The Hop on Hop Off Tour in Cape Town was excellent, we only wish we had more time to see more things, but we decided to head straight to the Table Mountain stop and after the weather had cleared and we made it to the top, it left the rest of the day some what short for us to stop at the Wineries. All in all, we felt safe and the commentary was excellent and informative. We took our voucher to the ticket booth and once again Viator was on the money, everthing went like clockwork

We enjoyed the day so much. We took the blue linewhich took us to the township. The hour long tour is something we will never forget. If you are ever in Capetown make sure you add this bus to the itinerary
