Jo Buitendach is the leader of Past Experiences, Joburg's Original Walking Tour Company. She cares deeply about the inner city, its communities, graffiti, art, buildings, and its bright future. Past Experiences' tailor-made tours are led by young and hip Joburg City experts and aim to get you onto the streets, experiencing the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the city and the company are particularly well known for their excellent street art, public art and graffiti themed tours of downtown Joburg.

Also try the inner-city shopping tour to pick up extraordinary African items, or the historical tours that highlight the activities of the anti-apartheid movement in Johannesburg. Their Soweto tour includes a picnic in Thokoza Park.

Past Experiences offer tailor-made shopping trips that focus on contemporary South African art, upmarket craft, rare books and local design. It’s a meet the makers approach as you travel across the city to look at - depending on your interests - modern design, collectables, vintage items and antiques.
