We bought a 48 hour pass and it was an excellent way to see the city, enjoy the sights and save money on taxis. The city sightseeing tickets included some walking tours as well as different routes that maximized our experience. The only downside is that it doesn't have a route or a shuttle to take you to cape point... More

I took the red bus tour around Cape Town and up to Table Mountain. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It's a cool way to see a lot of things in short amount of time. It also stops at the aquarium. They give you head phones to which you can listen to the history of the City as you pass land... More

..if you don't know a city then this bus journey is an absolute no brainer..it will take you to all the main tourist areas and even a few others as well..e.g. in Cape Town we visited District 6 - look that up on Google to see just how important it is to the city..the whole tour visited all the main...

Love these buses. Great way to find your way around a new city. Cape Town has changed so much since our last visit felt it was a must and was not disappointed

Anyone going to Cape Town for the first time needs to do this as soon as they get there. We didn't have time to do the 2 days, but that would be my preference. In all the cities we've travelled, we've never had as great an experience as this. Fabulous timing audio timing as each attraction appear with multi-lingual headphones,... More

This is an excellent way of getting around Capetown for newcomers or visitors returning. Usually these on-off buses in cities are fairly expensive but this is good value. Book on line and you get a discount. Book both main routes on adjacent days and you get the two mini tours, the canal trip and the signal hill sunset trip added... More

This is the tour every visitor to Cape Town must take. One gets to see all the attractions in Cape Town in 2 days, other tours, e.g. walking tours are allowed to be taken on the 3rd day. The buses are very clean and the staff is friendly and always willing to assist. I'm short of words to decribe the... More
