This service is perfect for getting your bearings and a potted history of Johannesburg. With restricted time in Jo’Burg this was a perfect way to see ‘everything’. There is an add on to Soweto available. High recommended.

Bought the two day pass, really only needed one. Nice overview of the city, not too many stops actually required getting off.

The tour was very informative and on time. The bus was very comfortable, and the audio worked perfectly. We got to see a lot of Joburg in only 3 hours. That was perfect for us. The price was reasonable as well.
