          Does the open top Red Bus run through Hermanus.

          Response from brownjug | Property representative |
          As far as I am aware the open top red bus operates in the Cape Town area doing tours of the City and surrounds. Hermanus is well worth a visit on its own merits and very easy to navigate. Day tours are readily available
