Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Dlala Nje offers immersive experiences of Hillbrow, Yeoville and other parts of Johannesburg inner-city. As some of South Africa's most notorious - yet misunderstood - neighbourhoods, they remain taboo for most South Africans and many tourists. Dlala Nje removes this fear of the unknown with authentic experiences like no other. Hit the streets for a view of REAL inner city Johannesburg.

With the most enthusiastic hosts you'll find, this is a great way to spend part of a Saturday - safe, fascinating, energized, definitely commendable. Hope there will be more tours soon.

Super Great tour! I Enjoyed learning the history behind Ponte and Hillbrow! Very safe! People say Hillbrow is so dangerous etc, but they havent even been there. I recommend you take this tour and then tell us what u think.

Great tour. Highly recommended if you are interested in getting insight into Johannesburg outside of the Sandton bubble! A bit gritty, but thats the point. Be prepared to eat good food, dance and make new friends. Nickolaus was a wonderful guide and responsive to enquiries.

This tour is great for locals and visitors. Definitely an out of the ordinary experience for everyone. You begin to understand how the city has evolved and the potential it holds. The tour guide, Nickolaus, is a pleasure and keeps everything light and witty. You're sure to leave wondering why you hadn't done it earlier.

Plus proceeds go to the community centre, which is a super plus. Win-win.

This tour is a must for visitors and South Africans. Nickolaus and Michael are two inspirational young men doing so much for the community. It is so easy to just say negative things about Hillbrow but this tour will definitely let you see it differently. There is so much beauty everywhere. I enjoyed it so much and learned so much , will recommend it to everyone. Thank you Nickolaus and Michael for such an awesome tour you guys rock!
