This became a family tradition, going on this bus ride for my daugther's birthday. Her way of having fun: on the top dek, listening to the recordings. Highly recommended - for you to relax and yet have fun. Thanks!

It was lovely travelling and seeing Cape Town and what I like most is hop on and hop off anyway and still use same ticket. Thats a brilliant idea I will definitely go and use the Johannesbu one too.

The hop on hop off buses in Cape Town are an amazing way to see Cape Town. My suggestion would be to sit upstairs, take a hat, sunscreen and water.... For garden lovers, I would suggest getting off at Kirstenbosch, and strolling the amazing gardens, have lunch there... Or for wine lovers, get off a Kloof nek, hop on the... More

This recommendation is for the V&A shopping centre. As a local resident, it is my centre of choice for weekly grocery shopping as well as grabbing a lunch/coffee with our without friends. Great ambiance...there's always a sense of being "a traveller" while staying on home soil! ;)

This is an absolutely fabulous way of touring around the peninsula without having to worry about traffic and parking. Best sights to see - Hout bay (my favorite), Waterfront, Kirstenbosch. Absolutely fantastic sights around District 6 and Camps Bay.

I'm a Captonian and decided to take my family on the bus tour. What an experience!! I felt like a tourist in my own city. Although we know of all the places in the city, we've never really been to all these places and it gave us the opportunity to experience the beauty of it. The hop on and hop... More
