We bought asn all day pass and rode 3 of the routes...all were great and the views were incredible. Hopping off we could see things at a slower pace and shortly... More

Great value, prompt service, interesting commentary and good quality headphones. My 8 year old enjoyed the kids commentary channel. Do take time to do the township tour if you can, - you are met off the bus by a guide who will show you round, you have to pay extra for the ticket but it is not much. It takes... More

The Red bus has 2 routes . The blue line "mini peninsular tour "gave a good overview of the Kirstenbosch gardens and the Capetown beaches. Had we stayed longer we would have taken a 2 day pass and done the "red " route as well .Well worth the money .

I booked the two day tour which for me was the best value with regards of what I wanted to see. I managed the Red, Blue, Purple as well as the Sunset and Harbour Cruise. I hardly had to wait anytime for a bus on any of the stops and all the staff I encountered were really polite. I did... More

The best way to... More

The hop on hop off bus is a ver efficient way of transportation in Capetown. It covers a big area with many stops. The schedule is ok. Not a long waiting time. Value for money.

Sitting in a open double decker bus and seeing the city and surrounds is a good way to spend the day. You notice so much more than when you are driving. All the good stops are included...and you dont have to worry about parking. A bottle of water, strong sunscreen and a hat is a must.

Easy to book. The bus tour was interesting and reliable with regular busses and the views are stunning. It takes you to the Waterfront, near the rodden island tour ferry and to the cable car at the bottom of table mountain. It also stops off in the city centre. The tour bus has a set route and only goes in... More

Was rainy our first day and we did the bus tour. Gave us a good overview of city setup and what there was to see. We enjoyed the audio commentary as well.
