Waterfront is the best place to Hangout and have good food. The city has excellent Weather and the best part was the chilled Sea water which made me go in love with it. Cape Town is the Place in my List which i would like to go again.

I primarily used the bus as my form of transport to Table Mountain and was happy with my decision because of the information provided en route and because it allowed me to see some additional sites on my way back.

It is such a relaxing way to see the beauty of Cape Town: the panoramic blue route on the bus. We had an exchange student with us, but the rest of us also felt like tourists in our own country. We hopped off at Kirstenbosch, the wine bus and Hout Bay (for lunch at the Lookout Deck). The drive next... More

Good value and informative tour. Went the red route and really enjoyed it! Didn't get up table mountain unfortunately but the lady tour guide on the bus still gave us good info on openings,visibility etc. Hopped off on long street, V&A and camps bay. A lot of hawkers on camps bay stop waiting for people who get off the bus.... More

We did the red bus tour one day, and the next day we went for the La GUGU township tour. It was absolutely amazing, the guide (Mundoza or something like that) was the coolest guy, he took us around the township, where we could visit some houses etc (in exchange for a little money). We totally recommend the tour, it... More

An affordable fun way to see the magnificence of the Cape Peninsula. Don't forget to take a windbreaker however, it can be really cold on the top deck!!! Great photographic experiences. Also super,as you can hop on and off as you wish and catch another bus if you want to linger at a favourite spot. I recommend taking a picnic... More

We have never seen Cape Town so beautiful and realised how privileged we are to live in such a a beautiful city. We made it... More

My first day in the city, being jet-lagged, my friends and I decided to take a bus tour. We rode the red line city tour (hopping on and off once) and then the blue line tour around the far side of Table Mountain. It was a great way to see the city without having to navigate ourselves. The recorded narration... More
