I was thoroughly impressed with the standard of service my sister and I received on a full day tour this past weekend. I am visiting my sister from overseas and from my first contact with John he has been responsive and keen to ensure we had an enjoyable experience suited to our wine preferences. I made some recommendations that he took into account and customised the tour accordingly. We were guided by Lieze who is the winemaker guide, is extremely knowledgeable, professional and witty. Suffice it to say it was a wine tour for the books. Do yourself a favour and make a booking with John and his team - I highly recommend their service and I will definitely be calling on them again when I return. Thank you for such a fabulous time!
Chanda.

John was super responsive, planned a custom day tour based on our interests and needs (we had a flight to catch on that same day and he dropped us at the airport) and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. The winery selection was great and John was very knowledgeable without being overbearing — we couldn’t have had a better experience!

We had an amazing experience with John Grant and Wine Escapes. John is exceptionally knowledgeable and a great ambassador for South African wines.

He picked wineries that had excellent wines but also were tremendous experiences. This was perfect for our first time in Stellenbosch.

I cannot recommend John and his company highly enough.

What a wonderful day with John (Hartley). He was knowledgable, patient, and a great guide to us wine novices. We came away with a better appreciation of not only the wine, but the region and even South Africa. He was also kind enough to help recommend a few more vineyards for us to visit onward in our trip and recommend a few wines we may like. A day well spent.

We had a Delightful private tour with John. John was recommended to us through a family member. We connected and spoke briefly before we arrived to chat about what we hoped to see and our wine interests . He customized our entire day to suit our interests and selected wineries he thought we’d like. He was knowledgeable, fun and really enjoyable to spend the day with! Highly recommend this tour ! We tasted some great wines and saw some beautiful estates.

Went on this tour recently as part of a wedding party and we all had a great time. John was a fantastic guide, informing us about multiple facets of the wine production and wine itself. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

The Tour was not only privat it was also designed to our wishes, individual and Personal. We learned a lot about SA Wine, the reason and the history.
Thanks to John it was a very Personal and Informative day.
We hope to do that again with more places.

We had such a delightful day touring Stellenbosch with John! He planned our day around the wines we enjoy and picked an amazing lunch spot which was probably the best meal of our trip. John was extremely informative and we learned so much about the region and the vineyards that we visited. The region is so rich with choices that having John navigate it and show us some of his favorites was fantastic! He was helpful with wine purchases, finding out what would be at duty-free when we flew out, making restaurant suggestions and dinner reservations...everything! The day was everything we wanted and more. We would highly recommend Wine Escapes and John. In fact, when we return we will definitely book another tour!
