Customer Reviews

My wife and I had a wonderful tour of the city with Sele and his son. We stopped at a few historical sites and we were fascinated by the events that unfolded there in the past. I would definitely recommend this to any other first time visitor to Cape Town. - ROBIN GEORGE THOMAS


I had a great time at this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed learning about Cape Town while getting a mild exercise on the bicycle. - Peyman Heydari


Excellent day trip around Cape Town. Guide was full of history and more than happy to chat about it. He also took us to the coffeeshop with the best coffee in town! Gave us some great recommendations for our time there. Cheers! - Gary & Marie McDonald


City Cycling is a very interesting way to get to know a city in a few hours. I went with Joel and he was very inspiring and talented to tell all you want to know about Cape Town. History, the people, food, buildings ... There are not many bicycle lanes so you have to go with your bike in the traffic. A little bit scary sometimes. The bike was not as good as you could expect. The brakes was slow and made a terrible noice. I recommend City Cycling as first choice for a city tour in Cape Town. Cecilia - Cecilia Hansen


Really enjoyed the cycle tour of Cape Town. Our guide was very informative and took us to a number of sites which our relatives in Cape Town were not familiar with. His knowledge of the history and stories he provided about the culture of the place, really leant us a great understanding of the places we visited. The pace and route was relaxed and you don't have to be a competitive cycler to enjoy the day. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who cycles and wants to see a bit more of the City. - Robert Wallis
