          Safe and Prompt Driver
          Our driver was super professional- on time, safe, knew our itinerary in advance, and was totally flexible when we asked to stay longer at the last winery that we were absolutely loving.

          Johan’s communication was very quick and thorough. Trip was exactly as described at great prices. Must do to work with Johan for an experience in the wine lands.

          Amazing half day wine tour with Danelle
          What an amazing wine tour with Danelle, visited the Tokara and Ernie Els wineries and tasted some very nice wines. From meeting at our Stellenbosch hotel to dropping us back Danelle was an incredible host, guide, and advisor. Her knowledge of wine and South Africa in general is unbelievable, I think we earned a diploma. Plus Danelle took some excellent photographs for us at both wineries. Also, she gave us a list of recommended restaurants to try both in Stellenbosch and Cape Town. Would really recommend a tour with La Rochelle Wine Tours.

          A really enjoyable tour - highly recomended
          Danielle was a great host. It was a small party tour and we were the only ones on this tour. We visited 3 wineries all very different but all with high quality tastings. Danielle was very knowledgeable and was a mine of wine and broader South African knowledge. From talking with her it is clear she knows a lot about wine, wine making and enjoying wine. She is really good fun too, with a great, if not wicked, sense of humour. Though it was a tour it felt more like a day out with a newly found 'chum' We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend.

          Best Best Wine Tasting Tour I’ve ever experienced!!!
          Our tour guide Aylmer was above and beyond exceptional!!! This was an experience unlike any wine tasting and food pairing I’ve ever experienced. He guided us step by step through the whole process of tasting. He was early picking us up at the Hotel but didn’t rush us . This was a First Class experience and would recommend the full day wine, cheese, chocolate and olive tour with Aylmer as your guide to anyone visiting Cape Town !

          An amazing day out with Bev!
          Our driver, Bev, was excellent. Even though we’d only booked a taxi for the day(we opted to book the vineyards ourselves), Bev gave us lots of tips and even took us to try a fantastic sweet wine from Haute Cabriere which wasn’t on our itinerary but we’re very glad we visited. You can tell she’s passionate about her job and really cares about her clients. The mini bus was clean and she was on time. A great day out and very much recommended! 😊

          Fantastic wine pairing experience!
          Fantastic experience! Our guide Elma was amazing. Really friendly guy. His knowledge about wine, wine and food pairings and the local area was exceptional. We learned so much! Will definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Stellenbosch area.

          Unique wine tasting experience
          Maybe the best day of our first ever trip to South Africa. We were met by our guide, Aylmar, to discover that we were the only ones booked for the day and so had him, and his minibus, to ourselves. I won't reveal where we went but Alymar's choices were top notch and the pairing experiences very relaxed, enjoyable and enlightening! What we found particularly interesting was finding out a lot more about what makes this part of the country tick and some revealing insights on the history of SA and the social fabric of the nation. Anyhow back on the wine - if you are on the mystery tour make sure you get the nougat / Cape Classique pairings - sublime wines in an incredible setting! We will return - the day will live long in the memory.

          Wine, Chocolate, Cheese and Sunshine
          We did the Half-Day Chocolate Cheese and Wine Tour (sorry that wasn't an option in the drop down for review) with Danelle. It was our second time doing this tour (last time was 2017). Danelle has an exceptional knowledge of wine and is great at sharing this. We also ended up asking to have the very lovely Mia the daschund along on our tour. She's a very sweet dog and made for a lively outing, a great option if you're a dog lover.

          Stellenbosch wine touring
          First of all, Andrew. Absolutely a star driver, conversationalist and human being. We were so pleased to have him with us for two days straight - such a pleasure to be with. He was always early, a real gem to speak with and he has some great stories. Really recommend!!! This tour was so useful if you wish to go to wineries off the beaten track and create your own itinerary. They were superb. Highly recommend visiting Uva Mira, Jordan (picnics are sensational), Meerlust, Kanonkop, Rust en Vrede and De Toren.

          Crosby Wine Club Tour!
          This was our second chocolate, olive, cheese and wine tour with Danelle from La Rochelle Wine Tours and,again, it was a fantastic and educational day out! Danelle is incredibly knowledgeable and helps to explain the background to the regions wine industry and production. She is also good fun and takes a decent photo! A full day out with La Rochelle is excellent value and Danelle is clearly a valued client for the vineyards, which helps. Can’t recommend highly enough - and the wines are delicious! Cheers!

