I would definitely go again. We had a wonderful day. However note that if you intend to spend an hour or more at some wine estates you will not be able to visit all of them on the list, so make sure you check out the wine estates before hand and choose the ones you want to hop off at. We had lunch at Rickety bridge estate and did the wine pairing with food and it was well worth the money.

Had a wonderful time on this day-long experience. I enjoyed each of the vineyards I visited. At Zorgvliet I was able to enjoy my wine tasting with a very cute pony! I would absolutely recommend to a friend.

The staff from reception to end of day - they’re teamwork and keeping us informed fantastic. Each wine farm unique some exceeded expectation and one fell far short

Excellent wineries with easy transportation. Delicious meals and great company! We stayed on the tram but some timings were quick. Popcorn and wine pairing was delicious.

A fun experience except for the confusing schedule. it is advertised as a tram experience but you could spend most of your time on the bus. Claudette, one of the tour guides, had an attitude when I inquired about The confusing schedule and was quite rude. I later talked to another host who was very nice and also found the schedule confusing and she works there ha ha. Anyway, if you can get over all of that, you’ll have a nice time
