    What to Expect
    Access the ticket office and main terminus point in Rosebank by using either the world class high speed "Gautrain" or the complimentary, branded shuttle operating from selected hotels in Sandton and Melrose Arch or reach it using your rented car. 

    Once you have boarded our double-decker bus, we begin the tour on the Green Route which visits the leafy Northern suburbs stopping at Zoo Lake, the Johannesburg Zoo and the Military Museum before reaching Constitution Hill. This is also the interchange point to join the Red City Tour that visits downtown Johannesburg. Stops on this route include the "Roof of Africa" viewing deck on the 50th floor of the Carlton Center, the James Hall Transport Museum, the Gold Reef City Theme park, the Apartheid Museum, SAB World of Beer, the Origins Center at Wits university and Braamfontein (home of the NeighbourGoods Market on a Saturday morning) before returning to the interchange point at Constitution Hill. 

    Choose from a 1 day or 2 Day valid ticket, each of which let you hop on and off the bus as many times as you like during the specified ticket period. Tickets are validated starting with the time of first use.

    Well the only place I felt safe enough to get off, the bus supposedly was allowing You a toilet and or drink break, by the time I returned (maybe 5mins) it was gone and then the next one was late in. My advice, don't leave the bus unless you have plans.

    Thank you for your comment - which seems very different to most feedback we receive. We have several stops with staff on duty that ensure its safe for your to visit. One such example is the Carlton Center. Johannesburg usually beats most travellers expectations - we are saddened that we could not change your opinion.

    The only issue I had with this City Sightseeing tour was BEFORE we arrived. I booked our tickets through Trip Advisor and realized I did not book the Soweto tour. When I tried to amend them I got all manner of correspondence back saying that was impossible, I needed to cancel

    Thank your for tour review. I am sorry that the ticket amendment caused you issues. Please remember that when you book via a third party, you are beholden to their rules, not ours. I think it’s important to mention that even if you have selected the entry level ticket through any third party, we are always able to upgrade on the day at the time of redemption. So pleased you enjoyed the SOWETO portion of our tour. Thanks for raising this issue. We hope that it will make the journey of other readers easier!

    An amazing tour Jo-Berg. We started early in the morning Yellow line, then the Green Line, then the Red line. We enjoyed the audio on the buses the educational value was on par with ALL of the other Hop-On Hop-Off buses. The bus staff was very friendly and helpful.
