All these tours can also be booked as private tours on request.


PRIVATE TOURS
Our daily public tours are available as private tours at any time and any day, subject to pre-booking and us having a guide available. Speciality tours are only viable as a private tour for larger groups as the cost would be prohibitive for small groups.

Private tours of 3,5 hours start at R1250 for 2 people, R1750 for 4 people and R330 per extra person if the group comprises more than 4 people (private tours are guided by Charlie Moyo). Any of these tours can also be booked with Gerald Garner as the private guide at a premium rate (R4350) for a group of up to 10 people.

Fees for private tours exclude cost of public transport usage and museum entrance fees.

DIRECTIONS TO THE STARTING POINT
All JoburgPlaces walking tours start at the Gandhi Sculpture on Gandhi Square. Our guides will meet you there at the stipulated time. The building behind the statue where the Kaizer Chiefs shops is, is the Thunder Walker where you will find our Scatterlings Restaurant and Zwipi Underground Bar.

Note that casual parking is NOT AVAILABLE. If you are going to arrive by car and require parking it is essential that you send us your car number plate and arrange this with us so that we can book parking for you.

If you come by metered taxi, Uber or Taxify simply get out in Rissik Street next to Gandhi Square. Walk towards the Gandhi Sculpture on the northern edge of the square. The Kaizer Chiefs shop behind the statue is your landmark.

If you come by Rea Vaya bus, get out at the Library Gardens station and walk towards Rissk Street and then Gandhi Square.

If you come by Gautrain bus from Park Station, get out at the third stop in Marshall Street. Walk east in Marshall until you get Rissik Street, turn left in Rissik Street and Gandhi Square is one block up on the right.

If you come by car:

NOTE THE M2 ELEVATED HIGHWAY HAS BEEN CLOSED IN AN EASTERN AND WESTERN DIRECTION TILL OCTOBER 2019, THEREFORE PLAN YOUR TRIP CAREFULLY!

From the north, take the M1 South and take the Village Road offramp (Selby).

Follow Village Road until the corner of Loveday Street (5th intersection along Village Road)

Turn LEFT into Loveday Street and then RIGHT into Marshall Street (5th intersection along Loveday).

From Marshall Street, turn LEFT into Rissik Street.

Once in Rissik Street, Gandhi Square will be your right. Cross the traffic light where the buses turn to park on the square and BEFORE NANDOS, turn RIGHT at the boom gate into the paved slip-road on the edge of the square (running along Nandos and Pizza Hut).

It will lead you to the entrance of the underground parking in the Metropolitan Building. Look for the sign that says OPH Private Parking – 108 Fox Street. We will have booked parking for you and the guard will have your number plate on the list and direct you to the right parking bay.

NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARK HERE IF YOU HAVE NOT PRE-BOOKED PARKING WITH US.

If you need directions or help on the way to tour phone, text or whatsapp Charlie Moyo on
062 121 6188. As he may be busy with a tour and unable to answer, try a text or whatsapp him. 

NOTE: WITH THE CURRENT HIGHWAY CLOSURES, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE UBER OR TAXIFY, OR GAUTRAIN TO PARK STATION AND THEN A METERED CAB TO GANDHI SQUARE.
