“Red Bus Tour- really good way to see the city”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We landed in Cape Town on 25th of Oct and within a few hours we were on the bus. The tour itself if you didn't get off would last about 2 hours and you get to see the best parts of Cape Town. For 150 Rand each it was really good value for money and you get a pair of ear phones free to listen to the commentary (which has 16 different languages) on the way round. You can pay an extra 100 Rand each to have a two day pass which in turn can get you money off attractions in Cape Town. Also with the two day pass the Canal Cruise is free. The tour had 2 routes the Red Route City tour which we went on and a Blue Route which takes you out on the Mini Peninsula tour. With buses every 15 or so minutes it was very convenient.
With 18 different stops some of which include the V&A waterfront, Table Mountain and Camps Bay there is so much to see. An absolute must stop is at table Mountain, you would not be disappointed.
Overall this an excellent way to see the city in an easy to understand way and with the ability to hop on and off as much as you like I would recommend to all.

“TAKE THE BUS”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Great value hop on / off bus services. See the whole City with a commentary in a single day. Hop off to spend time at the mountain, Camps Bay and the V&A.

“A must when you first get to Cape Town”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This helps you get your bearings and to see both city center and beautiful coastal area which can include a stop off at Camps Bay which is beautiful. One of the highlights during our stay in s Africa. You can also extend your pass to a second day and use the water barge too. Or the more adventurous go on a motorbike with sidecar - that looked great fun.

“Worthwhile introduction to the city”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We quite like this sort of tour because it gives you the geography and background in a two hour trip. We used the ability to get off and then on again to visit the castle and do lunch at the waterfront and then get back on the bus.

“Good way to see whole city”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We jumped on the city tour bus and hopped off at Camps bay. It was a great tour that takes you through Cape Town and out to the coastal town too. It also stops at Table Mountain cable car which is very convenient. Would recommend
