Our AWOL 10-day Garden Route Cycling Tour led by Dave was phenomenal! We rode mountain bikes since off-road riding was of interest. The cycling included: 1) around Cape Town, 2) around Franschhoek in Cape Winelands, 3) drove east to Oudtshoorn, 4) south from Oudtshoorn (no Robinson Pass crossing due to heavy rain), 5) south from Rheenendal to Buffel’s Bay followed...

Great 4hrs visit as a family. Educational, friendly, people were very nice. So much to discuss about with our children. A place where everyone learned something. The tour was pricy but well worth it and money helps the community. You have to go there!

Excellent tour with a very knowledgable guide. Good pace and a great way to see the city. Only suggestion would be a stop for coffee but I know this would eat into the available time

Our Cape Town City Cycle tour was really great. Our guide was really knowledgeable, the biking was fun and the group was small enough that it was manageable. I wasn't a huge fan of the way we biked through busy intersections and crossed busy streets - biking on the left side was an adjustment for me and even though I... More
