I was staying in Joburg for a few weeks for my studies and the city sightseeing bus is definitely a great option to discover different parts of the city! I am a blonde, European girl and I did this tour solo. I felt perfectly safe to get off whereever I wanted. However, I

If you're new to Joburg, this is probably the best way to tour the city for a value price. Plan to allow all day, use both the red and green routes, and you can visit several sites. I started in Rosebank at 9:30 am, with stops at Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum,

I think generally it was exciting and ok. I think it could be better though since I was to scared to get down from the bus.

Well the only place I felt safe enough to get off, the bus supposedly was allowing You a toilet and or drink break, by the time I returned (maybe 5mins) it was gone and then the next one was late in. My advice, don't leave the bus unless you have plans.

Thank you for your comment - which seems very different to most feedback we receive. We have several stops with staff on duty that ensure its safe for your to visit. One such example is the Carlton Center. Johannesburg usually beats most travellers expectations - we are saddened that we could not change your opinion.

The only issue I had with this City Sightseeing tour was BEFORE we arrived. I booked our tickets through Trip Advisor and realized I did not book the Soweto tour. When I tried to amend them I got all manner of correspondence back saying that was impossible, I needed to cancel

Thank your for tour review. I am sorry that the ticket amendment caused you issues. Please remember that when you book via a third party, you are beholden to their rules, not ours. I think it’s important to mention that even if you have selected the entry level ticket through any third party, we are always able to upgrade on the day at the time of redemption. So pleased you enjoyed the SOWETO portion of our tour. Thanks for raising this issue. We hope that it will make the journey of other readers easier!
