About
Discover the best of the South African scenery on this 9-hour wine-tasting and whale-watching tour from Cape Town. Spin along the coast to the fishing village of Hermanus with a guide and watch for right whales breaching the waves. Following an optional whale-watching cruise (own expense), delve into the pretty Hemel en Aarde valley — home to fertile vineyards. Sample South African wines on a local estate, then explore the apple-growing region of Elgin and Sir Lowry's Pass. This tour includes pickup and drop-off at your Cape Town hotel.

Michael, our driver, had a great day laid out for us. All of our tasting and tours were outstanding, especially the chocolate pairing and the local cheese paring. The restaurant he selected for us was marvelous....the four of us ordered different specialties and shared in the food experience. We also talked him into a quick stop at a local craft brewery.
