We had great fun on the tour!! ...We had done another wine tasting tour only a couple of weeks earlier in New Zealand and this was far and away the best one!
We only got to see two vineyards (and a chocolatier - nominal extra cost) and although we had expected we would visit more, we actually enjoyed that we got to spend a large amount of time in both and really learn about the wines (particularly at the second one we visited), rather than be rushed from one vineyard to another.
A really fun way to see the area and some brilliant vineyards to try! - Highly Recommended!
Phenomenal trip. The views of the city are that much more breathtaking from the motorcycle than by car. You will definitely enjoy this tour if you like wine.
An amazing experience! It allows you to fully soak up moment with all the senses.
This was a brilliant day! We were very impressed with the guide's knowledge and how friendly he was. There was no obligation to do anything that we did not want to do, and he was very knowledgable about the different vineyards. We spent an amazing day tasting some great wines, and had a lovely lunch. We even invited our guide to join us for lunch as he was such great company. This is definitely the way to see the Winelands, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in seeing Cape Town from a different perspective. Suzi
Fantastic! Great way to see the wine lands. Felt very safe and was so enjoyable. I was in the sidecar whilst my mum, who is 70, rode pillion! Our guide, Donald, was brilliant. Cannot rate it high enough. Will spread the word! Great day out.
This tour was the highlight of our Cape Town trip. Our chauffer, Kevin, was the most well traveled and knowledgeable person we met in South Africa. Cape Winelands are just beautiful, my wife and I can't say enough about our amazing tour. We will remember this forever.
The CJ750 bikes were manufactured for the Chinese army between the mid-1950s and mid-1970s, and the sidecars are at least 30 years old. They’re hardly models of dynamic excellence, but they’re great fun – especially when you’re bombing down the motorway with the wind in your face. On my trip, our first stop is at the Fairview Estate, a quirky vineyard where goats live in a tower out the front. There’s a huge range of wines available for tasting – and most are of a very good quality – and plenty of cheeses to match them with. Pretty much next door is the Seidelberg Estate, with its own glass-blowing studio.

Great fun. The wines were all quite good but really the reason for taking this tour is the motorbike - sidecar experience. Wonderful!
Capturing the Cape Winelands by sidecar was a fantastic and unique way to tour wine country. Patrick was prompt, courteous, attentive, and shared his insight on Cape Town and wine country. We even got a tour of the waterfront and Signal Hill--complete with pictures--as part of our excursion. Getting picked up and dropped off at our door step was a huge convenience.
