    Splendid location on the water front, good views of the harbour, visitors are photographed before they board and the photograph is awaiting your return. Price is 175 Rand for 4 spins, no reduction for old age pensioners unless they hold South African residency but free for children below 4 years of age.

    Didn't learn as much as we hoped to
    We were very interested to visit the Museum. You probably don't need to buy the 'Skip the Line' ticket as it wasn't busy when we got there. We were a bit disappointed in the museum; there are a lot of very moving accounts on the walls from some of the many people who were forcibly evicted from District 6. However, we couldn't read a lot of the accounts as it was quite dark in the museum. The contents of the museum are very visually striking ,but some of the information is a bit confusing. There was a section that we hoped would explain what the current situation is, but it didn't seem to do so. There are guides who will take you round the museum but we had missed the chance to join the last guided tour. So, I suggest you do a guided tour if you go to the museum to ensure you get the best out of it. We were able to find out more about the current situation re compensation etc, when we went on a walking tour of District 6 on another day.

    A worthwhile day at the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Centre, Cape Town
    We visited the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Centre (admission to that is free) on the same day; they are both on the same complex. We had booked 'Skip the Line' tickets for the Jewish Museum, but that probably isn't necessary as it wasn't busy. However, it's essential that you take Photo ID with you as you have to show this when you pass through security to get entry to any building on the complex -which includes the Garden Synagogue. The Museum was very interesting and the displays in the Holocaust Centre were among the best we've ever seen and we have been to quite a few. Allow plenty of time to see both. There is a nice café there .

    Incompetence its best. The wheel was not at the V&A Waterfront. We were not notified prior and given the chance to change arrangements or get a refund.

    This was a fascinating tour. We learned about the doctor, the patient, the donor, the preparations, the procedure, and the aftermath of the world's first heart transplant surgery. Highly recommend.

    Very good and AMAZING.
    We were allowed into the Castle very quickly and could start our visit. We had to have our tickets scanned and that took some time. Others who did not have to stand in the line, were in before us. Can this be made quicker or less admin?

    We enjoyed everything! Penguin showcase was quite special as there’s benches for you to sit and observe. Jellyfish showcase is such a treat. Sadly missed the feeding of the sharks.

    I am from there now and was told the wheel has not been working for a while now. I wish Trip advisor would have enquired before selling the tickets as today we just wasted money for traveling. How do I go about getting my refund? Please advise

Not worth it IMO especially if you are a solo traveller. You will spend time rushing from place to place to make it worth it. Tour buses can be inconvenient and frustrating to wait for - it’s far easier to use Uber for getting around. Also, they stop at 1630. I tried getting on one for a journey at 1600 and the bus driver told me it was a single use tour which I should start early in the day? I thought I could use the buses for transport any day, it seems not. Entry to museums and galleries does not cost much besides, so the pass is unnecessary. The Stellenbosch wine and cycling tours were a major reason to get the pass, but it turns out but they will not arrange tours for single travelers. So I can’t do any of those. This was hugely disappointing. I did the sunset boat cruise, it was nothing special at all. Overall I’ve paid a lot for a couple of 100 rand drinks vouchers and entry to a few galleries. I also paid for the Premium pass to do the shark tour and saw no sharks. It’s just how it is sometimes. Overall disappointed and would definitely not recommend.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate all feedback we receive from our customers, and I would like to address each of your concerns. 1. Most of our customers are either solo or couples and there is no need to rush from place to place to make it worthwhile as you only need to visit 4 attractions over 3 days to save on entrance fees. We have customers who have saved over 70% of entrance fees. The potential to save money does depend on what you want to visit, so if your primary reason for the pass is to visit museums then the pass is certainly not for you, as you correctly state that they are relatively inexpensive. The entrance fees are listed online, on our brochures and guidebooks so you can determine before you purchase whether it is viable. 2. The tour buses depart on schedule every 20 min from each stop so there is very little waiting time 3. The buses do not stop operating at 16:30. The last departure time is 16:30 and continue on route until 18:00. Contrary to what you state, you can use the buses for the period the pass is valid, i.e., a 3-day pass will give you free transport on the buses for 3 consecutive days. 4. Certain attractions do have minimum entry requirements such as the cycling tour in Stellenbosch (min of 2 guests) of which we make very clear 5. Whilst most customers do get to experience sharks up close, unfortunately it is not something we can guarantee of which we also make very clear

We purchased a 5-day CT city pass, with the HOHO bus. This was really worth the purchase for sightseeing, as lwell as our first trip to Capetown! It included top attractions like Table Mountain, a sunset champagne cruise, and plenty of boat cruises around the harbor and Seal Island to name a few. The one pass allows you to have fun, thrilling, romantic (all in one) experiences! Bonus with the pass are food and drink "vouchers" that you could use, This was really beneficial and the food options are delicious meals! We also did a few wine, gin, and beer tastings along with the thrilling Sky Hi ride! With the 5 days pass we had, we basically did over 30 activities from this package and saved over R2000 per person!

