We had a great time with Skeezo and Sylvis. We did a game drive bicycle tour over Buffelsfontein and !Kwattu game reserves, and it was amazing. The fresh air, the phsyical activity and the animals we saw on the way; all in all it is a great opportunity to see the animals in a slightly different way. We had a... More

We had a great time with Jaco in the winelands on our half-day bike, wine and chocolate tour. A definite highlight of our Cape Town visit! Jaco was super-friendly, bikes were perfect, and he took us to some really nice wineries. Highly recommend this trip for all ages -- we were a family of 5 with 3 kids ranging in... More

Who knew you could have so much fun on a bike around the Constantia Winelands of Cape Town in the rain! It rained a little bit on our full day bike tour, but it didn't seem to matter as we were either too busy cycling or too busy tasting wine at 4 different estates in this beautiful valley. And the...

Dear Safaritart, thank you for taking the time to write a review and for sharing your experience with other travelers. Weather can be finicky but I'm glad that it didn't detracted from the beauty of the winelands. Our guides always do their best to make the guests comfortable and sometimes a little "assist" makes the ride so much more enjoyable.... More

We are just back from a full day with Skeezo and his amazing driver ( sorry - forgot his name). We got a late start due to the GPS sending them in the wrong direction to get us. However, the trip did not suffer and the whole thing was a delight. There were 3 of us - husband and wife... More

Had an awesome time with Jaco and Patrick! It was a great way to see a few vineyards from the back roads, get some fresh air, exercise, and sample from just a couple of vineyards. I didn't really want to taste too much wine, so a half-day was the perfect amount! (2 full tastings.)

Had an amazing day cycling from Cape Town to Big Bay Blouberg with my very knowledgeable guide Patrick. It's a largely flat route which is good in the heat and you get a fantastic view of Table Mountain from round the other side so made several stops to take photos. It's great that Bike and Saddle don't charge a supplement... More

We really enjoyed our trip with Jaco (and his Dad). Jaco had a positive, energetic attitude and we felt that really we just enjoyed hanging out learning some interesting bits about Franschoek and the wines. I had thought, because it was billed as a cycling tour, there could have been more cycling. Perhaps ½ day isn’t sufficient to really get... More

I really enjoyed the entire process, from inquiry and booking, through to the two day trips I did, and the follow up. They are a class act.
