Thankyou Kah for a truley unforgettable tour of Maboneng. It was one of the highlights of our Southern Africa tour. - John

Absolutely brilliant experience. We live in Jo'burg and took the tour to explore a part of the city that we don't have the opportunity to visit in our day-to-day. Iko helped us to discover a whole different experience of Jozi. The street art was stunning, and so powerful, and we felt like we were walking back in time and seeing the history of Jo'burg come to life. And we met some really great people! A fabulous experience, and we will definitely be booking again with Iko to explore other parts of our hometown. - Kristy

We absolutely loved our experience walking through Maboneng and the inner city of Joburg with our awesome guide Ikoh. Ikoh was not only super informative about this vibrant city, but he provided such an in-depth knowledge about the nation's politics and people which created some amazing discussions. The street art and artist initiative in Maboneng is impressive - highly recommend! Thank you again Ikoh for showing us such a wonderful time, from your Australian friends Jen and Liam. - Liam

Our tour of the Joburg CBD and Maboneng with the fabulous guide Eco was one of the highlights of our South African trip. We could not have imagined that walking through the Joburg inner city could be this fantastic. Whilst we also learnt a lot about the history, the focus was on the vibrant arts and culture scene. The street art is incredible and our guide knew so much about all the artists. Not once did we feel unsafe, bored or tired during the 3 hour walk. On the contrary, it left us feeling hopeful and positive about this unique city and its people. I cannot recommend this tour enough! It's fun, informative and active. - Elke

Our guide knew a lot about the street art and the evolution of Maboneng. The entire tour is very diverse and full of info and insights you do not get anywhere else. I definitely can recommend getting introduced to Jo'burg this way! - Bjoern
