Customer Reviews

Absolutely great experience! Super friendly guides, very knowledgeable about the area & the nature. Lovely sense of humour & just an overall fantastic day! I have already booked my next tour! Suitable for young & old, it's just a really great way to see the town in a different way, whilst having a great time. - M Lutz

Absolutely worth it, can't wait to do it again. - Johan van der Walt

Enjoyed every moment!! Guide great!! - Julie Timmers

The tour from Stellenbosch to Boschendal was challenging enough: in most cases we had the choice between an easy or a difficult route. The scenery is stunning with wildlife around you. The bikes are superb and the guide just as good. A 5* experience! - Berend van Geffen

Hi We did this for my son's 12th birthday and he really enjoyed it. Being only the 3 of us, it really made it special and our guide were great with him. It was also a first for us all on an e-bike, so for the first time I haven't sweat while going up Helshoogte on a bike! Thanks for all the effort and personalized attention from your staff, it made it intimate and special. Kind regards - Adri Badenhorst
