A tough ride, if you go mountain biking without experience! Fortunately I was able to do the last part with the broom wagon. Lunch at Burgundy, unknown winery, was fine, drink in between at Bosschendal. The guide and the driver were very nice and helpful and after lunch we showed us a beautiful view of Franschhoek from the mountains.

Laid back! Nice guide, easy going. E-bikes are super easy and almost automatic. Thick tires. Nice stops done at various wineries. Sometimes some tasting, sometimes wine-food pairing. (Extra cost)

The guide and chauffeur were so nice and made us spend a really wonderful time. A must do as an activity in stellenbosch and Franschoek.

Great tour and cozy, tasty tasting. Compliments for the guide, he made this outing a success.

We really enjoyed the trail and it was well within our level of competence
