In 2021, my friend and I had a private wine tour and Marlene was our guide. She was excellent and I requested her for a return trip to Cape Town. She is amazing. Her knowledge of the wines: How they are made, what to look for in taste, etc. is more comprehensive than the people at the wineries. The restaurants she selected had the best views and delicious food. She is also very knowledgeable about Cape Town, Cape of Good Hope, and the entire region. From the time we booked, the company was fast to respond, and develop an itinerary based on our requests. From the time Marlene picked us up on the first day until she dropped us off on the third day, the entire experience was outstanding.

This was my second 3-day trip with Luhambo with Marlene as a guide. To start off all communication with Luhambo is flawless, fast and spot on from Cedric to Sabine and with Marlene as the guide.

I did a 3 day trip with Marlene in late 2014 and now it was time to revisit and experience these amazing 3 days again.

Marlene is a brilliant guide, she is fast and efficient and manages to squeeze in everything without it ever feeling rushed. She has brilliant humour, always with a lot of positive energy that makes you excited for the wine tour.

Marlene quickly understands your preferences and knows which places that would suit you. She will tell the staff what you need to try depending on what you like and the money you spend on this tour is to replace the years of research you would do using Platters guide and internet to find the wines and vineyards that you actually wants to visit and try, this is automatically done for you by using Luhambo and Marlene(I'm sure all guides are the same but I can only vouch for one).

The 3 day private trip is really comfortable and relaxed and you feel like you are on a wine trip with an additional friend rather than a guide as it's casual and relaxed but with full focus on the wines. You. Are being pick up and dropped off at your hotel(at a reasonable distance of course), the guesthouse where you will stay in the evenings is perfect and all restaurants are booked for you so you can just relax and everything is taken care off for you.

After these 3 days you will have a broad understanding of the area and their wines including several with wine farms closer to the water giving you a wider understanding of the differences of this soil and the winds/temps. Thelema is a great wine farm to showcase this.

If you don't know what you like you'll just say this and they will make you find out, if you know whst you like, mention this and they will keep this in mind for the trip!

I can't recommend Luhambo and Marlene with their 3 day trip enough, there is absolutely nobody that could be disappointed on the service, the wines nor the scenery!

From the time of booking through the private tour, everything was perfect. Marlene began her explanations and information from the time we left the hotel. After so many tours in Napa, I learned a lot of new information. She tailored the tour to our wine preferences. At each winery, she worked with the staff to present wines that we prefer and several new vintages that we also liked (and bought). We also viewed nearby towns worth a stay on our next visit. The company also offers other types of tours. I would recommend Luhambo Tours and Marlene for any tour they offer in the Cape Town area. You will not be disappointed.

My partner and I did a three day wine tour with Marlene as our guide and we were blown away by the whole experience. Marlene was extremely knowledgeable about wine yet made us feel so comfortable as being quite new to the "wine world". Marlene took us to some amazing, off the beaten track wine estates and we really felt like we had the inside scoop. Marlene was flexible and always made sure we were happy with the reservations, bookings etc. We lived in a wine bubble for 3 days and we didn't want to pop it. Everything was arranged, all you had to do was sit back, relax and drink wine - what more could you want! Couldn't recommend this tour enough, thankyou so much Marlene for our wonderful trip!!

We did two days of wine tours in Western Cape: a day with Cedric and a day with Marlene. I am a pesky scoundrel and I had many demands for custom elements. Cedric arranged everything to perfection. And I mean EVERYTHING. The choice of estates, the selection of wines, presentation, surprises, learning, landscapes... I could go on and on and on. The second day with Marlene was different in guiding style but equally rewarding. If I could give 6 stars I would. Heck, I'd give 7! They know the wines to the dot, they know everyone at the wine estates and everyone knows them, and they command respect. Their attitude to clientele and care for one's needs and wishes is extraordinary. They deliver a degree of satisfaction that is incredible. Long story short, we are considering doing two more wine tours more focused on single varietals with them before the end of this year. People, do your wine tours with them at your own risk as nothing you do afterwards may ever match this quality. Look at may travel map, folks - I know what I am saying here ...

We had an amazing time with Marlene! She curated four stops with our wine preferences in mind and arranged a lunch with an absolutely stunning view. We enjoyed our wine tasting almost as much as our time with Marlene in the car. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great day trip to wine country!

Based on previous reviews I booked this private tour for myself, husband and four other friends, we were not disappointed. The communication was very easy and efficient and the company flexible when we had to change our pick-up location.
A lovely guide called Cedric looked after us for the day, he made us feel special and provided us with a wealth of information about the region, the wine estates and the subject of wine in general.
He took us to a good balance of wine estates, all of which got a thumbs up, so thank you Cedric and so say all of us! We would certainly book again.

Cedric picked us up at our hotel and had an absolutely lovely day touring the Stellenbosch-Franschhoek Wine Regions. We ended up purchasing 9 bottles of wine that day. The views were absolutely breathtaking and Cedric did an amazing job explaining everything about the region, the wines, etc. He is very knowledgable and great to talk to.

The location he selected for lunch was beyond stunning.

After doing a couple of private wine tours in France and now South Africa, I could never go back to doing a 'group tour'. Cedric made the day so enjoyable for us, that we ended up going back out to 'wine country' a week or so later before we left town.

If you are in the Cape Town area visiting, I'd highly recommend choosing Luhambo Tours for a private tour.

We had Marlene for our private tour of the wine region and she was wonderful. The whole day was better than we could have imagined. She was very enjoyable and knowledgeable about the wines in the region. She seemed to know everyone at the wineries and was able to make last minute changes to the itinerary to make our schedule work best for us. She customized the tour for exactly what we wanted. Honestly perfect.

You have to book this tour and make sure you ask for Christelle!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband and I had the best time with her, and we felt like we were touring around the wineries with a celebrity because everyone knows her lol. She would walk in, and everyone would say hi to her right away! She is also insanely knowledgeable about wine and really passionate about it. I learned so much from her and can't wait to put my knowledge to use back home! I would not have changed a single thing about this tour, and we were so lucky with got paired with her. Thank you!!!!
