Touring three wine producing areas around Cape Town was fantastic. Cornelia, our guide, was amazing. She was cheerful, enthusiastic, and a wealth. of information. She accommodate our request to visit Fairview, which produces amazing goat cheese along with the wine. The tasting room at Fairview was top notch. Marianne vineyards produces amazing wines, the Pinotage was delicious. And pairing the wines with local "biltong" (jerky) was a treat. Overall an excellent tour, a must for those curious about wines, and seeing a bit of the countryside of Cape Town.

TRUST THE OTHER LOW RATINGS. I was in SA for a month and through all the ups and downs this is the only experience I would actively advise other travelers to avoid. The routes were poorly planned, the guide did not book our tickets for the tram in advance and we arrived to discover they were sold out for the time we were supposed to be departing (delaying and short-cutting the rest of our afternoon). I think this could hardly be described as a tour of wine country when the tram ride was 10 minutes and only 3 wine farms are included. For any travelers concerned about having to plan out the afternoon or hoping to avoid someone in your group being forced to sit out on the tastings for the sake of designated driving, do yourself a favor and either drive yourself or Uber to the tram station (or find a different tour). I guarantee the cost of an Uber from even an hour+ away combined with the cost of tastings is still infinitely less than you would pay for this (and you won’t have to risk your guide rushing you through tastings/ not booking lunch or tram reservations). And if you read this whole review and attribute my experience to a bad guide, you’re partly correct, but in my experience it was obvious the management and planning overall was also to blame

Great tour with nice wines but the 3rd winery was a bit of a let down after the first two were so good - so a half day tour would have done it.

We had an experienced guide Rob who made the trip experience great. Plenty of local information shared making it much more than a wine 🍷 tasting. Best experience was at the Marianne winery with 2006 wine Floreal.
