We are new to JoBurg and we didn't know what we didn't know. The bus tour (combo red and green) was a great way to get to know the city and learn about areas we want to go back to. The bus was comfortable, clean, the audio was excellent quality and content and the route was varied and long. We... More

We did both the Green & Red routes and stopped at the Apartheid Museum. The English commentary was clear and informative; we booked online which saved money and the tour itself was very good.

It's an interesting way to tour to say the least. Basically you you have the option of buying a day pass or 3 day pass. Then the bus stops at every stop. If you wanna get off, off yougo. Ifyou wanna stay on, stay. You get a "tour" while on the bus regardless via the earphones provided to you and... More

Not to give too much away, the history and sights will truly amaze a tourist and even the locals. I have used the Red bus tours... More

Best way to get a real taster of Johannesburg- best when weather is good and can sit on top open air deck. The commentary is available in many languages and very interesting and informative. You can hop off and on - constitution hill and apartheid museum are best stops imho. Buses stop relatively early and are less frequent later on... More
