WE did two: the first an orientation of Cape Town, which I highly recommend. No better way to be acquainted with the city and so much was covered with relatively little effort. At times it was crazy with crowds (V & A) but at no time did we feel unsafe. We couldn't have asked for a better start to our... More

I was excited for this tour, but sorely disappointed by the logistics. I was told to meet at 8:45 for a 9 am roll. When I arrived I was asked by one guide to have a coffee and wait for another guide. I waited over an hour for the guide to arrive, and though he was apologetic, this really messed... More

My sister and I had a great day on a 'Sip and Cycle Tour of Franschhoek vineyards'. Quite a strenuous start on mountain bikes, but our tour was adjusted in the afternoon to a more leisurely cycle. We visited 5 beautiful vineyards, all different in style with lovely wine. Lunch was a high quality buffet. Our two tour guides were... More

I did the 1/2 day Table mountain MTB tour. On the positive side, guides Skeezu and Tony were really a delight to be with. And they were quite flexible and accommodating in modifying the tour when I ran out of steam on the mountain. Yes, if you want to bike table mountain, I'd suggest a really good fitness level is...

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
