“Beautiful wine tasting experience with a charming host”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Antoinette of Camino Tours was charming and knowledgeable about the region and its vineyards. We had a fine day visiting vineyards, tasting interesting wines and sharing the company of new found friends. I made my booking at the last minute and joined a group who had some special requests which Antoinette fulfilled in her charming and efficient style. I enjoyed her company very much and recommend her small tour company to anyone wanting to have a day out in the midst of beautiful country. In the evening she organised transport for me and my wife to my birthday dinner at a lovely restaurant outside of Stellenbosch.
Thank you Antoinette and Camino Tours for a great day.

Dear Gordon, thank you for making time to write this delightful review. Our lunch at La Petite Ferme was great on a stunning winter's day and the chocolate and wine pairing at Waterford was a perfect ending to the day. Let me know when you taste that special bottle of wine from De Meye please. Looking forward to hopefully see you back in Stellenbosch one day. Antoinette

“What a Great Way to spend the day!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We had an Absolutely Fabulous time with Louis from Camino Tours in May, dipping into lots of different wines at a variety of truly quaint & beautiful wineries in Stellenbosch. Louis is very knowledgeable & has a relaxed open style, he really looked after us & the wine we bought by parking the vehicle in the shade so it wouldn't cook in the hot sun-a very personal touch. He made sure everyone got to try the type of grapes that they preferred too & kept a really close eye on the wines that were being offered to us to try, sending it back it was of questionable quality; real attention to detail.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & had a balI, it was over too soon...I should mention Antoinette too, who was my first point of contact, very professional, approachable & efficient in our communications & tailored made our day to suit our tastes. A shame we didn't meet her too by the sounds of it from other reviews...There is always next time!
Thanks for a Stella Day Out.

Dear May client. Thank you for writing a review after your holiday in SA.. I am sorry to hear about your experience at the lunch farm where the one wine was faulty / off. I am glad Louis was eating with you to agree with your husband to send it back. Good to hear the rest of your day was excellent ant that you found a wine for everybody on route. Hopefully next time we will be able to meet and I can be your guide. Please remember we do 9 different types of wine tours - so there is more to come back for in different regions. All the best. Antoinette

“STUNNING Stellenbosch Experience!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

A HUGE thank you to Antoinette of Camino Tours for making our Stellenbosch experience beyond memorable. We contacted Camino Tours last minute and Antoinette generously adjusted her plans to accommodate our schedule. Within hours we were off and touring gorgeous wine farms that were hand picked according our tastes and interests. We spent 2 wonderful days with Antoinette who toured us around Stellenbosch, showed us amazing wine farms, and helped us to select the best restaurants and pubs. We couldn't have been happier! Antoinette's attention to detail, accommodating nature, and extensive knowledge of Stellenbosch could not have been matched. We are very much looking forward to our next trip and another great time with Antoinette!

Hi Christy! Thank you for choosing Camino from the Stellenbosch Booklet! I am so glad we met and had a great 2 days of wine tasting, dinner and laughter. Next time we must definitely play a round of golf and we will book and plan everything for you. Hope time flies for you to see Toben quickly again. Thank you again for the wonderful dinner in Husser Grill Stellenbosch.

Dear Linse. Great to hear from you almost a year after your tour! thank you for the review! How are you doing? If I think back of your tour I remember us sitting in the sun at Knorhoek having a great conversations about life in general. Here it is winter, but the wine farms all have log fires and red wine to keep us warm! Hope to see you back soon. Antoinette
