The free walking tour is very interesting! Rico, our guide, was very good and he gave us a bunch of information about the history and the culture of the city and the country! I would strongly recommend it to anyone who'd like to visit a less known spot of the city!

We decided to celebrate a birthday with friends and family by using the City Sightseeing bus. What a wonderful experience. Although we are all Capetonians we saw and learned lots more of our beautiful Mother City this way. The staff members were all helpful and friendly, the price affordable and the information spot on. I will recommend this to every... More

The Red Bus tour is available in many cities around the world. What makes this one different is where it is!! The views are fantastic, the commentary amusing and the feeling welcoming. We had the 2 day pass, which gives you time to do 3 different routes, including hop on hop off. It is very good value for money, but... More

We spent a day on this bus, jumping off a number of times to re-join later. Also, one can buy Table Mountain tickets as part of the price thereby saving the queues at Table Mountain. They have commentary in various languages and do a great job in covering both the history of the town and travelling around the larger area... More

This must be everyone's first To Do thing in Cape Town on day one as it gives you the best oreintation around the city and surrounding environs. We went on both the Red and Blue route but would also recommend the yellow route too. What is economic about this is most attractions like Hout Bay, Kirstenbosch Botanical garden, Bird Sanctuary,...

Good overview for a Cape Town beginner, be sure to grab the flyer and best if you know upfront where you would like to get out and what you would like to do there. Stops at great places, must visits are Table Mountain of course, Waterfront, Kirstenbosch and many more.

We try to do the hop on/off buses where ever we go as they are an excellent way to get orientated in a new city. This was one of the best. We had a two day ticket and on the first day did the red route which allowed us to go up Table Mountain. In the afternoon we did the... More
