Next, it’s the James Hall Transport Museum
If your kids are into history or all things automotive, don’t miss out on the James Hall Transport Museum at STOP 12. Hop-Off the bus at Constitution Hill to change over to the Red Route bus that will take you to the Transport Museum. The museum is full of transport relics from wagons to vintage firetrucks used in the early 1900s. There’s so much to see and learn, and it’s fascinating to go on the journey of how far we’ve come over the years.
Enjoy the thrills at Gold Reef City Theme park
This one is sure to be a hit with the whole family. Hop-Off at STOP 14 for a day of adventure at Gold Reef City Theme Park, home to rides suitable for all ages and a classical Mining Village, with its own real mine.

Take the kids panning for gold or one of the many rides in the park from the rampant roller coasters to the teacups and water rides.
If you’re sightseeing with us on the first Sunday of the month be sure to visit the Jozi Urban Market at STOP 13. Gold Reef City Casino hosts the market on the first Sunday of every month in their Level 4 and 5 parking areas. It’s the perfect place to try gourmet coffees, wines, craft beer, street food, and to purchase a number of crafts and gifts. There’s also always live music to enjoy as well.
