This tour is all about having fun while immersing yourself in the cool “vibes and feels” of the eastern part of the inner city and will be the most exciting and fun thing you do in Johannesburg ever!
Grab the crew and lets go!
Hide Out Bar at Curiocity Hostel
Curiocity is the inner city's first backpackers (est. 2013) and is rumoured to have been used by Mandela and Tambo as a hide out - hence the bar name "The Hide Out Bar"!

You should bring closed, comfortable shoes for the tour as it will make it easier for you to balance on the skateboards.
In the warmer months of the year we recommend that you bring a cap, sunscreen and some water as it can get quite hot – during the colder months, bring warm clothing.
Yes, there is street parking available at the meeting point of the tour – however, it is used entirely at your own risk and we encourage you to rather use Ubers to and from the tour.
