TOUR DESCRIPTION

See the sights of Johannesburg at your own pace with this 1-day valid ticket for the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour. Also included is a 2-hour extension tour of the township of Soweto, described as the “New York of Africa.” Take in the sights of the city where Mandela once lived and Mahatma Gandhi started his legal career.

Learn the history of Johannesburg from the audio commentary once on board the double decker sightseeing bus. Ride through the city's historic neighbourhoods and see fascinating attractions, many related to the struggle against apartheid. Get on and off as much as you like.

Hear about 2 of the 20th century’s most famous liberation heroes in the city where they started their legal and political careers. Follow in the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi and his Passive Resistance (Satyagraha) Movement, and Nelson Mandela with his Defiance Campaign.
