Scootours offer a unique way to Experience Cape Town’s Table Mountain and its breath-taking views in a fun and active way.
Scootours Cape Town is a downhill scooter tour company that uses Monster Mountain Scooters to freewheel down the slopes of Signal Hill and Table Mountain into the city below. These awesome scooters were originally designed by the Swiss for use in the Alps during the summer season when the ski slopes have no snow. Therefore each scooter is equipped with two large, wide wheels and a solid frame making them steady and stable. Being non-motorised, the push bikes are eco-friendly and are purely driven by gravity. They are easier to control than they look!
The tour itself consists of two tracks, both perfect for scooting downhill. The first track will take you on an adventurous route down the side of Signal Hill into Bo Kaap. The Experience then continues as you are transported to Table Mountain for you final run down a single track off this world famous land mark!
You are guided by professional, experienced and qualified guides, of who are extremely knowledgeable of Cape Town. So don’t be afraid to ask them a question or two on your way down. The tour lasts for around 1.5 – 2 hours, depending on how fast your group is.
Try not to worry about capturing every moment of the experience on your camera. Simply enjoy the tour and let the tour guides do their thing with their snazzy cameras. You can purchase all the photos taken that day for an extra small fee. Scootours Cape Town will share the image file with you via email so you will have countless copies of your Scootour experience.
Prepare for all weathers. Cape Town’s weather is often changeable so be prepared and take sunscreen and a jacket with you. You can leave in the van when you are not using so you don’t have to worry about taking it around with you during your ride.
