Johannesburg might not be a walking city like New York or London, but that doesn't mean there are no discoveries to be made on foot. Mainstreetwalks organises guided mini-tours to be experienced in sneakers or hiking boots. And these aren't your typical trails embracing nature's pleasures. Instead, these urban explorations are designed to get to the heart of the Joburg city scene. From Maboneng to Fox Street, the inner city and Troyeville, you'll pub crawl, have picnics, peruse galleries and visit museums — all while working up a healthy heart rate. Watching reality shows while on the treadmill doesn't even come close.


Guided walking tours in Joburg that teach you the secrets of our city.
There's a pub crawl one that includes a drink at a taxidermy bar.
