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 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...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...More

hi, we'll be in johannesburg in early july for 2 days and it sounds like the on/off bus was a great way to see the city. did you book it when you arrived or prior? did you feel safe getting off the bus and walking around?? it seems best to see the apartheid museum on your own? any further suggestions are welcomed. thank you! food queen

The Apartheid Museum. You'll need about 2-3 hours for it.
