- Gift Voucher valid for 2 Participants
Leave your prejudices behind...this guided walking tour is designed to open your eyes to the 'real' Hillbrow and Ponte City neighbourhoods of Jozi, and help you to see things through the eyes of those who know the area best.
Once cited as 'the tallest and grandest urban slum in the world', Hillbrow has long been known for its high population density, crime levels, and 'hijacked' buildings. However, this guided tour of the area seeks to dispel the now outdated myths and help you find a place in your heart for Gauteng's most misunderstood area. Your tour will begin at the famous Ponte Tower where you'll gain exclusive access to an apartment for unrivalled views over Johannesburg, an introduction into the area's infamous past, and an exploration of the city's iconic donut-shaped building. Continuing on your journey of discovery, your guide will lead you through the streets of Hillbrow, and Berea where you'll discover a range of community hotspots and experience the hubbub of activity on Pretoria Street. Your tour even includes a local lunch and a refreshing beer (or soft drink) at a popular Hillbrow shebeen.
The ideal city experience gift for first time visitors to Jo'burg, or those looking to learn more about their home, this guided walking tour uncovers the truth about one of Gauteng's most misunderstood suburbs and opens your eyes to a miraculous inner-city renaissance.
