City Sightseeing Cape Town offers the most diverse and safe exploring options for visitors.

With an innovative series of collaborations, in depth local knowledge and a group of locals who love showing our city and surroundings, you are guaranteed fulfilling days that include all of Cape Town’s attractions and points of interest under one (mobile) roof.

The hop-on hop-off city and mini peninsula tours are back in full swing.


An all-inclusive package for 2 days includes a free walking tour of the historic city or the stunning Bo-Kaap neighbourhood. Also in the package is the Canal Cruise – between the Cape Town International Convention Centre and the V&A Waterfront, cruising through the canals of the harbour, between residential fronts and industrial clusters, you are likely to view families of seals that share the human space.


The mini peninsula tour branches into the Constantia Wine Valley with stops at 3 of the wine estates. The historic Groot Constantia, the boutique Eagle’s Nest and the modern Beau Constantia. Besides the fact that this is the best solution to drink and not drive, this mini tour can be made into a day of its own and with big grounds and enough space, it is suitable for families with kids.


Another feature on the package is the sunset bus. Leaving the V&A Waterfront station every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday till the end of April, the bus will take you for a ride facing the setting sun all the way to Signal Hill. On the top, between Table Mountain and the ocean panorama, you will, most definitely enjoy one of the most breathtaking sunsets of your life. Bring your own picnic to indulge in this romantic location. Your bus will wait for the sun to set before making its way back through the city.


The full peninsula tour to Cape Point & Simon’s Town Penguin Colony makes its way on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The tour is led by passionate local, English speaking guide which will also join you to the hike from Cape Point to Cape of Good Hope.


Franschhoek & Stellenbosch Wine Tour is back every Friday. The full day includes Backsberg Wine Estate chocolate & wine pairing, urban wine tasting during lunch, Simonsig Wine Estate cheese & wine tasting and a guided walk through the town of Stellenbosch.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram Explorer Tour is a return transfer to the Wine Tram, a Cape Winelands experience not to be missed. The City Sightseeing bus leaves Cape Town every Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday. From dropping point, just like any other traveller, it is up to you to pick your Wine Tram route, to decide which wine estates to visit and for how long.

Walk-ins are welcome for wine tastings and pairings at any time. Lunch booking is advised since restaurants don’t seat their full capacity yet. Please pay attention to the hop-on on time for the departure of the bus back to Cape Town.

You might even plan an overnight stay in Franschhoek. In this case, there are many wine estate accommodation options and magnificent boutique hotels all over town. The Wine Tram’s main terminal is also an exit point for a lovely tour of the town that will share history, art galleries and some chocolate tasting to balance the alcohol.


Back to City Sightseeing – with the booking, pay attention to all the wonderful combo deals they currently offer. With free Wi-Fi and electricity anchoring points on board, it is the best option for the social traveller.
