Activity Description

This tour combines the beautiful scenery and sites of Historic Stellenbosch with excellent wine pairings and some healthy outdoor exercise.

The tour starts 9:00 at Adventureshop (located at Blackhorse Centre, Corner of Dorp and Mark Street). Each rider will collect a bike and helmet to suit their size. E-Bikes also available. We will carry a snack pack for each rider and the guide will have space in the backpack for those who would like to buy wine en-route.
The tour starts with a historic tour of Stellenbosch, visiting some of the historic sites in town. We will cycle through Stellenbosch and head to the scenic Jonkershoek Valley. A winding road through oak and poplar forests will take you to a wine estate nestled in the valley bottom, here you can take in the stunning views while doing wine tasting of award winning wines on an island in a lake.
On the way out of the valley, you will stop at another wine estate which sports beautiful grounds and historic Cape Dutch architecture. Here we will do a cellar tour before we start our Chocolate and Wine pairing that will make your taste buds tingle.

After the tasting we will head back into Stellenbosch Town via the Stellenbosch University before ending the tour again at our office

Customer Reviews

We really enjoyed our tour. It was a good mixture of culture, wine tasting an beautiful estates and cycling. Our guide was a super friendly guy!! And the warm welcome at the 2 estates was all well prepared. We would recommend it to everyone who’s in Stellenbosch for the first time! Thank you so much for being a part in making our roundtrip in South-Africa so unforgettable! - Lisette Bezemer

Great tour around Stellenbosch with Seve, who gave a funny and wonderfully interesting education of the local area as well as deliscious wines and chocolate, highly recommended. - Anna Benfield

A great tour through the vineyards. Could have done with one (or two) additional stops on outward journey to draw breath. - Nigel Sillick

I booked my two person tour completely last minute, I think the night before and The Adventure Shop in Stellenbosch confirmed my booking and provided a fit, informed and very pleasant guide. The second person on the tour did not show up and not only did the Adventure shop let me modify my tour to something more inclined to what I wanted, but they even provided me a partial credit for the no-show second person.This was very gracious of The Adventure Shop. I asked my guide if he could show me the Mtn. biking trails and some hiking and he guided me for four hours, continually checking to ensure my capabilities could manage the terrain. I saw parts of Stellenbosch I'd never be able to see otherwise and my guide was completely gracious, informative and caring. This made for a wonderful second last day in S. Africa and I got on the plane the next day feeling like the experience was the perfect end to an amazing visit in beautiful S. Africa. Finally, the woman who managed the office was also completely personable and helpful. I recommend this outfitter to anyone in search of a personable and challenging experience. - VICTORIA Bassett
