The hotel booked the wine tour for us at short notice.
Our guide for the day was Andre. He was both enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We visited four wine farms which were all very different. Our favourite was Muratie where Andre explained how South African wine is still made by traditional methods.
We tasted at least five wines at each farm and had the chance to buy as well. Lunch and another glass of wine was included.

This was such a pleasant day and lived up to our expectations. It was also incredibly good value. Thank you Andre.

Thank Neil C

We had a great experience with Neil. He was easy to work with and the van was clean and comfortable. Neil is very knowledgeable and he is laid back and will cater to your groups needs. We didn't just have a few samples and move on to the next stop, we walked through the vineyards, enjoyed the views and took our time while Neil educated us about the wines, the vineyard history and some local area history as well. Our lunch was delicious and we enjoyed some special entertainment from the hosts. Our day tour could not have been better. Thanks Neil!

We had thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Niel through the winelands in the Stellenbosch region this week.
Niel is clearly very knowledgable and experienced, he knows an awful lot about wine-making/tasting and has a very personable, relaxed way of sharing this.
We travelled in comfort, we felt very well taken care if and were very appreciative about being taken a little off the beaten track too.
We cannot recommend Niel highly enough if you are after a genuine, personal wine tour.

I was recommended the full day wine tour by my daughter who did it about a year ago. Arrangements were made via email with Niel who was highly responsive and helpful throughout. Our guide for the day was Andre who was exceptional. He is friendly and a font of knowledge on the history of the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek area as well as, of course, the wine industry. We were a group of four who joined a total group size of 12. This worked well and we were all friends by the end of the day!

Lunch with wine is included and was very enjoyable. Cheese and biscuits were also provided at one of the wine estates. There was a very good variety of wine estates visited so it never felt 'samey'.

I'd highly recommend this company and the all day wine tour.

We would highly recommend a wine tour with this company. We had a great day out at some excellent wineries. Niel was so friendly and knowledgeable, taking pictures for us and telling us all about wine making in South Africa. All the wineries were generous with their sampling and I do regret not buying more wine while we were there!! Overall the easiest and best way to visit wineries in the region. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel and had an amazing lunch and cheese platter.
