Our private tour was arranged through hotspots2c. Based on other reviews, we requested Eon for this and for a Cape Town city tour to take us to the wine areas of Stellenbosch and Franshoek. The trip was first rate, sampling numerous wines, mostly red, as thats our preference, along with cheeses and chocolates. Try the Pinotage! The trip was packed full of fun and interesting places and things to do, but Eon also would share little tidbits of info of the areas we went to, he would stop off at overlooks for fantastic photo ops. We mentioned to Eon that we had seen the movie A Long Walk to Freedom about Nelson Mandelas journey before, during and after his release from prison, so Eon brought us over to where Mandelas release and walk with his wife, Winnie, took place, since we were in the area!
When in Cape Town you must ask for Eon, a great guy, very knowledgeable, informative, and accommodating.
This was a fantastic experience all around! Our guide, Andrew, was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to wineries that were beautiful and which served extraordinary wines. The pace was good and the attention paid by the staff at each location was warm and completely inviting. Highly recommended!
Gerard was our tour guide and he was amazing! He gave us as much time as we wanted at each winery and pointed out some of the best restaurants to eat at for lunch. Highly recommend it!
Excellent tour. The driver/tour guide, Andrew, was exceptional.
Wine-Tasting Tour was really good. Went with Les Frank who is a wine connoisseur. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience, good weather too. Our guide was fun, flexible and enhanced the experience even more. Many thanks.
Eon Rabe from Hotspot Toursbooked online via Viatorgave us a splendid tour of a carefully selected range of wineries in the Stellenbosch region. He tailored a thoughtful,well-paced,knowledgeable and entertaining tour for us. We had a fabulous day and thoroughly recommend him as a guide.

Great tour, wonderful vinyards, delicious wine, a great fun guide who was very knowledgable. My friends and I loved it.
We had an absolutely fantasitic day, the trip was fine tuned to our needs and our guide Lisel was knowledgeable and very easy going. I would definately recommend this tour!
this Tour was fantastic, Our guide henry Was very helpful from pick up to drop off, and did not rush us around, Views and sites were out of this world, lunch was all organised for us at our request, all we had to do was turn up, eat and pay for our food and drink, wine tasting was also very good, Highly recommend this tour.
On a scorchingly hot day we headed out with our excellent guide/driver Eon to Stellenbosch, where we looked round the Historic Houses Museum highly recommended, and a great little shop called 'Oom Sammie de Winkell' or something like that!.
We then continued on to Fairview winery near Paarl for a 'Conoisseur' cheese and wine tasting, which was fantastic, and along with Table mountain and Cape Point, a highlight of our time in Cape Town. Both cheese and wine tastings had high 'Hit- counts', and we ended up buying two cases to be delivered their Grenache and Swartland wines are very special.
Eon had then booked us lunch at another winery, 'Dieux Donne', with a great menu, and wonderful views of the mountains surrounding Franchoek. After a delicious lunch and an acceptable wine-tasting, we drove on to our final wine-tasting in the beautiful winery of Babylonstoren. By then the heat was intense and we were grateful to do the tasting in a modern A/C glass building, with an enjoyable selection of wines.
Eon drove us safely home, and so ended a very special and successful 'tailor-made' tour -thanks to Eon's flexibility, desire to make our tour an enjoyable one, and his care and concern for my mother, who had mobility problems. My advice - pay extra if you can and take the private tour with Eon!
