Went on a cycling tour in the winelands and had an amazing day. Guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. They adjusted tour to needs and fitness. It was a fun day with wine tastings, photo stops and cycling of course. Guides are very well informed about the area but kept it on an entertaining level. Lovely day. Back any time.

Superb . Faultless . Route management first class . Bamboo-frame bikes a first !! The ride up 'n over Franschheok mountain pass down to Greyton was a gem. Greyton is a stylish stunning wee town. Each day finished with a sublime, well deserved welcome power shower, followed by an evening of sybaritic pleasure and comfort. I will be back

Our seven day culinary-MTB tour of Cape Town and Winelands was a unique experience that exceeded our expectations by far.
