The Red Bus tour is one of the most economical and informative tours I have have participated in. The double decker bus is fun and a great way to see the city. The tour guides are well trained and provide important "tid-bits"about the city. I...More

In addition to the normal tour, we took the option to go visiting Soweto. It was very interesting and we had a good and very nice guide. Don't forget your cap if you're sitting outside though! ;)

Tour is OK, interesting commentaries but does not compare with Cape Town's, guess it is due to the city itself. Problem is they refer to restaurants in NewTown without mentioning that it is dangerous to walk back to Park Station even in day light. Got...More
