Our guide Thennis picked us up at the downtown Westin, shared van with a small group of 11 people. 4 stops plus a shopping stop in downtown Stellenbosch. Wonderful lunch at La Permmier winery. Well worth the trip.

Wine, Wine, Wine, Scenery, Lunch and an Ostrich
trishchad, Jan 2023
Our guide Phenus made everything is enjoyable from start to finish. The wineries were a wonderful varied combination offering an informal educative tasting experience. Each winery was unique in its own way. One offered delicious cheese pairing, another portrayed its long family history complete with cobwebs and dusty bottles! The included lunch was excellent featuring typical African dishes such as bobootie. We even met the winery ostrich! Thank you African Story Wine Tours for a memorable day.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Fantastic, glad that you enjoyed the day.

Hannah_T, Jan 2023
Great trip! Felt extremely tipsy by the 4th vineyard and was beautiful selection of vineyards with different charms. Great day out!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Great! Glad that you had a great day.
All together very recommendable.
Simon_B, Jan 2023
Very very nice winefarms. Different - from elegant to cute. The 4 places complimetet each other and was not too much - just right. The wine and chocolate matching was a little too simple: one piece of chocolate from the supermarket. That could be better. The short tour of Stellenbosch by car was approprate and not tiresome. the tourguide was knowledgeable and very pleasant. All together very recommendable.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Fantastic. Glad that you had a great day.
Wine, wine and more wine!! 😋
DEBORAH_M, Jan 2023
Excellent tour with a great guide. Plenty of exceptional wines to taste and gorgeous lunch. Everything we expected of the day and more. Staff at the wineries very informative and friendly. Lovely country side to view along the way.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Fantastic. Glad that you had a great day.
Amazing wine tour, won’t go wrong with this one
bbbryan14, Jan 2023
Our guide Donovan is amazing. He showed up on time, and we were ready to go. The van was semi-full, and it was decently comfortable. We visited 4 wineries, and Donovan kept the whole trip interesting by his commentaries and his knowledge of wine throughout the trip. Overall: - great guide, great trip, great selection of wineries. PRO: - lunch was included with a selection of wine from tasting - you do wine tasting under the most gorgeous landscape - enough time for you to walk around and take pictures CON: - could’ve featured more SA wines, like pinotage - a lot of wineries don’t offer shipping to foreign countries, so it kind of sucks if you really want to buy some - van could’ve been a bit more comfortable, but it’s the same issue on all the tours I’ve been on at Cape Town
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Glad that you enjoyed the day. We do ship to most counties, but some countries cost a lot for other charges, taxes etc. (Extra costs are not in South Africa, but in your own countries)
Great solo or group experience, fun, interesting, and informative!
Victoria_F, Jan 2023
I had a great time on this tour with our guide, Dominic! We learned a lot and he made the experience very inclusive which helped bring the whole group together. At the end, I made 3 new friends which made my experience in Cape Town even more fulfilling.

Our guide and driver was Dennis. He was a jewel and was so kind and informative the whole day. We LOVED FAIRVIEW wish we could have spent time strolling Stellenbosch just to see the town. A full day with a fabulous outcome. Loved the lunch !
Response from Host, Jan 2023

Compatible group for wine tasting
Jazmin_G, Dec 2022
Enjoyed the company of other guests as well as the guide's stories. Our only complaint was we had to go to a pick up point about 3 km from our hotel. We had no choice as we wanted yo do this tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for joining us. As it was a scheduled tour, we only picked up from the advertised pickup points. We do not want the other guests spending extra time on the bus. We also advertise that the pickup is from the city centre of Cape Town.
Superb Wine tour
Viv_R, Dec 2022
There were 7 of us on this tour from various countries. Our guide Thinus was really good and got us to say a bit about ourselves so we got to know a bit about our fellow tourists. He kept us informed on the journey to the first winery about wines of the Cape and places we were passing. Each of the different wineries we visited were varied and the wines supplied for tasting were different, some unique to the Cape and not exported. One of the wineries had 2 ostriches and a springbok we could see and get up close to which was a treat too. Lunch included on the tour and though the restaurant was very busy the service we received was very good. There were plenty of choices on the menu for all and the food was very good. It was also good that Thinus could eat with us too so we could ask more questions about wine, the country etc. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves South African wines and wants to know more about them and try them. What we also liked about this was the very small numbers involved and the more personal touch.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
So glad that you enjoyed the day. Saw you were with great group that day too.

Bruce the tour guide was very good the first 2 wineries on the tour were excellent .would have liked to be taken to at least one of the top wineries in the region as wine lovers.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Glad that you enjoyed it. Fairview and Murati are one of the top wineries with some world ranked wines
