“City Bus Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Great tour to orientate yourself with the layout of Cape Town. Interesting and informative narrative accompanied the tour. So many places to visit or return to. Great 2 day price with discounts for various other attractions. Free taxi ride to the Groote Schuur Hospital to visit the Transplant Museum (and return to your hotel), with the city tour ticket.

“Try the red and blue line Hop On, Hop Off bus!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We took the red line Hop on, Hop off bus..perfect for sightseeing the city and beach towns...then we took the blue line and went to the botanical gardens, the wine country, Houts Bay, and the beach towns again...a terrific way to get an overview of the city and surroundings!

“Best thing to do as your first outing in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have been in this hop on hop off bus tour 2 twice, once in 2004 and now again in 2012. Both were fantastic insights to the city of Cape Town, and I highly recommend this as the very first thing you do once you get here. Both. Tours depart often from the waterfront, the tickets are inexpensive but the insight you will get form just one round trip will put you in good stead for the remainder of you trip never mind talking as if you were a local when tell you friends about Cape Town when you get home

“Hop on Hop off Bus- Red and blue line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We paid R220 per person for the hop on hop off bus for a 2 day ticket (booked online, normal price on the bus/ticket office is R250). It was real value for money as it took us to all the important sights in and around Cape Town. We could hop on and off at the various sights. Included in the 2-day ticket is a free canal cruise (not worth taking), and a night cruise (we did not have time to do, but seems like a nice opportunity to take a picnic basket and see the sunset).
