    Harbor cruise & RED bus are a MUST DO!
    Tracy_M, May 2023
    Harbor cruise is great for seal watching! Red bus route is a MUST. Blue bus can be skipped. It's quite long and has many 'sit & wait' stops that make the trip longer than desired unless you have a couple of hours to waste.
    Hop on bus
    brenda_f, May 2023
    Great commentary, friendly and helpful drivers, great music, busses clean and headphones work well, great way to get overview of capetown
    Easy way to get around
    Patty_S, May 2023
    The bus was clean and convenient, but I wish the two-day pass had been more flexible.... any two days instead of needing to be consecutive.
    Get to know the city easy
    Sheila_B, May 2023
    Only had time for the red route, but we hopped off at Camps Bay to explore the area. Easy to use. Used our pass to take the canal tour - highly recommend! It was a hidden gem.

    Ian_S, Apr 2023
    Booking online was easy and convenient, took a two day tour was worth every cent. Took the city tour the first day and the mini peninsula the second day. The bus drivers were very, very friendly and helpful. Just two Awesome days spent on tour.
    The best
    Venetta_L, Apr 2023
    The commentary was excellent, buses clean, drivers polite and helpful. One of the best hop on hop off buses we have encountered over the many years and countries we have travelled.
    Ease in to it
    Tracy_V, Apr 2023
    We did this on the first day we arrived here. After 21 hours of flying, it was a nice way to ease in. Got an insightful overview of the city and hopped on/off at our own pace. Truly we got off only twice. At the Township and di the tour of the Township and at Camps Bay to dip our toes in the frigid water and have lunch. We then looped back to the V&A Waterfront and worked off the rest of our jet lag browsing the stores and enjoying some awesome coffee and sights.
    Simply amazing and wonderful!
    Diana_W, Apr 2023
