“Tourists will soon be able to jump on an iconic red open-top bus and explore some of the most famous tourist locations in Johannesburg,” she said in a statement.

Mahlangu also outlined further plans for tourism in the province for this year and the next and said the buses would make the city more tourist friendly: “These buses will allow visitors to explore the city’s history in a safe and convenient way.”

Mahlangu said the buses, which operate in 100 cities on six continents around the world, will offer commentary in 17 different languages.”
