We met our guide Louis in Stellenbosch and from there he took us to four wineries, including one with a restaurant situated right next to the vineyard where he dropped us for a delicious lunch break around midday. He was well-informed, gauging our interests as well as what we were up for quickly and matching that with a variety of venues that suited us well. The first winery he took us to was so good we came back again while passing through on our way out of town to grab several more bottles beyond what we'd purchased on the tour -- we just couldn't get enough!

Dear Guest Thank you for your lovely review and the time to also write it. We are just so happy for every tour now, after a really difficult and quiet time in Carona. Louis also really enjoyed your company & wonderful to hear you went back to the first farm of the day again. We do our utmost best to visit the smaller hidden gems of Stellenbosch & other wine country. Louis is actually doing a tour in Botrivier and Elgin wine region today - perhaps a option for you next time...... Kind Regards all the best for 2022. Antoinette & Louis

It was a great experience. The attention that Louis dedicated to us was excellent and we really tasted very good wines in the wineyards with stunning views.
We can highly recommend this activity if you want to know the Stellenbosch wines.

Dear Penelope & Mario. Thank you so much for booking with us and being one of the first clients to book via Viator in Covid time, since March 2020. We really needed this tour and thank you so much for booking. Louis loved being out on tour again and being with tourists! I think he enjoyed the day more than you did perhaps, he he. We hope to have tourism back to normal soon in SA. All safety precautions are followed as far as we can to explore the stunning winelands during summer. All the best, and stay safe. Please make contact again if you are in Cape Town / Stellenbosch area. Regards Antoinette

Our guide, Martin, has extensive knowledgeable about wine and wine region, and history of South Africa, really made the tour. The Wineries selected have us a perspective of wine in the region, From small start-ups to large producers. His personality went along way to making it a great tour.

About the only negative was the selection of the restaurant. The food was great but service was way too slooooooow. The restaurant tried to make up for screwing up our order by plying us with their mediocre wine.

The number of Wineries (4) was the right amount, but the large selection at Johnstone kind of became an overload. Had to take a long nap after the tour to sleep-off the excess of tasting. Great value for the price and the experience.

Dear Client Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. I am glad to hear that Martin & his knowledge was the highlight of the tour for you. Your tour was on 18 February with a group of 8 people. The lunch was booked at Clos Malverne that specific day, currently No2 on Tripadvisor for restaurants in Stellenbosch. I understand that your lunch took long and Martin did his utmost best to follow up with the Kitchen and we arranged a glass of MCC for you all - sorry that you saw this as mediocre. Restaurants are extremely busy in peak season and yes perhaps there was a hick up with your order that got mixed on the day, but in general Clos Malverne have glowing reviews and our guests are very satisfied here. I did follow up with management and they are aware of the slow service that day and will be more attentive to our guests in the future. Unfortunately it is out of Camino tours hands how the speed and service of a restaurant will operate on a specific day - a pity that you rather did not leave your comments on their own site :o( There is no wine estate like Jhonstone - you are probably referring to Louisvale. This was your last estate the day. They especially stayed open for us a bit later to still accommodate us for a tasting at 16:15. ( they usually close at 4pm) 6 wines were poured as a last and 3rd tasting estate for the day. Nobody forces any client to taste / drink all the wine. There is spittoons on the tables and guests can spit out or you could have ordered a coffee and we would have gladly paid for it instead of a wine tasting, if you informed us you had enough. We can not control how much guests taste / drink and this is each to their own. With 3 wine estates for tasting & 1 lunch stop - we feel that this is a good balance compared to some companies that push in 5 / 6 estates a day. Thank you for your review Camino tours team.

