Perfect way to see Cape Town

Fabulous Road Trip
What a splendid way to see Cape Town. The red bus service is a professional and friendly offering to both tourists and locals alike. The buses are managed by excellent drivers considering the peninsula roads (like Kloof and Constantia Nek) travelled. Online tracking on the Cape Sightseeing website allows you to see when the next bus will be arriving at your stop-off.

Great activity
We had a wonderful time on the tour. It's definitely a must-do Cape Town activity for locals and tourists alike. I was disappointed that the Castle of Good Hope is not included.

Awesome time
Apr 2021
I always have the best time on these tours. Drivers are friendly, safe and contribute to the general, awesome atmosphere. I am a Capetonian and have lived here for most of my life but I'm still in awe of the awesome sights we get to experience from Kirstenbosch to Hout Bay. Awesome way to see the city without having to worry about driving and tasting some wines along the way. Will be back!

Mar 2021
My husband and I have joined hop on hop off bus tours in many cities around the world, but this one surpassed them all. It included a harbor tour, canal tour and sunset bus ride. We loved the music so much, we purchased the cd. We enjoyed the interesting dialogue and found the drivers very friendly. A great experience.

City Bus Tour Cape Town
Apr 2021
We did the tour on 3 April 2021. It was WOW! Friendly staff , Busses on time etc . Little concern regarding COVID precautions - Maybe do a little more sanitizing - example on rails at stairs to the top . But staying safe is everybody's own responsibility - so we sanitized a lot on the tour. I will recommend the Bus Tour FOR SURE!!!!!!!

BRILLIANT!!!
Mar 2021
I have seen the world on hop-on hop-off busses and Cape Town's busses are BY FAR the best. Drivers are friendly, professional and helpful. Busses are in top 'nic'. Xolani - the manager is an absolute gem - he certainly knows how to get things organised. We bought the Mega Pass and it was absolute VALUE FOR MONEY!!! ps I see the review asks for comments on tipping but one is limited to responses. There was absolutely no expectation of tipping - staff clearly did their jobs with pride and one got the sense that they were only too happy to serve you.
