Directions for JoburgPlaces


Most of our JoburgPlaces tours start at the JoburgPlaces Hub at JSE Newtown.  A confirmation letter with directions will be sent to you when booking.

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS AND DO NOT JUST TYPE IN AN ADDRESS ON YOUR GPS as it may take you right through the middle of town where one-way streets, bus lanes blocking intersections etc can send you on a mad journey of driving in circles! We have also seen that some GPS apps (such as Ways) have the street numbers incorrect.
