Bevan was our guide on a 3-4 hour ride thru the Tokai park. He's knowledgeable, a great cyclist, and an entertaining conversationalist. He showed up on time, had great equipment for us ready to go, and made sure we had what we needed throughout the ride. very accommodating and responsive. We had a blast. The ride itself was challenging (lots of climbing and technical single track), and stunningly beautiful. AWOL is a solid company.

Dear raweil, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your AWOL Tours Mountain Biking experience. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the guiding expertise and company of your AWOL guide Bevan and the beautiful challenging Tokai Nature reserve. Private mountain biking tours allow us to ensure that guests can really enjoy an experience to their preferred pace and technical preference. AWOL spent last year Winter exploring the Cape Town and surrounds for more mountain biking options and now have a really unique portfolio of cycling adventures to suit every fitness and technical level. Thank you again for the recommendation, this is so very much appreciated. AWOL looks forward to welcoming you back to Cape Town for more mountain biking bliss. Kind regards, Helen AWOL Tours.

We had the best bike tour EVER in Cape Town, Danielle our tourguide was so great, she had so much knowledge about the city, she was funny, she had a lot of patience (for my mother of 76 it was sometimes a bit hard to take the kerbstones), she took us to unknown beautiful squares, churches, parks, coffeebars. I would recommend this tour to everybody even when you think you already know the town (like we did).

Our guide, Jeremy, was excellent. We spent two days with him and he was very polite, kind and patient with us throughout. Our party didn't have a lot of hiking experience, but he got us through it with smiles intact!

Great half-day tour with family. Great guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. Beautiful experience. Would recommend to others. Definitely not cheap and half-day is long enough.
