Steven was a top notch guide - very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. We had excellent weather and the drive to our first stop at Stellenbosch was quick and easy. Surprised by the dry white wines at Mulderbosch Winery. Excellent tastings! Enjoyed the free time to walk around the small town of Stellenbosch and do some window shopping before our next stop in Franshoek. The area here was so scenic and lovely. Stop 2 was Rickety Bridge Winery, where we enjoyed the classic Pinotage and other reds from this region. Then on to lunch at the romantic La Petite Ferme - superb, excellent food and service with breathtaking views. From here we drove to Paarl to our final winery called Fairview, which has its own goats on site so they provide and cheese and wine pairing. The wines here were unique - with different imported grape varietals producing award winning blends. We enjoyed their Shiraz and bought a bottle to take home. (Happy to report it successfully survived the flight in our checked luggage!) All in all we had a wonderful day in the Cape Winelands! The private tour led by Steven was great, car ride was comfortable, pick up/drop off from hotel could not be easier. Thank you!

Fanny was very punctual and picked us up from our Guest House in Cape Town. She was an excellent guide, very informative as we drove to the Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl areas. We visited 3 wineries and her historical knowledge as well as basic information helped enhance the experience. The lunch at La Petite Ferme had a breathtaking view of the valley and mountains. We then stopped for a cup of coffee at the Fairview restaurant. At Fairview the last wine tasting was pared with cheese. I can’t recommend this Countryside experience enough with Fanny as your guide. 5 stars for sure!

We decided to do a private wine tasting tour, which turned out to be one of the best things we have EVER done whilst on holiday. Our guide Tanya picked us up in a Mercedes (!), which gave it all an extra exclusive touch, however, we are not car snobs, so a less posh vehicle would've been abosolutely sufficient! Then we went on to two different wine tastings, one in Stellenbosch and one in Franschhoek, with four different wines each, before having an excellent lunch at Franschhoek Country House and Monneaux Restaurant and then trucking on to the third tasting in Paarl. Tanya was so knowledgeable and had a lot of background information to share! If it hadn't been for COVID, we wouldn't have booked a private tour, but it was the best thing we did! Highly recommended!

We had booked this ahead and didnt really know what to expect, as this was the first private wine tour we had taken. We had wanted something more personal than the typical group tour and booked this particular trip because it covered some of the key wine making regions we wanted to find out more about.

Our guide, Leonard, arrived punctually at 9.30 and immediately made us feel welcome, settling us into the car and outlining what we were going to be doing that day. Leonard was the perfect choice for us and we feel very privileged and lucky to have had him as our guide. He took the time to listen to what we liked and didnt like when it came to wine and gauged perfectly the choice of vineyards and their price points to suit our tastes and budget. His obvious skill and expertise allowed him to tailor the day for us to get the most out of it as we got to know each other on our way to the first vineyard. His choice of lunch venue Le Petite Ferme was inspired, we had the best lunch of our holiday that day. In fact, Id go as far as to say it was this skill and knowledge that ensured we had one of the most memorable and rewarding days of the entire trip.

Take the time to stop off in Stellenbosch for a little while too, it is beautiful and well worth the stopover.

If you are considering this trip, I would highly recommend it. It opened our eyes to the beauty of the region and the joys of SA wines, some of which we we would not have discovered otherwise.
