The Hop on Hop Off City SightSeeing Tour Bus has recently expanded its repertoire to include the opportunity to view the scenic Mother City at night. A means to escape the daily hubbub of the bustling city, the Night Bus provides both foreigners and locals with a unique perspective of Cape Town.
Departing from the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, the Night Bus is distinctly different from the ‘hop on hop off’ day bus. For this tour, all passengers remain as a group for the 3 hour journey on a large loop around the city via Sea Point and Camps Bay to Signal Hill and back over Kloof Nek to the Waterfront. As there is only one Night Bus per night, this makes logistical sense but it also creates a different atmosphere amongst the passengers – a sense of friendly camaraderie which reaches its zenith at the long pit stop for sundowners together on Signal Hill.
The Night Bus departs every day from the 2 Oceans Aquarium at 6pm( 1 Nov to 6 March) and 5.30pm( 9 March- 3 May).
