The red double decker buses are a regular sight in Cape Town for a great reason--it is reasonable priced ride and visits several areas which provide an overview of Cape Town Central. Passengers are able to hop on and off the buses at various locations throughout Cape Town. There are different routes available for purchase including a two day pass.... More

Fantastic value for money the two day pass. Buses run very regularly and include a trip up Table mountain and a harbour boat trip. Easy to fit both in to the same day. On the Blue route get off at the gardens but be aware of the incline. A definite MUST is to stop at the township and visit Teabag... More

There is no pondering - just go to the office on Long St or the V&A Waterfront (or you can even buy from the driver) and buy the ticket. With a 2-day ticket you get a real bargain - sunset ride, harbor cruise, and a break in price. There are 4 separate routes - red, blue, yellow, and purple (this... More

We really enjoyed the blue line a lot. Nice double decker bus with inside or out options. Very good narrative punctuated with fun local music. Waterfront views are incredible. Well worth the $.

This hop-on hop-off bus service has 3 daytime routes, a sunset route and a short harbour cruise. The best way to visit Table Mountain and Kirstenbosch.

This is a must sight view both the bus and boat rides, its a tradition for us when we visit Cape Town and Johannesburg. I wonder why not Durban as this is how you know a City easy and well.

We booked our tickets online, to quote website "to avoid the queues". That was a mistake! We arrived at the kiosk and went to the prebooked stall. Their were two in front who had clearly not booked, and we waited and waited, the queue at the non booked cleared and we still waited. It was only after mentioning TripAdvisor that... More

Thank you for your review. Your 4 star review suggests that you clearly enjoyed our tours despite the slow start in accepting your voucher at the V&A. I am sorry there were 2 customers ahead of you. Our website promises you "lowest price guarantee", which is totally true. I am not sure which website you purchased on so I am... More
