Customer Reviews

Had a fantastic time driving the AC Cobra around for 4 hours. The sound it makes is incredible and certainly turns heads. It was a great experience to drive one of my dream cars! We took the lovely scenic Chapmans Peak Road with amazing views and made the most of the 4 hours. Great value for money for this experience and would highly recommend this to anyone, we would do again if we revisit Cape Town. - Anita

What a great experience: driving Chappies in an open sports-car -- so different in the very best way. 4 hrs was exactly right for an easy tour around the northern part of the peninsula, coming back along the M3 from Ou Kaapse Weg and stopping in Constantia for brunch. The staff at Cobra were very efficient and friendly -- made the whole thing so easy! Thanks, Davkd - David

This was a surprise gift for my husband who celebrated his birthday on Monday the 16th of August. The service was great, the weather played along and we had a fun afternoon with the Cobra with lots of people hooting at us along the way. Stopped in Hout Bay and enjoyed the drive through Camps Bay, over Chapman's Peak and Ou Kaapse Weg. He was really thrilled and it was definitely an awesome gift that he wasn't expecting ? - Fawn

Woweeee. What an absolutely incredible experience. Jackie was just outstanding from start to finish. We loved ever minute of our time, we now want to bye our own! We highly recommend the Cobra Experience. We have friends coming from overseas in summer and we have already told them this is the BEST way to see Cape Town. Thank you for giving us extra time, it was so kind and a wonderful gift for my fiance birthday. Thanks so much. - Jade

Amazing experience, Matt and his team are really nice! Thanks a lot! - Marc
