      Wonderful Half Day Winey Tour!!
      This was an amazing tour and location. We went to two different Wineries and both were excellent. Our tour guide was really great as well.

      Good experience.
      The tour was great, the selected wineries were very good, with good tastings. The Guide was also very nice, explaining everything at all times, answering questions, etc. The only problem was regarding the prior organization, as we ended up being 1 hour late from the scheduled time, which shortened our experiences at the locations.

      Bad Experience/Poor Customer Service
      Pick-up was 20+ minutes late and did not try to contact me at all. Activity listed for an 8:30 start, they weren’t ready to pick me up until closer to 9:20. Ended up requesting a refund and cancellation due to all of the issues. Company claimed they would cancel and provide full refund (have screenshots) but still no info or confirmation of it being processed. I do not recommend. For an all day (9hour) activity, I was told by others who attended as well as the company rep that they only visit 3 wineries. Less expensive and more efficient/timely to go by yourself.

      Great authentic Indian cuisine
      Fantastic service and food. Staff are very friendly and take time to explain dishes and degrees of spice levels. If you want dishes to have an extra kick then they will accommodate this.

      Terrible and misaligned booking system
      More of a scam than anything, booked through their authorised platform. Immediately after payment, they had a decency of calling me and indicated that the time slot chosen is no longer available. Disgusting to say the least.

      History of apartheid and a visit around the township
      Hamlet our driver was brilliant. He explained the history of apartheid. This was extended when we visited the museum in Cape Town. The trip around the township was very sobering and the people and children were amazing, Thank you Hamlet and the guide that day in the township. Well worth a visit.

      Wine Tasting to Marianne and Stellenbosch estate.
      This tour with Africa Eagle was the best and my first time in life visiting a wine land. Both the state had different type of wine tasting. I bought 6 bottles if wine from Stellenbosch. Stellenbosch is small town and beautiful the whole area with university in middle of the town. Good if can stay there 2 night and explore the town.

      Disappointment
      This company messed up our booking so we missed out on the half day wine tour to Stellenbosch on our final day in Cape Town. To avoid disappointment, DO NOT USE.

      Badly let down
      Unreliable company. We were booked onto half day wine tour from Cape Town to Stellenbosch on our final day in Cape Town. The company picked us up from our hotel but for a different tour and were unable to recall the wine tour bus. A very disappointing end to our otherwise lovely stay in Cape Town. To avoid disappointment do not use this company

      Not the best wine tour
      This winetour started with 10/10 at the first wineyard. Very nice tasting with cheese with the different wines. Second stop was at Mariannes 5/10, nice views and ok wines, then lunch in Franschoek and then a small touristtrain to last stop wich was 1/10. Totally unintrested wine staff. Our tour guide was excellent but the driver had a poor driving... My personal suggest is that a half day tour is better.

      Excellent service
      Cattle Baron Kleineschuur, R44, Stellenbosch, Winelands Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa 021 300 0222 stellenbosch@cattlebaron.co.za We reserved a table for 17 seats. It was to celebrate my 70th birthday. The service from arrival to departure was absolute awesome. The food was well prepared with no mistakes and timed that we all got our meals almost simultaneously. The staff were 100% focused on service Highly recommend this place. I'll certainly be back.

      Unmet Expectations
      Unmet Expectations Dear Fellow Travelers, I write this review with a heavy heart to prevent others from falling into the same mistake I made with African Eagle day tours. My recent experience with their tour was far from satisfactory, and I feel compelled to share the details to help you make an informed decision. From the beginning, the driver candidly admitted that due to time constraints, a proper exploration of the scheduled activities would be impossible. This admission alone should serve as a red flag, as it indicates a clear awareness of a problem that persists within their Cape peninsula Tours. Moreover, there's an additional entrance fee of R 190 for the penguin site, but the allocated 20 minutes after payment are woefully insufficient to fully enjoy the main attraction. The rushed nature of the tour, justified by the company condensing an 8/9-hour experience into 4 hours, only confirms that they are offering something impossible to be delivered. The most disheartening part is the constant reminder during the tour that time constraints hinder its fulfillment. This raises serious questions about the why they are selling a product that the company acknowledges cannot be delivered as promised from the outset. I reached out to the management in an attempt to prompt a reassessment of the tour's presentation, itinerary, and pricing, but unfortunately, my efforts were in vain. In reality, the van moves at a speed that doesn't allow you to take pictures or truly appreciate the surroundings. In my opinion, you'd be better off planning your own journey with an Uber, giving you the flexibility to make up your own time and truly experience the beauty of the area. Please heed this warning and consider alternatives before booking. Let this review serve as a cautionary tale to protect your time, money, and travel expectations. Safe travels,

