Metered taxis are very expensive in Johannesburg but are much more convenient and safe for tourists. They will not stop if hailed in the street but can be ordered at any time and can be hired for day trips too. However due to high prices and possibility of meter tampering, visitors should ask the driver an estimated price before setting out. Locals do not give tips. However foreigners can give a small tip, even if it is not expected.
