Customer Reviews

It was a great experience, something unique within spectacular surroundings. Nico, our guide was awesome, funny, patient and ensured all had a good time no matter their level of experience. Our kids had the most fun, and that was the focal point. Great all round and worth it. Highly recommend it, and will do it again soon. Regards - Brett

Great experience to go down hill with the scoot bike! Nice pictures afterwards. We have good memories and will look if we can do it again somewhere. Thanks! Marleen and arthur - Arthur & Marleen de waardt

Great fun and superb guides. Lots of fun! - Rupert Pleasant

We had a great time taking the scooters with our 2 children down the vineyards and off-road paths. The guides gave us a very safe feeling and we rewarded ourselves with a picnic at the wineyard. A fantastic day! - Rudolf Fleischmann

Fabulous thing to do , we explored the amazing hillsides of the winery’s and experienced an Adrenalin buzz freewheeling down some valleys round Franschhoek Valley . The scenery was breathtaking and I felt priveledged to be in this wonderful country. The flora and fauna was up close and our guide explained all about the landscape and surroundings. The bike is very sturdy and after a couple of gentle practice slopes it’s very easy to learn what to do - if you can ride a bike , you will love it, as you get all the enjoyment of the downhill without the hard work of getting up to the top of the hills! Without doubt one of the best activities I have done and what a way to see the awesome scenery on a panoramic view...great way to turn 50 ! - Alison Hall
