Good and practical way to see Joburg. U can take a shuttle from some hotel in Sandton to reach the bus stops. There are two lines - the red one is longer and nicer. The green one us not so special.

I always use these City Sightseeing Buses in every place I visit that has them. The Jo-burg buses are an excellent way to get around the city safely and with ease. Reliable and fun.
