We had a very enjoyable tour with our guide Juliana. We were lucky, we were the only two on the tour. She gave us a lot of information about the history of this beautiful town. Moreover she told us a lot of nice things to know when staying in Stellenbosch. It was a very pleasant experience, highly recommended. She suggested to speak Afrikaans because we are Dutch. Never thought it would be that easy to follow for us. Very nice experience, thank you Juliana.

Thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Stellenbosch. Great way to get your bearings and understand more about the history of the place. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and made the experience lots of fun. Also, our group was of just five people which was even better!

Stellenbosch is a charming little town and possibly the only piece of our history that is so well preserved thanks to the Ruperts.

Although we have been to Stellenbosch several times previously this was the first Tour we have booked and wished we had done it earlier, as the excellent guidance by Johan really set the stage for this fabulous town. We learnt so much, and in a way that was natural, logical and interesting. It probably helped that we were the only two on the Tour, so it was a personal service. Johan pitched it just right, a good blend of history, social anthropology and gossipy titbit!

This is a simple 90 min walking tour of the downtown historic area and a great way to acclimate yourself to the city and see where the main things are. The guide is knowledgeable, friendly, and is willing to answer any questions. Highly recommend you take this tour on the first day in town as it was very helpful. Well worth it.

Great tour with Johan. Very personable and informative. We have become walking tour junkies, taking advantage of this way of learning about cities all over the world. This one was definitely up with the best. In addition to the local history, Johan is also very knowledgable about the local wineries.

Fabulous Stellenbosch autumn day. We were the only two on the tour that afternoon so had the opportunity to ask many questions. Johan was font of knowledge and obviously is very proud and fond of his town. The walk is not onerous; all you need is a pair of sneakers. The time flew and we left Johan with a clear sense of history and a desire to find out more - ourselves! Stellenbosch is so accessible on foot. Thoroughly recommended.

With only two days in the winelands we didn’t have much time to explore so this tour on the first morning was a very useful and affordable way to orientate ourselves in Stellenbosch and learn the history of the town.
With only two of us on the tour it was great to see everything at our pace. The guide was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable.
We were given recommendations for further exploring, restaurants and things to do which was also a great help.

We arrived a little early for the tour, but we were warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home. The tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable on the history of Stellenbosch and the Cape. She answered all our questions and was very patient with the slightly slower than usual pace on account of one of our group having a previous injury that slowed them down a little.

We enjoyed the interaction with the tour guide, with the town, and with the history. Being able to see and touch the history of such a beautiful place was amazing and really stuck with us. It was wonderful to experience the passion the tour guide, and indeed the locals, have for their home.
I would love to be able to go back and find out more. I would recommend this tour to everyone that goes to Stellenbosch.
