As a South African citizen even, I really really enjoyed this tour. You can get on and off as you please, without needed to find parking (notoriously difficult in Cape Town). My advice, stop over in Camps Bay for a Martini on the beach with your lunch, hop off at the Waterfront for some shopping, and get off at Desmond Tutu's church and have a walk around the city and it's markets (particularly on Thursdays and Saturdays)

We went on the township tour with a guide who was a coloured. It was very interesting and he showed us all aspects of living for all races. The poorer living areas were kept very clean. They had so little in worldy goods but a lot of pride in their living standards

A must to give you some bearings on the Cape. There are a variety of tours we took the peninsula and Cape centre and it was definitely worthwhile

I am not one to take city sightseeing buses but this was what we did to get around from Camp's Bay into downtown Capetown and around back home again. It actually was quite a good way to get the lay of the land, and also relieve our eyes from reading about the area and turn our ears on to what the "recording" had to tell us- which was quite informative.

Good value to get around- buy the two day pass and hop on and off as you tour around- it is a relief not to have a car at times!

and several stops.

We took the City Sightseeing buses two consecutive days. It was an excellent choice taking into account the size of the city. It is also a good way to avoid security incidents during your vacations.
The commentary is also very good. You will learn a lot about different places in the city while you are crossing them.

There are two different buses, the blue one and the red one. They go around all Cape Town including Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and Groot Constantia. They also include a mini tour in Groot Constantia (Wineyards).
