This tour was so special! It was an awesome way to see a different, less traditional "touristy" side of Johannesburg. It felt authentically African with traditional comfort foods and some interesting traditionally brewed beer. I loved meeting Miriam and getting a peek into her life- her energy as a host was infectious! Definitely recommend this experience.
