A friend and I booked a private tour with African Story. It was truly an amazing day. Bruce listened to our requests, took the time to get to know us and then customized a fantastic day touring four different wineries. They were all very different and we loved every one. Bruce is unbelievably knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. By the end of the day, we had consumed a lot of incredible wine and learned more about the process in one day than we had in years! I would recommend Bruce and African Story to anyone no matter what their level of knowledge of wine might be. You will not be disappointed.

Overall: great tour; recommended. The pick up was around 8:30-9am, tour guide was a ball of energy full of energy. The transport was nice, 4 vineyards, 4-6 tastings of wine some with cheese, and some brandy. Lots of history. The wine was pretty affordable as well. More for people who like dryer wines
, for sweeter wines go for Constantine.

A friend and I went on the Capelands Wine tour with Bruce. I have to admit that I am not a big “tour” person but this was phenomenal. Bruce picked us up right in time and we immediately all hit it off. He was so knowledgeable and fun. We visited some great vineyards but probably our favorite (and your must do) was Fairview with that team…especially Rita.

You can spend days there and probably not experience every winery. There are so many options to pick from.

I highly recommend Bruce and African Story and can’t wait to come back to immerse myself more in all of the Capeland Wine area offerings.

Thanks again Bruce for a wonderful day!

This tour, through African Story Tours, was a good way to visit a variety of wineries and sample some local wines. Lunch was included, which kept the group together, and because the tour guide had advised the restaurant ahead of our arrival they were prepared and able to accommodate us without any delay.

The final stop of the day was at a winery which is also known for its cheeses and meats, so we were able to purchase the makings of a charcuterie tray that served as two suppers for us.

The guide was knowledgeable about the area, and the vineyards visited. He generally let the establishment’s staff take over for the tastings. He was able to fill in the broader local knowledge and history of the areas as we passed between stops.

Unfortunately, there were 12 people on this tour but the vehicle would have better suited for six or eight. We were the second-last pick-up point (meaning the van arrived 40 minutes after we were told it would) and we ended up crammed into in the very back row where our knees dug deeply into the seats in front of us and the only air-conditioning vent was broken. This considerable discomfort detracted from the tour and the bruises lasted several days.

Bruce is a wonderful guide, and a favorite at all the wineries. That makes for an especially great experience. He has great stories, great knowledge of the wine, the area, and more. Plus, he has a great sense of humor and it's clear that he loves people and loves what he does. He also has excellent wines and wineries on the tour. I enjoyed the experience and I came to appreciate wine and especially wine pairings significantly. It was a wonderful day. I highly recommend it.

We literally cannot recommend this experience (and Bruce!) enough. Bruce was able to tailor each tasting to our palette and it's not often that you get to experience a tasting guided by someone on a first name basis with the owner/vintner. Bruce was a fantastic tour guide, whose genuine passion for wine made for an amazing tour experience.

Book this tour - it'll be worth it for an authentic South African wine experience.

What a wonderful day with Nick. We were picked on time, tasted some lovely wines, perfect cheeses, had a delicious lunch with a great group. Nick was a great driver & guide all day. He was full of all sorts of knowledge, was attentive & even told funny jokes. My husband & I had a great day, as I believe the rest of the group did.

Excellent tour with Nick. The tour was a full day wine tasting with a visit to 4 farms. All were different and overall a great day out. Nick was a great host, knowledgeable and ready to please. He went out of his way to ensure that all the guests were accommodated with wine preferences. As only a small number we had more time so also had chance to walk around Stellenbosch which was a bonus.
Highly recommend

This was a great experience. The tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable not to mention professional. I tasted a lot of great wines at several vinyards in the area and even got a few bottles to take home. I would wholly recommend this tour to anyone who is unfamiliar with the vineyards in the area and wants to get a sense of what they have to offer.

We loved our tour with our very capable guide to the Western Cape wineland. We appretiated that the wineries were very different: from the very historic Muriatie, the young familyrun Remhoogte, Backsburg with the nice gardens and wonderful lunch and brandy tasting, and at the end Fairview with the cheese along with the wine. All the places have developed so much since our last visit.
Some someliers like at Fairview must take care not to speek too fast, as we foreign people cannot understand anything, and its seems they are just waiting to get the while show over with.
