Customer Reviews

Fantastic ride and great tour guide. Really loved the experience!! - Cara Breero

Nice Ride, Severiano is so lovely as a guide. Would recommend 100% - Paul Varcoe

Fantastic experience! We really enjoyed the ride through the beauty of the landscape. The off-road track was slightly challenging in some parts for me (not a mountain bike expert) but absolutely doable and lot of fun. Bikes in perfect conditions and very professional guide. Highly recommended! - Polonca Fuks

We had a WONDEFUL time on out trip with Sevo! He and the other guides really made it special, and it was the highlight of our SA trip; thank you! - Kate Reeves

10/10. Incredible experience! Must do when visiting Stellenbosch. Amazing views, informative guides and unforgettable adventure. - Frans Joubert
