About
An exploration of the valley nestling between the Babylonstoring and Kleinrivierberge Mountain ranges. Many of the wine estate owners have set apart tracts of their land as part of a conservancy to create corridors within the region that protect the unique indigenous fynbos. The walk is interesting and varied, along single tracks and country lanes, with beautiful mountain scenery and farmland. Encompassing vineyards and orchards, horse paddocks and farms in what is aptly called the" Heaven & Earth" valley. We start at La Vierge with a chocolate & nougat wine tasting while enjoying an awesome view of the valley below. From there its a mostly downhill jaunt /wobble through a protea farm to the Frame House of Bosman Family Vineyards. The ramble continues through a horse farm , orchards and vineyards to Sumaridge Estate. Here we enjoy an excellent platter with their superb wine at the trail end.

We were very keen to try this, required details to create our plan. Communication was passive aggressive and unhelpful.

We are seasoned travelers and like to know what is on offer and structure our holidays around choices listed by companies. We usually do go on private bespoke tours overseas and are accustomed to companies having tour structures in place which one can use as a guide and then make adjustments to. In our communication we attempted to receive information like this. We were met with vague suggestions and ultimately were told that:

“I don’t think we are the 'right company' for you”

Simply for asking for structured guidance. We are surprised that a company can so miss interpret a simple request for information, and the tone of the response leads us to agree with the statement quoted.

Travel is a joyful experience and we would not feel comfortable with people who conduct themselves in such a dismissive and disrespectful way.

We certainly will not be joining them and would discourage friends who might consider this too.

The tone is set to not trust that travelers would be treated with respect and kindness.

We did the Babylonstoren Wine Walk with Ralph and Gill as our guides, I have to say that was a fantastic day with these two very interesting individuals.

They made it so interesting, so much so that we will do more walks with them.

What a fantastic experience!

We travelled to Hermanus for a girls weekend amidst the Covid 19 drama (obviously before lockdown was even announced), we really considered canceling but it was the best decision to go!

Gillian and Ralph were exceptional hosts from the initial booking. They were able to accommodate our specific requests without any complaints. Their knowledge of the area and plant life on our walks were amazing.

The whole trip was a once in a lifetime experience, we visited stunning wine farms, walked through the most beautiful surroundings and ate like absolute kings (or queens in our case). Even though our plans changed daily with new rules implemented for Covid 19, they were able to roll with this and change around things to make sure we still had a fabulous time.

I will highly recommended this trip to anyone that loves wine, lives nature and just likes experiencing the best our country has to offer.

An unforgettable experience!! The wine walk with Gillian and Ralph as our guides absolutely blew us away. Exquisite sights, amazing views and superb food .... obviously with lots and lots of wine!! So many highlights through out the weekend but our brunch tasting at Creation and the walk to Ataraxia were really special. I strongly recommend this to everyone!! An absolute must do!

I did not know what to expect but this definitely was one of 2019's highlights. All details were well planned. Gillian and Ralph were well informed and they can cook! I would love to bring my kids to enjoy the fynbos and learn more about the beautiful Hemel en Aarde valley. Thanks once again on a grand finale for 2019.
