We had been to Cape Town before and driven around the city. This time we decided to try the Hop-On Hop-Off buses. We saw so much more from the bus tours. We did all 4 routes completely These buses are the best way to get an overal view of a city.

We bought the 2 day pass and did many of the offered activities. We only did one of the walking tours and, although the guide was good, there were 50 people, which is way too many to hear what the guide was saying. Otherwise, the Hop-On Hop-Off bus was a great value and we would recommend it.

Great way to see the city and surrounding area and good value for money.
Beware of the waiting time at table mountain when we went up it was 2 hours if you had a ticket and 4 hours without one... Needless to say we didn't wait.
We also did the free walking tour of the 6th district which I enjoyed, there was not much to see but the guide painted a great picture... Be prepared to give big tips as this is how they make there money

I booked two days' ticket and wished I had more time to enjoy the stops....... Accidentally jumped on the blue tour when was intending to join the red tour - but was easily rectified with the help of the friendly staff on board and had the added bonus of then enjoying the yellow tour.
The blue tour was enjoyable on day two but was longer than anticipated so only just squeaked in to do the Robben Island tour at 1pm - Plan ahead folks !!

This Hop-On-Hop- Off Tour is about as good as it gets. We have done these in major cities all over the World and this is the best yet.

The Hop on Hop Off Tour in Cape Town was excellent, we only wish we had more time to see more things, but we decided to head straight to the Table Mountain stop and after the weather had cleared and we made it to the top, it left the rest of the day some what short for us to stop at the Wineries. All in all, we felt safe and the commentary was excellent and informative. We took our voucher to the ticket booth and once again Viator was on the money, everthing went like clockwork

We enjoyed the day so much. We took the blue linewhich took us to the township. The hour long tour is something we will never forget. If you are ever in Capetown make sure you add this bus to the itinerary
