Took my young family on the red tour and I learnt things I did not know (even though we live here) what a great way to travel around and see and hear beautiful Cape Town. I love bein a tourist in my own wonder city. Thank you next stop ... The blue route.

What a wonderful way to see the sights in and around Cape Town with the added opportunity of hopping on and off the bus to visit some of the wonderful attractions that we., as residents, often take for granted in our day to day activities. The narration was especially informative and very interesting.

We found this service to be a very cost effective way to see Cape Town (we did the RedLine only). If you think the price might be too expensive, check the price of getting around by cab (and don't forget to include tips)! The informative narration was more entertaining than usual.

This was definitely one of the best ways to tour the city. We got so much information from the commentary on board (with headphones provided on the bus) and really got to know the layout of the city. It helped us to get our bearings and to stop off at some places that we may have never gone to if... More

During my week in Cape Town I used this tour a few times. A two day pass and also a single pass later on. It gets you to everywhere you want to see in Cape Town and has regular stops and lots of buses. Recommend both the city red route and also the blue route that takes you right around... More

This is pretty good value for money. When we were there, there were two options for the trip on differing routes. We have done both and they are informative and interesting. There is an ability to jump off and back on but there should be more warning that waits at some of the more popular places can be quite long.

This is a really great, cost effective way to see the major sights of Cape Town. The red and blue routes have some crossover, but while the red route focuses on the city and then moves out to Table Mountain (including a stop at the cable car station) the blue route heads further out to the Kirstenbosch gardens and the...

A wonderful experience! Every single bus driver and usher were friendly and helpful. A wonderful vibe. The only negative was Groot Constantia stop. Found the staff there unfriendly and cold. An awesome experience otherwise and definitely a PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN (and Capetonian) moment...

Did both the Red & Blue bus tours on consecutive days. Both tours were very interesting taking you to the highlights Cape Town had to offer. It's nice to hop on - hop off at your lea sure. The red tour incoperates a stop at the cable car for Table Mountain. The blue tour visits the wineries for tastings. Would... More
