Best things to see on Cape Town Sunset Bus

The Sunset Bus is not a hop-on, hop-off tour like the other City Sightseeing tours but it does stop at Signal Hill to give passengers the opportunity to watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. Over the festive season, on the return to the V&A Waterfront, the bus takes a drive down Adderley Street for locals and visitors to experience the delightful display of festive season lights.

Where does the Cape Town Sunset Bus start?

It starts just outside the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront and returns here at the end of the three-hour round trip, stopping at Signal Hill for sunset and driving down Adderley Street for the delightful display of festive season lights.
