Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had planned a day touring the wineries when visiting SA for our honeymoon in 2015 and to this day we still talk about how fantastic our time was with the Wine Fairy. It is by far the best experience of wine tasting we have ever had (and we have been on a few!) Kate, AKA The Wine Fairy is so knowledgeable and experienced in her field, she gave us some pointers on how to taste wine properly, how to pick out the bouquets within the glass, all without any snobbery that you can find with some other wine fanatics. She genuinely cared that we had a great day, and a great experience, which believe me did, lots of laughs and fun as well as learning and appreciating the wines we were tasting.
Every vineyard we went to the team welcomed her, showing that she is well thought of within the business and that you will be taken care of. I would totally recommend her to anyone who is looking to carry out a tour in the Western Cape.
She is one in a million, a true legend, a day that will never be forgotten. One day we will be back to SA, but in the meantime, if you are ever in the UK, you know where to find me!

I have toured the Western Cape wine lands as often as possible for over a decade now; without fail, since our first outing in 2009, I have always toured with the lovely, fun, knowledgable and extremely well-connected 'Wine Fairy' Katie. Over the years I have directed friends, relatives and many, many colleagues in her direction; I have never heard anything but 100% love, adoration and satisfaction with a day out, or in some cases, a week out. And that can't just be the wine speaking, it's far too consistent! I will be back in Jan - assuming borders open - and booking Katie in is top of the Cape Town list. With day trips a breeze from CT, world class vineyards and restaurants around every corner, I really can't recommend highly enough; a trip with the Wine Fairy is up there with my favourite things to do anywhere in the world. Love you Katie, can't wait to get back! x

What’s better than one tour with the WineFairy? Several! That’s right, we’ve been blessed to be able to book multiple times with THE WineFairy and will continue to do so.

We fell in love with Katie years ago during our first visit to South Africa. She was highly recommended by a friend in the travel industry because she could not only cater to the wine lovers in our group but also our non-wine drinking travelers. By the way, those non-wine drinkers are now wine lovers thanks to Katie.

There are many reasons Katie stands out amongst everyone and every experience you’ll have in South Africa but one of the biggest is just how comfortable she makes her guests feel. If you’ve been to vineyards in other parts of the world, you know just how stuffy and snobbish the people can be some times. An experience with Katie is not that! She has this amazing ability to meet people where they’re at in terms of wine knowledge, or lack thereof, and genuinely cares that you have a customized and wonderful journey. She is well known in the region so you can be assured that you will always be well received and taken care of at each vineyard as well.

Katie’s kindness and generosity extends well beyond any experience you’ve booked with her. She always makes herself available if you need restaurant and travel recommendations during your visit or even well beyond your stay when you’re home and need a recommendation for wine.

Don’t wait to book your time with Katie and don’t be surprised when you walk away with a new forever friend!

To this day, still the best wine experience I've ever been on!

Katie met us at our cottage in Franschhoek in her VW Van and took us to three wineries. She has an incredible knowledge related to wine and deep connections in the wine community in the Western Cape. We learned a ton about wine that I had never learned during other tours or winery visits, but more importantly, it didn't feel like a class. Lots of laughs, fun, and most importantly, lots of wine!

We had a blast on a full day tour with her, she introduced us to wine makers if she happened to see them when we were there. Introduced us to the region and the history. If/when we make it back to South Africa, she will be the first call I make!

I did the Wine Fairy tour with a group of friends and we all agreed it was the best wine tour we had ever done. Her laid back yet passionate and knowledgeable approach had us actually absorbing information rather than feeling lectured to and we had a lot of laughs along the way as well. Thanks Katie for an unforgettable day!

We consider ourselves “wine tourists” as we have gone to many locations around the US and world sampling wine and buying it for our cellar. When we decided to go to South Africa for safari, we had to add a few days in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek area. We’ve had great success in other countries hiring someone to take us around, so we starting researching options. My other half found the wine fairy online and we booked her well in advance. Prior to our visit, she asked us for a bit of information about our tastes and preferences, so we sent her some fairly detailed information. The day of our tour, she picked us up in a lovely vehicle, and whisked us away to 4 different wine farms and a stop for lunch. We were very pleased with our experience. Kate was very personable, knowledgeable and just a joy to spend the day. She knows everyone at the wineries and seems well respected. We learned a lot from her about SA wines and the history of the area, along with some new wine tasting tips! Highly recommend booking the Wine Fairy for the day!

Our Tour Organizer's Rhino, recommended that we do a day of wine touring with The WineFairy, Katy. We are so glad that they did. It was an amazing day and we thoroughly enjoyed learning about the wine region, visiting some wonderful wineries and tasting a great variety of wines from the region. My partner and I have done a lot of wine tastings and tours over the years all around the world, but, we were impressed with Katy's knowledge and her easy going nature to help us even better understand the various components of each wine. Even though she is a professional wine taster and qualified judge, she is not intimidating and makes finding your favorite wines fun. It's quite clear that she is well respected by the wineries and it is nice to receive the special treatment when we visited the various wine rooms. You will not be dissapointed. We highly recommend hiring Katy to take you around. Wine in fantastic too!!

My wife and I toured the South African wine country with Katie and had a blast! Shes charming, horrendously funny and totally knowledgeable about wines and ways to assess them. We learned many things from Katie, shared great wine tastings at numerous winery's and our lunch together at Delaire Graff was exceptional. She wasn't pressuring us to make any purchases, but certainly exposed us to SA wines that are unavailable in the States - couldn't resist buying some - LOL!

Can't wait to go back and spend another day or two with Katie

Katie (the Wine Fairy) gave us two incredible days in the Winelands. Her deep knowledge, appreciation and passion for wines was infectious. This allowed my wife and I to get a fabulous education as to the breadth and depth of South African wines. The vineyard tastings she selected for us were each so unique and wonderful. She (and, by association, my wife and I) were so warmly greeted at each stop – as her reputation is impeccable. I highly recommend Katie for wine touring – she is the best!!
