Wonderful personalized wine tour
Phillip_J, Aug 2023
Steven was wonderful. He was so knowledgeable and informative about South African history and different areas and regions. He asked what type of wine we enjoyed and tailored our tour accordingly. He even made a reservation at an amazing restaurant for lunch. The best guide of our trip! Highly recommend him😊👍
Response from Host, Aug 2023

Wonderful Wine Experience
Kathleen_T, June 2023
Our guide Steven was incredible. He organized tastings based on our preference and the wine selection was delightful. He also setup lunch for us at La Petite Ferme which was delicious. We appreciated his extensive knowledge of Cape Town history and educating us. Would absolutely recommend this activity to others.
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you for your review. Steven is our regular guide for our private tours and he likes "to go the extra mile" Will surely pass on your kind words to Steven.
Get Fann as your guide you will not be disappointed
Reilly143, Apr 2023
This is a really great way to see some premier cape town vineyard's. Our guide Fanny was remarkable and if we come back we would nsist on having her take us wherever we went The real benefit of a tour where you get to choose your wine selection makes t much more enjoyable and the prices are very reasonable Fanny was able to get us a tasting of wines not on the regular wine selection and allowed us to compare the same wine but different vintages. It was a most memorable experience.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for the feedback. Fanny will appreciate it and many thanks for making her day also very pleasurable. Will share your review with Fanny.
Great wine tour!

No Whinning on this Wine Tour
David_T, Oct 2022
We went on the Private Full-Day Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl Wine Tour from Cape Town with Steven in October. The tour was a perfect mix of old wineries, a peaceful drive through the countryside, and history. We also stopped at the Nelson Mandela statue near Drakenstein Correctional Centre and ate at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek. We strongly recommend this tour with Steven if you have the time. He was attentive to our needs and interests and balanced in his desire to make us feel comfortable and at ease with South Africa.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you so much for the feedback. Stephen will appreciate the kind review. You are welcome to share your experience with family and friends and we will be there to oblige.
Spectacular views and beautiful wineries.

I am very pleased that Stephen could share his expertise with you. Our main focus is always to take experienced guides on board. Thank you so much for your feedback. It helps us to strive for better all the time.
Despite (or unfortunately even thanks to) COVID-19, such wonderful experience
Tatjana_D, Oct 2021
We decided to do a private wine tasting tour, which turned out to be one of the best things we have EVER done whilst on holiday. Our guide Tanya picked us up in a Mercedes (!), which gave it all an extra exclusive touch, however, we are not car snobs, so a less posh vehicle would've been abosolutely sufficient! Then we went on to two different wine tastings, one in Stellenbosch and one in Franschhoek, with four different wines each, before having an excellent lunch at Franschhoek Country House and Monneaux Restaurant and then trucking on to the third tasting in Paarl. Tanya was so knowledgeable and had a lot of background information to share! If it hadn't been for COVID, we wouldn't have booked a private tour, but it was the best thing we did! Highly recommended!
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you for the kind review. Tanya is an excellent guide and part of our regular guiding team focusing on our Private Tours. Will certainly share your review with her and I trust you will be back again to do one of our other tours with Tanya.
Fun, tasty and educational experience
Ed_D, Feb 2020
A fun tour to three wine regions and wineries. Our guide knew the best places to go. At the first winery we paired delicious wines and chocolate. At the second we sampled a wide array of wines and also tired the beautiful university town. We had an excellent lunch overlooking the valley. Finally we visited a third winery for more tastings. They allowed us to sample additional wines per our taste. A fun, tasty and educational experience.
A great experience in scenery and for wine
bruce_a, Oct 2018
This tour showed us some of the amazing countryside that exists not far from Cape Town. The scenery was amazing as were the wineries that Ivan took us to. We were so impressed allround.

Thank you for the kind response.
Truly beautiful day!
advantage_12, Sept 2018
Elegant Country Tours — both guide and driver — was the perfect due to escort us around 3 magnificent & carefully chosen wineries. We couldn’t have learned more or enjoyed the day together quite as much if not for thes two gentlemen and their wealth of knowledge. All day they were senttive to our needs.
Response from Host, May 2019
Many thanks. Appreciate your feedback.
Wonderful day and incredible guide!
Heather_M, Aug 2018
Our day in the wine region with our guide Fanny was wonderful. Fanny was the best guide possible. She shared lots of wonderful information about the region, the history of South Africa, etc. It was a delight. She even modified the tour for us a little when we really wanted to do an olive oil tasting at one of the wineries. It was a great day and one I would highly recommend. The only sad part was how expensive it is to ship wine back to the US. Enjoy it while you are there because the wines were amazing.
Response from Host, May 2019
Very happy you had a good time.
Fun and informative day
Yvette P, July 2018
We enjoyed this tour of the wine country more than we expected. Each winery that we visited gave us personalized attention and catered to our wine preferences. Our guide was helpful and friendly, and gave us a good explanation of the day as well as good insights into the history and culture of the wine country.

