The above journey represented 2 great days with a wonderful couple on a fabulous tour. The weather payed ball even though it was Winter and together we had a splendid journey travelling through the Cape Peninsula and Cape Winelands region. Ada and Steve we fantastic, friendly company and together we all enjoyed our ride through the Cape Town region. I learnt much from Ada and Steve and I hope they gained similarly from me. Wonderful 2 days.
