Cape Town Red Bus Birthday party trip
Aug. 2021
My daughter took a few friends on the trip for her 16th birthday party. They had an absolute ball. They loved the bus driver who took them to Kirstenbosch and then on the return trip too. They said he was so helpful and friendly. I can highly recommend this tour. A nice COVID friendly way to see our beautiful Cape.

The seamless ride, being informed all the time along the way. The busses run like clockwork and the staff are so friendly and helpful. It is so wonderful seeing our own city from up top and having no stress doing the drive. We never had to wait long for a bus. This was my second time on the bus. I hope to experience a different route soon.

Enjoyable Tour
Apr. 2021 • Family
We had such an enjoyable time as a family. We hadn’t kids ages 6,4,2 and they absolutely enjoyed everything. We enjoyed a picnic at Constantia Nek, walked and toured around there! Our top is that one must start the tour early morning and ensure that you Bring your picnic basket for the morning lunch and have your early dinner later in one of the restaurants.

You simply have to do this hop on hop off! The audio tour is so informative and interesting that even the noisy uninterested tourists can easily be ignored.
