This is a must do activity in Cape Town. Costs 220R for an all day ticket on the red route and a little bit more if you want the red and blue route. Goes to all the must see attractions including table mountain and stops...More

Cape Town City Sightseeing offers a wide range of tours to cater for every budget. We took the Red bus one day pass on the Blue Route, this is the best way to see Cape Town and some of the points of interest!

Well organised and run by city sightseeing. Could not fault staff, efficiency etc. All we spoke to managed 4 wineries in total for the day bar one couple who managed 5. I suggest 4 would cap it. Recommend Allen Bleue for a cheese platter.

Excellent tour guide. More than expected knowledge of the local area from wildlife to politics. Thorough information and interesting knowledge. Great inclusive day. Hike down from Cape point optional but so worth it. Really recommend this company and would book with them again.

The best part of the red route was the trip up Table Mountain. Otherwise a fairly unremarkable tour.

Perfect way to sit back and relax and see all the great views Cape Town has to offer. We found the bus very reliable and the drivers very friendly. The commentary along the way was interesting
