We are couple& travelled cape town via this bus service. The bus service was accurately bang on time& covered the places with ease. We felt this is the best way for solo travellers to explore cape town at very low cost.

We had a most enjoyable day shared with friends from the UK. Well organised with efficient time table and clean, neat buses with friendly staff. Suggest two day pass is taken as too much to do in one day.

The city sightseeing is an inexpensive and easy way to explore Capetown. The hop on/hop off points are easy to find, when the weather is nice it is lovely to sit on the upper deck and enjoy the marvellous views. There is a very interesting comment in many languages and nice african music in between. An easy and relaxing way... More

I'm glad to have used this service. I decided to be a tourist in my own city & bought the 2 day ticket. Unfortunately, I was'nt able to use all the extra's attached to this ticket. It's a pity there is'nt a 3 day ticket! There's so much to see in and around Cape Town.

Thank you so much for the great review! We've heard you and many other guests too! So we have extended the validity of the "extra's" included in the 2-Day ticket for a third day. So, whilst the bus remains valid for the 2 consecutive days, the walking tour, the boat cruise and the Night tour to Signal Hill can now... More

The hop on/hop off experience will be familiar to many. It's a great way to learn about a city. But you need patience. If you buy tickets online, you still need to queue to pick up your tickets (15 min), then then want to take a picture of you to sell to you later (and are not happy if you... More

We arrived in Cape Town with a car, and used it for a few days before deciding to use the bus. The pick up points are in all the major spots, so chances of you getting on close to your hotel are good. The process of paying on the bus is good, but can be slow if paying by card,so... More

I went along on the City Sightseeing bus when my cousin visited from Austria. It turned out to be lots of fun playing tourist in my own city. We took the blue route, and it was a great opportunity to take in the sights and really appreciate the beautiful scenery without the hassle of driving and parking. It was also... More

We went on both routes and thoroughly enjoyed it all. The drivers are friendly and accommodating, payment easy by cash or card, electronic commentary in multiple languages excellent, and you can board and drop off at any stop.

This was a fantastic way to see our home town from a different viewpoint - the top of an open-air bus!! The whole process was slick, from booking, to buses arriving on time, to the commentary. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The commentary was excellent - my 12 year old son sat riveted throughout - I was not... More
