We took the Gautrein to Park Station and easily spotted the red bus and friendly staff. The bus was puntual and clean. The commentary on the tour was very interesting and informative. We bought the one day combo ticket with a 2 hour tour to Soweto. The Soweto tour is a must do and was the highlight of our day.... More

I spent my first day in South Africa on the city sightseeing bus through Joburg. It was easy to get to Park Station on the Gautrain from my hotel in Sandton, with not much of a wait for the next bus. The narration gives good insight into the history & sites around the central business district. The bus makes it... More

For our first time in J'burg this was an excellent way to learn about the city, to see it and to get around. It is not too difficult to find at Park Station although it did take us a few minutes and a sign in the station and a large one at the bus stop would have been helpful. The... More

I live in Johannesburg and last weekend my family and I went on this bus tour around Joburg City. It was a great day out. Informative, professional and fun. I would definitely recommend this, especially for locals. It's great to learn more about the city we live in.

My wife and I decided to take the hop on hop off tour through Joburg recently and we were pleasantly surprised at all the things this diverse city has to offer. There are some awesome museums well worth the visit. The ones worth mentioning are Constitution Hill, Apartheid Museum and Origins Centre. The staff on the tour are really friendly... More

Being from Cape Town, you have a perception of Jozi, it is dangerous and there is nothing to see or do. Taking the hop-on-hop-off bus was a great experience. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. From the busy streets with its vendors to learning more of our country's history, the tour is well rounded and very informative. I... More

When getting on the bus at Park station I told the driver that I was interested in adding the Soweto tour, but was on a tight schedule. However, he told me that it would be no problem making it in time, so I bought the Soweto ticket too (total R400). When getting to the stop where I was supposed to... More

When we told our friends we were visiting Johannesburg, they said we were mad. It's dangerous, there's nothing to see in the city. How wrong they were. We always look for the city tour bus. You get to guage it for yourself from the top of the bus. It's not the prettiest city but it is very interesting, colourful and... More
