The overall experience with the City Pass was amazing. You just need to do a lot of activities to get the value of the purchase. One note: If you are doing the Vredenheim Big Cat Park - do not put in the adress in the Brochure. We gave the adress to our Uber driver and ended up at a gas station 5km away from the park. Put in Vredenheim Big Cat Park directly.

Great ticket lots included although not all are central Cape Town, we had other trips booked which enabled us to get the most use out of it. The premium ticket was well worth it too we did the Shark Diving

Highly Recommended. Sensationally organized tours…. Buses are on time, clean, safe and the routes are just great!
