Upon collection from your hotel, you will receive a pre-departure briefing
from your personal tour guide before departing for Johannesburg’s inner
city.

En route to our first stop, you’ll get a great view of one of the instantly
recognisable features of the iconic Johannesburg skyline – Hillbrow Tower.
Standing at 269m tall, it was the tallest structure in Africa for 45 years.
We take a turn past the seat of the Constitutional Court and
prison-complex-turned-museum at Constitution Hill before making our way
through the busy streets of Braamfontein – one of the revitalised suburbs
of the city which houses the head offices of some of South Africa’s largest
corporations.

Leaving “Braamies”, we drive across the Nelson Mandela Bridge towards
Jo’burg’s cultural and creative hub, Newtown, where we find Mary Fitzgerald
Square – named after Mary “Pickhandle” Fitzgerald who is widely recognised
as being the first female trade unionist in South Africa’s history. The
Square is home to the Jazz Walk of Fame, which pays homage to 9 of South
Africa’s most influential jazz artists.

Leaving the arts behind us, we head towards the Financial District, where
old colonial architecture rubs shoulders with modern skyscrapers before
making our way to Gandhi Square, which is named after the famous political
activist Mahatma Gandhi, who had strong ties with South Africa. A trip up
to the viewing deck of the Carlton Tower provides you with a 360-degree
bird’s eye view of the city from the viewing deck at the “Top of Africa”.

You end the day off with a visit to the mind-blowing Apartheid Museum where
you will trace South Africa’s tumultuous recent history, from segregation
and struggle to liberation and democracy.

Your guide will return you to your hotel at the end of the tour.
