Half Day Johannesburg City Tour
Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and one of the 50th largest urban areas in the world. The city was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm. Due to the extremely large gold deposit found along the Witwatersrand within ten years, the population had grown to 100,000 inhabitants.
The city is the home of the South African Constitutional Court, and is the centre of the countries large scale gold and diamond trade. Johannesburg is a booming, vibey city with many areas of art culture and cuisine, and the area close to City Hall and the Newtown Cultural Precent, which has completely transformed the Market Theatre and surrounds and now forms the heart of the Johannesburg urban revival.
