Customer Reviews

Great experience, great staff, very friendly Just Go for it - André

We had an amazing time with a fabulous guide. Everything from arranging the adventure, to pick-up, drop-off and everything in between was totally professional. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and attentive. We highly recommend booking a tour with the Adventure Shop in Stellenbosch. - Christine

great guide, great tour, great food - Bruno

I absolutely loved our bike tour! Sev, the tour guide, was an excellent cyclist and cycling instructor, with a great and encouraging attitude who clearly knew his stuff! He made sure we didn't miss any of the fun stuff while also making sure that participants of all cycling levels felt comfortable and were able to safely enjoy themselves as well. The views and scenery were also just absolutely fantastic. This was one of the most fun activities I have done in 7 years of traveling to Cape Town - I recommend it for anyone reasonably able to ride an e-bike for 50k/30mi! - Morgan

We really enjoyed the mountainbike tour around Stellenbosch that pushed the limits of some of our family members. Animals, wine and good food during a well organised tour! - Roger
