In 2009 City Sightseeing Cape Town was awarded as the “International City Sightseeing Operator of the Year” (against more than 80 international competitors), in recognition of its innovation, customer service, overall brand experience and commitment to environmental sustainability.
GreatGuide contributed to this by providing the complete tour guide system and commentary. GreatGuide has since proved an intrinsic contributor to the ubiquitousness and success of City Sightseeing Cape Town – a large fleet of double decker red buses which patrol the city's must-see routes. Each coach is outfitted with a state of the art GreatGuide Multi-Language Multi-Route system, which allows informative sound bytes about Cape Town's top sites to flow through headphones in 16 different languages. The pre-recorded sound bytes “fire” or trigger automatically according to the GPS coordinates of the buses.
GreatGuide was commissioned by City Sightseeing Cape Town to develop the fully integrated end-to-end solution, which has proved popular with thousands of visitors. The fleet has grown significantly and is now expanding into night tours as well...
“GreatGuide has helped make City Sightseeing Cape Town one of the most cutting edge open-air tours on the road. Their complete total solution, of content plus hardware, has delivered beyond our expectations."
