Customer Reviews

What a memorable and great experience! There are such terrific views of the mountains, wildlife and birds. To say that our guide was brilliant is an understatement too! Very, very highly recommended to anyone and everyone. Can't wait to do it again (and again) ? - Hilary

What I fun morning. Lovely hosts & gorgeous views. - Ronel

Wine Valley Adventures 2 Hour Quad Bike tour was both interesting and a whole lot of fun. We booked as a family of 6 adults ranging from absolutely no previous experience to just a bit of experience. Seeing the fun in the faces of the family as we went through both scenic, and in some places mildly challenging tracks, was just magic. The family all raved about their experience afterwards. The Wine Valley Adventures team are down to earth people. They made sure we were never stuck, or lost and that we all had fun. They were just great and helped to make the experience all and more than we expected. I have no hesitation in recommending this experience. It was just awesome. Regards Vic Currin - Vic

My son and I had a fantastic time on the 2 hour quad trail ride. The leadership and guiding was faultless and the scenery breath-taking. The ride took us through a variety of trails and environments giving us a great opportunity to explore this part of the Paarl valley. I would thoroughly recommend it ! - Lewis

Took my daughter for her first quad ride. Instruction was great and she felt comfortable, supported and confident the whole way up and down the mountain on her own. The bikes we great and well maintained. What a beautiful place to ride, we will cherish the memories. Bucket list stuff! Thanks to the team! - MikeT
