  • We had to spend a few hours so we boarded the red line sitting on top for 1.5 hours. It’s nice to do and to hear about what you see. Having more time it’s worth to really hop on an off.  more »
  • We purchased this package and the company refused to honor the tickets purchased through Trip Advisor/Viator and then tried to refuse to refund. Don’t use.  more »
  • Good and informative ways to get around the city. Recommend this for anyone visiting the city and want to explore

  • Can't recommend these buses enough. We did the blue and red tours and also did the Cape Point and penguins. Keith was so informative and all the staff made the trips even better. Don't come to Cape Town without trying them. Excellent value 😁
  • Great value for money and it the bus has different routes. You can cover all the attractions of Cape Town and there is the possibility to extend to a 2 day ticket if you have not been able to cover everything in one day. It also offers a day tour to the boulders beach, Cape of good hope and cape point. The tour guide is very friendly and speaks good English. I definitely recommend.
  • The Big Red Bus is a excellent way to get a good overview of a city. The open top double deck buses cover many interesting points in and about Cape Town. The buses play a recorded audio headphone narration describing the respective points of interest. You can listen in as many as 16 different languages. You should not,however, consider the buses as transportation. This was our mistake. They start late and quit too early. We took two of their special tours, one of which was to the Cape Point, the South Western most point on the African continent. This day long tour has a live guide to point out the various points of interest. We also took the winery tour. This took us to the communities of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, along with two wineries and their tastings.
  • The crew is very friendly and receptive. This is a good option if you want to explore every single point of the city. The prices are fare, at least I thought. Really recommend!
  • Good value for the money, although the routes are somewhat limited as compared with many other cities that run these busses. The biggest limitation is that the routes are one way circular and quite long. However, the busses are clean, staff friendly and knowledgeable. Information is good, and well placed stops. Definitely go on the sunset tour up Signal Hill. Good value for your money.
