Customer Reviews

Great way to The city and great guide!! - Raphael Oertel

very nice tour much information about the city lovely guide Pedro - good assistance for a bike problem in a few hours you see a lot of the city. - Bart Vanwynsberghe x6

This was amazing and the best way to see Cape Town! This was the second time we have visited and we wanted something a bit different - there were four of us - my wife and two daughters - 19/20 - and we had a great laugh. We saw more and learnt more about the fascinating history and evolution of this amazing City. Our guide was brilliant - a must do for any one visiting! - Peter Boddy x4

We had a really great day on the bikes! It was a nice experience to see the city of Cape Town from that perspective - it is different (but better and closer) to cycle or walk through a park or market, than driving by bus. You are faster than just walking, but can take your time, when you want to. Only thing is, that we missed to take more pictures. BUT that's a good motivation to come back to South Africa and visit the city again! :) Thank you Bennett for that cool and nice day in Cape Town - really good job! Regards, Melanie & Andi - Melanie Esser

Really a great Tour! A very nice guide, perfect bikes, and a lot to see. We hope we van do it again! Thanks - Barbera attema
