Great!!!! Lynette is the best guide !!!

The guide is 10, it makes you love the mountain from minute 1. It tells you a thousand things about South Africa and the route. With her you will spend a perfect morning, 100% recommended. When I return I will repeat with her.

With a rented MTB I drove a ride over the flanks of Table Mountain and on Lionshead. Rental bike was well matched to length, we had contacted the guide about this beforehand. A great experience for experienced MTB riders!

Fun, different, and a great way to enjoy the great outdoors of Cape Town with some stunning views.

Fun activity, well co-ordinated and well led by excellent guides.

Very beautiful and challenging. Wonderful view along the way.
