Touring around a city is more convenient and less painstaking with the end to end connectivity. The red buses offer such a tourist-friendly and flexible trip for all its visitors. The city of Johannesburg is fun to discover with the informative and entertaining commentary. The Johannesburg open top buses enable a more spectacular view from the upper deck. The buses operate on the two routes Green and Red. If you have time-constraints, go for Green which will take you to the five best tourist spots of Johannesburg. The red line will, however, offer you the nine famous attractions of the city.


Commence your journey to make an everlasting memory of the Johannesburg city. Board one of the Johannesburg Hop-On, Hop-Off Double-Decker Buses and get started with the fun-filled trip, and see the city from a different perspective. With the Johannesburg hop-on hop-off tour bus, you may visit the city's top 20 sites. Spend as much time as you like exploring this vibrant metropolis, which has been dubbed "the New York of Africa."
The pre-recorded audio commentary in 15 languages will provide you with information on the history of Johannesburg while you are on board. As you travel across the city on the double-decker bus, you'll pass through historic districts and intriguing sites, many of which are connected to the battle against apartheid. Learn about the history of the world's largest man-made forest and why Johannesburg should have never been developed at the location it was. You can go on and off as many times as you like.
Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi, two of the twentieth century's most renowned liberation heroes, began their legal professions and subsequently their political careers in Johannesburg: Gandhi with the Passive Resistance (Satyagraha) movement and Mandela with the Defiance Campaign. Following some of their steps between Chancellor House and Gandhi Square in the city centre would provide you with an interesting experience.
Join the trip in Rosebank and journey through the city's beautiful suburbs to Constitution Hill. The tour lasts around two hours. Change here to the downtown route for an up-close and personal experience of the real inner-city of Johannesburg.
