Take a day or two to explore all that Cape Town has to offer. Pick from 4 bus routes to tour, with a number of iconic attractions along each route. Let your team pick which STOPs they want to get off at, which makes for a customised, personalised tour for you and your team.
Soak up the sun from the open deck of the bus as you visit all your favourite Cape Town hotspots. Visit Cape Town’s most iconic landmark by hopping off the bus to take the cable car up Table Mountain on the Red City Tour Route, where it’s easy to fall in love with your home town all over again as you take in the awe-inspiring views.
Or you can get in touch with nature with a stop at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on the Blue Mini Peninsula Tour Route, the perfect place to stroll through the trees. If you are a wine connoisseurs, you can switch over to the Purple Wine Tour Route at Constantia Nek to go wine farm hopping from Groot Constantia Wine Estate, Eagles Nest and Beau Constantia, tasting all the exquisite wines on offer as you visit their vines and cellars.
If you work with some avid Cape Town historians, the Yellow Downtown Route is the perfect one for you and your team, with a number of historical attractions like the Castle of Good Hope and the South African Museum.

Head South with the Cape Point and Penguin Explorer Tour
Hop on the Cape Point Explorer bus to take an adventure through the Southern Peninsula, with a scenic drive down to False Bay. The views are stunning as you go through Muizenberg, Fish Hoek, and all the way down to Simon’s Town to visit the penguins at their home in Boulders Beach.
You will have an hour or so to get acquainted with these feathered friends before making your way to the main attraction, Cape Point. Two hours is plenty of time to take in the views, ride the Flying Dutchman Vernacular, and take a hike down to Dias Beach. You can even enjoy a spot of lunch at the on-site restaurant.
The peninsula tour draws to a close with another scenic round trip through Scarborough and over Ou Kaapse Weg.
