Customer Reviews

An absolutely wonderful ride and Severo is a fabulous guide!! Easy going for the majority of the ride and any slightly difficult parts are made easy by the E-bike. Would highly recommend this experience. It's a joyful way to spend a day!! - Shelley

We had a great ride, I wish we had gone even further. We'd like to come back sometime and do a multi day trip! The bikes were good, scenery was beautiful, and a well run, professional, organization. The trail was fun! - Cathy

Our time riding around Stellenbosch was one of the absolute highlights of an amazing trip to South Africa! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming straight away and made sure we were comfortable. We rode around the city, through some vineyards, and around the countryside. The E-Bikes made sure that while we were generally in decent fitness, we never had to really struggle to do any of the riding. It was pleasant, fun, and we'll definitely do it again, as this won't be the last time we come to Stellenbosch. Thank you to everyone! - Andrew

Lovely guided ride from Stellenbosch to Boschendal with Sevo, bikes all good, lots of info along the way from knowledgable Sevo, plenty of off-road tracks and stunning scenery. Good service from Adventure shop. Thanks. Russ & Vix - Russell
