    Doing this bike tour was one of the highlights of my staying in Cape Town. Amazing scenery, nice climbs and also you can visit some touristic spot like the penguings at boulder beach. The tour guide (Gideon) was amazing! Before the tour he helped me out in renting the bike and he was really flexible in building a route based on my preferences. During the ride he showed me amazing places, telling me also a bit of the history of some spots. Strongly recommend and since he offers also MTB tours, next time in Cape Town I’ll definitely do an offroad tour!
