This is a very good way to see Cape Town. We did the Red tour which takes you from the V&A through town and up to Table Mountain where the Cable Car is the stop. Then its on to Camps Bay (good place to get off for a wander) before coming back past the Footy Stadium and the Rugby Museum.

This is a must for Capetown. You see everything you want to see and it provides a great way to get around all the attractions. Very good service.

The Blue line is particularly spectacular, some of the views between Hout Bay and Green Point are just ridiculous. Bus hits all the right stops too, we managed Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and then on the Red route Table Mountain and Camps Bay amongst others, a tremendous day out and good value too!

These hop on hop off buses are an excellent way of getting around Cape Town when you don't know the city. It is by far the cheapest and easiest way of seeing all the main attractions. Sometimes the buses are late due to traffic so don't under estimate the time to get to a particular place. We found it very... More

We had a great time! We took the purple route and enjoyed a leisurely drive through the city centre towards the Constantia winelands. Got off at Groot Constantia and enjoyed the chocolate and wine pairing. The grounds are spacious, well-kept and beautiful - it was a great way to ease into our holiday. Went through the main house museum. It's... More

The buses are very serious regarding the timing, they are very good in showing the town and explaining everything, they are comfortable. We went on the red bus and the adventure was pleasant. I recommend

In two hours a wonderful city tour with the red bus, with lots of opportunity's to hop off. A nice wine tour with the blue bus. This one will also take you to Kirstenbosch botanical garden, an absolute must!

We didn't know our way around Cape Town at all, and as we were not staying at a hotel, we didn't have much information available. We did hear about the City Sightseeing bus, and it proved to be a great value. They go almost everywhere we wanted to go. It was very easy to hop on and hop off. Beware,... More

We took the Blue Route (there are 3 routes) and it was wonderful, we stopped and hopped on and off all day. Stop were Bo Cape, Kirstenbosch, Hout Bay and Camps Bay. We just loved it!
