TripAdvisor ranks Cape Town's red bus the fourth best experience in Africa

01 August 2018

TripAdvisor has just ranked City Sightseeing's one- and two-day open-top bus tours in Cape Town as the fourth best experience in Africa.

This is based on positive five-star reviews by locals and tourists who have hopped on the bus. We are one of only two experiences in Cape Town and four in South Africa that made the list of top 10 experiences on the continent.

"We're thrilled to have made it onto this impressive list of top tourist experiences. It's great to know that we're continuously achieving our goal of showing Cape Town to locals and tourists in a unique, informative, affordable and fun way," says City Sightseeing South Africa marketing and sales manager Mandi Jarman.

Here's what our guests had to say:

"I'm a local, living on the Atlantic Seaboard. My kids decided to convince me to go on this ride, what a fantastic experience it was. I have driven this route hundreds of times, but this bus ride gives a person a completely different view. Well worth it." – Michael M

"We loved the Hop-on and Hop-off Sightseeing bus tour. The value for the price is excellent, as we went on both the red and blue tours. The opportunity to see Cape Town from this perspective with the narration was great! We were fortunate to meet other tourists from other countries while on the tour. A great deal!" – ProfessorOT, Hamilton, Canada

"Had a great experience from start to finish, everything was on time, staff where very nice & helpful, great value for money, some fascinating views along the blue route." – Gomez191086, Liverpool, United Kingdom

"This is a fantastic way to see Cape Town. We took both the Red and Blue lines, so we saw both sides of Table Mountain and all the attractions. We enjoyed one of the free walking tours of Historic Cape Town." – Craig M, Vancouver, Canada

Hop-on Hop-Off

Hop on the open top red bus and enjoy the sights of Cape Town – from Table Mountain to the V&A Waterfront, from Camps Bay to Kirstenbosch. The Classic package gives you one full day on the bus covering all hop-on, hop-off tours.
