I had a great time on and off the bus but I feel it would be much better if you charge an inclusive fee for the bus and the off the bus activities like wine tasting etc.

I have been in CT over 3 times and this is the first time I took the red bus! I recommend that everyone goes on it at least once. The blue peninsula route is so picturesque and amazing. We stopped off in Houtbay for a while, camps bay and then V@A waterfront for the harbour cruise. I learned so much history about CT that I didn't know before. It was both eye-opening and insightful. Also, you save a lot of money by just hopping on and off as you please. The bus was clean, on time and efficient. A great way to get around for sure.

It was great to share this experience with family and friends. Please go prepared with a rain jacket and sun hat. We had a heavy shower of rain in the middle of our bus trip, but fortunately the weather changed and we enjoyed sunny skies the rest of the way.

Although it is hop-on hop-off don't be misled you do need to complete each tour to get back to your start as buses only run in one direction. The blue route takes 3 hours and the red route 1.5 hours. Each one is fine to do as a sightseeing tour but not a good choice if you want to use the bus as a means of getting around and visiting certain spots on the route. Frustratingly the bus will often wait for 5-10 minutes at a stop before moving on.

Thank you for your review. Our routes are indeed circular (as are all other hop on hop off tours worldwide) and yes, they are as long as you describe. Not sure how we can make them shorter as there is a mountain in the center of Cape Town that we have to drive around. Both main routes do include a 5-10 minute Stop at their furthermost point - which allows passengers to make use of the bathroom if they would like to stay on the same bus. We encourage our guests to sit back and enjoy the commentary and scenery whilst visiting all the attractions. I am sorry we could not meet your expectations.
