A small group from the International Young Water Professionals Conference in Cape Town went on this City Cycle tour on 14 December 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well presented and compiled and a fantastic way to see the whole city in a morning - really stunning views and atmosphere!

My wife and I had a wonderful tour of the city with Sele and his son. We stopped at a few historical sites and we were fascinated by the events that unfolded there in the past. I would definitely recommend this to any other first time visitor to Cape Town. - ROBIN GEORGE THOMAS