          Fantastic food and wine tour
          This trip was one of the highlights of our SA trip! Our guide Aylmer was incredibly knowledgeable and so easy to get on with we had a fantastic day. We felt like the day was catered to our tastes and likes but still allowed us to broaden our range of wines by trying new things! Would highly recommend booking the mystery tour and thank you again to Aylmer for such a great day :)

          Six star wine and food tour
          Danelle picked us up early (10 am) at Sunday morning and treated us to a full day of excellent wine and food. She really knows the area, its viticulture and the various estates and their distinctive character. On top of having selected some excellent wines for us to taste together with good food, she also walked us through the tastings with great knowledge as well as lot of funny and informative anecdotes. Spending a day tasing wine and food with Danelle was like hanging out with friend you haven’t seen for a long time and who knows everything there is about the local wine, so all in all an excellent day. Extra points for suggesting, and helping getting a reservation, at a really nice restaurant in Stellenbosch. Would give 6 stars if possible.

          Unforgettable wine tour
          WOW...what a day! My wife and I have taken numerous wine tours and excursions over the years, but have gotten turned-off by the crowds and oftentimes relative inexperience and lack of knowledge from the wine "experts" that have hosted them. Not even close to the experience we had with Danelle- we learned a lot about the different types of wines, how best to enjoy them, the regions and wineries we visited as well as South African wines in general. Danelle's knowledge and passion was really off the charts, and her sense of humor and enthusiasm only added to the wonderful experience. Highly recommend going with La Rochelle Tours...you will not be disappointed!

          Informative and fun!
          A terrific tour with Aylmer - who was very personable and knowledgeable. I know a decent amount about wine and he taught me a trick or two and pitched the tour perfectly. He also got the wineries to open a couple of bottles they wouldn’t normally have for general tasting, which was a nice touch.

        Best wine tour ever. This company never had less than 5 stars and I can see why. Everything was perfect from the moment I sent the enquiry, where Johan responded within minutes, very clear and detailed. Danielle arrived a couple of minutes early to pick us up from our accommodation, she found first out from us what our interests where and which wines we like. From then on it only got better. Small wineries where there were not a lot of people, (unlike the winetram in Franschhoek where social distancing is impossible).
        It was really an incredible day and we will definitely book again next year when we come to Franschhoek again.
        The price is really great for what you get.
        Wine and biltong tasting at Alto was super!
        We were sad when the day ended, Danielle is really great fun and very knowledgable.
        Also Vineyard Hopper is highly recommended, it is like a hop-on hop-off only you decide yourself where you go and when, you send a whatsapp message to the reservations number and the chauffeur will be there on the time you ask for and bring you to wherever you want to go. Excellent way of seeing the non-commercial vineyards and beer breweries.

        A fantastic mystery wine tour with food pairings! Our guide, Aylmar, was excellent - extremely knowledgeable about wine and South Africa in general. We really recommend this tour & would do it again if we’re back in Franschhoek.

        The weather was awful! But our guide & driver Danielle did everything she could to keep us dry! Great wine tasting + lunch experience. Worked with La Rochelle ahead of time to zero in on wineries that would best match our tastes. We were picked up at our hotel in Franschhoek and stopped at three wineries for tastings & lunch. We've had very little exposure to South African wines so this was our opportunity to sample a variety (but focused on reds). Danielle knew her wines and the history/personalities that developed the wine industry in SA.

        The guide (Aylmer) was particularly tuned to our specific interests -- he selected wineries and sought particular varietals based on what we had liked and discussed. He had us taste in combination with salt and cheeses, etc to bring out the individual wines' best characteristics. We have tasted wines on all six wine growing continents, and Aylmar gave us the best experience that we have ever had.

        We had a great day touring the Franschhoek wineries. The value was excellent and the pours were outrageously generous. Great day and highly recommend.

        We also used La Rochelle tours for airport and Cape Town transfers...would definitely use them again.

        The best wine tour i have ever been on (and i have been on a few!). Danelle is the perfect guide to this beautiful area. Her knowledge is encyclopedic - on the wine, the region, the history....everything. She was great company throughout the day. I'm not sure we were supposed to be out so long(!), but at no time did Danelle rush. I will definitely be back for more. Thanks Danelle.

        Really fun and informative day. Our guide Aylmer was highly knowledgeable and very friendly. He took us to a great selection of wineries (including one stunner that I won't post a photo of just because it's nice to be surprised!). We also had a really nice lunch stop with beautiful views.

        Absolutely wonderful and enlightening experience. Our tour guide Aylmer was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. We learned so much about not only the wine but the local area and culture! Would recommend to anyone. The tastings and pairings themselves were top notch - could not have asked for better selections. Aylmer was insightful on how to enjoy wine based on your own palate, and you will no doubt find some flavors you love throughout the day!

        We were picked up from our accommodation ( which wasn’t too easy to find ) very punctual and even called us just before pick up .
        Almyer our guide was very friendly from the start and we all felt very comfortable with him .
        Almyer asked what we all wanted from our day then he specifically tailors the day to suit .

        We did the wine tour with Aylmer. There were only the two of us on the trip so great personal service! He collected us on time gave and gave us a brief talk to find out what types of wine we enjoy. We visited three vineyards with lunch in between. Aylmer has a great deal of knowledge about the wines and vineyards. He is really friendly and very easy to get along with.
