My husband and I took a one day trip around the Cape Peninsula on a classic Honda Africa Twin. It was an incredible day, with plenty of stops at amazing view points including the Cape of Good Hope. Andrew was a great guide - he helped us find whales in the bay near Simon's Town, told us loads of interesting info about the area and was generally good fun to hang out with. The bike was spot on and we enjoyed it so much, my husband is considering buying one. We'd love to return sometime and take one of the longer trips!

We just recently did a 3 day tour organised and led by Andrew and had greatest time. Andrew's knowledge of the region, the places, the geography and the roads made for such an enjoyable trip. I highly recommend a tour with Andrew to everyone and we hope to get back to SA in the not too distant future to do another trip with him!

We did two one-day tours with Andrew and it was amazing to say the least! He has a lot of local knowledge so we got to know a lot about Cape Town and South Africa. On our first day-trip to Cape Point (~180km) we also drove through Cape Town and around Table Mountain and Signal Hill. Our second tour was around False Bay to Hermanus and back via Theewaterskloof through the mountains (~360km). Both tours I can highly recommend! To get the ultimate experience follow his recommendations! If you're vising Cape Town and like Motorbiking, a tour with Ride Down South is a must for you!

We've made some good friends on our two-wheeled African adventures. Read what they have to say here or click on the Tripadvisor link to see our reviews there.

As a long time tour organiser and operator, this was actually the first time I’ve ever gone on a tour as a customer and you far exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t just the riding or the bikes, it was the whole package, the choices of accommodation, the great meals but above all the enthusiasm and willingness to go that extra mile (or 100 km) that shone through in you and your team.

I just rode from Victoria Falls to Cape Town with Ride Down South and couldn't be happier. Andrew and Greg aren't just great guides, they're also just really great people -- a joy to ride with and also a joy to hang out with. They ran my 22 day tour without a hitch and made sure we stopped at all the best secret spots. And the bikes we rode for absolutely perfect for the trip. Africa Twin! I'm a fan for life. When I booked this motorcycle trip I wanted the trip of a lifetime. I got it and then some. Wow. What an experience!

Thank you Andrew for an amazing experience.
I can't imagine going with anyone else on a trip like we did.
You listened to our needs and crafted a tour to suit our group of 4 west coast Canadians and 1 American. You gave great leadership and service all the way.
The African people were truly amazing with their friendly and helpful manner, it is an easy place to feel safe and comfortable in.
Ending the tour in Victoria Falls was a perfect finale to an amazing trip, on which, we saw and experienced so much. My skills and confidence grew and I am a much better rider now, than when I started.


Thank you Andrew for the great job and I will refer others to you without hesitation. I hope to get back to Africa to ride a few dirt roads with you again. Truly, Brian.

Recently, a brief telephone conversation resulted in an unforgettable four days of biking through breath-takingly beautiful scenery and daily excursions which left us wishing that we’d booked double the time. We had considered navigating the trip ourselves and are so glad we didn’t. We would have missed out on so many personal insights, hidden gems and juicy tit-bits of local folklore.
Andrew custom-built our trip to suit our timeframe, riding and sight-seeing preferences, bending over backwards in ensuring our every expectation was met. We asked for a “mixed bag” regarding the ride itself and were certainly not disappointed! We were awe-struck by the scenic routes; delighted by the comfort and quaintness of the hand-picked accommodations and thoroughly enjoyed Andrew’s professional, yet personable guidance through landscapes clearly dear to his heart. We cannot speak more highly of him as a knowledgeable, experienced guide and gracious host. In saying good-bye, we felt a little bereft and are already eagerly planning our next trip.
