          Winelands perfection
          I was communicating with Colin from almost 12 months before we visited. Three days winery touring was planned, a mixture of new wineries “New Kids on the Block”, traditional wineries and additional estates suggested by Colin. Collection from the cruise terminal was arranged and Prince arrived promptly. On our way to our guesthouse in Franschoek Prince filled us in on his experience and we confirmed pick up times etc. Day one with Prince was a revelation, our particular favourite was Stony Brook, but the other three on day one were also excellent Paserene being a close second. We then had a day off during which we visited the Franschoek Motor Museum (Fantastic). Our second days tour was spent with Colin visiting some more traditional estates including Lanzerac and three others - lunch at Rust en Verede being outstanding! Dropped off at our second guest house in Constantia and day three with Prince once more for another great day. Cannot recommend Winelands Guide highly enough - superb in every way.

          Best Experience and Guides Ever!
          My wife and I spent our honeymoon in South Africa, and we had the winelands guide for all transfers and tours (full cape peninsula tour and wine tasting tour) Cannot recommend them enough. Very reliable, friendly, safe! Every guide is so friendly and knowledgeable and will make your trip so special and memorable. 10/10 recommend. We can’t wait to go back to visit and hire them again!

          The tour guides you need for your SA trip!
          Get this tour with Tim! Tim provided an exceptional experience during our Cape Peninsula tour! His deep knowledge of the area, combined with a genuine passion for sharing its history and hidden gems, made the journey incredibly engaging. Tim's personalized attention to our interests ensured we explored both iconic landmarks and off-the-beaten-path spots, creating unforgettable memories. His friendly demeanor and insightful commentary made the tour not just informative but also a delightful adventure. I highly recommend Tim as a tour guide for anyone looking to discover the Cape Peninsula in an enriching and memorable way!

          Awesome e-bike tour with wine tasting
          Awesome e-bike experience! Colin took us around for an easy riding four hour tour. You can tell he grew up here, he virtually knows everything and everyone. The two wine tasting were amazing and included in the price.

          Amazing Tours of the Cape Peninsula and the Winelands
          Colin and his team are amazing. Everyone we interacted with did an incredible job of sharing interesting facts while still keeping the experiences extremely fun. All drivers are safe, punctual, and fun. My wife and I would (and will!) recommend Winelands Guide to anyone traveling to Cape Town and/or the wine country. One of the best parts of our amazing trip!

          Amazing morning / afternoon spent cycling through vineyards
          We had a fantastic morning with Colin from Wineland Guides. He gave us a very thorough briefing so we felt safe on the e-bikes. Colin was incredibly knowledgeable about the wine industry and local area, and stopped at the most scenic spots so we could take photos and hear more about the history of Stellenbosch. We stopped at Thelema and Rainbows End for some fantastic local wines. Also travelling via bikes through vineyards gives you the most phenomenal views that you miss when travelling via car!

          Cape Town and Stellenbosch tours
          My wife and I used winelands tours during our time in Cape Town and Stellenbosch. We had Prince pick us up from the airport and drop us off at our destination. He was an extremely friendly face and welcoming guy on our first visit to South Africa. We then had Tim take us on a Cape Peninsula through Cape Town and then a full day tour of wine tasting through Stellenbosch. Neither of my wife or I are big wine drinkers but Tim found the perfect spots for us to enjoy both wine tasting and lunch. Both were amazing tours and Tim was extremely sweet, knowledgeable, and accommodating to us. We never met the owner Colin but he too was very accommodating and helpful through the whole process. If you want to have amazing tours, at your own pace and requests, these guys will make sure everything is perfect. Thank you so much winelands tours. Whenever we come back we will call on you again.

          The best way to experience Cape Town and Cape Winelands
          I can’t imagine our trip to Cape Town and the Cape Winelands without using Winelands Guide. We spent a few days with Tim and Collin on the full day Cape Peninsula tour, private wine tour in Stellenbosch, e-bike tour through Franschhoek, and transfers to and from the airport. They were always punctual, flexible, SO knowledgeable, and it felt like touring with friends by the end. They do such a great job of making each experience feel personal. They made everything so easy and fun, and we could not imagine seeing everything we did and getting all the context and history in a better way. We could not recommend their services more for couples, friends, or families looking to explore Cape Town or the Winelands in a fun, personal, and informative way.

          We loved Winelands Guides!!
          Winelands guide is a must for your visit to Cape Town. They are a one stop shop for everything—airport transit, amazing day tours, and personalized excursions in the Winelands region. Colin, Prince and Tim are amazing— they’ll show and tell you so much about Cape Town. They are knowledgeable and flexible to their guests wants and needs. I really appreciated how they wouldn’t just take us to generic vineyards— they really made our wine tours catered to us. They truly treated us like their friends and family— so personable and fun, not to mention the vehicles were clean and modern. I would highly suggest using this company for all of your Cape Town travel needs.

          Amazing amazing amazing!
          We can’t say enough great things about Colin and his team! From the moment we met him, we had such a blast with him. We spent 3 days with Colin - 1st on the Cape Peninsula tour, we would have never seen any of the things he showed us. He was so knowledgeable and made our trip so fun! We took a ride on Chapman peak, went to cape of good hope, boulders beach to see the penguins and had lunch in Simons town. All incredible. Table mountain was closed due to weather but the next day we had a day wine tour in stellenbosch booked, and Colin went above and beyond to make sure we were able to go to table mountain before leaving Cape Town! The stellenbosch wine tour was awesome - he took us to all “non-mainstream” wineries and was very knowledgeable about his wines as well. The next day we did the same thing but in Franschoek. Colin is THE must book tour guide in Cape Town & the winelands - will be forever recommending him!!!

