It's time to see the best sunsets in Cape Town with the Sunset Bus!

13 September 2018

After a long winter, it's time to hop on City Sightseeing’s Sunset Bus again, the best way to enjoy Cape Town’s glorious sunsets.

The City Sightseeing red bus is the best way for tourists and locals to experience all the major attractions in Cape Town. What makes the Sunset Bus special is that it isn’t the usual hop-on, hop-off tour, but rather a three-hour loop that takes passengers on a tour of the city’s finest viewpoints, best enjoyed in the final hours of daylight.

After taking its annual break over winter, the sun is finally setting later which means beautiful views and sunsets can be enjoyed again with the Sunset Bus from 22 September 2018.

As the sun dips into the Atlantic, the bus will stop at the top of Signal Hill, its final destination, where passengers are encouraged to bring along picnics and enjoy the amazing views of the city, Lion’s Head and the Atlantic Ocean.

The Sunset Bus runs every evening from stop 1 at the V&A Waterfront outside the Two Oceans Aquarium, please check timetable for departure times.

Tours run for approximately three hours and passengers will not be allowed to hop off at stops. The tour culminates at Signal Hill, where passengers can enjoy their picnic baskets or snacks. It is highly recommended that you bring along a camera to capture the stunning views.
