City Sightseeing in Cape Town

Having used a tour bus when we visited London in 2015 we were really excited to see that Citysightseeing Tours are also operating in Cape Town.

This tour bus is an amazing way to see Cape Town and it’s surrounds with the purchase of a ticket you can visit over 30 top tourist attractions.

On our recent visit to the Mother city we purchased the best seller premium ticket for the discounted price of R280 per person online and tickets are valid for 14 days from the day selected, it is a two day bus pass which includes the following tours:

  • City Tour to Table Mountain

  • Downtown Tour

  • Mini Peninsula Tour which stops at Kirstenbosch and Camps Bay

  • Wine Tour to Constantia Wine Region


Please note: the ticket prices do not include entrance fees to the sights and these should be budgeted for separately.

With the purchase of the ticket it also includes a harbour cruise or a canal cruise around V and A Waterfront and a sunset bus where you can experience the famous Atlantic Ocean sunsets from the iconic Signal Hill.


Citysightseeing Tours also offers free live guided walking tours so we opted for the vibrant Bo Kaap tour of the inner city (Cape Town CBD) and Bo Kaap which begins at the Citysightseeing office in Longstreet all the way into the Bo Kaap residential area.

Tours operate daily from 10h00, 13h00 and 16h00, these tours are free but it is advised to tip your tour guides as they are not compensated for these tours.


The tour buses come equipt with commentary available in 16 languages which has numerous fun facts to educate you about Cape Town and the history.

Citysightseeing also offers the following full day tours:

  • Wine Tour and Tasting to Franshoek and Stellenbosch

  • Cape Point and Boulders Beach

Citysightseeing tours are professional, very reliable, the buses depart at least every 15 -20 minutes and all stops are marked clearly all over the bus routes.


Citysightseeing tours are a great way to see Cape Town and we are looking forward to making use of them right here in Gauteng for the Johannesburg & Soweto tours.
