Last Chance to Enjoy the 3 For 1 Special from City Sightseeing

Winter has drawn to a close with the onset of Spring, and with it comes the last chance for families to make use of our popular 3 for 1 Special. When you buy one adult bus ticket, you get two junior bus tickets for free, meaning you can take the whole family along for a sightseeing adventure that doesn’t break the bank. The special ends at the end of the school holidays, so take this opportunity to enjoy the start of Spring and explore Cape Town with your family onboard our iconic, open-top Red Buses. The special is valid on public holidays, weekends, and school holidays- perfect for the upcoming September school holidays.

About the tours

The Red Bus takes passengers on a tour of the city, giving passengers a chance to visit the top attractions in Cape Town and Johannesburg, from Table Mountain to Kirstenbosch Gardens, Constitution Hill to Gold Reef. Hop on and hop off the bus at your favourite attractions, and keep our map and timetable on hand to help you find your chosen stops.

Also, be sure to wear plenty of sunblock to protect against the Spring-time sun, and dress in comfortable layers to add to and remove if necessary, as the weather can sometimes turn on a dime, especially in Cape Town.

Here are some attractions in Cape Town and Johannesburg we’re sure the kids will love.
