Fantastic tour
Mar 2020
This was a fantastic tour - we visited several wineries and had plenty of time for lunch in Stellenbosch. The driver was lovely and he was very happy to be flexible with what we wanted to do - we ended up staying longer at the last winery to share another bottle of wine between the group.

Winelands are beautiful
Feb 2020 • Solo
The winetasting was very great, i wasnt the biggest fan of the red‘s, but thats probably because i just like the white wines better.
I got to learn a lot about all the areas and we had very nice conversations.
I really enjoyed the trip with Guide Lizel. She was funny and answered all of our questions.
Would definetly do it again.

Highly Recommended
We have been to quite a few wineries and this tour stood out because of the ice cream tasting and the biltong pairing. In addition the wineries we visited had gardens and other products. If you have already toured wineries and seen the process, this is a fun way to mix it up a bit.

Our guide Liesl was amazing. Sincerely enthusiastic about wine, the scenery and South Africa and unflappable in tricky traffic and other situations.

The hotel pickup was really nice but be aware it takes a while so you will have a chance to look around Cape Town. If the pickup takes too much time you could likely book a private tour with the same driver guide and have a good experience, but the small group we has was actually pretty fun.

Good but not great
Jan 2020 • Couples
The tour itself was very good, the driver/ guide knowledgeable and the vehicle comfortable. We had three ( not four) tastings as they have modified it to allow over an hour for lunch (not really necessary).
We had a tasting of wine followed by a wine and ice cream pairing and then a wine and bolting tasting.
The real downside was being the first pickup we were in the vehicle over an hour collecting others from their hotels.
It would be a better tour with a central meeting point.

This tour offers 3 wine-tastings, however 4 stops in total as stated in the 'included' and 'what to expect' section of the tour description. We apologize for the misunderstanding on the way the product is represented on the map-view as we notice now the 4th stop (lunch stop opportunity) is displayed the same way as a wine tasting by the viator website. This tour includes a free pickup service allowing a pick-up range of 10km radius within the Cape Town city centre, unfortunately, traffic can add delays on pickups which entailed a longer time in the vehicle before the tour start this time. We appreciate your valuable feedback and appreciate that your overall 4-star rating for this tour and our guide indicates that you still had a great experience on tour. From Team Hotspots2c.

Do it if you love wine ...hic!
Liezel was an excellent guide for the day - early to pick me up and then drop me off home after sampling 17 different wines. The ice-cream match was my favourite part.

Tour was well paced (there is some free time) and organized. Thanks!

Good Wine Tasting- Below Average Lunch...
We really enjoyed every wine farm and the tastings that accompanied them as well as the driver of the mini van, however if you compare the quality of the wine farms and where they took us for lunch it’s unfortunately very disappointing.. As locals we were saddened that our fellow tourists are treated to a mugg&bean lunch., there are som many wine farms that offer a tasting & lunch for e.g that would’ve completed the wine tour experience- it is a beautiful region and why not show it off... We did pick up that some of the tourists who have either been to SA before or have been there for a while also noticed that being taken to a coffee shop for lunch was a bit cheeky.

Thank you for taking the time to write down your experience and give us the valuable feedback of your Taste the Winelands tour. We take great pride in offering an excellent touring experience and your feedback does raise some concerns. As lunch is for your own account it should allow you the opportunity to choose. After investigating this with our guide, the meal stop visited on this particular day may not have been the best choice. However this was decided with the specific group in mind (full tour bus) to ensure enough time for wine tasting and exploring the historic town of Stellenbosch. We apologise that the stop did not meet your expectations and has ensured going forward the guide will provide suggest a wider range of authentic restaurants/ lunch options for the group to choose from. We are happy to know you enjoyed the wine farms and the unique wine pairings selected for this tour - which this tour is so popular for. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback ensuring us to continually improve our offering. All the best, Hotspots2c Tours

Enjoyable trip
Jan 2020 • Friends
This is an enjoyable and well organised wine tasting tour. If you’re looking to visit a few vineyards in the region and try some great wine this will do the trick nicely. Our guide was knowledgeable and worked hard to ensure everyone was well looked after.

Lunch was at Mugg & Bean in Stellenbosch, which is a bit basic, and the table was pre-booked so there was no opportunity to look elsewhere. It’s not a problem if you just want a quick, cheap lunch but if you’re expecting the opportunity to eat at a nice restaurant at one of the vineyards you may be disappointed.

The only thing lacking for me was an opportunity to tour the vineyard itself and learn a bit more about the wine making process. This tour is very much focused on the tasting of various wines.

The wine was delicious however and it was very enjoyable to try tastings with ice cream and biltong. I would be happy to do the tour again or to recommend.

Sip, Sip Hooray! Thank you for taking the time to share your 1 day Taste the Winelands experience with us. Thank you for your kind words about one of our wonderful tour guides. Lunch is for your own account and this should allow you the opportunity to decide where to eat, however, our guides are given the freedom to assess the size of the group and how the tour is running on the day to determine where a good place would be to eat to ensure enough wine tasting time. We pride ourselves in putting together a unique wine tasting/pairing tour for you to enjoy and we are so thankful for your recommendation! Cheers to a 4-star rating. We would love to have you on tour again. Team Hotspots2c

Great Day of Wine Tasting!
I highly recommend this tour. Liezel was our driver and was amazing. She was an excellent driver. Very knowledgeable about the area and vineyards we visited. She kept us on track throughout the day. Our favorite winery was the 1st stop which was the farm. We also did a wine & ice creme pairing which was a first for us all. I will definitely book with Liezel again when we return to the area.
