Much like the buses in London and Paris, these provide a narrated tour of the city as you hit all the major spots in town. We did the RED tour which concentrates on the city, table mountain, etc. For the outlying areas we took a private car so we could visit wineries, etc we wanted at our own pace. The buses are clean, well staffed, and come frequently. It's supposed to be every 20 mins and usually hits the mark... a few times we waited longer. All in all a fabulous service. Definitely buy a 2 day pass (if you have the time) as there's so much to see. The views are so amazing that even if you never get off the bus, worth doing. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I can really recommend the City Sightseeing Tours! I bought a two day ticket and did the red and the blue tour and also the canal cruise. All were really nice! I didn't do much hopping on and off but it was still absolutely worth is! You get to see a lot of Cape Town and it's surroundings, the commentary is quite interesting and although this might not be soo important for some people, the staff was really friendly :)

Truly a beautiful city and it has moved to the top of the list of favorite cities. The V&A Waterfront is great place (harbor) to spend the day and lots to do within minutes: Two Oceans Aquarium, V&A Waterfront Shopping Center, shops all around the harbour, Nelson Mandela Gateway which provides a ferry to Roben Island (location where Nelson Mandela and other politicians were prisoners ... we did not get to make it due to inclement weather). Thumbs up on places to go and there is someone for everyone ...

This is a great way to get around Cape Town and beyond. One route is the City tour, the other takes you out via Kirstenbosch Gardens, World of Birds (so much more than birds!), and on to Hout Bay which is delightful for seeing seals and having lunch around the bay. It's a 'hop on, hop off' experience, so plan your trip to spend some time at one or more of the places along the route. This is the link for more information http://www.citysightseeing.co.za/capeTown.php. Enjoy!

An easy way to get around in the city. They offered two routes. We opted for more of the city and less of the outskirts. We were happy with our decision.
The cable car was closed for repair so the bus took us to Signal Hill. Great views though we were bummed about not visiting Table Mountain.
