Since 2002 we’ve been hosting local and international visitors on a journey to explore Cape Town’s heritage and many sights, providing an easy mode of transport around our city and offering a casual day out with the family. The Open Top Red Tour Bus or the Hop on and Hop Off, as we’re often referred to, is by far the easiest and most convenient way to discover the thriving metropolis of Cape Town.
City Sightseeing South Africa beat over 86 international travel destinations to win top honours at the City Sightseeing Annual International Awards Ceremony. Providing the best customer experience, using state of the art technology and showcasing the Mother city is what ensured our top position and Cape Town is really proud of us!

City Sightseeing operates 7 days a week 365 days a year come rain or shine and a bus arrives at each stop at regular scheduled intervals, encouraging you to get off the bus and explore the surrounding area.
