Mark is an excellent guide who has an excellent knowledge of the area. The route he chose was superb, and gave me the opportunity to see all the best scenery on the peninsula. We stopped off to see the penguins at Simonstown and saw baboons, ostriches and a good variety of birds en route. Highly recommended!

I booked this cycling tour very last minute as other local cycle hire shops failed to respond, Mark was the total opposite he responded straightaway which was fantastic. After a few emails I had confirmed a long ride with cycle hire passing through all the areas that I really wanted to experience before the end of my South African holiday.... More

Mark provided a great experience from the first time we had contact until the end of the tour that he took me on. His follow up was excellent. He took me on an excellent bike tour of the Cape Peninsula area. He is very knowledgeable of the area and planned an excellent route for us. Having Mark as a guide... More

Mark must be good....he got me up Chapman's Peak not once but twice!!! Conditions were hot and very windy, but I trusted his judgement and after a quick warm-up loop, a few jelly babies we were off to conquer Chappies! Mark is an excellent leader who caters for all levels of ability. He's very safe and his local knowledge is... More

Sitting on the couch in Holland we created the plan to cycle up to Chapmans peak. Living in an almost flat country and far away from Houtbaai an easy decision :) Just to be sure we have searched for a professional helping us out, Mark is the man for the job. We were impressed with is sense of planning, road... More

Mark took me on two terrific cycle tours of the peninsula, both booked at late notice. I hadn't brought any kit, but Mark had shoes, pedals and everything else I needed. I was really impressed with Mark's route choices - we covered some of the best roads I've ever cycled on with minimal traffic and great consideration of wind, time... More

Right from the initial contact Mark was swift to reply, helpful and full of knowledge. Upon arrival my bike was fitted for me and the few days were outlined. He had pitched the route spot on given my cycling ability. The first day was a fantastic route down the Atlantic Seaboard over Chapmans peak along the peninsula and back over... More

We went out with Mark for a full day, biking from cape point back to camp's bay area. The day that we went it was exceedingly windy, so Mark adjusted the route to fit the conditions and our level of skill while also keeping all of the main attractions. As a guide, Mark is really great. He knows a lot... More

Having rented a road bike from Mark for just a few days two years ago, it was an easy choice to use his great service once more on my return to Cape Town for a lot longer this time around. Delivery to the door and collection afterwards put the icing on it. Much recommended.
