Advice for visitors

You only need one ticket to access a full day of sightseeing on all of City Sightseeing’s red bus tours. Each ticket gives you the freedom to get off at any stop you like and explore the attraction for as long as you want. When you kick-off the tour, make sure to collect your complimentary pair of earphones so you can enjoy the bus’s tour guide. The Cape town red tour bus is available in multiple languages. If you go on a sunny day, you will definitely want to sit on the open top deck of the bus, so make sure you wear sunscreen and bring a hat and sunglasses. Once you have completed the tour, ask your guide about the best places to go after dark – they’re sure to recommend some great hidden gems in and around the city.