          Best way to see it ALLL!!!!
          My husband and I used winelands guide during our stay in Cape Town for our honeymoon. We did the full day peninsula tour with Prince and had the BEST time. He took us absolutely everywhere in a private car stocked with water. During our drive, he told us all about the history of the country and about his experience growing up and working in South Africa. We also used winelands guide as our personal guide around the winelands. We visited stolleboch and franschhoek with Collin. He knew all the locals and took us to the BEST wineries! If you’re looking for a reliable, trustworthy and fun guide to truly see it all, I would highly recommend!!

          Best tour guides we’ve encountered and very knowledgeable. We had a lot of fun and laughs with Prince and Tim! Definitely would recommend them for the Penninsula tour of Capetown and the Winelands in South Africa. Catered to our taste in wine took plenty of photos and made the trip memorable.

          Hands down, the best tour agency!
          My sister and I had the absolute best time with the Winelands Guide team! We booked with the Winelands Guide team for three days and explored all of Cape Town. We loved getting to know the team and exploring the beauty of Cape Town with them! The team made us feel safe and we consider them friends for life! (Thank you Prince and Tim for being amazing! ) Our trip was wonderful because of Winelands Guide. I wholeheartedly recommend the Winelands Guide to anyone seeking an extraordinary travel experience. Thanks to the team, my sister and I enjoyed a remarkable trip filled with unforgettable memories!

        My wife and I visited Cape Town during our honeymoon in February, and we did the 'Private Winelands Tour' AND the 'Private Cape Peninsula Tour' with Colin. We spent two full days with Colin as our guide, and had an absolutely amazing time! Colin is extremely knowledgeable about the wineries in the region and created a perfect itinerary for us based on the wine and food we told him we like. He picked the best wineries and restaurants to take us to! Colin was also so friendly and accommodating during both tours, and was just great company all around! We had nothing but positive things to say about our experience. When we go back to Cape Town in the future, we will definitely book another tour with Colin!

        We did tours in Cape Town and the Winelands with Colin and have nothing but incredible things to say about our experience. Colin is not only knowledgeable and passionate about all things South Africa and wine, he is a gem of a human. We spent quite a few days with him and really got to know each other. He is so nice and thoughtful and genuinely wants to ensure you are getting everything out of your experience in South Africa that you had hoped for. He gave great recommendations for activities and we felt we were in great hands the entire time we were with him. I cannot recommend using the Winelands Guide enough! Booking him will surely enhance your time in SA.

        We did an e-bike tour with Colin through Stellenbosch and had an awesome day! It was by far the highlight of our stay in wine country. We went to three different wineries and a lunch and were treated to great service at each. The e-bikes were super fun to ride through off-road trails that connected the various wineries. Colin is such a fun, kind person and was the perfect guide for the day. He is very knowledgeable about the region as well as the different varieties of wine so it was an educational experience as well! Colin also took great photos of us throughout the day and drove us to the town of Stellenbosch as a courtesy. This tour is seriously a must do for anyone spending time in Stellenbosch or Franschhoek. You won't regret it!

        We did our tour with Colin through the Winelands and it was the best tour we have been on(not including the wine!) He was so kind from the moment we met him. He taught us so much about the area and wines- you could tell that he was extremely passionate. Colin was the best tour guide and I regretted not booking him for other tours while we were in the area. We will definitely recommend him to anyone that is visiting Cape town. We will be back!!

        Amazing wine tour! We ended up doing 2. One day Ishmael drove us around for a wine land tour to 3 different wineries. It was an amazing experience and he was so kind and nice it was a great experience. He went above and beyond showing us around and different areas we hadn’t seen yet.

        We also did a biking wine tour with Colin. We had 3 other couples with us which was amazing getting to know other people and experience the wine lands together. We biked around to 3 different wineries. I was scared to bike and taste wine but Colin assured me it would be great and it was! I highly recommend this tour because you get to experience the winelands not from a car. Don’t worry the bikes are electric so there is minimal effort! It was an amazing day.

        Overall I think we spent everyday of our time in the winelands with Colin and his team and I couldn’t be happier. They felt like family from the moment we arrived and it was truly and amazing experience we will never forget. You MUST hangout with them while in South Africa you will not be disappointed!

        Colin is by far the best tour guide I have ever had. Having lived in Cape Town for several months, and visited multiple times since then, I can say with confidence and experience that this private tour of the wine lands is the most fun, relaxing and comprehensive tour you can find! Colin is very special to my husband and I as he planned our entire wedding at Zorgvliet wine estate in Stellenbosch. Not only does he give excellent tours, but he is also an extremely resourceful and talented wedding planner.

        Had an incredible day on a private tour of the winelands in Stellenbosch, which was a highlight of our honeymoon in May 2019. Colin was extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and a pleasure to spend the day with. He picked us up from our hotel in Cape Town, and did an amazing job planning the day for us from start to finish, picking great wineries to visit, and helping arrange restaurant reservations. Can’t recommend this enough!

        Colin from start to finish curated an AMAZING and private wine tour. Because he lives in wine country and has worked at the vineyards, he knows the magical spots that have breathtaking views to taste wine. We even met the owners of one of the vineyards! He’s the type of knowledgeable, insightful guide that you are happy to spend the entire day with and welcome his robust insights on wines and grape growing. I’ve previously had experiences at wineries in the USA where you end up having too much to drink and the experience is no longer fun. That wasn’t the case at all on this tour. Everything is drawn out and the timing is perfect. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour!
