what could be more convenient. Buses every 20 minutes, hop on hop off, commentary in several languages. Great value.

“A good insight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We did this as part of a coach tour. We particularly liked the Castle of Good Hope and it is worth spendind some time there. Also had afternoon tea at the Nelson Hotel which is good but service was very slow-we waited 25 minutes for the tea. The buffet had a good selection of savoury and sweet items and the grounds are beautiful.

“always a great way to get your bearings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

like all the open top buses this takes you to the areas you need to visit and gives you the opportunity to spend as little time as you like there before rejoining the comfy buses for another visit. Good info provided by headphones.

“take it without doubt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I bought 2_days ticket online and got saving of R30.. Nonetheless I was able to do "night trip" + "boat ride". Also the wine tour was included but I found this a waste.. Wouldn't recommend anyone to buy this separately instead hire a cab and go to Stellenbosch for wine testing
