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.

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.

It was great! Top guide, nice ride, seen a lot and learned a lot.

Fun, adventurous & beautifull scenic surroundings!!
