    Delightful evening at Marabi. We went around 7:30 and it wasn't super packed but the band was playing. They went on a off after 30/45 minutes so you had time to chat with your dinner party and not feel like you were being rude to the band members. The food was excellent and servers were also attentive, helpful, and nice.

    Sean did the most amazing tour for us! It was kind of freestyle tour where you can ask all kind of questions that pop up in your head and get interesting and detailed answers. We explored the central area, went to a museum, saw saw beautiful graffiti and generally caught Joburg vibe thanks to this tour. Hightly recommended to anyone!

    We were invited to a dear friend's wedding reception. The venue with its views are absolutely exquisite. As the evening went on, it just got better and better when the finger snacks were served on the veranda. The evening was topped off with some of the finest food served in Johannesburg by far. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for only the best. Very professional staff, amazing food and a this in a venue with fantastic views.

    I have been here with my friends on a saturday night, we danced and drink all night. The djs were great, the location is cool. This is not my favourite zone of the city, pay attention especially if you are a tourist.

    This cocktail bar / restaurant is a great spot for a post work cocktail (or beer) while looking out over the Modderfontein area. Their food is reasonably priced and of good quality as well. From time to time they have live bands/DJs playing on a Friday evening when it is at its busiest.

    They reserve the right of judging the way you wear. They wouldn't let me in because of my shoes and also couldn't give a reasonable explanation for why is that, just kept saying "this is south africa", but actually I don't think it is, because I didn't have this kind of judgment on cape town for instance. Just an inexplicable rule for judging people by what they wearing. As a tourist I doesn't even make sense at all.

    I did the Marshalltown half-day walking tour with Charlie. He is a fantastic storyteller and highly knowledgeable about Jozi's history and current context. I've been on many walking tours and have never come across a guide with more knowledge and obvious passion for his city than Charlie - it's honestly like getting a university-level education!

    Marshalltown and the CBD are safe to walk around (during the day). The walk is about 4 hours with two coffee breaks, during which Charlie continues his history lesson.

    Highly recommended!! When I come back to South Africa, I will book more of their activities.

    I found Jozi Pub Crawl on Facebook when planning my sisters bachelorette. I gave them the types of places we would prefer to go and they put together a fun filled evening of pub hopping for us. Essentially we just had to rock up, everything else was taken care of to the T. We got more than we bargained for with some special treatment that just added to the evening. I would highly recommend them for a night out or special function.

    Surly staff at the door. The women at the till needs a lesson in common courtesy. It’s as if you’re doing them a favour by going. Lots of smokers inside and you’ll have to wash your clothes when you get out as you will reek of cigarette smoke.
    There’s no seating unless you pay for the privilege and no dance floor.
    Wish I’d gone to Taboo round the corner instead.
