As we had not been previously here, we decided to use this method to see Johannesburg. During two days we saw much of the town, also many areas which did not look that friendly. Easier than driving around by own car. Due various reasons, most...More

I found the tour to be a little pricey for what we got, especially since we still had to pay entrance to majority of the attractions. However, the drive through the city was really nice and we were able to see a number of beautiful...More

The tour bus itself is a predictable format, but compared with other major cities, represents excellent value for money (it is cheap). Optional extras including the fascinating 2-3 hour Township tour of Soweto. Johannesburg represents a bit of a safety risk for tourists, and by...More
