Bike & Saddle offered great customer service, picked great wine locations in Franschhoek, and took us on one of the most scenic bike rides we've ever been on. The wineries we went to were wonderful and being able to travel by bike made it that more enjoyable. Patrick and Tony were great hosts and we hope to see them again!

An absolutely fantastic day with Skeezo and Tony. We visited 4 wineries where we were treated like royalty. Our guides were very knowledgeable about the area and we had wonderful discussions about South Africa as a whole. One of the highlights of our 2.5 week trip to South Africa. Not to be missed!

My husband and I had the most wonderful time visiting the vineyards of Franschhoek with Bike & Saddle (and a special thanks to Skeezo, Ida, and Silvas) this past October. We went to beautiful wine estates, saw gorgeous scenery, learned about South African history, and of course sampled many different types of wine, and chocolate and biltong as well. The... More

There are not enough superlatives to describe our cycling wine tour today in the capable hands of Skeezo (our guide) and Silva (our driver). En route to Franschoek Skeezo covered so many aspects of South African history, culture and politics which we found fascinating. On arrival the organisation was first class and the choice of wineries utterly delightful offering the... More

Our bike and saddle wine tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Skeezo and Silva were full of info and took us to stunning wineries, not to mention delicious. With the chase van behind on the main roads we felt very safe. We highly recommend this experience, it was awesome!
