Don't bother with a taxi. This bus is excellent. Really well priced and superb commentary. We did the blue route and stopped off at the township which was a humbling experience. Very safe and well worth the tours make sure you tip. We did 300rand.

These busses may look touristy, but if you use them as transportation to where you want to go they are well worth it. We did the blue route that goes via the wine country and coast and loved the scenery.

The experience was great we got on at long Street and headed around. We stopped off at lots of spots like Constantia neck. Being a local it was different viewing Cape Town this way. I would recommend it for international as well as the locals.
