          First time doing the wine tour. Wanted to change it to half day but the tour guide, Basil, was so awesome that we stayed the full day. Super informative and every question answered. Great food and great people. Thank you Basil for making our first experience unforgettable.

          Our honeymoon highlight
          One of, if not the highlight of our honeymoon across South Africa. This day was amazing, the venues they take you to are stunning and one of the best lunches we had in the two weeks of our stay. What makes the tour great are the host. We were lucky enough to be taken around by Nelson and Angelo who were incredible. Both have a fantastic sense of humour and a great knowledge of the area. They make a great double act. There are many wine tours in the area but look no further. We will 100% return to this tour. Really made our honeymoon but also helped by a great bunch on our tour.

          Angelo knows his wine and how to make it a fun day for all. We were very pleased to learn and see. Always wanted to do that extra to make it special. Will recommend them to everyone. Safe and it will be a day to remember always.

          BEST WINE TOUR.. 10/10
          The driver Angelo was prompt to pick us up at the hotel with a friendly smile. I was impressed by his wealth of knowledge relating to the different types of wines. He paid close attention to all of our individual tastes and offered us wine based on our preferred palate. I don't particularly enjoy wine but Angelo has encouraged me to understand the unique special bursts of flavors associated with each type of wine so that I could appreciate the experience even better, which I did.. The lunch was amazing. Angelo did not rush us at each place. He made this experience so memorable and exciting... This was my second tour with this company.. And I have to say the experience and consistency have been professional and fun.. Fun.. Fun.. Definitely a 10/10..

          5 Stars! Brilliant day
          We opted for the full day tour and it was brilliant! We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cape Town, you can sit back and enjoy your day with Angelo (tour guide) guiding you through the wine regions, we were wine tasting novices before but definitely feel like we can say we learnt a lot! Angelo is a credit to his team! Don’t hesitate book this tour!

          Half day with Angelo
          Had a fantastic day with Angelo. Great dude and knows his stuff with the locals and how to tailor an experience for the customers. If you make a booking and want a guaranteed best quality experience ask for him, (Angelo) and if he isn’t available he is worth booking around his availability

          Fantastic day spent tasting a vast variety of wines. The tour guide, Angelo, is extremely accommodating and makes you feel so comfortable. The venues are stunning and the food was delicious! Worth every penny. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an affordable yet very enjoyable tour.

          Best wine tasting with the best tour guide
          Angelo was the best tour guide. His knowledge about the area, the wine farms and estates, is exceptional. He gave us a couple of special surprises for our anniversary and even threw in funny jokes. For us, this experience exceeded our expectations, all credit to Angelo. The wine estates we visited had rich history and of course magical views.

          An amazing experience, great wine and an awesome guide.
          What a great experience, from the beautiful views to the delicious wine. All covid 19 protocols were observed upon boarding. Great communication about pick up and drop off. An amazing , informative, flexible and funny guide Angelo. My partner and I enjoyed every moment of our half day Cape wine lands experience. I highly recommend this tour company. They were truly exceptional. The only thing I would recommend is that maybe lunch time is incorporated into the tour.Either then that, a 10 out of 10 from us.

I would recommend this tour to my friends and family 9/10

          Enjoyed every minute!
          If you are looking to experience the wine farms, I highly recommend booking a tour (even if it's raining!!). We had the most incredible wine experience with Angelo as our guide. We visited 3 fantastic wineries: Simonsig, Zorgvliet and Franschhoek Cellar and met some incredible people along the way. (If you visit Zorgvliet be sure to ask for Chim!) 10/10 would recommend this tour to my friends and family!

        We visited 4 wineries which had good ranges of wines on offer to taste. As expected, most of the whites were young 2019 wines but the reds went back as far as a 2014 Shiraz. 6 wines to taste at most places (3 at Lanzerac). As a couple, we shared 12 different wines at Fairview and then paid a small amount for a further six from their list. Lunch was good, accompanied by a fruity but average wine. Donovan and Basil were excellent guides and,despite the fact that there were only two of us on the tour, the conversation never lagged. Donovan, in particular, has an extensive knowledge of the wines and wineries in this area. The wineries visited change periodically so, if you want to visit particular places, ask first. Cheese pairing, biltong and brandy with chocolate, scenic views were nice touches to enhance the experience. Good value, highly recommended.

        What a fantastic trip and an absolutely brilliant day. Firstly, lots of credit must go to our guide Angelo, who was a ray of sunshine, very knowledgeable and ensured that a real community spirit was formed quickly within the group. Everything went smoothly with a nice mix of locations. The scenery was beautiful and the wine was amazing. You got so much across the whole day and the food for lunch was surprisingly good quality - great value for money! As it was our honeymoon, Angelo also managed to sort out some nice extras that were very sweet and really elevated the experience. The rest of the group were really friendly and liked minded and we had a brilliant day. Would recommend this to anyone. An absolute must-do!

The lunch was delicious and the cheese and chocolate wine pairing was perfect. I would definitely recommend this tour for an amazing wine experience of Franschhoek and some surrounding areas.