      If you’ve got spare time
      As it was just me on the tour was fairly boring tbh. The other people cancelled on the morning of the tour. My driver and tour guide was very friendly and helpful(Lou). Picked up at 9am and headed to the first wine place where was wine and cheese pairing. Very tasty. Then had short walk though stellenbosch as was only me so had more time . We then went to last wine place. Which was meant to be biltong pairing but I don’t eat meat so they gave me some crackers and grapes. I found it very interesting they didn’t give you new glass for each wine but just poured rose white red in same glass. On way home was but of mix up with who waseant to be taking me home and didn’t enjoy the wasted time or confusion.

    Dinner was great and run by golds the restaurant. The tour company resells this experience by charging double vs booking with the restaurant directly for the convenience of getting picked up. I get it. That said, the company did not give our contact information to the driver so we had no idea who was picking us up. They assigned a time and literally did not tell us anything. The driver had no way of reaching us. We called the office and could not understand anything the operator was saying. We had him on speaker and 5 guys sitting around trying to make out any of the words he was saying. We called multiple times to figure out what was going on. Once the dinner was over, we waited 20 minutes but the driver was dropping someone else off. We ended up Ubering home so we didn’t have to waste our time. So essentially we paid double what the dinner should cost just to take our own transportation. Just book directly with the restaurant, it will be a better experience vs working with these guys.

    We absolutely loved the drumming lesson and African food tour at Gold! It’s a great idea for date night while you’re visiting Cape Town. Everyone brought their A-Game, from the servers, to the performers and even the greeters. You don’t want to miss this one!

    This is a very fun and interactive evening and dinner. Tasting of traditional foods and experiencing great music and dance were the evenings highlights. The colorful dress, art, gift shop and face paint were unexpected additions to a fun filled night in beautiful South Africa.

    Obviously a touristic experience but well executed with attention to detail. The decor, table settings and waiting staff in African prints all set the scene. The drumming hands on lessons were fun and different. The show sketches were short but good and the performers moving through the audience added to stage performances.
    The drinks and meal service were excellent and the food served was a tasty experience with all the shared dishes and extras offered at no extra cost if you wanted more. We were pleased to hear that any food left goes to the homeless each night.
    It was a very good evening and one to be recommended as we enjoyed it very much.

    The food was very good, the drumming experience and the shpws were so much fun. Alsp we were on our honeymoon and they performed a little show for us in front of our table and offered us free Amarula shots to celebrate. That was very kind and cheerful

    This is a huge restaurant that looks nice and interesting as you are coming in…
    I was assigned to a table almost behind the stage… attention was good. They constantly bring you supposedly typical meals from around Africa. They pretty much all taste the same. The performances are good but not amazing. Then come all the sets of birthday celebrations… they wanted to charge me for a soda that was included with my dinner and made me wait like half an hour. I didn’t want to pay for the principle…
    Avoid it!

    This was such an exciting night, we were picked up by the included car service, and greeted by all staff at the door with welcoming smiles. The drumming experience was so intense and entertaining. Toward the end our servers sang happy birthday to my husband and happy anniversary to my sister and brother-in-law. Then they transported us back to our hotel. A lovely night in Cape Town Africa 💜🎵🎵🙌

    We had the most amazing time! We started off with a fun drumming session followed by cocktails and several tasty dishes. The service was prompt, accommodating an d friendly. The entertainment through the evening was spontaneous, exciting and top notch. We were the last guests of the evening and never once did we feel hurried to leave.

    Loved this experience. We were collected from our hotel and dropped right a the venue and then taken straight back to the hotel afterwards. We loved the food, the drinks, the service, the drumming experience - everything was so lovely. Two teenage boys enjoyed it as well. We left with our faces painted feeling really happy.
