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.

Hop-On Hop-Off, both Red ( to Table Mountain and Bantry Bay) and Blue (city and wine areas) routes enable good value (195 Rand Per Person) ways to see this wonderful city. In hot weather wear sun bloc in wet weather sit up front or down below!

This really is the only way to see Cape Town. Get on and off right outside all the major tourist attractions. As an independent tour guide I could not compete with this amazing service. These drivers have the patience of Jobe getting you to the perfect spot to see the city and environs. There is even a wine bus that... More

The cheapest and best way to see Cape Towns best. For 14 stops you pay R170 to see what Cape Town has the offer. The bus goes around the CBD, then heads to KirstenBosch, constantia (where you can hop off at Constantia nek and do a wine tour) Wine tour at Constantia Nek including museum tour and free wine glass...

We had a 2 day pass which worked perfectly. Gets you around the city & allows you to make choices of what to get off & see. Takes you out to Camps Bay, District 6 (wouldn't recommend getting off here), Long Street (nothing much to see), Botanical Gardens, Table Mountain, V&A Wharf, plus loads of other places as well. Good... More

If you need to see Cape Town from all corners you can take this hop on and off bus. Hop on and off as you please and stop whenever you want to get off and do activities. Many languages offered and it's packed with information. You will not regret this one
