One of the best and most authentic food tours we have experienced. We booked last minute as our flight did not leave until late night. So glad we did. Do not despair on the location, It is part of the experience. We were completely safe, ate a variety of great food and experienced life in Jozi

Best tour ever! Joe, my tour guide really took his time to explain the history of Johannesburg and especially Yeoville to me. I experienced the cuisine of Pan-Africa and it was amazing and authentic. Money well spent, I've learned so much! Thank you Joe, my friend, I will keep this experience close to my heart.

It was a great experience to see the culture of so many different African countries. Our guide Joe is local in this district and in his company we still felt safe. The food was delicious (a tip: don't eat too much before). If you book this trip you have to know, in this area of Johannesburg, poverty is on the agenda.
