Ten days cycling our way though Cape Town, the Cape of Good Hope and the vineyards with Bike and Saddle was great fun. We were part of the group of 16 from CO, FL and CA and our guides were safe, friendly, funny and always on top of things--at times it was like herding cat's. The day cycling in the... More

There were 16 friends from Colorado, California and Florida in South Africa to bike tour Cape Town and the Wine Country over 10 days.. Most of the arrangements were left to Bike and Saddle to organize. Bikes, guides, lunches, many dinners, itinerary, transport and orchestration of all of the above were there responsibility. And they succeeded with flying colors. Good... More

When that amazing experience was completed, we flew to Cape Town to begin our 3 Day Cape Winelands Cycle tour with Bike & Saddle.

My friend and I opted for the half day Constantia wine region bike tour since we thought that it would be a less touristy way of seeing the wine country, and we'd get to maximise enjoying the Cape's amazing spring weather.
