The tour was an unforgettable experience throughout the day. With insightful and rich history delivered by our great tour guide Remi. Remi’s relocation of dates and facts were amazing. Remi is also very resourceful as I was bursting for the toilet and he found one within 5 mins, thanks Remi!

Thank you for the wonderful experience Remmy. I personally think you are one of the best if not the best. The tour was blissful and very enchanting. We will certainly tour with you again. We could not get enough of the tour and the views from the Winneries as well as the Robern Island history wich was just fascinating to hear.

The surroundings are so calm and refreshing. Good place to heal and reconnect with family. Had a nice time with my family and the children enjoyed watching the yellow fish in the water. Thanks to the tour guide who knew exactly the key points of the place and for taking wonderful pictures for us.

Remmy was on time, flexible, never rushed us even if we were over an hour passed our tour end time (I hope he appreciated our extra gratuity for his service and time). Remmy was courteous and made sure we made all planned activities. Fairview and Babylonstern wineries were fantastic and pleasant. We did go end of Winter start of Spring so that probably played a role in our very pleasant winery experience. Remmy offers more tours, wish we had more time.
