My guide was passionate and well versed on the history and current events of Cape Town and South Africa. A relaxed ride throughout the city with many stops to provide context and historical significance. Definitely recommended!

Our guide (Melanie) was very friendly and knows a lot about Cape Town. The tour was about 3,5 hours across the city and the coast. Encounter the city by bike and you will see a lot off Cape Town.

Great experience to sightsee by bike, especially due to a nice guide and good stops on the way. You def. get better insights this way. We had even our six year old with us - so no panic - manageable:-)

AWOL Tours was great to deal with when I organised this tour before arriving in Cape Town. Our tour guide was very informative and our family (2 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 13) gained a great insight into life in the township.
