Green tour is nice addition

We did the red tour a year ago and now the green tour. It is a very nice addition. Perfect in time. Ideal way to discover Johannesburg.

The tout was okay. Would rather have experienced the tour with a guide so as to get a more personal touch without the constraints of a timetable

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that our open top double deck bus tour seems more commercial to you than a small private tour. Our type of tour does run to a timetable, as they do all over the world and we do provide a service exactly as we advertise it. I do hope you give us a... More

This is the first thing that we do to get the lay of the land, i.e., determine where to spend more time or get an overview of a city. The Red tour is OK as the city is not picturesque and the Green tour gives you more to see; but, again not exciting. We also did a Soweto tour which... More

Thank you for the review. I am sorry if you felt the City of Johannesburg does not have a lot to offer. I am not sure what you're expectation was but it seems that most travellers who make use of our tours feel that we do show the best Joburg has to offer and do so in safety, comfort and... More

I am in a biz trip and took a weekend to see the city using the double Decker. the tour is very informative, and well organized. I was a little bit uncertain as where to go to find the bus, drop off/drop on, etc, especially knowing that Johannesburg is not famous safe place. but right after I found their office... More

We had booked a two day ticket starting the next day but the driver was able to admit us without any difficulties. Not too many sites on the Red line. We are going to ride the Green line today. Also take advantage of the free Soweto tour (with the 3 day ticket). Sunscreen and a hat if you ride on... More

Great opportunity to explore Joburg with affordable prices. Buses depart every 30 minutes and goes to the main museums and attraction around Joburg. Paying a bit more (I thought was pricey) you can take a van and explore Soweto.

This tour was cheap, stopped at some very cool locations, and the buses ran on time like clock-work. The SOWETO add on is a must; the tour guide was very knowledgeable and very funny.

I believe it is the safest and most cost effective way of visiting Joburg. I was on my own, so I decided it would be safe to be on the bus, rather that walking alone. I had a flight to catch that very same day in the afternoon and I can assure the schedule is followed, they are very punctual!... More

It is a very good option to visit a new city. With my wife decide spend our honey moon vacation in South Africa. And have been a very good decision. The City sightseeing had been the best way to visit an unknown city
