Guided city cycle tours are increasing in popularity all over the world as the preferred way to explore the historical sites. So if you have cycled through the streets of Paris, over London Bridge and through through Stanley Park in Vancouver, the next stop is Cape Town’s company gardens to the backdrop of Table Mountain and the historic wine valley of Stellenbosch. stellenbosch cycling tour1

Apart from our City cycle tour in Cape Town which leaves daily from the V&A Waterfront Tourism Information centre, it’s now also possible to do a guided bike tour of Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa

The tour leaves from the Adventure Shop in Stellenbosch visiting the historic sites of Stellenbosch Town, into the scenic Jonkershoek Valley where the mountains form part of a UNESCO World heritage site.

A winding road through oak and poplar forests leads to a wine estate nestled in the valley bottom, here you can take in the stunning views while doing wine tasting of some award winning wines.

This will be followed by a circular route taking you further into the Jonkershoek Valley where you can enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding mountains.On the way out of the valley, you will stop at another wine estate which sports beautiful grounds and historic Cape Dutch architecture. We will do a Chocolate and Wine pairing that will make your taste buds tingle. After the tasting we will head back into Stellenbosch Town via the famous Stellenbosch University before ending the tour in Dorp Street.
