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.

I did the red, blue, yellow and the canal cruise - they were a good overview. I learned a lot but you really need to do the tours twice. It is just too !much to absorb at one time.

Wonderful way to get to know the city. Also, the audio guide along the way is of very high quality.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

A great way to see most of the city and if you take the red bus tour you can do as we did, first stop at Table Mountain and take the cable car to get a great view of the whole city and then relax at the beach in Camps Bay - "kill two birds with one stone".
