Had a half day tour of this place which included goldmine visit and Apartheid museum as well. A tremendous place to visit and one should not be missing this. The goldmine tour was at its highest level but still was bit suffocating. The guide explained all the details perfectly. Really enjoyed all the day there.

It offers fun, movies, a casino and playpark and most importantly good restaurants and options. Making a day out a pleasure without breaking the budget

Gold Reef City has something for everyone, the rides are so much fun for the thrill seekers. They also have an impressive collection of food outlets to choose from, as well as quaint souvenir places! Loved it.

I fail to see the educational value to have school children go on ride sdurimg school hours. With no supervison in sight. They were the rudest misbehaved bunch ever. The jump the queues as... More
