Apart from checking into our hotel, this was the first thing we did when we arrived and it did not disappoint! An absolutely marvellous way to see all the main sites that the beautiful city has to offer, from Table Mountain to the wine region. I would not hesitate to recommend this as a ‘must do’. We have used this company throughout the world and have always found their staff helpful, very interesting and informative.

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

Everything was excellent… Very patient drivers. The narrator … wow. I was so impressed
