, was an amazing storyteller and an all-round fun person. You will know a little more about South Africa after the tour.

I had a great time with Lebo (one of the hosts/guide who works with Sipho as part of the onedayafrica.com company). From the offset he was very professional and friendly. He used the first minute to find out what my expectations were of the tour and if there was anything specific I wanted to see or do that was not listed, so that he could try and squeeze them in along the route. His historical and current knowledge of Jo’burg was also very good coupled with very good knowledge about the arts (if you like that stuff) and current affairs. We walked along some important landmarks including Mandela’s first law office, Main street, chancellor house, Gandhi square and finished in Maboneng with a meal and drink. Lots of opportunities for pictures if you’d like. I would highly recommend this trip as an insight into the real Jo’burg where you’ll appreciate the architecture, history, hustle and bustle of downtown Jo’burg, especially if like me you are staying in the suburbs of Rosebank/Sandton. I also felt safe, which is always a good thing :) . Go with an open mind and have fun!

Awesome Experience and Must Do when you come to Johannesburg. I had a great time learning about the different things in Johannesburg and all the history. We saw other tours along the way but they did not go deep into the understanding. The guide knew the history and I could tell he was very invested in the area and understood well. We could not take the tour to see all of Joberg because do Covid but the food at the end made up for everything! I absolutely 10/10 recommend.

I really enjoyed the experience, even with the slight drizzle :) I especially enjoyed the food and the careful consideration of the places we went to and the history of the area. I liked the honesty of the tour and the way it flowed and that the journey between locations was effortless so that I hardly noticed the time going by. I enjoyed learning about Joburg from a different perspective and I really appreciated all the effort of Lebo to make the experience unique and special to me (^^,)

Rambo and Tebogo were amazing people. They showed us a side of Johannesburg I never heard of . By the end of our tour , I learned so much about history and had two new friends . Walking around the city was so fun with them and one of the best tours I ever had . They are so happy and friendly and have so much pride in their country and we got to discuss a lot . It’s a day we will talk about a lot . Thank you !!!
