Use the hop on hop off tour to see the city and spend time with some highlights. Stops at Gold City, Apartheid Museum, the Zoo and Park, SA world of beer, shopping and restaurants. If you get off 4 or so times, one day is plenty. You can do 2days for only R10 more. A real highlight is Carlton Center. The bus guide accompanies you to the roof. Well worth the time.

Joburg is so big that the stops are far apart. The bus is rather slow and not so frequent, so, you need to take two or more days if you want to see Joburg AND visit the attractions.
I really admire the bus routes and did the Soweto tour too. It is one of the most worthwhile ways to get around and see the City.

A great tour with some really interesting sites to visit. Enjoyed driving through Johannesburg and a visit to Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum. Good value for money to get an overview of some of the stories of South Africa’s history. Felt safe throughout and bus drivers were very friendly. Good commentary throughout with some local language tips.

Our party of 4 purchased tickets for the Hop On/Off tour of JHB + Soweto extension on 16 June 2018. We boarded at Rosebank, changed at Constitution Hill, then again at Gold Reef for Soweto. Loved it! Booking desk staff were great - informative and very friendly. The bus drivers were all smiles and happy to answer questions we had. The commentary was very interesting (I lived in JHB for 18 years and learnt a lot!). Timetables and info were very clear and the bus itself was very clean. Well done to all!

The Soweto extension was our favourite. A bucket list item now ticked off but made especially special by our driver Nicholas and our brilliant guide, Mbali. These guys are funny, professional and knew how to navigate the streets of Soweto on a very busy Youth Day. We were SO impressed. Thank you for a brilliant day out. It’s clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into this venture.
