Learn more about the political history of Johannesburg with a tour of Constitutional Hill, take a lift to the ‘Top of Africa’ at the 50-storey Carlton Centre and experience the vibrant cultural diversity of the people of Jozi.

Johannesburg CBD was once the epicenter of the gold rush era in the late 1800s and is rich in history. Impressive heritage buildings that are now national monuments tell a tale of an inner city that was once the most significant economic hub in Africa. It slipped into decline in the 1990s but extensive urban renewal projects have breathed new life into the central business district.

Itinerary

The City of Johannesburg

Constitutional Hill

After pick-ups, we make our way to Constitutional Hill in Braamfontein for a guided tour of this iconic institution. 

Constitution Hill is a living museum that tells the story of South Africa’s journey to democracy. The site is a former prison and military fort that bears testament to South Africa’s turbulent past. Today, it’s home to the country’s Constitutional Court which endorses the rights of all citizens.

Mandela Bridge and Johannesburg CBD

We cross over the striking Mandela Bridge on our way into Johannesburg CBD. Named in honour of Nelson Mandela, the 284-metre long bridge is the largest cable-stayed bridge in South Africa and links two significant business districts.

Driving over the bridge, you have a good view of the famous Telkom Towers. The decommissioned telecommunications tower was built in 1971 and stands 270 metres tall.

Your guide gives you an orientation tour of Johannesburg, pointing out historic sites and heritage buildings. This includes Newtown Junction, Mary Fitzgerald Square, Gandhi Square and Luthuli House. 

Carlton Centre

We get out in downtown Johannesburg and take a lift up to the top of the impressive Carlton Centre. The 50-storey, 223-metre tall skyscraper and shopping centre is the second-tallest building in Africa. From the ‘Top of Africa’, you have a panoramic view of the city of Johannesburg and the northern suburbs.

After an exciting morning or afternoon in Jozi, your guide drives you back to your accommodation in Johannesburg.

Interesting Tour

We were a group of 7 and took the MoAfrika half day tour of Johannesburg directly from the airport. It was interesting and infornative and we enjoyed going to constitution hill and getting a feel for the history of South Africa and Johannesburg. The guide was good and explained different aspects of Johannesburg as we went around on the minibus

Lovely overview tour

I booked the half-day small group Johannesburg tour and ended up lucking out and having a private guide for the day, as no one else had booked. My guide, Clemence, picked me up right on time and was a safe driver. He was super informative and seemed to tailor his information to my interests. Constitution Hill was excellent, though this is run through the site and not through Mo'Afrika. My tour guide there was outstanding. Clemence also drove me over to Maboneng to see the new arts district & that was very enjoyable. Overall, I really enjoyed the day and it was money well spent. I felt like I got a good overview of JoBurg with a knowledgeable guide.

5 hour GuideTour durch Johannesburg

Cape Town cold not reach me after a 6 week stay, wich Johannesburg did with me, after one day beeing there and after a 5 houre guide tour with Divan from URBAN TOURS. I felt in love with that beautiful city. Thank you for letting me see that City throw your eys. I've seen a City who grows up again to there roots and is going to be a World City. I've been the only guest and thank Urban very much not to cancel that tour! and to pick me up and bring me back to the Hotel.And in addition I've seen again that South Afrika has the most kreativ Artist in the World. I'm here for more 14 days and feel free and safe to go to many different places after that tour. Hope to see you at the bicycle tour to Sowetho again.

A safe way to see & learn about the city!

I traveled to Johannesburg on a business trip and had one day by myself to see some sites. As a young, female solo traveler, I was quite wary about exploring by myself so did some research and came across MoAfrika's half-day tour of Johannesburg. I emailed over the weekend and received a confirmation email straight away telling me I was booked for the tour and could pay on the day (convenient!). I was picked-up promptly around 1pm by my guide, Tsholo and ended up being the only person on the tour that day. He talked me through the itinerary for the day on our way to our first stop which was Constitutional Hill (here, their own tour guide takes over). I cannot praise Tsholo enough!! I really learned a lot and felt very at ease and safe throughout the day- he only let me exit the car in areas he felt were safe. We drove through different areas of the city and I was told about their history and development throughout time. The poverty divide is quite shocking, but Tsholo's positive attitude and outlook for the future is very contagious and really summarises the warmth and friendliness of South Africans. This tour is much recommended for solo travellers who'd like to see a few sites around the city and learn about South Africa from the perspective of a local, in a safe, educational environment.
