Being a Johannesburg resident for most of my life, this tour offered a unique view into the history of the streets I have spent so much time traveling on. A sure eye-opener into the abundant history of Johannesburg that is all around us.

I always try to include a HOHO bus tour when I travel. This was one of the best. You could easily spend 2 full days seeing the city. The routes cover All the major attractions. Well worth the money!
