        Good way to see Cape Town
        The Hop-on Hop-off bus is a great way to see Cape Town, but if you plan to go to Tabletop Mountain, you should be on the first bus, or plan to be in a long line. The bus has many stops where it is worth to hop off and take the next bus.

        Excellent value
        The views during the drive were lovely and the wine was great. The only drawback was having to wait for the other guests/having to go with the tours schedule but that’s to be expected with a tour. The tour was a great value at this price.

        Charles and Division lead a fantastic wine tour in Cape Town
        A wonderful tour of Cape Town’s wine regions, led by the brilliant Charles and marvellously steered by Division. Great wines, lovely sights, fantastic stories and knowledge. Much recommended.

        This tour was what we were looking for while in Cape Town. It was everything we wanted to do and had a great time doing it. Our guide was Brahm, he funny and very informative. Our Driver Mohammed was very careful, and we really enjoyed the ride around the peninsula. The tour was well worth the day we spent.

        Charles and Devision were great! I really enjoyed the trip. I'd highly recommend it for others who are looking up for tasting South African wines, visit beautiful farms and hear some puns from Charles. Copious team.

        Amazing tour! Perfect amount of time to see both Cape Point/Cape of Good Hope as well as Simon’s Town to see the penguin colony. Brahm was a wonderful tour guide, so full of knowledge and fun facts and made the tour really enjoyable! Would recommend to anyone coming to Cape Town.

      An amazing experience! Highly recommended. The staff were amazing and friendly. We actually did the breakfast canal cruise. The Canal Cafe was fantastic to accommodate our group of 12. The manager attended to us personally. A very smooth process being part of the canal cruise. The lady captaining the boat even went back to empty a boat to accommodate our big group and another group who wanted to travel back together.

      On a beautiful day the family enjoyed this canal cruise. Enjoyed seeing the buildings from a different perspective. We booked one of the combo deals which included a very tasty burger at Harbour Bridge Hotel. Highly recommended and excellent value.

      I enjoyed the relaxing cruise in the Waterfront Canal from the V&A Waterfront and the CTICC. Didn't use this as a hop-on, hop-off cruise, only as a bit of a sightseeing activity, since I've never been able to see the residential area of the V&A Waterfront.

      The commentary wasn't great, a few small tidbits of info here and there, but overall enjoyed it. Worth the discounted price in March 2021.

      Only found out about this activity a few weeks prior. What a nice way to spend a few hours on a Sunday morning. We took the option that included breakfast at the Harbour Bridge hotel. Lovely setting overlooking the canal. Hopped back on the boat and off at the Battery Park to do some roller-skating at Rollercade. Then hopped back on boat to drop off where we started. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.

      Bought the extra package which included access to 3 of the listed attractions, first we decided we would do the wheel at the waterfront when we arrived at the waterfront this was closed for a team building we then wanted to do the seal island cruise on their brochure it indicated this left at 3.30 pm, got there at 3 pm was told they don’t operate in the afternoons, wow my kids where super disappointed, spoke to someone from the company and he extended the ticket so we could go another day but the problem is we wasted a day going to these places and they where closed!!! Very irritating!
      When asked why the ticket sales office could not have told us about this I was told they do not as they are third parties, well my advise then don’t sell them if you are not willing to make sure they are available. Waste of Money!

      Thank you for your review, which we understand to be about some attractions being closed rather than the quality of our tour. We do share your frustration but it is the middle of winter and the boat companies in Hout Bay do shut down randomly and change times in the afternoon. It's based on weather and passenger demand, Likewise the Wheel failed to inform us that they decided to close at short notice (likely also because of low demand). This is why we offer over 8 attractions to choose from when purchasing this particular package, most being always available (Kirstenbosch, Groot Constantia Wine estate, World of Birds, Township Walk, Free Burger & Chips at the Hard Rock and some more weather dependant ones such as the Wheel, Seal Island and V&A Harbour cruise). I am sorry you did not manage to use some of the others. Our staff tried their best to accommodate you by extending the offer by a day. Whilst this does take more of your time, is an offer you're unlikely to get anywhere else. We will again chat to the relevant attractions to improve their communication to try and improve our offer to other customers. Thanks again for raising your concerns and I do trust that the quality of our tour made up for this inconvenience.

      Great way to explore the city. So many routes to do one day is not enough. Very informative info along the way. The kiddies channel very funny.

      We will be doing it again this December our kids are already asking when are going again. We never do two years in a row the same thing but this was so nice guess we are going to break that rule.
