“Who knew Joburg was so interesting”
Reviewed 8 January 2017

I have done these bus trips in other countries but didn't think Joburg had much to offer from a touristy point of view. My 8 year old daughter and I had a lovely day on the bus. We found the staff really friendly and they even helped store our luggage for the day as we had come straight from the airport. The commentary was really interesting - I didn't know that Joburg is a huge manmade forest ! We felt safe and although we didn't have time to get off at most of the spots we really enjoyed the day. I would recommend for any visitor to Joburg and the locals :)

“World class ”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 via mobile

Did the city tour on a very rainy day and it was time well spent.
The staff was friendly.
The buses were right on schedule which impressed me greatly.
Earphone commentary was clear and very interesting.
Neighborgoods market at the Braamfontein stop was amazing with the best paella I've ever had. The atmosphere was fantastic.

I would recommend starting early and decide which attractions you really want to visit as it's not possible to do explore every stop on the route.

Great value and service. On par with the rest of the world and better than some

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 via mobile

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).
