“Best way to see the Cape town area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Not the most comfortable way to take a tour of the cape town area but easily the best.
Trixie our driver was great. Very friendly and eager to make sure we were having a great time.
The bikes are old and basic but that was part of the attraction and on a nice warm sunny day you can appreciate the clean air of the cape and have the full benefit of the amazing scenery.
Be prepared to have your photo taken by other jealous tourists who are on the bus tours.

“A fun way to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We had the pleasure of a full day peninsula trip. Donald took great care of us and carefully planned how we wanted to spend the day. He was really friendly and informative and we enjoyed every minute of the day.

“Fun ride, not the full two hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

I was very excited for this ride - chose it instead of going on winery tours with my husband. Arranged with Tim to be picked up at 9:45 at hotel (very nice service) and dropped in town at noon. Driver arrived at 10:10 and dropped me at 11:45. Car was quite old - not like the photos on the website. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride - wished it were longer and in a cooler car

hi barbara,

Thanks for taking the time to review your outing on one of our sidecars. My apologies for your late pick-up and early drop-off. It is absolutely contrary to our mission statement which is to provide a service which far exceeds our guests' expectations. This obviously wasn't the case on your outing. I have discussed this with the driver concerned & we have taken steps to ensure this sloppy service will not be repeated.
Regarding our sidecars. They are all hard-working vintage sidecars from the 1960's and, although we maintain them in the safest possible state of roadworthiness, they are all pretty old and some of them tend to look somewhat scruffy. We choose authenticity at the expense of coolness, i'm afraid..
If you're back in our beautiful Cape Town again sometime, I would be more than happy to treat you to a complimentary outing and hopefully be able to show off our true colours..

“Fun fun fun”

Had the pleasure of a two hour tour, with my daughter (10) in the sidecar.We both really enjoyed it! A great way to see all the beauty of the cape. A great addition to the hop on hop off bus, and great fun for kids. (and adults)...

“What a Treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

We were a bit apprehensive as my wife has walking difficulties and we were concerned about her getting in and out of the sidecar. We needn't have worried as our driver, Eugene, was very helpful and it was much easier than we thought. We went on the short tour up the coast and what a wonderful experience it was, great fun and Eugene was very informative. We are both the wrong side of 60, but don't let age or disability put you off, go for it, you won't be disappointed.
