City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off tours are an extremely entertaining and educational way of experiencing Cape Town in a short space of time.
You get a choice of two routes (Red and Blue routes) and can get on and off as many times as you want to.
As the buses run on a regular schedule, you can plan your stops so as to see as many sights as possible. Tickets are available for the whole day.
On the trip you also have a choice of 16 languages from the multi-language commentary system. Even as a born and bred Capetonian, I was impressed with both the content and the manner of the commentary.
