Cape Sidecar Adventures

Guided Tours

Cape Sidecar Adventures

Penguins at Boulders Beach, Cape Point and the world famous Chapman's Peak drive all rolled into one very exciting day, as you and your partner are chaffeured around the Cape Peninsula's hot spots in a vintage CJ750 sidecar. Experienced biker guides impart an informative and exhilarating experience which is just so much better than any self-drive option. In my opinion this is the best way to see Cape Town and should be made compulsory for first-time visitors!
