“Tourist bus.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Fantastic way to see Cape Town, as elsewhere, you can get on and off at will, and for us, wanting to get to the waterfront, it was perfect, as well as getting into the heart of town.

“The " Fairest Cape"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The air is clean, there is less noise and you don't go around looking over your shoulder all the time. Amenities are just a walking distance from one another. The people are friendly and welcoming. There is so much to see and so little time. I'm already planning my next trip

“Beautiful way to see the Mother City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

It was a lovely sunny day and we sat on the top of the bus in the sun. The drive around Cape Town was beautiful and the talk was very informative. Would definitely recommend this as a way to see Cape Town city centre especially is you are short of time.

“Hop On!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

we brought the two day ticket which gives you discounts off the Aquarium , three nice restaurants in the V&A Waterfront, a free canal ride and winelands tour, as well as discounts to attractions on the route.

This is a great, good value way to see Cape Town and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately Table Mountain cable car was closed during our visit so the bus went instead to SIgnal Hill which did have fabulous views over Cape Town. The commentary is informative and comes in a wide variety if languages. Sit up the top for the best views.
