The entire tour was great! We visited 3 beautiful wineries that had good wines and conducted an informative wine tasting with great presentations. We had lunch at Franschhoek Winery where we had an amazing lunch, the best food we had eaten in SA. The Guides were very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this tour because it was well planned and very reasonable in price.

Best experience in CTN for me.
Thandeka_M, May 2023
I am a woman, was alone on a solo trip in CTN. I met interesting people and a few other people who made this trip worth while. The Tour Guide is excellent,you won’t be drunk to a point of being incoherent. They make you walk and eat so that the alcohol doesn’t get in the way of your tour. Learnt so much from this. Bring cash for a tip for the staff at the end of your tour. I didn’t bring any, but would have tipped if I had any cash on me.

Beautiful and informative wine country trip
Patty_S, May 2023
George was a knowledgeable and interesting guide. The tastings were fun and the scenery e route was breathtaking. My only suggestion would be that we were given some independent time to walk around Stellenbosch, since we had quite a long time just sitting and waiting for our lunch outside Franschhoek. We could have called in our orders beforehand.
Good Tour for Wine Drinkers and Non-Drinkers
Cornelia_D, May 2023
The tour used the City Sightseeing buses which were very comfortable and gave us a great view as we drove though the beautiful countryside. One of us is a wine drinker and the other is not, but we both enjoyed the tour. We learned a lot about wine making and the history of wine in South Africa. The tour guide Rico (sp?) and his team were excellent in providing commentary and keeping us on schedule. The 3 wineries chosen (Stellenbosch, Franshoek & Paarl) gave us a good cross section of wines and wine making in the region. Our favorite was Paarl because of the beautiful secluded setting and the chocolates!
Highly recommended

Kelsey_M, Apr 2023
Guide was incredible-gave information we couldn’t otherwise have known related very specific to wine and the region, the people of SA, and much more. They were prompt with pickup which was convenient and easy. The tour did take longer than expected by about 1.5 hours.
Best Wine Tour in Cape Town
Shari_L, Apr 2023
Best decision I made in Cape Town. This wine tour was amazing. We fit three regions in a day and didn't feel rushed at all. The bus was clean and our tour guide Charles was extremely knowledgeable and patient. The wineries were beautiful. The locations and wine selections we perfect.

Tore_B, Mar 2023
George, the guide, full of anekdotes and knowledge, he gave us an amusing and interesting day in the wineyards near CPT. The winetasting was a first class experience.
Christopher_F, Mar 2023
Really enjoyed this tour for the second time. I would recommend going back to allowing some time in the shopping area of Stellenbosch. The first time we did the tour in 2019, the guide gave us an hour to walk around that area and do some shopping. A few people yesterday left the tour after the last winery to go back to do some shopping.
Thank you Louis

Great day trip through beautiful countryside
Martin_P, Feb 2023
First off, we don't like wine, but that didn't stop us having an enjoyable day out. It was interesting to see the wine being processed and bottled in the Simonsig winery, and to enjoy the beautiful surrounding scenery. We also had a short walk through part of Stellenbosch, followed by a trip to the main street in Rhebokskloof, both beautiful little towns. The scenery continued to delight throughout the day, and if you are a wine buff, I'm sure you would have got even more out of the day. Altogether a great day out.
