Twee hele mooie dagen gehad met Jaco. Alles werd geregeld, van fiets tot aan sportrepen.👌 Een deel van de routes van Stellenbosch en omgeving ontdekt, en ook nog wat stukken van de cape epic meegepakt. 😎 Hele leuke ervaring, echt een aanrader! 🇿🇦

Jaco was a pleasant and awesome guide to have on a trip through Stellenbosch! He made it feel more like a day trip with a good friend and had great recommendations for places to stop along the journey. From thinking about the perfect breakfast spot to begin the journey to having a flexible itinerary and passing through interesting towns and pointing out landmarks, he made us feel like we got a full experience! Jaco was also accommodating, rearranging other things during his week to fit us in. I look forward to visiting South Africa again one day so I can see more with Jaco!

Jaco knows all the best routes, views and lunch spots in the region, we felt very safe and would 100% recommend having him as your guide.
Had an absolute blast on a 3-day biking escapade with Jaco. Jaco’s intuitive understanding of my skill level, despite never having met me before, ensured the perfect balance of challenge and enjoyment. Top-notch experience!
