See the historical highlights of Johannesburg on this comprehensive 3.5-hour sightseeing tour! As you explore this bustling metropolis by luxury coach, see top Johannesburg attractions like Hillbrow Tower and Nelson Mandela Bridge. Walk up to the observation deck at the Carlton Center for unforgettable views over the city, and learn about South Africa’s transition to democracy at Constitution Hill.
New LD Copy:Begin with a pickup at your hotel in either Rosebank or Sandton, and settle into a comfortable coach for the drive into the historic center of Johannesburg. Listen as your guide tells you about what you’re seeing through the windows — things like the iconic Hillbrow Tower and Post Office Tower — before arriving at your first stop, Carlton Centre.
Visit the observation deck on the 50th floor of this skyscraper — the tallest one in Africa — for an incomparable view over Johannesburg. Enjoy some free time on the viewing platform, with your guide on hand to answer questions, before returning to your coach to continue your tour. Pass the South African Supreme Court building and the Nelson Mandela Bridge.
The next point of interest is Constitution Hill. There you’ll see the Old Fort Prison Complex where Nelson Mandela was once held prisoner, as well as the new constitutional court building. Learn about South Africa’s troubled recent past during the apartheid years and how Constitution Hill was at the center of some of that history.
Continue through the neighborhood called Houghton, where many of Johannesburg’s wealthiest residents live, and — time permitting — your final stop is at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens at Emmerentia Dam. Enjoy some free time in the garden, soaking in the relaxing atmosphere among all that green space, and then board the coach again for the return trip to your hotel.
Please note: This tour requires a minimum of two people per booking.

Got upgraded to the Soweto tour with a little tour around Johannesburg.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Jo-Berg and the people's struggles in South Africa. I didn't realize the tour was more about the city center and not the total area. We essentially drove around downtown and he told us about the history and politics. We asked if he would venture out to Soweto, which was quite interesting. Soweto is rich in history, as home to the poorest of the poor, but also has improved after apartheid and developed middle class and wealthier areas. My honest assessment is that this tour is far too long for the small section of the city that it actually covers. It is top heavy on political history, so better for travelers who want to hear than to see.

The tour that was in the description was not what we took. We spent most of the time at Constitution Hill and had to wait 25 minutes for the tour at CH to begin. I'm used to tours that provide lots of information while driving around. Unfortunately there was lots of silence while driving place to place. I would not recommend this tour.
