What people are saying about Gold Reef City

10/10 the best way to see this amazing city. I cannot recommend it high enough! I was expecting inefficiency and delays (as this is SA) but the bus was very reliable and on-time. The bus was also very clean and the staff were amazingly friendly! Don't try to do all the stops. Rather, pick the few that you'd most like to see and spend some time exploring them thoroughly. (Constitution Hill is a must, allow plenty of time to see this historical site.) Spend the rest of the time on the bus seeing the sites and hearing the history of the city through the awesome audio guide.

Our guide: Exactly on time the whole trip. Friendly, professional, very knowledgable on multiple levels. Honest and helpful. Calm and positive. Knows his history, his country, his cities and loves his work. We learned and enjoyed.

Super pleasant experience! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get an idea of Johannesburg in a short time and without risk.

A very informative tour, with the opportunity to experience all the attractions in Johannesburg. I would definitely recommend

It was a very excellent experience. Buses very clean and travel as scheduled.
