Full description
Discover South Africa’s largest city on a 4-hour tour of Johannesburg, and see where the country’s social transformation is most in evidence. Surrounded by golden mountains, Johannesburg’s humble beginnings as a mining settlement soon gave way to rapid development to become the world’s 40th largest metropolitan area.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, drive past the historic buildings of Downtown, and up to the densely residential area of Hillbrow to see the Post Office Tower. Then, experience a 360-degree view of the city from the Top of Africa at the Carlton Centre, Africa’s tallest building.

Continue past Brixton Tower to the affluent suburb of Houghton. Pass the Supreme Court, and visit Museum Africa, where Johannesburg's history can be explored further. End with a guided tour of Constitution Hill, home of South Africa's Constitutional Court, and Johannesburg's Old Fort Prison.
