Buy your tickets online for ZAR170 or in theIr offices at ZAR190! You could also use it to go to Soweto. The staff are very helpful! They'd answer your questions about best stops to hop off in if you want to visit specific places. Great way to explore the city in 2.5-4 hours(subject to traffic).

This bus, both green and red is an excellent way to see joburg, and very carefully planned stops. It will take a full day, start first thing in the morning and make sure to see constitution hill and apartheid museum. Recommend to start from rosebank on the green like and change over to red at constitution hill.

At first everything seemed really well organized and as a family of four something we were really looking forward too till we got stranded on Soweto for a extra hour and a half with no point of contact. When we asked staff for a contact number to call someone to fetch us, we got shooshed and told people were on their way. Literally 1.5 hours later of sitting in the hot sun. A "manager" arrived to apologize but gave no explanation then when we went to start the second half of our strip on the red bus we were told we cannot get brought back to the pick up point.

such a stunning idea, great family day out but the management has no clue how to deal with people when things go wrong

Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry that you had such a horrible experience on the Soweto portion of your tour. We have already discussed this with the owner of the company who operates this for us to ensure that this does not happen again to any other guests.
In terms of you missing the HOHO bus tour, our advertised main departure point is in Rosebank and we advertise and encourage all potential customers to start their tour at this stop, as our service is designed that even the very last bus returns to this stop.
You started at the most southerly stop of a figure 8 loop and so indeed, the late afternoon buses do not return to this stop, but only to the main departure point at the Northern end of the figure 8 loop.
All the same, you have been in touch with us directly and we have extended your tickets, so we do hope you will enjoy your HOHO tour with us in the near future.
