Our driver was very good, Knowledgeable, patient and prompt when collecting us.
Obviously there was only time to visit two wineries, but that gave us a good flavour (pun intended) of the wine region. Everything was well organised, and just what we expected.
Really cool experience! The pick-up process from the designated hotel was on time and well organized. During the ride, the driver gave a mini tour of the suburban areas as we drove through pointing out historic sites and local communities. The wine tour itself was like expected- very informed exhibitors showing off their best products from the vineyards. All in all really smooth experience that was well worth devoting a half day!
Stellenbosch is absolutely beautiful and the town was so fun to see. Our tour guide was great in explaining the history of the area and answering any questions we had. Our second winery cancelled on us as we were driving to it due to having overbooked but our tour guide immediately called and arranged a different winery and it was all set up by the time we got there, and it was absolutely beautiful so I think everything turned out for the better. Would definitely recommend this tour!
The Tour Guide was really friendly and prompt. The only thing I would suggest is the selection of the wineries. The first winery did not have a diverse selection of wine to sample since, we only got to sample 4 different wines. The Second Winery was beautiful it was called the Miranne and the wine selection was excellent. Overall it was a decent tour for the cost.
In contrast to our cape town city tour this was excellent. Guide was very professional and knowledgeable. Both vine yards were really interesting and quality of wines were excellent. Only downside was not stopping in Stellenbosch town for any time at all, would be a 5 otherwise. Have had no response whatsoever for my review of cape town city tour, no surprise really.
