The tour continues north-west to the beautiful village of Franschhoek. Then it's on to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country's wine region. The final wine tasting will take place here at one of the well-known estates. (Please note that this tour may run in reverse.) The red grape variety Pinotage is unique to the area, but all the classics are represented here: Shiraz, Chardonnay and Semillon.

This was a great time. We went to three 3 different wineries and all of them were wonderful. If you're pressed for time this is a great introduction into what South Africa has to offer in terms of wine. The tour guide was lovely and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend it.

This tour was absolutely outstanding because although we didn't taste any wines, we were made so welcome and part of the experience as those who did by the wineries and Darrol our guide who was so enthusiastic and passionate about sharing his wealth of knowledge with us that when we met on later tours where he wasn't our guide, he remembered us and asked how our current tour was going! Thank you Darrol!

This was a very enjoyable day. It was well paced, relaxing and not rushed. There was plenty of time to take in the views, places of interest, wine and food. We had a small group of five people. Would highly recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We loved this tour!!! The Fairview winery (first stop) in the Paarl Valley was the best winery in our opinion. Great old world atmosphere, beautiful grounds, cheese tasting, and goats in a lighthouse... no joke!! They also stop by for a brief photo op at the prison where Nelson Mandela was released.

Franschhoek winery had the best views of the valley and mountains. Winery tasting room was very nice but the tasting was not great. We were able to spend 45 minutes in town as an added bonus.

Lastly, the town of Stellenbosch is fantastic. Had a great lunch with some locals at very cool restaurant during our 90 minutes of free time. Really loved that little town. The winery I thought was very average. The drive up with the trees lining the road was beautiful but the winery/tasting room was just average.

Overall.... loved the tour!!!!
