The Jozi Red Bus with a GeePee card

I was so lucky to win a place on the City Sightseeing Red Jozi Bus through Tanya Kovarsky's blog, Rattle and Mum.

They have just launched the "I'm a GeePee" card, which enables one adult ticket two kid's tickets for free!

I have looked into the Red Bus rides before, but have been reluctant because I thought it would become quite expensive if you get off at all the stops.
I have now realized that it is only possible to do about one or two stops in a day.

That means we will be going on a number of these rides!
I want to check out all the stops, and spend some time there.

It is fantastic to drive through the city, with running commentary (in a selection of 10 different languages, with kids commentary as well) about the history and the buildings, without worrying about the destinations, or where to park.
I also love the top vantage point on the bus, looking down on Johannesburg street live. 
It is so vibrant and bright and jostling city! Especially on a Saturday!

The Joburg Red Bus stops at Gandhi Square, the Roof of Africa at the Carlton Centre, the James 
Hall Transport Museum, the Apartheid Museum, Gold Reef City, the Mining District, the World of Beer, Newtown Precinct, the Origins Centre, Wits Campus, Braamfontein and Constitution Hill. 

City Sightseeing Joburg operates on a Hop-On, Hop-Off basis, which means you can get off the bus at any of the designated stops along the route and then jump back on to a later bus at your leisure.  

Definitely a number of places to go with the kids!

  1. That looks like a lot of fun. We are planning on going on the Red bus in Cape Town next month when we go down for Skouspel.


I love to hear your comments :D
