“Quad Bike Wine Tasting ”
The activity itself was excellent. Our guide was great and the quads were great fun riding around two local wineries. The only downside was the communication in the run up to the activity. I emailed several times asking a few simple questions before getting any response over a week later. Also after driving from Cape Town and arriving on time we would also expect our activity to start on time. However would do it again as it was great fun.
