A great experience!

It was quite exhausting to climb the long climb to the Cape of Good Hope, but the impression of the gradient landscape is much more intense than from the car window! And we could have switched to the car at any time! Many thanks to Meike, our super guide!

With a rented MTB I drove a ride over the flanks of Table Mountain and on Lionshead. Rental bike was well matched to length, we had contacted the guide about this beforehand. A great experience for experienced MTB riders!

Very nice guide, great landscape. Bicycles were not ideal. The saddle has always slid deeper. The drinking water was actually inedible, heavily chlorinated which is why I also attract a star.

David was outstanding!

We had a wonderful day. David is extremely knowledgeable and couldn't have been more accommodating . Everything was perfect.
