We are three couples in our fifties. We did the half day tour of Cape Town which actually went longer. Just great fun on a nice day. We had toured the Cape the day before in a van so had done Chapmans Peak drive already but it was great to do it again. We stopped at different vantage points. Nice lunch at Groot Constantia. We had a coffee stop which we really didn't need and so ran out of time to do a couple of other things since we had another tour waiting for us . Very professional group. We weren't scared but obviously there is a risk if there were to be an accident. Everyone on the street either smiled, waved or took our picture. May be the only place in the world with such a tour. The wives rode the side car and the men were in a second seat behind the driver, holding on to a handle .Enjoy!

“Cape Sidecar Adventures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

One would have to look hard to find something more fun and enjoyable. What a super day the Cape Town Motorcycle Club riders had when they took out a number of the side cars for a ride to Melkbos. The sidecars cause such a stir as you drive along and people take photos out of their car windows. The whole experience is just so different.

“Great way to see Cape Good Hope and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Great trip, and our driver, Donald, did a great job! The reason we don't give 5 stars is because we feel we were given a bit too short time at each attraction. It was a bit rushed. But as we understood our driver, he had complained to the management about the same several times, and the schedule would become different next month or something. So that will hopefully not be a problem for future rides.

Thanks for taking the time to review your sidecar outing. I'm really sorry that you felt rushed. Unfortunately there's so much to see and do on our outings that there is a big temptation for the driver to add extra stops, or spend longer at stops, along the way. Your driver, Donald, was correct in telling you that from October 2013, our routes & timings will change that will hopefully enable our guests to enjoy their experience at a more leisurely pace.

“A trip that must be done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

What a fantastic way to see Cape Town and the surrounding areas. You get an up close and personable view that you will not get on a tour bus. The driver/guide Kevin, was so knowledgeable thet we came away learning so much. If we ever return to Cape town in the future,and I hope we do, we will not hesitate to do another trip With this company. If you want to see this beautiful part of the world then doing it in this way is possibly the best way

“Amazing family adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

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!