Bruce_B, June 2018
Last Wednesday my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of taking the private Wine Land tour with Steven Andrews. It is simply the best tour that we can remember ever having in the past 20 years that we have been traveling/sightseeing. Steven was extremely knowledgeable and informative. It was thoroughly enjoyable talking with him, learning from him about the wines and wineries, the culture and the history of this country, and getting an understanding of South Africas current status and how she arrived here. It was a completely enjoyable and pleasant way to spend the day. We know of no higher recommendation to give him. We have friends visiting Cape Town next year we will heartily recommend this tour to them. No one will have any regret on taking this tour except for its ending.
Response from Host, May 2019
Thank you so much for the inspirational review. We do our best to use excellent guides on all our tours.

We had such a WONDERFUL time on this Winelands tour! Leonard, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating! Our wine tastings overall were great...really enjoyed Anthonij Rupert and Vrede En Lust wineries and our sommeliers were excellent! We definitely will leverage this service again!

Alex_M, Feb 2018
We had booked this ahead and didnt really know what to expect, as this was the first private wine tour we had taken. We had wanted something more personal than the typical group tour and booked this particular trip because it covered some of the key wine making regions we wanted to find out more about. Our guide, Leonard, arrived punctually at 9.30 and immediately made us feel welcome, settling us into the car and outlining what we were going to be doing that day. Leonard was the perfect choice for us and we feel very privileged and lucky to have had him as our guide. He took the time to listen to what we liked and didnt like when it came to wine and gauged perfectly the choice of vineyards and their price points to suit our tastes and budget. His obvious skill and expertise allowed him to tailor the day for us to get the most out of it as we got to know each other on our way to the first vineyard. His choice of lunch venue Le Petite Ferme was inspired, we had the best lunch of our holiday that day. In fact, Id go as far as to say it was this skill and knowledge that ensured we had one of the most memorable and rewarding days of the entire trip. Take the time to stop off in Stellenbosch for a little while too, it is beautiful and well worth the stopover. If you are considering this trip, I would highly recommend it. It opened our eyes to the beauty of the region and the joys of SA wines, some of which we we would not have discovered otherwise.

Thank you so much for the positive feedback. Looking forward to your next visit.

Lynette C, Jan 2018
We had a really enjoyable Winelands tour with Leonard our guide. We visited four wineries, each located in beautiful scenic locations, and had a very enjoyable time doing the wine tastings there. Thanks to Leonard's extensive knowledge about wine, and interesting information about South Africa, we both felt that we learnt a great deal as well as having a great time. We had lunch at a beautiful restaurant called La Petite Ferme. Leonard was an excellent guide and driver, we also appreciated his courtesy and punctuality, and so we have no reservations in recommending this tour with Leonard.

Anthony_E, Jan 2018
The tour was comprehensive and our guide, Leonard, was extremely knowledgeable about wine growing and the various vineyards and vintages. He listened carefully to what we wanted from the tour and then tailored it our expectations. The pacing was perfect and his suggestions all were well received. We also included some sightseeing at our request. The car was clean and comfortable and Leonard proved to be good and safe driver, Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Thank you so much. Glad you had a good time.

Larry S, Jan 2018
We arranged this trip in order to not only sample some of the local wines for the first time, but to also get out of the city and see some of the countryside. The day long excursion was a resounding success on both counts. Our guide Shireen Endley picked us up promptly at our hotel in an upscale car and drove us to three wineries: Fairview in the Paarl area where local cheeses were paired with the wines, and Vrede en Lust in the Franschhoek area where the wines were paired with a various chocolates. We also enjoyed a delightful lunch at this second vineyard, where Shireen had worked in the past. She was the perfect guide in that she provided a rich commentary of not only the background of the wine regions, but also of the past social structure and impact of the past apartheid society and the changes that have occurred since. She introduced us to the locals at the wineries, but then allowed us to interact with these folks free of constant oversight. We also visited a Saturday market in Franschhoek, strolled through the magnificent setting of the Delaire Graff Estate, and made a final stop at another winery, which was unfortunately not available due to a private event that was being held. Nevertheless our intrepid guide furnished us with sacks of dried game meat which were to be paired with the wines. Again, it was fabulous day, thanks to Shireen -- spectacular scenery, great wines, pleasant conversation. Highly recommend this trip -- one of the best we have ever taken.
Response from Host, May 2019
Thank you. It is our objective to use excellent guides on all our tours. Will pass it on to Shireen.
