The staff were friendly, helpful and punctual. We explored beautiful places around Jozi. The weather was sunny and the views from the bus were lovely. I like that we are given headsets to listen to the tour guide as the bus travels. It is best to bring own snacks and water for

It was a great experience, and I learned a lot. I enjoyed seeing the city from the point of view of a tourist. Although, it would've been nice to have a bit more time for the bathroom break and to buy snacks...

It was a beautiful experience even as a local I got to see Jhb in a different way and its history. It's a refreshing view of the city of gold and my family enjoyed it too.

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the tour. Many of our guests hop off at the Carlton Center, where we have a dedicated uniformed team member who accompanies you to the viewing deck and back again. I assume that our drivers "High fiving" was before the Corona Virus social distancing, where we now sanitise more than touch anything! All the same I am very happy to hear that he was very enthusiastic but will discuss this issue with all our team members. Thanks for joining us - we hope to see you again onboard soon.

We did the 2-day pass; I would recommend that as there is simply too much to see in one day. The diversity of the city expressed on the tour is tremendous. One stop that seemed to be low on the priority list for others was the military museum. I would highly recommend it -
