Great 1 hour tour providing an incite into the awful conditions experienced by the inmates of the Hill. Certainly a highlight of my last trip to Joburg.

This is today & tomorrow of SA. If you want to understand & appreciate where SA is today & tomorrow you have to visit. Make sure you have a good guide from the Constitution Hill to explain the incredible symbolism

Is it safe to walk in the Hillbrow area during the day? I do enjoy exploring a city on foot rather than going on tours. Can I do it in Johannesburgh city center safely?
