Stellenbosch Wine Tour from Cape Town (afternoon)
On a walking tour around the city center, your guide will tell you about some of the history of this ancient city and explain how it came to be synonymous with great South African wine. Admire the abundant Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture as you walk along Stellenbosch’s leafy, tree-lined streets. The city is known locally as Eikestad, meaning ‘city of oaks,’ because of the numerous oak trees that line its secluded streets.
Continue to one of the nearby historic wine estates for a wine-tasting session with your expert guide. The exact winery visited will change depending on availability on the day of your tour, but possible estates include Charmony, KWV Wines, Merelust Estate or Uitkyk Estate. Sample local Pinotage, a red wine grape that prides itself on being South Africa’s signature variety, and learn about the Stellenbosch wine region’s Mediterranean climate and different soils that help create its highly regarded fine wine.
After an hour at the wine estate, hop back on board your luxury coach for the scenic journey back to Cape Town.

Excellent tour - made even more enjoyable as we had only our party of six and the tour guide and driver. Great value for money and a chance to see so much in one day. Loved getting two tours into one day. Super (our tour guide) was very knowledgable and friendly. A terrific day including some animal spottings as well!

This tour was great. Our guide was very flexible and accommodating to our needs since we were such a small group. We found the tour to be very informative and appreciated background information regarding the places that we were visiting.
