We did a Quad tour and it was great fun. We could go there with short notice, our son (13) drove with a guide but was allowed to do much by himself - he felt save and drove carefully after a very good introduction. One Quad broke, they replaced it within 10 minutes. We enjoyed the trip very much, landscape... More

This was an end of year team building event. We were a large group and that's possibly why it felt so boring. Most of the bikes were in good condition, but some had broken indicators or gear levers which wasn't a problem because you don't need them anyway. They broke us up into 2 groups (We were about 16 people... More

Thank you for your comment we see this as a plus rather than a negative. We have an impeccable safety record and especially with larger groups as we have a fleet of 40 quad bikes. With team-building especially we can only travel the speed that the slowest quads drive especially as its risky racing into the sunset hoping all will... More

SA forest adventures is just 10mins away from Hermanus centre in a lovely location in the forest. The guides managed the difficult task of being friendly and relaxed whilst simultaneously putting us at ease, and making sure everything was perfectly safe. We went zip lining through the forest- and what a joy this was! The quad bike train takes you... More

It was our first time in Hermanus. We had a great time exploring and walking up the mountain. The locals were really warm and helpful. I can't wait to go back and see more.

The activity itself was excellent. Our guide was great and the quads were great fun riding around two local wineries. The only downside was the communication in the run up to the activity. I emailed several times asking a few simple questions before getting any response over a week later. Also after driving from Cape Town and arriving on time... More

We arrived for our ziplining experience around 30 minutes before our booking, only to be told that the group before us was late and that we would have to wait (for an unspecified time). After booking online, paying the deposit, confirming by phone the previous day, and arriving on time from Cape Town, we were very disappointed when they told... More

I would highly recommend the zip-lining from Hermanus Forest Adventures. It is carried out in a safe and proffesional manner in a beautiful landscape. The guides takes the safety very seriously, but are laid back enough the make it an enjoyable experience.

We had a great time! At first zip-lining seems to be a bit scary, but it's really great fun. Just do it and get this great experience.
