Travelling by bus


One of the best ways to see Cape Town’s landmarks, especially if you have limited time, is to make use of the City Sightseeing Bus, which has three routes to choose from – a city tour, mini-peninsula tour and a wine tour.

These tours are set up so that you can get off at various points and choose how much time you want to spend there before catching the next bus. While in transit, you can listen to recorded commentary in six different languages, providing interesting information about the landmarks along the way.
