The City Sightseeing open-top bus is undoubtedly the best way to go sightseeing in Johannesburg or Cape Town

Our red, hop on hop off buses run in Cape Town and Johannesburg seven days a week, 365 days a year, come rain or shine, and arrive at each stop at regular scheduled intervals (with very few exceptions). Guests are encouraged to hop off the bus throughout the tour and explore the surrounding areas.

Our open-top tours are a delight for anyone wanting a safe, fun and informative introduction to the city, whether you're a lone traveller to South Africa, a local couple, a mom with two kids or a grandad on a weekend outing with the grandkids.

Guided day tours and packages

We also offer an array of day tours and packages, from full-day guided tours to Cape Point and the Cape Winelands, to harbour cruises and multicultural township experiences.
