Tourism wheels start rolling

The City Sightseeing Red Bus, an icon in the tourism landscape, is revving up the fleet and is ready to hit the city streets this Woman’s Day weekend.

After nationwide lock down that started at the end of March, like all tourism operators, City Sightseeing has been closed for business as the country waited for the COVID 19 pandemic to hit its peak and starts showing a decline in infections. With the latest easing of Level 3 restrictions, City Sightseeing has been given the go ahead to start up the service as of the 8th August 2020.

Safety is a major priority when travelling on any City Sightseeing tour and stringent measures have been put in place to keep guests safe. These include the mandatory use of masks by staff and passengers, temperature checks at entrance to all buses, boats and ticket offices, buses are cleaned frequently throughout the day and deep cleaned every night, hand sanitiser available at all touch points, regular sanitizing of ticket office and limited bus capacity on the bus with strict social distancing protocols.

Starting off with weekends and public holidays, the Red Bus will be on the streets of Cape Town again, unlocking the secrets of the city and again showing off her beauty to Capetonians who have been confined to their homes for over 4 months.

Always known as an affordable family excursion, City Sightseeing have made it even easier to hop on a tour with the whole family and are offering a post COVID ticket price to celebrate Woman’s Day and the freedom of travel. (

“This pandemic has been devastating on so many fronts. Our hearts go out to all those affected. The time has come to welcome back our fellow Capetonians, ensuring we do so safely for both passengers and our staff. Please come and Hop-On a bus with us and fall in love with Cape Town all over again!” said Claus Tworeck, Chairman City Sightseeing South Africa.
