Table Mountain Scootours

Cape Town

Activity Description

A Unique way to Experience Cape Town’s Table Mountain. This 5 km track will take you on an adventurous off road track down the side of Signall Hill into Bo Kaap. The Experience continues as you are transported to Table Mountain for you final run down a single track off this world famous land mark!

We start at Table Mountain’s Lower Parking Area just off Kloof Nek Road. This is at the Table Mountain Info Office and there is plenty of safe parking.

After guests are kitted out with their helmets and gloves they get transported to the top of Signal Hill for their 1st Downhill Run. The trip is not only fun but also informative as the guides will keep you entertained with info about the area aswell!

We get picked up in Bo Kaap by the driver and then we head for the main run down Table Mountain from Dead Man’s tree all the way down to Deer Park where the driver will pick us up again and bring us back to the starting point at Lower Table Mountain.
Scooters are non motorised making this eco friendly. These Swiss designed scooters are used in the Alps during the summer season on the ski slopes when the snow is gone. All trips are guided by professional qualified guides.

Customer Reviews

On December the 14th, 2018, my son and I went with "G" on the Scootours experience in Cape Town. "G" was very friendly and helpful, and assisted my ten year old son, whilst I enjoyed both the awesome views as well as the great speed one can achieve on these scooters. After the first run, (the 2,5km Signal Hill run), my son (who didn't realize there was a second run) told me that he had just had the most fun ever, and that when we visit Cape Town again, could we do the Scootours experience again. Well, his eyes lit up, when I told him that we were about to get into the vehicle and that we were going to the Table Mountain 3,5km route next. We had so much fun, and it certainly was a great bonding experience for my son and I. I highly recommend Scootours, and would encourage businesses to bring their staff to do this, as can see that it would certainly bring a work team together socially. Well done to both "G" and the Scootours team. We will definitely be back! - Ron

REVIEW POSTED ON TRIP ADVISOR Excellent activity to do with friends and/or family First, the driver and the guide we had on the afternoon trip were very friendly and excellent. We had the chance to be the only ones on this tour so it shows that the staff delivers no matter how big or small the party is. You can benefit from their Sunday special (available a tthe moment) which allows you to bring one child with you on your scoot for free. There was enough space for my 9 year old son while it was still comfortable for me to drive the scoot with him on the 2 rides. It was a great birhday event for him ! Some older kids might be able to ride on their own depending on their strength since the scoot is a bit heavy. 1st ride was on the slopes of Lion's head going down to Bo Kaap allowing you to go down some trails to start and ending on the tar (you can go much faster then !) 2nd ride was under the Table Mountain on some gravel trails leading to Deer Park. Great guide who even offered to take some pictures and videos of us riding down the trails. Overall excellent activity that really made our day. - Stephane

This was a highlight of our trip to Cape Town. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience because it was both thrilling and an opportunity to view the city from the mountain while still being active/not sitting down. Our group of 5 ages 7 years to 60 years recommends this as a must do! - Marisa Atencio

Hi, enjoyed a trip to Cape Town in October which my son and myself rounded off with a Scootering experience. We had a great time and the guides couldn't be more helpful. I would recommend this activity for any age, I'm 61 who is fit and has an adventurous outlook. a Great way to view Cape Town. - Mark Dickens

Another way to see Cape Town and the Table Mountain. Good guides ans very pleasant :-) - Loosen Xavier
