For anyone visiting Joburg I would suggest this be a must as you get to see many different locations with SA history that you would not necessarily do on your own.

Being on my own I wasn't sure how to visit Johannesburg but getting the City Sightseeing was the best idea. It takes you safely everywhere and the Soweto Tour is unmissable.
