Loved it! The Jacarandas in Jo-burg still had a lot of purple flowers. The red bus is the best way of seeing the city. We took the gautrain from Rhodesfield to Rosebank - which is an awesome experience.

Good sightseeing but please avoid the one that is going to Soweto. Better to take a private guide to go there Nice buses with plenty stops. Very safe way to visit most important sites
