More About This Tour
Blending critical cultural sites and delicious local cuisine, our City Bites and Bikes tour is beloved by foodies and cyclists alike. Get to know South Africa better through two means that show its character: its food and its culture. The best part of all, we’ll be exploring by bike. Enjoy a complete sensory experience while zipping across the roads of Cape Town and take a break from the busyness of life. The 12 km journey introduces you to South African cuisine, a blend of dishes influenced by the indigenous inhabitants, Malaysians, Indians, the French, and the Dutch. Guests can sample cultural food at three stops. From Boerewors (traditional South African sausage) to Bunny Chow, South African cuisine easily excites any palate. The choices for desserts won’t disappoint either. Koeksisters, vetkoek, and malva pudding are some favourites of international visitors and locals. On a bicycle food tour in Cape Town, guests embark on a cultural experience while sampling the local cuisine.
