Explore Cape Town on an open-topped bus
Looking for an easy way to see the city and surrounds? Then hop aboard Cape Town’s famous red city sightseeing buses and take a leisurely tour or two.
The open-topped luxury buses provide a grand view of the city and peninsula’s most well-known routes and attractions. One ticket gives you access to all the main tours, and you can get on and get off the tours at any time. All the tours include informative audio commentary in 15 different languages.
These are some of the most popular tours (check the website for changes):
- Red City Tour: 11 stops around the city, including Table Mountain Cableway
- Blue Mini Peninsula Tour: 14 scenic stops around the peninsula, including Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens
- Purple Wine Tour: Stops at Constantia Valley’s finest wine estates
- Yellow Downtown Tour: 7 stops around the city’s historic landmarks and museums
Other tours like township tours, sunset drives and harbour cruises are also available.
Something we at the Bay Atlantic Guest House really appreciate is that there’s a red-bus stop just down the road in Camps Bay. You can literally walk from the guest house, hop on a bus, and spend the whole day touring the city and surrounds.
How to get on board
You can buy tickets from the bus drivers or you can get them online. Tickets are valid for one or two days, depending on the ticket purchased.
