Why Downtown?

The Central Business District has a rich history that is often not talked about.

On this tour we will give you reasons why Johannesburg is nicknamed the City Of Gold with close detail to the CBD. We will also discuss the transitions that the area went through and how these changes affects the people.

The way to understand any city is to interact with the people and this tour gives you exactly that; an eye opening experience that will challenge your beliefs and perception of Johannesburg . 

What really happened to the CBD?

The CBD housed some of the richest gold mines and buildings for well known banks such as ABSA,FNB and Standard Bank. It is also home to the Central Magistrate's Court. 

The million dollar question is how did the richest and most promising square mile of the city become the most dangerous and avoided?

This tour will equip you with the knowledge to answer that question confidently
