The hop-on/hop-off sightseeing buses are the perfect way to get to see all the key sites at an inexpensive price! There are two routes with options for a wine tour, township tour, city center walking tour, and a canal tour as well. Find your way to Costantia Winery, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Hout Bay, Camp's Bay, V&A Waterfront (and the ferry to... More

My hubby was shark cage diving today so I needed a solo-friendly activity for the day. Just a couple of minutes walk from our hotel downtown I took the blue line mini peninsular tour - I started at 9:40 am and got back to the hotel at 4:30pm. Along the way I visited the Mount Nelson hotel, spent an hour... More

This tour worked out well for us. Limited time and on a budget we bought a 2 day pass. Buying online saves you money and is very convenient. The buses are clean, efficient, run on time and the staff is friendly. The commentary is a bit odd but I learnt some facts. It hits alot of touristy spots and well... More

The hop on hop off bus was a great way for us to see Cape Town. Unfortunately the weather was too bad and the cable car to table top was not running. However we visited the aquarium and walked around the food and craft markets at Victoria and Alfred waterfront and then visited the bird and monkey avery along the... More

Rode around on the red line buses one day in July. Saw all of the popular sights and hopped off and back on several times during the day.

The Double Decker bus was comfortable and the driver was skillful on the winding road. I took the red line tour because I didnt have enough time. I was not disappointed. The hop on off was a good idea. I enjoyed myself and I certainly will be back to Cape Town.

I took my two children for a day out on the bus. We had a wonderful day and enjoyed all our stops - seeing the fishing boats at Hout Bay, ice-creams on the beach at Camps Bay and shopping, lunch and the lovely canal cruise at the Waterfront. We never had to worry about car-guards or parking which made it... More

I found this based on online reviews and I was not disappointed! I bought my 2-day ticket online (buy online, saves you money). I took the red bus tour on 2 consecutive days (I wanted to but could not take the blue tour). The first day I caught the bus outside the convention center and took it to the table... More

Took our 3 year old on the red bus and he was so excited from the beginning to the end of the tour. Great way of spending a day in Cape Town, its so easy to hop off and hop back on. We hopped off at Kirstenbosch gardens and spent some time there and jumped back on to carry on... More

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.
