Overview

Skip the crowded group tours and enjoy a more personalized experience of some of South Africa’s best wineries on a private tour of the Cape Winelands. Visit four wineries in Paarl, Stellenbosch, and Franschhoek to sample their wines—as well as cheese and chocolate—and learn about how the combination of climate, soil, and grape varietals create the unique wines for which South Africa is known.
  • Private, personalized, tour to Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, and Paarl wine regions from Cape Town
  • Tour four prestigious wine estates including Fairview and Boschendal
  • Sample chocolate and cheese as well as South African wine varieties
  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off from your Cape Town hotel, airport, or port
Begin your day with pickup at your Cape Town hotel in a luxury minivan and head straight for the famous Stellenbosch wine region. The climate is akin to the Mediterranean, a longtime wine-growing region.

Next, head for the nearby Paarl wine region to visit the Fairview Wine Estate for wine tasting session. Along with the winery’s well-known white wines, nibble on delicious cheeses.

Stop for lunch in Franschhoek, internationally famous for its gourmet dining options. Get recommendations from your private guide for where to get something to eat (own expense) from the many restaurants and cafes in the pretty town.

After your lunch break, visit the La Motte or Haute Cabriere wine estate outside Franschhoek in the Helderberg Mountains. Take in the splendid views from the winery while you taste their wines and learn how growing wine grapes in the mountains differs from growing them down in the valley.

The final winery visit of the day is at Boschendal, one of the oldest wine estates in the country, dating back to the 1600s. From the outside, the winery may look traditional and old-fashioned, but when you see the cellars you’ll notice they are state-of-the-art. Enjoy your tour’s last wine tasting among the barrels in the tasting room or outside under the trees if the weather permits. Before getting back in the minivan for the relaxing drive back to Cape Town. Arrive in the early evening.

The last stop on your tour is the Muratie wine estate, a local favorite with lots of rustic charm, where you’ll end with something sweet. At Muratie, sample dessert wine and locally-made chocolate.

Perfect Addition to Our Honeymoon

The private winelands tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Liezel, shared so many cool pieces of information throughout the day and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. The wineries themselves were so beautiful. We loved every one of the four we visited. We were also huge fans of the fact that one included a cheese pairing with its tasing, while another included a chocolate pairing. We'd recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town - the experience is a must. We were sad to leave when our trip was over, but were happy to be bringing back a few bottles of excellent wine. Thanks for a wonderful day, Liezel!

JP was a superb tour guide with excellent insights into the wines as well as deep history of the area. He picked us up on time in a shiny new van and expertly drove us to our destinations, which Clare had carefully adjusted to our requests in advance. He kept us on schedule without pressure and returned us safely home at the end of a wonderful day. We highly recommend this tour company when visiting Cape Town.

We were 4 adults on a private full day tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable about all things South Africa and the 4 wineries he selected were beautiful and very different. We loved them all. His lunch suggestion in Franschhoek was great too. It’s a fantastic day and definitely worth choosing a PRIVATE tour.

Our guide Liezel was so cool. Wine estates could’ve been a little more famous/interesting. But hey! The best was saved for last.

Hi AnitaS1, thanks for taking time to review and rate your Winelands tour with Liezel as your tour guide. So many places to see and so many tastes to experience... and as this private tour runs exclusively for you and your group, guests are welcome to tailor the wine estates to visit during the day. If you are ever back in Cape Town, do let us know as there are plenty of more places to see and more wine to drink :) Keep'on adventuring - from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

Leizel made our experience one to remember. She was more than accommodating to us and our kids on the tour and her knowledge of the area made for a relaxing, but once-in-a-lifetime memory for our entire family. Thank you!

We had an excellent guide who was able to let us personalize out trip and spend the time doing what we enjoyed rather than rushing from place to place just to check them off. Consequently we awere able to tour the Stellenbosch Museum and really spend some quality time there - it is fascinating. We also enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Coopmanhuijs Hotel which has excellent food and service.

We were met by Andrew at the cruise terminal in Cape Town in a new people carrier. Andrew was very knowledgable and tailored the trip to meet our needs. He gave us time for lunch at a restaurant, which he booked, then with time for shopping. His knowledge on wines, vines and production was superb. We spent a full day in his company, no rush to get us back. Would highly recommend this trip and Andrew. A memorable day in a beautiful part of South Africa.

Wonderful time we had!!! Our tour driver was very nice and attentive and did everything he could to help us, because we did the tour on Dec 24th and not all wineries were opened. But we could go to wonderful wineries and taste wonderful wines. Don't miss it!!!
