What an amazing adventure we had as a family exploring Cape Town, my husband and I riding pillion on the bikes and our children in the side cars. This was the first time I had ever been on a motorbike never mind the children, so I was a bit apprehensive but the drivers were very reassuring and I felt we were all in very safe hands. The drivers made the day our own, suggesting places we had not yet visited and tailored the tour accordingly. They both had great local knowledge and were very keen to impart this knowledge as the tour went on. Despite having a time schedule, we were able to stop and take time to look around, eat our picnic and take lots of photos without being rushed! I would highly recommend exploring Cape Town in this way, it was a wonderful and invigorating experience!

We had a great morning seeing some of the beautiful sights of Cape Town. It was an interesting way to travel around the city and a novel way to see sights we've seen before but in a new adventurous way. We really enjoyed our trip and the drivers were friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

Side-car Adventure treats your vacation with a real sense of adventure as you cruise the streets and roads of Cape Town, South Africa. From the "gearing-up' process of the leather jackets, helmets, visors, as well as complimentary bandanas, the rider's safety is the first order of business. Our guide, Donald - a native of Cape Town- took us North to Blouberg where the wildflowers were beginning to bloom and most tourists, just locals, venture to the beaches and views of the area. Our postcard photographs of the Table Mountain, Lions Head, etc. all come from our Sidecar Adventure Tour. Next time, we will book a longer tour rather than the 90 minute. Hint: Book online and receive a discount. Enjoy.

We went on a sidecar tour very spontaneously and got our tickets at the Waterfront office of Citysightseeing. The sidecar was ready after about 90 mins. The driver, Donald, made sure we felt safe on the absolutely wonderful vintage sidecar before taking us on the trip to Boulders Beach, Cape Point, through Hout Bay and along the spectacular Chapman's Peak Drive. Donald proved to be a good driver and a very kind and informative guide (and he took the most wonderful pictures I have to remind me of my stay in Cape Town, he is quite a talent!). The ride was an adventure in itself, and the landscape is magnificent to watch while riding along. The only point of improvement might be the stay at Cape Point – it was a little too short, so that we didn't make it back to the sidecar at the appointed time, although we didn't dawdle. But still, it was a great experience, absolutely recommended.

Thanks for your enthusiastic review of your sidecar trip.
Regarding the shortage of time. Unfortunately, sometimes the popular attractions that we visit en route are very busy with other visitors which affects the timing of the outing. If you'd like to enjoy another sidecar outing in the future, i'd like to suggest booking the full-day option which allows a lot more flexibility and allows for a more relaxed trip.

What a ride!!! 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 children, went for the coolest ride. Tim and three other drivers showed up outside our Camps Bay house on a beautiful July day. For the next 5 hours we rode the southern peninsula making various stops along the way. At each stop Tim and his 3 amigos pointed out things of interest and cracked a few, actually funny, jokes.. What a great time!!! A must do in Cape Town!
