Fizemos um wine tour com Jim e foi fantástico. Ele nos levou em excelentes vinícolas e explicou tudo sobre os vinhos e o país como um todo. Além disso, tem um carro super confortável e é muito paciente, possuindo um inglês de fácil compreensão. Recomendamos muito.

Jim was absolutely fantastic and taught us so much about both wine and the local area during our tour. He was personable, knowledgeable, and pleasant during the entire day. We had a much better understanding of winemaking and our preferences after the day. I cannot recommend Jim any more highly.

Jim was an excellent giude. He gave us a history of the wine area and picked several excellent wineries to visit. The winery he picked for lunch had some of the best food we had in South Africa.

We booked a full day tour with Jim and it was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday! Jim drive's the comfortable car himself and on the way he explains a lot about Stellenbosch and the flora and fauna around. The wineries he chose were excellent, so was the restaurant for our lunch! Jim has an extensive knowledge of wine, that he shared with us, while we tasted the different wines.
All in all a perfect day :-) Thanks again, Jim!

We had a great day of winetasting with Jim in Stellenbosch. Really good! He selected the 5 places to visit, aswell as the wines to taste. And they were al great! Jim knows a lot about wine and helps you with his knowledge and tips to really taste the different wines. The places he took us were also very beautiful estates with their own different story and strategy. On the way he tells about SA history, Stellenbosch, birds and plants. Well I could go on but I won’t. Just spend a little bit more money than the touristy grouptours and go with Jim. You won’t regret it😀

5 Norwegian friends went to Stellenbosch and were very happy with our guide Jim. His knowledge of wine, the country of SA, and lots of other things were impressive and added much joy to our trip. Highly recommend him!

Tusen takk Tage. Your group was wonderful and I probably had as much fun as you all did. Thanks for recommending me as well and who knows, perhaps we can explore some other cellars and regions together again in the future. Best regards. Jim.

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed our "Bubbles and Reds" wine tasting tour. By the second tasting, you REALLY start to have fun with the alcohol kicking in 😉Jim keeps the groups small and intimate to allow for a less commercial experience while wine tasting. He was not only knowledgeable about the different grapes, varietals, and wineries, but also the history of Cape Town. Good, bad and ugly of it. I would absolutely recommend Jim and African Invite!
