Lovely drivers need help
Jan 2020
This is a great way to taste wine, and at one point I was going to give them an excellent rating. Everybody understands African time and so at 1st everybody was relaxed. However, as the day progressed, their time keeping got worse and worse, and their communication either unreliable or non existent, to the point we waited over 90mins at what should have been our penultimate wine tasting to then be told we were too late to do a last winery and then find there were 11 passengers for 10 seats for the journey back. Speaking to one of the wine tasting staff, one of the drivers left and has not been replaced. They couldn’t understand why the managers couldn’t get their hands dirty and drive their 3 vehicle. Today believe there were 20 people for 2 vehicles but with at least 3 parties. The drivers had no hope of coping with this logistic mare. They made time promises that they could not possibly keep. Looks like the wine hopper previously had great reviews and can see why. However if a 3rd driver is not employed soon, fear the tourists are going to lose patience with this mode of transport and the company will struggle
