A local guide joins you, sharing stories of Cape Town's vast history and heritage as you go.
This is a really great tour operated by the most helpful people. We had to change date, then change time, then add a person, then subtract a person. At all times the staff were so helpful. When we finally got on the tour, with rather nice road bikes, our guide Mike was excellent. He was knowledgeable, interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. A really enjoyable cycle. We also received a water bottle memento to remind us of their great tour
We like doing bike tours in cities that visit. Unlike in other cities, this tour had lots of cycling involved but it truly gave you a great view of the city.
I often do bike tours during trips - it allows you to cover much more ground than walking and gives you a better feel for the city than driving around in tour buses. It also gives you taste of places in the city you might want to go back to. This tour was excellent. Our guide, Neils sp?, was opinionated I like that and provided good information about the history and current state of Cape Town. The bikes were high quality and kept in great mechanical condition. Our tour on a Wednesday in October was small, just the 4 of us and one other couple, so it was easy to bunch up at the numerous stops and hear the guide I appreciate this because I have been on other tours where 12 or more people are trying to hear the guide - it just does not work. My only criticism is that I wish this tour was 30 to 60 minutes longer. The pace was not tiring and there were many older and architecturally-interesting buildings in Cape Town that I would have liked to have heard about that we rode by during the tour.
This was a fun excursion! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared much information about the area. This was our first day in Cape Town and did not know what to expect. So, we rode our bikes through areas, stopped at a church, and was told to be careful around the train station and watch out for valuables. Not to worry, we have been to large cities before. I had booked a private tour and we finished in just under 3 hours. It was a few days later that we actually went on another tour of the city that showed the old fortress, and a church where Mandela gave his speech. It seemed like there were more places we could have rode and spent less time in a church.
