Easy pedaling ride through center of Cape Town, along with a history lesson. I wish we had done this on our 1st day instead of our last day in Cape Town. Friendly, knowledgeable guides.

This was a good introduction to Capetown. Having said that we have done quite a few bicycle tours across the world. Value for money this was average. At a lower price point I would recommend this.

Thanks so much for taking out the time to share your experience of doing the City cycle tour in Cape Town. As a small business we are constantly evaluating the costing and looking for ways to make our tours more affordable. There are cheaper tours available in Cape Town but we prefer not to cut corners and offer high quality tour experiences. For a tour that has guaranteed daily departures even with one person (yes we do still depart with one guest and operate at a loss), commitment to small group numbers (one tour guide for every 8 guests) experienced guides who earn respectable incomes and a good quality well maintained fleet of bikes. Not to mention the bottled water and taste of the Bo-Kaap en route, we still think this to be great value for a highlights tour of Cape Town.
