The simple truth about getting on the City Sightseeing Red Bus Tour in Cape Town is that it is a must. I loved it! It was a cheap way to get around Cape Town and I get to see a lot of interesting places without having to look for parking…
Cape Town seems to have a shortage of parking spaces. I even saw a car being pushed out of the way into a wall with a car. I don’t know if it’s normal, but if I rented a car I would get the smallest car possible and take super waiver damage insurance – just saying.
There I was, sitting at the top of the City Sightseeing Red Bus Tour under a canopy/roof looking at all these beaches filled with people… on the beach and not in the beautiful blue freezing water. (Clearly this is not KZN)
I even got off my perfect vantage point to walk and snap photos.
I only booked a 1 day ticket – and it even included stops at 3 wine tastings… The route stretched from the V&A via the Bo-Kaap (depending on the colour line you took)past Kirstenbosch, wineries and even up Table Mountain and down along the coast. It was a really well-planned route!
If I was to ever go back to Cape Town – and I only get there every decade or so – I would totally book my spot on some of the more expensive excursions they have… which are more wine tasting orientated.
If you want to see more of the wonderful things you can expect when you hop on, visit www.citysightseeing.co.za/en/cape-town or if you are in my hood (that’s Jozi) www.citysightseeing.co.za/en/joburg.
PS. They didn’t pay me to say nice things. I paid for my ticket as if I’m a real person.
I love city tours, best way to make the most of your short visit to a city

The red bus city tour looks like a great way to get around Cape Town! I especially love that there are wine tasting stops!
Great intro tour to the city and wine farms 🙂

South Africa as a whole should be on your bucketlist… the north of the country is worlds away from the Cape vibe
Great tip, I usually don’t take the tour busses but now that you mentions it’s pros it is a thing I will keep in mind when in Cape town.
*happy dance* Converted one person to take the bus trip route 🙂
