I think the experience is very average. There is better spots if you want a nice view. The area is not clean and its scary travelling there.

A good suggestion is to visit the Carlton on the Johannesburg Hop on Hop off bus which has really excellent recorded commentary about the areas you travel through and is trouble free. Not all the stops are good though... More
