Disappointed. Not what we were expecting. Table Mountain Cable car tickets were not included when we thought they were. Not long enough stop at mountain was only given 30 min and every other stop was just a drive by. Should be advertised as just a three hour city drive. Felt

Tour was very good, the driver was very kind and at the very end he asked about the drop-off location. A bot down because we could not get at top of Table Mountain because the Cable car was under maintenance, but still a good experience.

We grabbed a bus in the Waterside and travelled around the city on the top deck. The commentary was excellent and we felt we both learnt a lot. An excellent way to see the important parts off the city. Strongly recommend it to any visitor
