Everyone wants to feel special on Valentine’s Day, and City Sightseeing’s tours give you the ideal opportunity to spoil your loved one.
So hop on the red bus and make a day of it with that special someone in your life.
To make it even easier for you, we’ve put together a list of romantic stops on the tours:
Forget roses and jewellery and make sure you treat your date to some chocolate. Studies have shown that eating chocolate leads to higher levels of desire, so begin the romance with a bit of indulgence and experience the decadent chocolate and wine pairing at Groot Constantia Wine Estate. City Sightseeing customers get R5 off all cellar tours and tastings.
Your next stop should be Kirstenbosch Gardens. Renowned for the beauty and diversity of its Cape flora, this little gem is the perfect backdrop to your Valentine’s meal. Even better than the view, is the 10% discount each red bus passenger receives on his or her meal at Moyo Kirstenbosch when spending more than R100.
Walk off that sumptuous meal with your king or queen on Camps Bay beach, which also gives you an opportunity to take a selfie on the golden thrones.
Walking is sure to make you thirsty and the Wheel of Excellence at the V&A Waterfront is the picture-perfect place to quench your thirst. View Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Cape Town city skyline, the Paarl Mountains and Cape Town Stadium while sipping on sparkling wine. Want to impress your date? Be sure to go for the VIP experience, which includes half an hour on the wheel and a bottle of sparkling wine.
But wait, there’s more, if you buy two one-day tickets online (www.citysightseeing.co.za), you’ll receive two Harbour Cruise tickets for free.
And the perfect ending to a picture-perfect day? The unrivalled view of the Mother City by sunset, of course. Hop on the Sunset Bus (this is a separate City Sightseeing tour and not included in the one-day ticket) for a trip up Signal Hill and watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean with your special someone.
