Cape Town’s Unique Night Tour

Our popular and unique Night Tour is the only one of its kind in South Africa and an experience not to be missed!

There is nothing quite like Cape Town on a warm summers evening. With the smell of the ocean on the breeze and Table Mountain lit up as a spectacular back drop - the Night Tour allows you to experience a whole new side of the city.

Departs daily from Bus Stop 1, outside Two Oceans Aquarium:

  • The Night Bus does not operate on 8 March
  • Departure times from Stop 1: 18h00 (1 Nov to 7 March), 17h30 (9 March - 3 May)
  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the departure time at Stop 1
  • Use the 17h00 Green Route from Stop 5 in Long Street to connect to the Night Tour bus at Stop 1

The Night Tour is not a Hop-On, Hop-Off tour like the other City Sightseeing tours but, as part of the tour’s highlights, it does stop at Signal Hill - so remember to bring along a picnic or order a delicious snack pack or picnic hamper from us which will be delivered to Signal Hill for you to enjoy while watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.

New: Order your picnic from us and we will deliver on Signal Hill

Snack packs are for one person and cost R70
Deluxe picnic hamper serves two people and costs R220
Vegetarian options are available

NOTE: Orders for the snack pack or picnic hamper need to be placed by 4pm, either with a City Sightseeing driver or at one of the Tour Offices at Stop 1 and Stop 5.

The Night Tour bus also makes its way past all the best night attractions, and returns to the V&A Waterfront – a round trip of approximately three hours. Passengers are advised to bring along a warm jacket just in case and whilst on the tour remember to keep your eyes out to sea as well because if you are lucky you may even spot a few whales who are visiting the Cape of Good Hope for the summer.

This unique experience is one-of-a-kind and offers a fun, romantic and memorable (depending on who you are experiencing it with) outing that will not be quickly forgotten. Take time to marvel at the twinkling lights of Cape Town, and if you are lucky the lights of Table Mountain might even be switched on and provide a highlighted view of the Mother City's majestic mountain.

Signal Hill is located at the bottom of Lion's Head and is commonly known as the rump of the Lion. It provides 360 degree views of the city, made even more spectacular when viewed at sunset. It is also famous for the Noon Day Gun which is the loud bang that can be heard throughout the city to signal 12pm.

In case of bad weather the Night Tour will visit the lower Table Mountain Cableway Station, as this is more sheltered than Signal Hill but still provides breath-taking views of the City Centre, the V&A Waterfront, Table Bay and further out towards the Southern Suburbs.

The bus returns to the City Sightseeing kiosk at the V&A Waterfront, where you can travel home or continue your night at one of the various restaurants, bars or even clubs located in and around the Waterfront.
