It’s family fun season for City Sightseeing, the company that runs Cape Town’s red tourist busses and canal cruises.

Children can enjoy free trips on both the City Sightseeing open-topped sightseeing buses and their canal cruise boats this holiday, when accompanied by a paying adult.

Two children can accompany one paying adult for free until Thursday 15 October.

City Sightseeing’s three-for-one special for children is also valid for weekends, school holidays and public holidays.

Day tickets for bus tours give travellers access to all four of the bus routes, covering the Cape Peninsula.

Alternatively, children and their parents can swop the road for water and pay just R35 for a trip for two children under 18 and an adult on the canal cruise boat which runs every 30 minutes from 09:00 to 17:00.

A canopy will keep “seafarers” dry, while they can learn about Cape Town’s marine history in a choice of 16 languages.

The three-for-one special for children becomes even more of an outing if grandparents get involved. The special can be used together with City Sightseeing’s pensioners’ special, which runs on a Tuesday and a Friday, and allows pensioners to buy half-price tickets for the bus and boat. So grandparents can pay half price and still take two of their grandchildren along for free. V
