This was very good. A splendid way to explore the city. The guide was very friendly & very informative. She did a splendid job. Because of the windy conditions we could not go up to the Table Mountain by cable cars and went only half way, but the rest of the tour was good.

A shame it was cloudy as this meant we couldn't go in the cable car.

The visits to historical sites, Table Mountain, and the general bay area was wonderful. The stop at a diamond store was too long (the demonstration of diamond cutters was not available at that time) and not of interest.

Because of the bad weather in july, the cableway was closed :-( The city tour was ok. Capetown is a beatiful green city.

It was excellent to spend a half day to have an idea of the capetown city. Though we could not go on the cable car, it was fabulous to see the mountain from the signal hill. We went to the capetown peninsular tour the day before the day we went for this tour. Tourist who are in short of time to join the peninsular tour, this is a good option.

The tour was nice. Our tour guide, Rich was quite knowledgeable and really friendly. We got a little bit of history of Cape Town and some of the back roads. We did not get to Table Mountain though as it was quite cloudy. It's sort of a crap shoot trying to get access. But I'm told the view is amazing once you do. Cheers!

Tour was just OK. Weather was bad, so didn't go to table mountain; the lift was closed. Went to Signal hill for the noon canon firing ceremony, which was good. The rest of the tour (perhaps "fill in" because table mountain was closed) duplicated the route of the red and blue hop-on trolly. I'd suggest do the blue trolly line for sightseeing and make your way to table mountain cable ride on your own - either taxi or red hop-on.

The day I took this tour Table Mountain cable was closed due to weather. Tour was OK, but knowing the city better now I'd recommend taking the blue hop-on tour (it hits really all of the important stops) and then either the red hop-on or a taxi to get to the Table Mountain cable.

Table mountain part of trip need reworking. Unless you pre book gondola ride you wait 15 - 30 minutes in ticket line followed by 15 minute wait to board gondola up and down resulting in 15 minutes max time on the mountain.

The Table Mountain part of the tour was well worth it. It was an incredible experience. The Cape Town Half-Day Tour was O.K. but maybe a little too rushed.

Pleasant, knowledgeable guide. However, I did not expect to spend so much time inside (on a good day for weather) the city's main museum. That I could have done myself.

Didn't get to go up the cable car to table mountain due to clouds. The rest of the tour was OK.

Table Mountain was wonderful! The weather was amazing. But the tour guide was not really good. Mobile phone was constantly ringing, guy was trying to answer mobile, drive a bus and meanwhile was giving us some information. We spent a lot of time in castle, checking the uniform of soldiers, while the time for Table Mountain was only 1 hour, inclusive of long queue to the ticket office. Taking into consideration great weather I'd better spend 2-3 hours on the top of mountain instead... As a conclusion I'd better recommend Hop on - Hop off bus + Table Mountain