My wife and I booked this trip on the back of rave reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Louis was a great guide, very entertaining, knowledgeable and informative. Our first stop to Deux Freres, where we were met by Retief and her friendly dogs was just brilliant. Her warm and welcoming reception blew us away, as did the quality of their produce. This place is a must in our view. We then went to several other wineries and enjoyed a sumptuous meal for lunch. Louis even let us explore Stelenbosch itself for a while before bringing us back safely to Cape Town. Fantastic day, well organised and great communication. Top draw 😎

Dear Stephen. Thank you for this lovely review. What a treat to read. Louis really loved his tour with you and he said he will make the recipe still for me that he gave him. Looking forward to the Yorkshire pudding. Hope the giraffes will arrive safely that you bought with your Stellenbosch town visit. We love our smaller wine estates indeed, Deux Freres is only one of them. Thank you again for booking and posting the lovely pictures. Love the one of the 3 of you between the wine barrels!! All the best - and think of us when you sip down that dessert wine ! Cheers, Antoinette & Louis

This was an overflow group consisting of just my wife , myself and the guide Janine. We visited four vineyards. The first was a large wine producer in the area and consisted of matching cheeses. All very fine. The second and probably the best was Deux Freres Wines. Although perhaps not as flash as the first the wine was spectacular and the welcome so warm and genuine. The knowledge of our guide was first rate and her connection to the vineyards noticeable. The lunch at the third vineyard was excellent which was paid for by us but worth every penny. The final vineyard was interesting but the wines were not so much to our tastes.
Having done wine tours in Australia this was far better. Can totally recommend this tour.

My wife and I had Antoinette organise two tours for us - a wine tour and a Hermanus tour.

So a day before our Hermanus tour we arrived at Cape Town airport to emails, text and what’s app from a frantic Antoinette informing us that due to weather conditions the boat trip to watch the whales was cancelled but she had some options for us and wanted to discuss. She could have had us still do the day trip to Hermanus and not get on the boat but she is no ordinary tour organiser ... she actually cares about the customer.

After some discussions and her moving things around we ended up doing the wine tour the first day and the Hermanus tour the second day - she was even able to get us on a boat last minute. She was brilliant! Over and above ... that is where she went.

Wine Tour with Martin was really enjoyable. It was good to be shown around by someone who knows wines (rather than just a driver). He took us to 4 vineyards + lunch - again well organised and the structure of the day ensured that we saw big and small vineyards and did some tastings of just wines and some pairing with cheese. Thank you Martin.

The following day was Hermanus and Louis (Antoinette’s husband) took us out. We did the early 9am boat so it was all about getting there in time in the morning. Once we had seen the whales on the boat trip we were more relaxed and Louis tailored his day and time to suit our needs. We walked the town, had lunch at a fantastic little place called Dutchies, we drove off the main road to little hidden gem viewing points, saw the penguins... Louis could speak to everything from wine, whales, flowers, history of area to golf! Thank you Louis (hope you were able to hit a few at the range later).

I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and use again Antionette and her team! Thanks for making it memorable.

Dear Mr & Mrs Seth. Wow, thank you for this comprehensive and lovely review. I was only a pleasure to plan your trips. If clients book more than one tour with us, we always try to juggle and shift tour dates, to best suit the weather we can not control. So glad you got onto the boat in the end and that you enjoyed both tours with Martin and Louis. We are honored by this review. Thank you again for booking and I hope you will enjoy the wines you bought back home. Till a next time perhaps, Antoinette & team.

Had a fabulous day visiting 3 wineries and sampling 17 wines, inter spaced with a great lunch. Louis our guide and driver was very informative and knowledgeable with over 12 years of experience in the wine industry himself. All 3 wineries were located in and around the stunning countryside of Stellenbosch making our wine tasting event, one to remember for years to come. Anyone looking to go on a wine tour around Stellenbosch should definitely get in contact with Camino Tours.

We did the tour starting from Stellenbosch with Martin and had a great time. We visited a mix of larger and boutique wineries and tried a huge array of wines! The morning was set with the wineries but it was tailored for our last one to visit a winery which we would like - we opted for a winery which did local bubbles! A great experience.
