JoburgPlaces, lead by Charlie Moyo, is famous for its in-depth knowledge of the city and detailed storytelling. Our tours do not entail merely walking past landmarks and pointing out attractions. Instead we provide you with context to understand the history as well as the contemporary culture of the city.

We offer a wide variety of tours:
Zero series: short Welcome Joburg two-hour introductory walks.
One series: four-hour or longer, comprehensive walking tours
Two series: longer, comprehensive Joburg driving tours.
Three series: longer, extensive Soweto driving tours.

In addition we offer customized storytelling lunches/dinners, city immersions and events.

The details are listed on this site –  just scroll through the menu tabs.

We are looking forward to hosting you soon!

or a whatsapp to +27 (0) 82 894 5216.

Please do not phone as we are mostly busy hosting guests.
Send a message and we will contact you as soon as is possible.

We will respond to your booking request and provide an online payment link for you to pay by bank card to secure the booking.

Guests participate in all JoburgPlaces tours at their own risk. Neither JoburgPlaces, nor its guides, accept any responsibility whatsoever for any injury, accident or death that may occur while participating in a JoburgPlaces tour, whether in a public or a private space.

A tour booking is only secured upon payment.

Provisional bookings will automatically be cancelled if not paid within 48 hours from making a booking.

Bookings cannot be cancelled once paid for any reason whatsoever and no refunds will be offered for cancelled bookings.

Bookings can be postponed to another date if postponed more than 30 days in advance of the booked date. However, bookings cannot be postponed for any reason whatsoever within 30 days of the tour date, as we would lose the opportunity to take another booking for that slot.

We will stipulate the starting point for your tour in your booking confirmation letter. Most (but not all) tours start inside the JSE Newtown building (cnr Pritchard & Diagonal streets).

For private tour bookings, it is possible to arrange pick up and drop off from your hotel or accommodation, possibly for an additional fee, depending on location.
