Red BusIn other places around the world it's known as the big bus, but in Cape Town and Johannesburg, it's the Red Bus, an open-topped double-decker that you can hop on and off of to get a better grasp of the city's layout; stops include the V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch, and Camps Bay. The Cape Town Red Bus runs frequently and is extremely popular, offering one of the best ways to explore a city that has copious views of mountains and ocean. The most popular tours are to Table Mountain, a 14-stop mini-peninsula tour, and an all-day tour of the entire peninsula.
