Picked up the Bus at the Rosebank stop. There is a shop in the mall. Best way to get to spread out tourist sites. Best to buy in advance online for slight discount.

It is a must do for all including locals. I have spent my entire life in Johannesburg and must say was pleasantly surprised. The tour is reasonably priced and the hop off hop on option makes it great. I would recommend this with the extended Soweto included

It is only when I had an overseas visitor that I joined the City Sightseeing bus tour. We started in Rosebank with the Greentour all the way to Constitution Hill without getting out at any of the stops. We took backroads through the leavy northern suburbs and I experienced them in a completely different way than driving through on my... More

Wonderful tour with The Johannesburg Heritage Society. We heard about history of the Chinese in South Africa, heritage of heros, Mandela,s office, lunched @ the Swallows Inn which is highly recommended for Chinese cuisine.

Informative and a great way to get to know the cosmopolitan city of Johannesburg. I recommend allocating a day or two in order to be able to stop in places such as Braamfontein, Zoo Lake, Constitution Hill, the Apartheid Museum, the Wits Art Museum. I shall definitely do the tour again and spend more time exploring the surroundings at the... More

I wanted to do a city tour of Johannesburg and Soweto and was travelling alone. After much research I decided on the City Sightseeing HOHO bus. There are feeder services from Rosebank and now 2 lines. However, I was staying in Houghton, so I decided it was easier to drive to Constitutional Hill and park in the car park. If... More

Great way to the Jozi in a different light. It's amazing how much people don't know the city's history even though they stay there. Loved the Soweto leg of it as well

It was the first time I used the company to sightseeing a city. Johannesburg is a beautiful place, but getting around with public transportation is rather complicated. The hop in hop off scheme of the company really helped and the explanations were very good. Also, the busses were always on time or with only two or three minutes of delay... More
