Additional Information

Boarding our red Double-Decker City Sightseeing tour buses is the best way to get around this beautiful city. Cape Town is home to so many well-known landmarks so why not visit them in style and take in the incredible views of the landscapes on the journey too. Our open top buses mean you can make the most of your trip and enjoy the views of the South Atlantic Ocean.

The 4 different bus routes cover the whole city, and the various lengths of trips give you plenty of flexibility to hop on and off throughout the day. Hop-off the red line at Bus Stop 2 to visit the Clock Tower, a bizarre but eye-catching yellow and black building, and then hop on again ready to roam Long Street at Bus Stop 5, a famous bohemian-style street that gives you a real insight into the South African culture.

Why not grab a bite to eat? There's an endless selection of different cuisines, perhaps try some new typical South African dishes and really immerse yourself into their culture. For all those animal lovers out there, switch to the Blue Line and hop-off at Bus Stop 7 to visit the World of Birds & Monkey Jungle, the visit will be worthwhile!

Opt for the 48 hour ticket so you can join us on our boat trip, a great chance to enjoy something different whilst on your travels, looking at Cape Town from a different perspective. Discover the different aspects which make it one of the most multicultural cities in the world!
