The starting point is by the 'temporary tourist Centre T the beach and is 100 rand per adult, half price for children. Before you dash off for it, it is important to recognise that it is NOT a hop on hop off tour. Unless you...More

This tour gives you a good overview of Durban. I think you get to see most of the major sites. The tour had a stop in the middle of the tour, which I thought was a waste of time. Ride on the upper deck, better...More

Don't expect Red/Blue Bus Tour in Durban! This was a useful tour of a city I don't know well, and recommended as the first thing you do if you have a few days in Durban. It gave us ideas on what to book for during...More

It's a very good experience if you go to Durban. The service is more simpler than the usual Red Bus Sightseeing, common all over the world, including Cape Town and Johannesburg in SA (so the price is more cheaper). It's a 3 hour guided tour,...More
