The open-top double-decker buses of City Sightseeing are one of the best ways to take in the highlights of Cape Town. With the sun on your shoulders, and an elevated view of your surroundings, you’ll see why the CitySightseeing Bus is the popular official tour of Cape Town.
There are two routes covering more than 20 of Cape Town’s iconic attractions and destinations, including Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, the V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay, Sea Point and the Constantia Wine Route.
The buses depart from outside the Two Oceans Aquarium every 15 minutes, seven days a week, starting from 09h00, and you can use your ticket to jump off at any of the stops near the attraction you wish to visit, and get back on the next bus after you are done.
The single-route R140 ticket is valid for one of the two tours on the day of issue, whereas the R250 two-route ticket is valid for two consecutive days so you can continue the tour the next day if you’ve been sidetracked at a particular destination. The two-day ticket also gives you FREE access to the Night Tour (operates between September and April) and FREE access to the City Sightseeing Canal Cruise that operates between the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town International Convention Centre (bus stops 1 and 3).
Buses are equipped for wheelchairs and the tour commentary is available in 16 languages including English, German, Dutch, French, Russian, Spanish, Mandarin, Italian, Arabic, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Zulu, Turkish, Japanese and a special Kids Club commentary for the junior passengers.
