I have used this company in Cape Town and now Johannesburg. They offer friendly, good value, safe, on time city sightseeing tours. Modern open top double deck buses, with wheelchair and multi lingual commentry. Easy to read map, with clear instructions, and clearly marked stops with time table information.

The bus was comfortable, clean, the audio was excellent quality and content and the route was varied and long. We... More
