Overall rating

based on 1,704 reviews

Absolutely amazing experience, 100% recommended. Lovely wine tasting by the very knowledgeable owner, farmer and wine maker Greg and then a fabulous performance by Drum Struck who took us through the history of African music. A very lovely afternoon.

We booked the two day tickets with free sunset bus and cannal cruise. It’s very worthy. First day we took the red line for Table mountain, also the sunset tour. Then blue line to connect the wine tour on the second day. Everything is perfect.

Amazing way to see the city, great value of money and takes you to all the top spots. I got the 2 days pass as I wanted to do many things, also did the sunset tour (separate ticket) and it was one memorable experience as well.

The bus experience was so amazing. It's making it easy for people who are not from around Cape town to get the true experience

Very enjoyable. Guide was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Would recommend to anyone :)
