    Amazing history, landscape, buildings, stories absolutely worth it. The Abbey in Monte Casino such history. We had a lovely tour guide “Paolo” allowed us time to really take everything in, thankyou.

    Not really sure if they are open or not but the guard on the gate said we were welcome and got us a personal guided tour.

    Covid has hit them hard and they were definitely closed for a couple of years. I get the feeling they are trying to get back on their feet and maybe taken the opportunity to update some displays.

    We were shown specific things and didn't really get the chance to look at everything however what we learned was very informative and I definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area. Our guide was friendly and informative

    Would be a great place for schools to visit.

    Excellent visit.
    Not a HAUGE place. But young children and those with a appreciation for creation will love it here.
    Holding the baby croc especially was amazing.
    Oscar's pizzas are absolutely spot on. Definitely worth chilling and having a cool down with friends and family.

    This is a food market ( with almost no fresh produce, so don't be mislead by the 'farmer' in the name) with a variety of cusines served across the different stalls.

    The setting is quite relaxing with live bands/DJs/ open air bars and picnic style seating.

    There is a 10 rand fee to enter and the place gets quite crowded during the weekends.

    Definetely a fun afternoon out with family and friends.

    This was my second visit within a year to watch Test cricket here. - this time for SA v England As before I stayed at the nearby Protea Wanderers Hotel which is a c 10 minute walk through the Wanderers Club grounds to the stadium.

    By British standards the tickets are incredibly cheap R700 in total for the first four days - say £40, for great view seats in the shade in the Unity pavilion - not a pavilion in reality. On the fourth day for flexibility I bought tickets for the grassy bank (£5) and the wooden stand - £3 albeit the latter would easily fail a UK Health and Safety check.

    This is an iconic cricket stadium with a great atmosphere and you really only appreciate the aura of the ground when you are actually on the playing surface. There are excellent eating facilities all around the ground, usually at the back of the stands and toilets are good and well maintained. Plenty of bars open although they do tend to sell Castle lager but it does seem to keep the locals in good spirits.

    From my experience there are few Test grounds in the world where you can lie on the grass and watch a Test match in action. Although this ground is not Newlands, the SCG or Lords it is easy to get to from the UK ( no connecting flights needed) and there are good hotels in walking distance.

    Well worth a visit even if England aren't playing.

    The bowling alley was well maintained and it wasn’t that busy when we went but there were 2 thing i dislike.
    1. The staff didn’t have great customer service, they were like tired and bored out of their souls
    2. It was a little overpriced.
    Overall I enjoyed it

    What a great way to burn off some energy. The kids totally enjoyed the obstacle course and the water slide. The trapeze was a rather difficult one to overcome but they did it. Really recommend as a super break from a day

    We had a very memorable day with our guide Pastor who was enthusiastic & knowledgeable. We learned a lot of South African history particularly enjoyed visiting the Township of Soweto & seeing how people live there.

    We booked 3 trips in one day. We were an hour late for the first trip and 30 minutes late for the last trip. In between, the driver waited an hour for us while I had to visit the office for work. Fantastic service, no complaints or charges for delays, lovely, friendly drivers. Could not imagine a better service anywhere!

    We had my son's 6th birthday party at the Bike Park and I want to thank everyone especially, Siya, for making the day so much fun for my son and his friends.
    This is definitely a venue that I would recommend to anyone who wants to have a stress-free party with good food and plenty of exercise for the kids.
    Thank you Bike Park staff and management.
