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!
