Turki_A, May 2022
fun and beautiful a tour of Cape Town with unforgettable moments. I watched the city up close, walked around it, and experienced various moments in different places.
Great user friendly experience
Sharene_L, May 2022
Kirstenbosch Gardens so beautiful and how easy it was to get around and learn about CT. The earphones allow one to learn the history as you go along the routes
Very enjoyable even for locals
Walda_B, May 2022
Very good value for money, I would like more info about the statues and old buildings in the City tour ands harbour cruise rather than the celebrities who stayed where. The sunset bus is a must even though the toilets on Signal Hill are disgustingly dirty, so make sure to use the clean toilets at the Waterfront before you go on the bus.
Great all-round experience

We had an awesome 2days on the bus, We didn’t expect the world class experience. The Staff are very friendly and very trustworthy. I forgot my phone on the bus and I received it in less than 30 minutes . Big ups to the Staff . I’d do this tour all year
Best way to experience Cape Town.

Sonto_M, Apr 2022
The service is more than excellent. Bus drivers were excellent. Offices were helpful. Earphone connection was perfect. This is the very best.
Mark_v, Apr 2022
The actual tour was fantastic however the Viator booking and the lowest price promise they make is just words. The tour was available to the general public at cheaper prices if I had booked with City Sightseeing and also they offer special prices for pensioners which makes it significantly cheaper to book directly and not via Viator. After approaching Viator with these facts and mailing screenshots and links to City Sightseeing they still did not refund.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
We do offer a pensioner ticket for South African pensioners with valid photo ID only. This cannot be bought anywhere but in store on presentation of said ID. Glad you enjoyed the tour all the same which I can assure you, you paid the same for, as all other passengers. R 245 for a 1 Classic ticket. Viator or directly with us.
