The tour from Stellenbosch to Franschoek was great, adventurous and fun. My tour guide Sevo Tamboer was friendly, helpful and very patient. I will definitely tour again with you guys. Adventure Shop rocks
Excellent tour service! They were very punctual and answered all my questions. Booked the transport to and game drive at Inverdoorn Reserve. Had a great time there. The following weekend I booked the Shark Cage Diving. Sadly I got sea motion sickness. My guide Colin was very considered and bought a bottle of mineral water and some mints for me.
We went for the ebike ride from Stellenbosch to franschhoek. At first glance it might appear expensive but it's actually great value. The ebikes are great. You have a stop for a drink then at the end lunch with small wine tasting included. They also provide water and a support vehicle which will follow behind en route. You start at 9am and get back about 4 pm. We had Sevo and Colin looking after us for the day, great fun. Highly recommended :-)
Bike was fine but when I arrived to rent a bike on a Saturday, it was told me that I needed to return the bike earlier because they were going to close. The service is very amateur.
