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!!!!
Fabulous trip. Driver/tour guide, Frisco, very knowledgeable and friendly. Only small number of us on the trip so it made for a very friendly good day out. The wine was pretty good too!!
Great tour of 3 different wine estates, with good wines to taste!
What an amazing day, well organized, extremely well presented by our tour guide/driver and a true value for the money.
The wineries visited offer many good wines and cheeses, something to match all tastes.
You will learn many things around the wines, their history and production.
Driving through this beautiful landscape, receiving a lot of additional information from the guide and the fact of tasting those delicious wines within the actual wine yards, including the trying of the different grapes, made this day truly memorable for my wife and me.
I can highly recommend this specific trip to all the wine lovers and those who look for spending a perfect day in the beautiful surroundings of Franschhoek and the surrounding valleys.
Our favorite was the visit to a small family owned wine yard, called Oak garden. The owner couple did the presentation themselves, while seated under the shadow of old oak trees overlooking the wine plantation. The owners were really nice and approachable, explaining and answering any question we could come up with around wines. Also the wines were really outstanding and I recommend to buy some at the winery as you will not be able to find them at the airports duty free unfortunately.
Rodney was a wonderful guide. Although the day was vey hot, he managed our itinerary so that we still had an enjoyable day. The wineries we visited gave us a good representation of SA wines. The staff at each place were friendly and knowledgeable.

Our driver David was fabulous. Great sense of humor and very knowledgeable.
I booked another tour with a different company and was very disappointed in the
The tour was thorough, the wineries were good and the tastings were provided in a relaxing and elegant manner. Our Guide/driver was very knowledgable and great to work with,
Tour guide was excellent, entertaining and informative. Good survey of the region. Wineries were accessible and each had unique flavor and furnishings. The stop in Franschhoek was pleasant and could have been longer to allow more browsing in the shops and galleries.
I had a great time! Our guide Rodney was very informative. He's right Franschhoek is the better town to have time in. Went to three great wineries and really had a wonderful day.
Rodney our guide was fabulous and really made our day. He was a great guy to be around and was so informative. We had the most amazing day and learnt so much about the area with a great lunch recommendation and great wine. Couldn't be better.
The 3 wineries visited were interesting and informative. Our tour guide filled in the time between the wineries with a good depth of local knowledge and some time to explore the area for ourselves. We would have liked to have spent more time exploring but as it was primarily a wine tour the short time at each location was necessary.
I enjoyed very much my day trip. Our guide was very helpful and the places we visited were first grade.
An excellent tour taking in 3 wineries and excellent scenery on the trip.Excellent value, I suggest a must do tour for visitors to Cape Town. Informative and humourous guide.
