The Mother City has so much to offer, but when experienced on a guided cycle tour, Cape Town and its many wonders are even more spectacular. Whether you want to go off the beaten track to see the West Coast’s wildlife from up close, marvel at Table Mountain from one of the most beautiful vantage points or enjoy scenic views as you glide along Chapman’s Peak, one of the world’s most iconic coastal routes, there is a bicycle tour that you will love!
Red Bus Tour
Hop onto their open top red bus and explore the Mother City, as she is affectionately known. With over 30 stops, and taking you to over 50 of Cape Town’s top attractions, the bus allows you to hop-on and hop-off at your leisure.
Catch a Train and Drink some Wine
The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley – picturesque vineyards, breathtaking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300-year history.
Passengers aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in a vintage-style railway tram and open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.
