We had the most wonderful weekend! From start to finish, everyone was extremely helpful. All the bus drivers were fantastic drivers and we never felt unsafe. The drivers went out of their way to make sure we knew when buses would be leaving. The buses were clean and sanitised regularly. Even though we have lived in Cape Town our whole lives, we learnt so much from the commentary! All the staff were more than happy to answer our questions and assist us in planning our trip.

It was wonderful to sit back and enjoy the elevated views without the stress of driving and parking. The premium ticket was incredible value as it includes two days of unlimited bus tours, a harbour cruise, and a sunset bus up Signal Hill.

We would 100% recommend this fabulous company!

We took a tour of Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. The driver Jonathan is very experience. All the stops are great, except Franshoek, restaurant was overcrowded and they know nothing of wine tasting. In Stellenbosch the guide Brahm made it clear he want only the young and fit to walk with him.. didn't all the passengers pay for the same experience? Otherwise a must do for those who love the countryside and wine.

My friend and I completed a free city walking tour (unfortunately, I can't remember our guides name) in December 2021, due to COVID and tourism being low we were the only guests! Our guide went above and beyond as we got there a bit late and he was about to leave but then happily took us on our tour and even spent more time with us than was expected. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour as we had spent quite a bit of time walking around the city on our own and would NEVER have found all the hidden artifacts and historical sites without having a guide. Very thorough, informational and our guide was born and raised in South Africa and participated in the anti apartheid protests and able to provide many personal insights into the history and current state of the country. There is definitely something for everyone in this one.

We booked a day long tour on the hop on hop off bus, only the hop ON option was non existent. Twice on our route the bus simply drove past us without stopping to give us a chance to get on. We were stranded at a winery and had to Uber to our next winery since the bus didn’t bother to stop to pick us up. Lastly, at the final stop at Groot Constancia, we were waiting on the last bus to pick us up at 17.11. The bus came much later and also my husband had to stand in the middle of the road to ensure the bus actually stops to pick us up as they past us before twice without stopping.
The bus stopped when they saw my husband standing in the road, and just when we thought the bus stopped to finally pick us up, the driver did not bother opening the door and kept driving as if he didn’t even see us. I was waving our tickets to make sure he saw we had tix to board the bus.
This service is unacceptable and absolutely not worth the money. We could have Ubered for a lot less and had a much better service. Absolutely do not recommend, abysmal service.

Thank you for your review which is somewhat misleading. You clearly made your own way to the Constantia wine region and by your own account "our final stop at Groot Constantia" suggests that you tried to join the tour backwards. Our marketing material is very clear in suggesting that you join our tour in the City and furthermore clearly shows that Groot Constantia is the first of 3 stops in the Constantia valley. Our bus stop at Groot Constantia (and all others) are very clearly branded and marked. Given that you arrived by Uber I can only imagine that you were dropped at the satellite wine tasting center near the front gate, which means you missed 90% of the Groot Constantia estate. I can understand that your husband would have stood in the road to try and stop our tour as this is nowhere near our route. We stop only where it is safe to do so (as our demarcated bus stops) - we generally don't stop in the middle of the road. I am sorry you felt you got less that you bargained with but can only suggest to readers that you: 1) Join the tour at the V&A or in the City (not at one of the wine stops). All included in 1 ticket! 2) You ensure you come to a branded bus stop - we don't stop illegally in the middle of the road. 3) Please check our route map and timetable which clearly shows the order of bus stops. We carry many very happy passengers who all manage to understand how the system works. Hopefully we can welcome you back one day soon and you too may find it very enjoyable.

It is a perfect way to see the city, and not have to be a driver. The buses go through all the major spots and all rides felt safe.
My parents exploring Cape Town for the first time felt like they really know it after the tours.
My only disappointment was not being able to enjoy the Canal and Harbour tours due to the weather. I recommend that CitySightSeeing puts out an alert for this prior to the day so that you are informed and can change your trip therafter.

As a family of almost 4 adults, we decided to use the hop on hop off bus tour in cape Town as we have used it before in Singapore, Malaysia and Barcelona.
The 2 lines, yellow and red, has covered most of ct tourist attraction areas. Staff at various stops were extremely helpful to assist with times.. Tracking of the next bus could also be done via a live app.

All buses were kept hygienic, with mandatory sanitizing of hands prior to seating down and masks to be worn at all times.

A quick mention to the free walking tour from 81 Long street, this tour was excellent, approx 90 mins, also highly recommended.

I would suggest for all tourist to utilize the services of the hop on hop off bus when visiting the mother city!

Ciao for now!

My husband and I loved the tour by Hop-on-Hop-off bus. In fact, as we came to Cape Town for the very first time our initial plan was to rent a car, however, we changed our mind as we suddenly popped in at their central office unplanned! We managed to see a lot of touristic places in just 3 days, the busses were really convenient, we could listen to comments in earphones all the way, the price was reasonable and being around other tourists makes it so much more fun and exciting. The only major downside was that the hop on hop off buses only go in one direction which was inconvenient and time consuming because it would follow that route again. Really wish they would add buses moving in both directions.

We had a fantastic day in Cape Town, with City Sightseeing making everything just that much easier. There was no need to wait around for transport, no icky taxy journeys, all the nastiness of transport in an unknown city was eliminated through the use of the hop-on hop-off.

Would really recommend to anyone who wants to touch upon the highlights of Cape Town, but might be a bit afraid of the notorious Capetonian traffic!

What an amazing experience. 3 Day pass, Visited the aquarium and met some hungry penguins, sat in the Kirstenbosch tea garden for scones and tea, Had an amazing sunset tour, watching the sun setting in the west and the full moon coming over from the East. Stopped off for a beer at the cable car access point, Did the walking tour off long street with a very well informed tour guide Lungo, who greeted the locals as we walked from long street , walked into the company gardens, saw amazing architecture, saw the burned our parts of parliament, all the way to the castle and back up. Saw a piece of the berlin wall of all things outside St. Georges. Went for a walk on the beach at Camps bay. Ran out of time for the wine tours, as we drove past the vineyards, we were met with the amusing sight of the last stragglers about to miss the last bus, running forth with glasses half filled with wine, and my belly rumbled at the smells coming off of fisherman's Warf from the smell of cooking fish in Houtbay. If only I had more time. <3

We enjoyed the Premium Hop on Hop off tour. It was so worth it might suggest that one actually do the Deluxe. There is just too much to do and see and the bus stops at all the major city attractions. Plan you day and your time at each location, the first day do the stop over of 30 minutes at each location until you know exactly where you would like to spend more time. We ran out of time and missed our Harbour cruise and sunset bus ride to Signal Hill. The bus was hassle free and worth it. I will do again.
