Although we have traveled all over the world this was our first Red Bus type tour. I highly recommend it to get a overall view of the Cape Town area. They have headphones in many languages that explain what you are seeing as you travel. You can sit out in the open on the top deck of the bus or down inside, depending on the weather and your physical abilities (no wheelchairs on top). You go through the downtown, the business district, historical districts, all the way to Table Mountain and then over to the West Coast where the beaches and houses looks like the California coast near Malibu (think rich and famous).
This is the best way to get to Table Mountain as there are no parking issues. You just get off the bus and then when your visit is complete you get on the next bus, You can get off the bus at any stop all over the city and then get on another bus whenever you feel like it--all for one reasonable fee.

Great 2 day ticket that enabled us to do the canal cruise, wine tour, and the two circuit lines. The busses stopped right in front of our hotel door and was very convienient for both days, enabled us to do the table mountain cable ride, beach, central shopping and walks. Capetown seemed safe and we had a great time. The canal cruise was not coordinated well with the main line – we had to wait for 45 minutes after getting off the main line since the boat left 3 minutes prior to our bus. Since we were there in June (winter) the sunset drive to signal hill bus tour was cancelled which was a dissappointment.

It’s a great way to sightsee Cape Town. I had a two-day ticket including Red & Blue Bus and Canal Cruise starting on 4th June. The staff who responded to my email, as well as the ones at the office in front of Two Oceans Aquarium were very kind and helpful. The driver and guides were great, too. I did enjoy it, but unfortunately the weather was so bad and we were freezing inside the bus. It would have helped us to enjoy more, if you had a heater in the bus.

we did the RedCity Tour. HOHO bus is the simplest way to get a glimpses of cape Town. after seeing the whole we re-visited, on our own, all the points of interest which we wanted to see. the tour as well as the commentary is very well planned.

We took the one day ticket online(it's slightly cheaper) and did the blue route.it is very convenient,cheapest and wonderful way of exploring cape town. Blue route is if u want to explore scenic kirstembosch garden drive,wineries.red route focuses More on historical places inside cape town,and also the must to do table mountain. I would recommend doing bus route on one day n red route on second.it would save u lot of money and would b v convenient as you can hop on and hop off as per your likings.
