Cape Town Touristic Bus

General Information About Cape Town Touristic Bus

Discover all the greatest sites in South Africa’s most beautiful city, Cape Town, on this comprehensive bus tour. The Red and Blue Route city tours take you to all the most famous landmarks in the area, a great way to become acquainted with the city.

Throughout the duration of the tours, enjoy a knowledgeable commentary about the city’s history and culture in a wide array of languages. Also feel free to hop off the bus at your leisure to explore a site at your own rhythm; you will be able to join another bus by waiting at the bus stop.

With the Red Route, depart from the charming traditional streets of the Waterfront, ever thriving with commerce and tourism, and let yourself be driven through the windy streets towards the city centre. After that, the bus drives to the lower cableway, 350 meters above sea level, from where one can ascend to the top of the majestic Table Mountain. Later on, the bus drops into Camps Bay and Clifton, two stunning beaches, before driving alongside the coast back towards the Waterfront.

The Blue Route, on the other hand, does the city centre in depth. Drive around Devil’s Peak Mountain on your way towards the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Cross the Cecilia forest into Hout Bay, an area filled with attractions. After that, surround the 12 Apostles Mountain range and complete the route by driving by the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton on your way back to the Waterfront.
