The perfect Canal Uber

It was very interesting to hear the commentary, the view was beautiful and the punctuality and friendliness was astounding. And the fact that you can use the pass for the whole day to operate between the hotel and waterfront is such a bonus.

Thanks for the feedback. The canal tour is a 25minute cruise and sadly takes you to the end of the canal and back. We can't make the canal any longer.....

Wonderful way to travel between hotel and VA watefront. Great sights of beautiful properties. Wish you could do a multiday pass and that there were more canals to explore :)

Not a good system of booking.

I paid for 2 persons and only got 1 sms to download and on this download only 1 ticket was reflected. It caused much embarrassment.

Sorry that you did not like the way Viator sends you your tickets. This with respect is beyond our control. We can only issue boarding passes according to the vouchers you present on the day. All the same, I trust you enjoyed the cruise with us!

Hopeless

Was totally unable to find any of the boarding places, the instructions for which were clearly written by someone who has never been to the place. Complete waste of money.

Thank you for your review. I have just purchased a ticket which confirms the departure at the V&A Waterfront, next to the Two Oceans Aquarium. We have very clear signage in Red directing you to both the Harbour and canal boats from there. (Our harbour boats are right there with staff on duty) I am sorry you felt it was un-clear but I am not sure how to make that any clearer.

Canal cruise & harbour cruise of the Victoria Waterfront in Cape Town
Sylvia3144
, Oct 2019
We hopped on the canal boat located behind the Aquarium in downtown Cape Town, boat trip was around 1/2 hr. showcasing all the properties built in and around the canal. You can either stay on to do the full cruise around the canal, or, decide to hop off and then get back on tag a later time. We then hopped on the harbour cruise boat that went around the harbour area showcasing the harbour, buildings built around the harbour, landmarks, etc. Took around 45 minutes to do the whole tour without getting off the boat. Nice trip on a beautiful sunny day!
