    • Rating: 5 “Great trip”

      Reviewed by Timo from Wuerzburg, Germany on January 3rd, 2014 Great Trip

    • Rating: 5 “Very safe, efficient and cheap way to see a lot of Cape Town”

      Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Harrogate, United Kingdom on November 17th, 2013 The buses are placed at strategic points in order to make the most of each place of interest and run frequently enough. We certainly made the most of the two day ticket and felt we had had good value for money. It is also a safer way to travel around the city and outlying areas as there were always guides and other tourists about.

    • Rating: 5 “Great way to see city”

      Reviewed by Paul from Catonsville, United States on July 27th, 2013 Friendly staff and covers most places of interest. Keeps the schedule to the minute. We used two full days.

    • Rating: 5 “Super Tour, lots to see and do.”

      Reviewed by Margaret from Leobendorf, Austria on November 8th, 2012 Wonderful, staff are friendly, bus is very comfortable and commentary is very informative.

    • Rating: 5 “Great way to see Cape Town; don't miss the sunset bus!!”

      Reviewed by Andrew from Sandbach, United Kingdom on November 23rd, 2011 Excellent value for money, stopping at some of the key Cape Town attractions (cablecar and Kirstenbosch are not to be missed). And the night bus to watch the sunset is a great addition to the 2 day ticket. Just one complaint - we did get up specially to catch the 1st bus at 08.25 to go direct to the Table Mountain cablecar but the bus didn't turn up. We later found out this was due to the cablecar not running because of maintenance, but we were left hanging around for 30 minutes waiting for an explanation. Apart from that, a terrific experience.

    • Rating: 5

      Reviewed by Günter from Köln, Germany on March 9th, 2011 Highly recommended. Especially the night tour.

    • Rating: 4

      Reviewed by Corinna from Berlin, Germany on February 6th, 2011 The tours offered via bus are helpful for people without a vehicle. The only downfall is the lack of buses in the evening. Especially, when you want to get home from the city to the hotel, the buses don't run anymore. So, the only opention to get through the unsave parts between downtown and the beach area is a taxi.
