About Johannesburg In Your Pocket City Guides


Founded in 1992 In Your Pocket City Guides is an international media publishing company producing well-written, well researched and independent print and digital guides to cities across Europe, the Caribbean and since 2014, South Africa. We are known for our irreverent, useful and up-to-date city guides aimed at both domestic and international tourists.

Johannesburg In Your Pocket is now the leading online cultural guide to southern Africa’s largest city. We pride ourselves on consistently producing content that is both practical and entertaining, and on sharing stories about both mainstream and lesser-known attractions and experiences.

We believe in welcoming visitors and locals to cities with up to date information that is independently written and curated. In Johannesburg we have grown a dedicated following who look to our weekly Johannesburg In Your Pocket What’s On newsletter, website updates and social media for how to best spend time in their own city.  

Our approach to enhancing visitor experience has led us to work closely with key Johannesburg city districts, corporates, tourism authorities, attractions, hotels and other hospitality-focused businesses. In everything we do we aim to put culture first, highlighting the unique assets of a place through a focus on its people and its attractions.
