2-Day option is the most fantastic. Open loof bus gets attraction anywhere, but Cape Town's open loof is more than the best. It connect every tourist point with language guide. If you are new in Cape Town, just take this bus and enjoy.

“The City's Hop-On Bus Tours are Must-Do's!!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Best way to get acquainted with the City's many features and to get around. Easy to hop on and off and your favorite points of interest after you do the 2 hour tour, or any where in the middle. Busses pick you up every 15-20 minutes depending on week day or weekend, and are usually on time, and you can buy tickets on the bus (or for less $$ online). Both blue & red lines are worth-while, so save and get a 2-day combo ticket! The best of Cape Town on these routes, and excellent interesting narrative, along with some African music, the entire route! Wear the head phones!

“Both the Blue and Red buses are the way to see Cape Town!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

If you really want to see Cape Town, buy a two-day pass so you can take either bus. The buses share some of the same route and with the two-day pass, you can use both buses in the same day if you want to see different things. The commentary is great and the staff is very helpful. We took the entire Blue route in the morning, stopping at Kirstenbosch gardens, and then hopped on to the Red bus in the afternoon after a great lunch at the Market on the Wharf and then saw a few sights in town. It's a great value and highly recommended.

“Great trip!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We booked a 2 day ticket and did both the red route and blue route on consecutive days. The red route was great to see table mountain and district 6, but the rest of the route was probably walkable. We did however get a free canal cruise which was lovely. The blue route was spectacular-definitely worth doing! Kirstenbosch is a must see, especially on a nice day, and the wine routes were fab! An easy and good value way to get around the city!
