Customer Reviews

Myself, my wife and our 2 grown up children deicide on the Scootour because it looked like it would be fun, and get us out of Knysna front. We weren't disappointed, after a short trip into the hills, a quick demo on how to ride the scooters and away we went. Both our guides were very friendly and informative about the forna and flour. We followed one of the guides down why the other took the minibus and trailer down to me us. The ride down varied from a slow roll to an exciting last run on tarmac. Great few hours of fun - Neil

The Scootours was an absolutely amazing experience for us as a family. We wished it could be a bit longer, cause we really got into things and it was a super day. Your staff are excellent in what they do and I think the whole group had a blast. Thank you too for this amazing gift as I was fortunate enough to win the voucher at a Zumbathon last year. - Lenise

We had so much fun with the scootours. Thank you so much for the great experience we had. - Mariska - Pili Pili Sedgefield

The first time that I did scootours was in 2016 on the Table Mountain. It was so fantastic that I wanted to do it again. When I saw that it's also in Knysna I booked immediately! The tour was running only for myself. It was amazing!! Great guide and driver!! Thank you very much!! - Stephanie
