29/09/2015: Enjoy sightseeing during Sandton's Ecomobility World Festival in October
29 September 2015
City Sightseeing Joburg’s hop-on hop-off bus tours will be facilitating a special Sandton Eco Mobility World Festival route on weekends during the month of October 2015, while Segway tours will be offering a novel way to see the many sights of Sandton.

“City Sightseeing brings with it the feeling of safety and security to explore cities across the world,” says Glynn Soule, General Manager of City Sightseeing, Johannesburg. [www.citysightseeing.co.za]

City Sightseeing South Africa launched the Jozi CBD route almost three years ago and are delighted to be part of the Eco Mobility Month in Sandton. Through consistent all day service on weekends the Red Bus will encourage visitors to hop-off and explore at various highlights showcasing the positive impact of Eco Mobility.

City Sightseeing was the first bus operator in South Africa to be certified carbon neutral. “We use recyclable material, are fuel-efficient and recycle our waste. Following an independent carbon audit conducted by Global Carbon Exchange (GCX), we purchased carbon credits from a Cape Town based company called Reliance to offset our remaining carbon emissions,” Says Soule.

Tickets are priced at R20 per adult (one day pass). The bus will be running from 09h00 – 16h00 on weekends only, in an anti-clockwise direction, starting:

Stop 1: Cnr Rivonia and West Street (Gautrain)
Stop 2: Holiday Inn Sandton – Rivonia Street
Stop 3: Cnr Friedman Drive and Gwen Lane
Stop 4: Sandown Valley Centre
Stop 5: Pedestrian Bridge linking Nelson Mandela Square to Sandton Shopping Centre

Enjoy a tour of Sandton on a Segway - only in October 2015

Kasi Tours and Imperial Green Mobility (IGM) are running Segway Guided Tours of Sandton CBD during the Eco-Mobility Festival this October. “This will be the first time Joburgers can experience the fun and exhilaration of gliding on a Segway on the streets of Sandton,” says Claudia Ferro of Kasi Tours.

On offer is a 45-minute Adventure Tour that runs from the exhibition space in the parking lot of the Sandton Library to Mushroom Park. Have fun with Segway X2, off-road model, at the Mushroom Park trails. The second tour is tour of Sandton CBD. The tour is about an hour and a half and runs along the busy streets of Sandton to some of the more prominent buildings and companies in the area.

“There definitely is no better way to explore the sidewalks of Sandton than on a Segway! Segways are easy to use and our guides not only provide expert training, but they offer insights to the local history and happenings,” says Ferro.

Tours cost between R200 and R250. Segway tours will only run during the October so take advantage of this limited offer.
