When cycling enthusiast Kevin contacted us regarding our popular Cape Town Cycle Tour trips, he had already secured his entry into the world’s largest timed cycle race through the ballot, but he was looking for a comprehensive travel package including flights, accommodations, and a couple of cycle training tours that would get him in perfect shape for race day.
After considering the numerous tours we had to offer, Kevin went with our popular Mother City Spin package, but as he wanted to stay in South Africa for longer than 7-nights, we tailored the tour to meet his exact requirements.
Kevin’s tailor-made Cape Argus Itinerary included direct flights from London, bike transportation, 10-nights and the über trendy Hyde All-Suites Hotel, airport transfers, 2 cycle training tours, invites to our pre-race briefing and fabulous after-party, and a bonus cycle tour on the Monday following the Cycle Tour after Cape Town’s most iconic event didn’t go to plan…
Here’s what Kevin had to say about his trip with Equatours:
What did you think of The Hyde Hotel?
The hotel and staff are excellent. The rooms were modern, clean and spacious. The staff were always friendly, cheerful and helpful. And I really enjoyed my stay there.
On a scale of 1 – 10, how would you rate our cycle training tours?
10 – The routes were varied, carefully planned and well supported. Martin was great at looking after us and was really friendly too. Special mention has to go to Ingo for leading the extra ride the day after the Argus was cancelled.
Which was your favourite cycle training tour (and why)?
The ride out to the Cape peninsula and back, going over Chapman’s Peak. The whole day was amazing – from the spectacular views to the great lunch venue and the cold beer at the end. That said, the other rides were almost as memorable and I’d put them all near the top of my top 10 ever.
Were you satisfied with the Kalas Cycle Jersey provided by Equatours?
Yes. It was a great fit while the material quality and design were good too.
Do you think your trip offered good value for money?
Very much so.
Is there anything else we could have done to make your trip more enjoyable (please feel free to add any tips, suggestions, recommendations)?
I can’t think of anything. I thought you both did an excellent job of ensuring everything went smoothly and enjoyably, which is why I’ll be booking again for next year.
Any final words…?
Wendy and Ingo did an excellent job of ensuring I had a fantastic time and I can’t speak highly enough of their efforts to make my cycling holiday unforgettable.
We are already planning Kevin’s trip for next year, and look forward to cycling South Africa with him again in 2018!
