We were recommended the hop on hop off red city bus tour and weren't disappointed. This was such a great way to see Capetown and get a really good feel for the city. We liked the way you could change routes to extend what you saw. A very frequent service meant this was so flexible that you could stop and... More

For the second time I took a trip with my wife and her sister and husband. Once again we thoroughly enjoyed the on an off trip to Hot Bay where we had lunch at the harbour. The rest of the trip back to the Waterfront via Clifton beach was great. A bus ride to remember.

We visited Cape Town by train and spent a long weekend there. We had no need to hire a vehicle and we visited a number of destinations through city sight seeing which was part of the package. It was thoroughly enjoyable, very convenient and the staff wete friendly and efficient. I will recommend this service to anyone visiting the mother... More

This is a lovely experience and a "must do" when visiting Cape Town. I live in Cape Town and I took my family on the City Sightseeing Red Buss experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learned so much about the City we did not know. We definitely want to do it again some time to soon. I recommend... More

It was not the first time on the Red Bus. I keep on going back because I enjoy it so much. The whole experience is something on its own. It is impossible to visit all the proposed sceneries on one day. I suggest that you decide before hand which ones to visit otherwise you have to do the two day... More

If you ever wish to sight see in Cape Town do it on a bus! This is such a great way of touring around our city. Its surprising how few people realise just how vast & spread out Cape Town is. There are various tours available & you choose depending on what you want to do & see. You can... More

We took a trip on the Red Bus on the 27th December 2016. What a great way to spend quality time with family. It caters for the disabled as well and made it really worth our Cape Town trip. I have visited family in Cape Town many a times but we decided to go on different excursions last December. Well... More

What an amazing experience! From friendly and professional staff, right up to busses being on time. This was a seamless and really a marvellous experience. You get to choose between routes and our outing included Kirstenbosch, Great Constantia, Hout Bay, Camps Bay, etc. Our departure point was in the V&A waterfront, along Long Street. I loved the insightful and interesting... More
