Hop On Hop Off, skip and jump through Cape Town
We want our guests to have the best time during their stay and Hop On Hop Off is possibly the most effortless way to explore the sights and sounds of Cape Town. Forget the nightmare of an itinerary and the logistics of having to navigate the streets of the Mother City, a ticket on this sight-seeing bus gives you access to tour options that will take you directly to Cape Town's top attractions. Think: Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch, Cape of Good Hope, Constantia Valley, Waterfront, fascinating museums, memorable landmarks and more! Could you fit more into one bus? Probably not.
Drive and drink
One of the most popular tours with Hop On Hop Off is the Cape Town Purple Wine Tour through Constantia Valley. You'll discover rich South African heritage at three different wine estates - Groot Constantia, Eagle's Nest and Beau Constantia - while sipping the day away sampling their world class wines. Walk through some of the country's oldest vineyards, visit a historic manor house and indulge in food and wine tastings. This is the only time it's ok to drive and drink - someone else is driving on your two-day tour so you can do the drinking!
Coast the peninsula
Crawl along the coastline of the cape through Constantia winelands, Kirstenbosch garens, Hout Bay and the adventurous Atlantic Seaboard. This mini tour is by no means a small attraction. To name a few of the highlights? Get in touch with mother nature in the flower-scattered gardens of Kirstenbosch. Cape Town is known for its famous fynbos but there is so much more to the flora and fauna if you just take the time. Stop in at World of Birds and the Monkey Jungle and experience of a part of Africa up close. With more than 3 000 species of birds and animals and refresh your bank of general knowledge.
One or two days
Travelling in and around the Mother City can be a breeze (and we're not just talking about the occasional gale-force wind). Hop On Hop Off is painless - you sit back and relax while taking in the sunshine on your way to the next best thing. With so much to see and do, the question begs, do you purchase a ticket for one or two days? If you're here for the first time, it's a no brainer - two days! However, if you've seen the city before perhaps one day will do. The bus takes four different routes and you can hop on and hop off at any point. While you're on board you'll meet new people and get a commentary on the gorgeous surroundings by an expert guide.
At just R550 per adult, this Hop On Hop Off tour really is a steal. A short 650m walk from your stay at Long Street Hotel, you'll find the Long Street Tour Office at 81 Long Street. This spot marks the start of a free walking tour and it's also one of the stops on the Yellow Downtown Tour. Better yet, after long and exhilarating days you'll come back and have a refreshing sleep in our luxurious setting. Now, that's the high life.
