Walking Tours of Johannesburg's Inner City

Experience the people, sounds, smells, tastes and culture of the city of Johannesburg and Soweto!
Past Experiences are passionate about the Joburg Inner City and Soweto and we aim to showcase their culture, history and fantastic people through walking tours and unique city events.
Our motto is ďIf itís unique and different- we do it!Ē

Most people donít consider Joburg as a premier tourist attraction- but Past Experiences think that they should and aims to change this perception. There is so much to see and do here and Johannesburg is first on our list of places to honour in South Africa.
A distinctive feature of many of our tours is that we either walk or utilise public transport.
Another unique feature of our tours is that although we do focus on the past, we also focus on the future of the city and its rejuvenation.

Child friendly and school tours

We offer weekly budget friendly events for locals so that they are able to experience the city. Kids are welcome on the majority of our events.
We also offer numerous school tours trhough out Gauteng focusing on the archaeology (tours taken by a registered archaeologist) and history of this fantastic country and city. Treasure hunts and fun work books are provided!

Our walking tours include:

Spicy Fordsburg

Join Past Experiences for a relaxing Saturday Afternoon walk and shopping tour. We will take in Fordsburgís history and buildings. We will then stop by the famous Fordsburg market where you can pick up beautiful clothes, henna, incense and much more. The shops in Fordsburg canít be beat and we will then take them in- from delicious sweetmeats wrapped in beautiful boxes, to fresh homemade Indian snacks. The food is really to die for! Why not buy a fresh coconut to sip while you walk round the area and donít forget the Hindu prayer shop- buy beautiful trinkets and holy statues Shahid Chohan, the chairman of the Fordsburg Market will then give us a brief tour around this famous market. We'll end off at one of Fordsburgís best restaurants for a delicious early dinner (at your own cost).
Meeting Point: Old train on Mint Street near the Market (Mint Street and Cnr Commercial Street-directions can be provided)

Naming Jozi-tour of Joburg's inner city

A walking tour of the inner city looking at place, building and street names.
Why, who and what were the places, building and streets of the Joburg inner city named after? Have you ever wondered who Rissik Street was named after? Why Newtown was called Newtown?
The walk will take us to numerous areas in the city where we will also look at public art, the history of the city as well as the rejuvenation happening in the city right now.
For those who are interested we can then end of with some sundowners at Nikiís Oasis in Newtown (at your own cost)
