If you want to break out of the bubble, overcome stereotypes and experience Hillbrow and the surrounding areas from the perspective of locals this is a must!! Rating should be ten out of five stars! Thank you very much Dlala Nje!
Challenges South African stereotypes

I doubt whether anyone can begin to understand Johannesburg without beginning to understand Hillbrow. This walk led by excellent guides from the Diala Nje NGO permits visitors an honest, thoughtful, close-up, safe and comprehensive view of this much misunderstood area of the city. Whether you're South African or a visitor and have always driven past Hillbrow as fast as possible on your way to somewhere else, this is an essential visit to learn and reset your opinons. Going to the top of Ponte City for lunch and the views was simply a bonus.
Safe and interesting

The tour was simply amazing. We loved the energy, how information was passed and the message behind Dlala Nje. Don't think twice and book your tour to see Johannesburg through a new perspective.

This was wonderful. As good for a Johannesburg resident as for visitors from other places. Comprehensive, informative, open. The guides were amazing.
