We booked the Big Bus tours on the basis of our experiences using them in Dublin, and we were not disappointed. The drivers made excellent efforts to keep in synch with the recorded commentary, arriving within metres of individual points of interest as the description was provided. The ear buds provided worked very well for the vocal commentary and had... More

Rather than spend our final morning before flying home sitting on a bus, we decided to opt for the 70 minute Historic City Walking Tour - we are so glad we did! The tour takes you to many of the key places in Cape Town for the history of South Africa, such as the Courts where a person's ethic classification... More

As a Cape Town resident, I recon this is probably one the those things that 'every local must do'. When you drive your car around the peninsula you never really have the opportunity to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. This trip gave me the chance to do just that and it was an awesome experience, worth every... More

While the Red Bus should be a definite in every tourist's book, I would love to encourage locals to get on it and learn more about our beautiful city. The day we spent on the Blue Route was perfect in so many ways. It is lovely to sit back and relax and see things from a new angle. The canal... More

Over the years went on the open bus city tours in London and New York and earlier this year went on Cape Town's Red Bus Tour. The Red Bus stood there well compared to the rest. the buses are far more modern and the automated guide information guide was great as there was consistency for all tours. when there are... More

On a recent visit to Cape Town, my family and I hopped on the iconic Red Bus. I have lived in Cape Town for most of my life but have been living in JHB for the last 2 years. It was extremely wonderful being a tourist in my home town and I truly believe that Capetonians do not appreciate this... More
