Family of four with 2 teenagers enjoyed exploring Johannesburg by bus. Really impressed by the service provided by bus staff when we attended the lookout at Carlton Centre who escorted us and made sure we were safe while getting lunch.

Good way to see the city and figure it out. Good narration on the audio. Many languages. Stops at key places. The driver didn’t give good directions to get to Origins Museum - we wandered around and people on campus were not helpful either.

Best way to see Joburg, Hands, down! I've lived here a long time and always learn something new each time. It's worth any money that you spend on it, and the hop-on, hop-off option is GREAT. Worth every penny!

Enjoyed the convenience of having a bus take us to places of interest around Joburg. Audio commentary also helped very much in getting a deeper understanding of the place.
