Hi had a really great three day/two night western cape tour with RETZA. The service was great, from booking and getting information about the tour, to collecting the bike and hitting the road. My Guide Kevin, was excellent and his knowledge of the area and leading gave for a good trip. He even changed parts to include more gravel roads and a river crossing along with several passes, the BAIN KLOOF PASS 25km of twisty roads. (watch out for Leopards road sign was a first) The hotels selected were great, especially in the wine area of Groenberg. The bikes Royal Enfield Classic 500cc performed excellent, only an issue was a loose mirror, very common, but with a road side repair (black electrical tape), we carried on without any other issues for the trip. Wherever we stopped the bikes the stars of the trip, with lots of comments from people saying how great they looked, kitted out with the saddlebags. Very 1940's look. For a longer trip, I think a slightly larger motorcycle would be better for the motorways, howver, looking forward to trying the new Himalayan 450, to how this performs.
