Scheduled tour itinerary:  Johannesburg is a booming, happening city and the area close to City Hall and Newtown Cultural Precinct, which has completely transformed the Market Theatre and surrounds, now forms the heart of urban revival. Visit Museum Africa which records the continent’s past, when the first civilisations thrived. The tour also passes through the Banking district, the Magistrate's Court and the Supreme Court. Visit the “top of Africa” at the Carlton Centre from where you would have endless views over Johannesburg. Drive through some of the most picturesque and avant-garde suburbs in the country before returning to your hotel.

Private tour itinerary:  Drive through the northern suburbs of Saxonwold, Houghton and Parktown, to the hustle and bustle of Hillbrow, home to African immigrants from all over the continent. Stop to visit Constitution Hill, the new home of the Constitutional Court of South Africa (may be closed on public holidays!), which is built on the site of the "Old Fort" that later became a notorious prison. At the Carlton Centre in the heart of downtown Johannesburg, we take the elevator to the "Top of Africa" enclosed viewing deck on the 50th floor (closed on Sunday afternoons). Time permitting, the next stop is the Museum Africa (closed on Mondays!) in the Newtown Cultural Precinct, where a variety of exhibits tell the fascinating story of Johannesburg, from the Iron Age, through the discovery of gold in 1886, right up to the first democratic elections of 1994. From here, continue across the Nelson Mandela Bridge into the business district of Braamfontein, then past the University of the Witwatersrand to Fordsburg with its Oriental Plaza and Mosque. Travel along the elevated M1 or M2 motorways which provide spectacular views of Johannesburg.