Along with the good, there has to be some bad, but not really all that bad, depending on your preference and what you would like to do, The HOHO bus can take some time getting you around, especially if you have made bookings and appointments. We actually only used the bus on one day to get to Hout Bay and back. It was easier and quicker and more convenient for us to drive around or Uber as some of the places that come with the package aren't exactly on the bus routes.

Also, we picked up that some places on the package aren't always opened, or the address info provided isn't updated with the "city pass" which made it a bit difficult to find or access certain places, with so many other things to do, it really isn't that much of an issue.

From our experience, purchasing this 5-day pass has allowed us to see so much and visit so many different areas in Capetown, allowed us to try new cuisine, and different bars, and experience so many other new things that we haven't done anywhere else in the country without breaking the bank!

If your budget allows, try out the premium experience, Im sure it will be worth it, I'm definitely doing it once I am back in Capetown!

I recommend getting a City Pass. It covers admission into so many things such as the cable car up Table Mountain. It gets you discounts on other things such as a guided wine region tour. When you get your hop on hop off (HOHO) bus ticket, you are given some headphones to keep which you plug into the jack at your seat and it narrates the route. You may sit outdoors up top or indoors down below. It was a joy just taking the blue route all the way around. The drive is very scenic and if you see something you wanna check out, simply hop off. Note: If you want to get the discount when making a booking after you already purchased your pass you would need to make that booking in person at one of the City Pass help desks which is on the HOHO route anyway. It's easy and the staff are very helpful.

What a waste of money. App does not work as they have not updated it. Most places do not accept the pass you want to visit. Weather was bad so cable car did not run so pass waste of time. Lost a considerable amount of money. Buses did not run to times on bus stops. They do not respond to contact by email. Next time I think smart pass may be more convenient and far cheaper. They are very responsive by whatsapp

The City hop on hop off package for Cap Town South Africa is the best deal. Oh wow our family was able to see more sites ever. We had a fantastic time seeing as much as we could and wish we could have stayed longer to see more. We will surly come back and get the package. The package is well with it and more. Great customer service every where we went on the package list. The list gave use so many options we wanted to try to do everything.😊 the meal options were also amazing and the food was wonderful at the places we went to. Thanks for making this a trip to always remember.

The City Sightseeing bus and the City Pass option especially, is a great way to get around Cape Town and visit the major attractions. There are a number of options to choose from, all giving you added benefits like entrance included or vouchers or discounts on entrance fees or meals at certain places. Since we had 7 days in Cape Town, we decided to do the 5 day hop-on hop-off and iventure City Pass which included entrance fees, as the brochure states, to over 70 attractions, that included the Cable Way at Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch gardens, World of Birds, Two Oceans Aquariam, the Cape Wheel, a sunset champagne cruise(stunning!!!) and a number of other boat cruises, free wine tastings, beer tasting at the Beer House, meals at Hard Rock Café – Camps Bay, Mama Africa – Long Street, Mariners Wharf - Hout Bay and so much more as well full day Wine lands and Cape Point tours. In my opinion, it was the best decision.

Do note that some of the iventure vouchers are for places not exactly along the bus stop and may be a little bit of a walk, like Mama Africa or the Beer House, which are on Long Street or not part of the tour at all Spier in Stellenbosch. We did not realise that the wine tour on the Blue Route is not the same as the full day wine lands tour and had missed that mini tour entirely, however we still had full days on each of the tours and colour lines we used.

Remember the weather in Cape Town is very erratic, always keep a hat and warm jacket or raincoat with, these can the very useful when riding on the top deck of the bus as it’s an open top bus.

Great value for money, excellent service from all the consultants, bus drivers as well as the tour guides. My advice is to speak to the consultants and plan your routes/days depending on what you want to see. Michael at the Long Street office, thank you for your excellent service and going the extra mile to help us, you are a star.

We did the three day pass while on Cape Town over the weekend.
The pass is well worth it. We were non stop busy and didn’t have to pay a cent more.
We did wine farms, sunset cruises, the hop on hop off bus tour , a tuk tuk tour and much more

The only thing I was disappointed in was that the cable way for table mountain was under construction so we weren’t able to go up.

The value for money however was still very worth it
