During the leisurely ride you will enjoy viewing the local scenery, tasting some of the internationally acclaimed local wines before returning for a leisurely lunch in the vineyards.
My sister and I had an awesome day of cycling and adventure. Neither of us had been on a bike for quite some time so we were very apprehensive but were put totally at ease by Mandy and ended up surprising ourselves. We were met By Mandy in the morning and spent most of the day cycling round Knysna, stopping for coffee at a lovely little coffee shop and then for lunch. We will most certainly be back, this is a must for anyone who loves a little something different that includes exercise, loads of fun and exceptional views of Knysna. Thank you Mandy it was the highlight of our holiday.
- A group of friends decided to do the Garden Route wine cycle day tour and it certainly did not disappoint. Well organized, loads of fun, some decent exercise and stunning scenery. The local wineries were so impressive with wonderful whites and bubbly. Will more certainly go again and Mandy and her team and fantastic guides making the whole experience seamless and enjoyable.
What a wonderful day of relaxed cycling and wine tasting with friends. A friendly and very efficient operation. I'll definitely be back for more.
The cycle through the vineyards is such fun, and a very unique way to enjoy some of South Africa's best wines & champagnes. The wine makers are very friendly & offer delicious snacks to go with the wine tasting. The walks are educational and offer the most spectacular views and photo opportunities. This is a MUST for anyone visiting the Garden Route, Western Cape.
This was the best trip that we did on our holiday. Despite being ill the day before, Anne of Knysna Hike and Bike really went out of her way to reschedule us later in the day so that we were able to enjoy our trip. Although a little concerned about whether we would be able to manage or enjoy the trip, our expectations were truly exceeded by the professionalism, support and knowledge of the area by Anne our guide Anne displayed incredible patience and good humour with us right from the offset with my email booking, rescheduling the original trip and then tailoring the ride to suit our interests and physical capabilities. I would thoroughly recommend you contact them if you are visiting the area, I am so glad that we did. Many thanks Anne
Thanks Mandy and Anne for the very interesting way (cycling) of showing us Knysna with all the information of history and facts and special stops, including drinks and snacks. Nice to see how you take care of all the guests and make a nice group out of it. Thanks very much
If you're not into major exercise then this one is for you!! Some interesting history whilst taking a slow walk at the Heads - just as Mandy and Anne said, 'pleasure at leisure'.
Fantastic way to explore Knysna in great Merida Bikes and lots of treats along the tour. My wife and I did this tour last May and it was the best way to get to know Knysna, I wish we had more time and we could extend our tour through Knysna forrests. Anne and Mandy are the best guides and will do anything for you to feel welcomed and confortable in the tour. Try not to eat before you go beacuse they will serve a lot of gourmet food and wine in the tour!
Mandy and Anne are well informed and interested guides who will tailor make a tour for young and old alike. We spent a wonderful 2 hours exploring the fynbos and beach at Buffalo Bay, learning lots of interesting facts and soaking up the beauty that is just on Knysna's doorstep. Their outings are well worth it for locals and tourists as they make the environment they are in come to life. I am already planning my next outing : )
6 locals and 2 overseas guests went on the well organised Plett/Crags Winelands cycle tour with owners Mandy and Anne on 24/2/2015. The cycle ride comprises 15kms of easy to medium off-road farm tracks and dirt roads, visiting 4 wine estates en route. You can take your own mountain bikes or hire their bikes/helmets. Peaceful farmland, forests and some new and upcoming wine estates and delicious samplings along the way with a lovely light lunch at Newstead Wine Estate make this a "must do" adventure for locals and visitors to our beautiful garden route. Keen to now experience the walks and the other bike rides on offer with Anne and Mandy.
We did the two hour walk along the beach and through the fynbos with Ann and Mandy yesterday. A lovely tour that we wouldn't have known existed without their guiding. They were both well informed and easy to get along with..keen to learn about us as well as tell us about this lovely place. We will definitely walk ( and possibly rude) with them again.
We had a well organised day with Anne and Mandy, who took us on a fantastic hike at Buffalo Bay.There was even time to swim and relax and we enjoyed magnificent views, saw delphins and learned a lot about flora in this Western Cape region. After lunch we went for a bike ride in Knysna, and had an exciting tour...
Really enjoyed a whistle stop 2 hour walking tour around Knysna with Anne. We had limited time and she provided a good mix of interesting walks, facts and culture. The walk was one we would have never found on our own and thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely would recommend getting in touch with Knysna Hike & Bike
