City Sightseeing, the brand that operates the iconic open top red double-decker buses in over 100 cities across the globe, has begun running tours in Johannesburg.

City Sightseeing Johannesburg follows an exciting route through the Joburg CBD that offers locals and tourist alike the chance to explore this vibrant city, visiting the many attractions on offer and sampling the sights, sounds, colours, cultures and rich heritage that are all synonymous with Jozi.

The tour operates on the usual Hop-On, Hop-Off basis, which allows sightseers the chance to get off the bus at any of the designated stops along the route and then get back on to a later bus at their leisure.

Stops include Gandhi Square, the Roof of Africa at the Carlton Centre, the James Hall Transport Museum, the Apartheid Museum and Gold Reef City, the Mining District, the World of Beer, the Carlton Centre, Santarama Miniland, Newtown Precinct, the Origins Centre, Wits Campus, Braamfontein and Constitution Hill.

Buses run on a rotational basis, stopping at all of the designated points along the route every 40 minutes. It is recommended that you start your tour either at the Gautrain Station @ Park (Bus Stop 1) or at Gold Reef City (Bus Stop 6).

The tour aims to change people's perceptions of the city of Johannesburg and offer both local and foreign visitors a unique way of exploring the city.

Tours will start from 9am until late seven days a week. Tickets for the bus tours will cost R150 from the City Sightseeing Tour Office inside the Gold Reef City Hotel and will be discounted to R120 if purchased online on the City Sightseeing website.
