“A great introduction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Definitely begin your visit in Cape Town by taking the Red Bus (main part of Cape Town) or Blue Bus (Cape Town and surrounding areas) tours. It gives you an overview of this beautiful city and helps you decide where you want to return.

“Excellent trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We did the blue route as we only bought a 1 day ticket.( 2 day ticket you can use either blue or red route.) plenty of stops and would recommend stopping at Imizamo Yethu township tour. Great sea views along the way. Weather perfect so made the trip even better. Take sun screen as the cooling wind can be deceiving & hang on to your hat.

This is a good service with good busses and staff. The routes were very interesting and the ability to hop on and off as needed was enjoyable. Well run, organized and safe.
