This was a half day tour of Lagugu Township. We were taken to the township, given a private and educational tour, including private homes. We also visited the Dumb Pass Museum, the Old Beer Hall (where we tried the traditional beer) and Mazoli's (a place you MUST visit while in Cape Town area). Incredible tour!

City Sightseeing Cape Town proved the perfect way to get to know this city, and some of what it has to offer. Between stops, the informative commentary provided a way to gain an even deeper understanding of this glorious city.

We really enjoyed the Hop on Hop off bus. It us clean and well organized. You see a lot and it is really beautiful. We stop at the Castle and did a tour inside. Then we stop at Table Mountain Cable Car and did the ride. Really worth it. We did another stop and have a drink. The bus stop... More

I've purchased the city sightseeing tours of Paris, Milan, Rome, New York, LA, etc. and this tour was one of the best when it came to bus frequency. You have 3 lines and all of them have a bus every 15 minutes which was awesome. It's an excellent way of seeing the Town but -contrary as I felt with other... More

Clean buses, clear audio presentation with good music, frequent service so little waiting. Truly awesome way to see this beautiful city. We had a 2 day pass which also entitled us to the sunset tour to Signal Point. Great party atmosphere here but a bit hairy when we came down in the dark and the bus came face to face... More

The red bus, hop on, hop off, bus tours, are a great way to get around Cape Town, and see the sights. They have 2 or 3 bus routes, that follow a loop, just choose the one you want, and that's it really, choose to get of, and explore any place of interest, or just stay on, and enjoy the... More

Since we don't have enough time to visit the places in Cape Town one by one, we used the sightseeing bus. A ticket on the City Sightseeing bus gives you access to all the main tours and takes you directly to Cape Town's top attractions – including the Table Mountain Cableway, V&A Waterfront, camps bay etc