        This tour was excellent from start to finish. Angelo the guide was superb, he was knowledgeable, funny, polite and just made us feel so welcome. The other guys on the tour were all so easy to get on with, there was such a good atmosphere on the bus. The wines we tasted were delicious, all reasonably priced and the staff presenting them were full of knowledge. The tasting portions were generous and the lunch we had was stunning. The only criticism I have is that they would not pick us up from our accommodation, as advertised on their website, they had us go to a hotel to be picked up (which we only found out after paying in full) which we had to pay an Uber for, when in reality, they could have come to our accommodation. So contact them first to ascertain they call at your accommodation/hotel before booking.

        A lovely day with 3 stops in different wineries with a very nice and knowledgeable driver and guide : we recommend Nelson, a careful driver, cheerful and extremely informative.
        The first stop at Fairview came rather early for a wine taste (breakfast was not long ago ;-)). For lunch, we recommend the board to share with local cheese and vegies.
        La Brie estate and tasting was also very nice, smaller property but nice and tidy, where we also had access to the vineyards.
        Last on our tour : the wonderful estate of Boschendal, where we tasted MCC (sparkling, champagne type) in a lovely environment.
        Our fear was that we would join a bus of tourists and huge queues. Our group of 8 people in a van was small enough to allow a most friendly atmosphere.

        We had an amazing day with Angelo. He really went above and beyond to give us a personalized experience. We enjoyed a wide variety of wines while also touring cellars and learning a lot about individual varieties. I appreciated that he challenged us to try and learn more about each specific wine. Would absolutely take this tour again!

        The two guides made the trip memorable through their knowledge and professionalism. More importantly, they were great fun.
        Amazing tour. We were collected from the QM2 on time and whisked off towards three wineries. Both Angelo and Leon were fantastic guides. Such knowledge, but more importantly they made the group a family, a very happy family. The party were made up from all around the world, yet through their intervention it gelled

        Three superb venues, where Angelo ensured we were given individual service.
        Lunch at Fairview was amazing. A farm to fork establishment. Great wines and prices.
        The second winery was a small single vineyard. That was closed as it was Good Friday. Yet the master wine maker opened up just for us with a chocolate wine paring. Gorgeous, both hand made chocolate and wine.
        The final tasting was of wine made in the method of Champagne. Beautiful.
        We bought fresh oysters and other travellers purchased nibbles and chocolates. We shared the delights between us.

        During our very first visit to Cape Town, we took a chance on many excursions without knowing what to expect. The wine country tour that included visiting three wineries, including lunch, was the highlight of our visit to S.A.!!!!!! The wine tasting at Stellenbosch was awesome, which of course motivated us to buy a few selections to take back to our hotel. We weren’t too impressed with the second tour at LaBrie. The chocolates were delicious, but the wines weren’t a highlight. The trip also included lunch at Franschhoek Cellars which was to die for!!! The smoked salmon, pork bellies, seafood pasta, fish & chips, and ox tails were on our group’s plates. Everybody loved every bit!! Our final winery was at Boschendal! The outside champagne tasting under the large oak tree while viewing a setting sun, was a visual that I will never forget. It was perfect! Great idea to save that one for last! Overall, the tour was perfect. The guides, Basil and Bongo, are irreplaceable. We plan to visit South Africa again in 2-3 years, and will definitely take the tour again and will most definitely request Basil and Bongo!

        The actual wine tastings were very enjoyable and I would recommend all the farms we visited. That being said, I wish we had just used an Uber or possibly the tram instead. The day was unnecessarily drawn out, with random stops for pictures that no one wanted and 'stretching our legs' after being on the bus for about 5 minutes. The lunch was quite disappointing and the tour guide seemed really disinterested, he didn't really interact with any of us. The other people on the tour were very nice and we enjoyed the day but I would not recommend this company.

        "Ladies and gentlemen" Nelson is a plethora of winery knowledge, has unparalleled planning finesse, and the execution of this excursion will make this Your Most Perfect Day! From start to finish this trip allows you to enjoy yourself with no worries. Communication for pick up is via Whats App so you know all groups going and times of pickup. The first stop is at Fairview for 6 wine and cheese pairings. The second stop is Franschhoeck for a sumptuous lunch with wine in their beautiful courtyard. Some of the lunch selections to choose from include Tempura Hake, slow roasted Pork Belly, Seafood or Vegetarian Tageliatelle, Nectarine Salad, Grilled Chicken Salad, Vegetarian or Beef Cheeseburger... The third stop is at La Bri for chocolate pairing. Three wines are paired with berry, mint, and nut chocolates. A palate cleasing rose is also provided and the tour group had to guess the elements in a mystery wine. Our last stop was Boschendal where we sampled 4 bubbly wines while enjoying the manicured grounds of the estate. Nelson's handling of this tour was like a symphony - 4 wonderful movements where each was distinct and moving, and beautiful in every way. Highly recommend!
