“Lovely outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

We enjoyed a boat trip one Saturday lunchtime. The deli had some great choices and we selected a delicious picnic which was packed into a box complete with cutting board and knives. The bread was still warm from the oven. While we waited for the trip, we tasted the wine - which was reluctantly pored by a miserable and unfriendly lady. The boat trip was great, not particularly pretty or scenic, but a novel way to spend an afternoon chilling with a loved one. We would do it again. (Except for the wine tasting).

“River Cruise at Viljoensdrift”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

A lovely way to spend an hour on the Breede River. One can make up a picnic from the food on sale at the deli and take it on board with a bottle of wine or have a picnic lunch on the deck overlooking the river before or after the cruise. One can sit on the well-kept grassy bank of the river at Viljoensdrift and enjoy the scenery. Plenty of parking under shady trees. Cruises start at 12 noon and leave every hour on the hour. Very relaxing and enjoyable and recommended. The cost is (South African) R45 per adult.

“Wine tasting & Boat tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

Robertson area has a lot of wineries worth to be visited: a.o. Bon Courage,Springfield,van Loveren and Viljoensdrift.
At the last estate you can make a boat trip on the Breede Rivier.
Buy a bottle of wine, some snacks and enjoy the nice view of the river and surrounding area

“AMAZING wines and lovely way to picnic - on the boat trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

Really amazing wines. Great value and great taste. The boat trip is good to do if you have time to waste and would like to picnic on the water instead on the deck. Reccommended.
