We had a wonderful time in the South African wine country in May of 2017, thanks mainly to our guide Bruce Story. He truly understood what we were looking for, how we wanted to see things, and then figured out which wineries were for us. It seemed like everyone knew Bruce and he arranged some very special tastings for us.... More

Had an amazing day with James yesterday. Very informative and lighthearted. Since we are here on off season we had a private tour which was lovely. He gave us a variety of choices throughout the day and took us to beautiful wineries. Wine was delicious but the views were better. Lunch was traditional African fare which was tasty. Very professional... More

After reading the reviews on here I had high expectations but sadly these weren't met. The guide, Bruce, was very stressed most of the day. He is meant to have excellent wine knowledge but at every winery he left us with the staff and disappeared. Then at the third one he said that we were too late to do the... More

Found African Story through Lonely Planet, and we went with them since they felt professional and knowledgeable about the wines and region. We wanted to avoid just a booze-trip. Pros: + Visited 4 wineries and had a great lunch with vegetarian options + Picked up directly from where we were staying and dropped us off at the end + Easy... More

What a great day out! Visited four vineyards with also a stop for lunch. Well organised, informative guide, fabulous wine and cheese and introduced to brandy. Lucky enough to be with a great mix of fellow travellers. All in all, great value and thoroughly recommend!

Thanks for an awesome full day. What great value too with a lovely lunch and 4 wine and cheese tasting sessions. Well planned routes and air conditioning in the minivan which added to the fun as it's almost like the local taxis. Little touches like African music in the background were great too. I think we had Keith (or ?)... More

Jimmy was our guide (very funny guy and he gave us a lot of information about everything). I was picked up on time and we visited 4 different estates in Paarl, stellenbosch and Franschhoek (about 6-7 wines in each one, cheese and chocolate pairing). Very good lunch at La Pommerie. Great experience, great value for money! I definitely recommend this... More

Very good tour in a mini bus with participants across all nations. This tour gives a very good overview of the 3 main cape wine regions and you get to stop at 4 wineries - my favorite one being Kanonkop. In between there is a good a la carte lunch stop.

What an awesome day! I went with my partner, my parents and my adult siblings. Our guide James (jimmy) was hilarious and had just the right balance of fun facts (though he couldn't count) and music throughout the drive. We visited some stunning wineries. Lunch and cheese tasting is also great.

James was a breath of fresh air, light-hearted, fun and just what you need when the wine kicks in and the sun is shining! Needs to work on his joke selection 😂 Collection was on time and all in all it was great value for money and an interesting day with lots of "fun-filled facts". Highly recommended.
