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

Loved every min of it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This is a great way to see the city of Cape Town as you have the ability to spend as much time and enjoy whatever area you're interested in without being rushed. We definitely took advantage of the hop on hop off feature.... even spending an afternoon at Camps Bay beach one day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Would recommend this 2 day trip to everyone, it's convenient and very inexpensive and covers everything. The bus operators are courteous and very helpful, thank you Viator

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We have used this unbeatable tour on several trips to Cape Town. It is an essential ingredient of any visit to this wonderful city and the commentary on the buses is both informative and thoroughly recommended. It is the easiest way to obtain your bearings and if you have a limited time is ideal for visiting all the main attractions i.e. Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Hout Bay, Camp Bay etc. Ideally, if you have the time, take advantage of the 2 day ticket which covers both the Red and Blue bus routes and includes a free evening trip to the Lions Head and a trip on the canal. Excellent value for money and a 'must' for any visitor to Cape Town. Book a flexible ticket on line with Viator prior to your trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This is a great value, which allowed us to get a great overview of Cape Town. Although I had understood that the 1 day pass only allowed access to either the red OR blue route, in fact we were able to access both. If we'd had time to do a 2-day pass, the blue line also connects with the purple line, which accesses several wineries. And by being able to hop off, we could have lunch where and when we wanted, as well as enjoy a late afternoon glass of wine overlooking the beach.
