This bus line is great. Their staff was always friendly and supportive. Their schedule runs all the time and without delays. We used the Buslinie even three times and were always impressed . Joining their tours you get a good overview of Cape Town and can hoop off and on - as you prefer !

We use the (two day) bus tour almost on every trip to CT because it is a fine, relaxed way to travel around, drink some wine and have a good time - very reasonably priced for all the opportunities offered... The walking tours (very nice staff) are very informative!

We just did the blue peninsula tour with friends to enjoy a leisurely Sunday out in the Winelands and in Hout Bay area. The bus tour is so convenient, well organised, reliable, the staff is friendly and helpful and there are enough buses, we always got our favourite seats. :-) This is simply a great way to explore parts of...

This is an ideal and inexpensive way to get around Cape Town and beyond. You can get off any time to see a particular attraction, then later get back on the bus to continue the tour. We picked up our Red tour bus (Red Route) at Camps Bay, to go to the Waterfront. After spending some time there for a... More

We (2 couples from Hout Bay)have just come back from a blue tour on your buses, what a great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful, the buses clean, the comments both in English and German were informative. We started at Mariner’s Wharf and stopped over at Constantia Neck for lunch, there was not really time for anything else so... More

I took the Red Bus from the Waterfront up to Long Street, explored Greenmarket Square then on the bus again (blue route) to do the mini peninsular tour. Don't forget the headphones, you will need them for lots of interesting local info. There are really loads of great places to see on these tours. I hadn't expected there to be... More
