Nice day of wine tasting and sightseeing

This was a nice way to sample South African wines from 6 vineyards and enjoy a nice lunch with good people. The small size of the group made it a casual and friendly outing.

The tour was very well adapted to everyone's needs and wishes - we were picked up and dropped off at convenient locations, and our tour guide - James - asked for our wine preferences and adjusted the estates to our tastes. The whole atmosphere was very friendly and informal, but still we got a lot of background info on the... More

What a fantastic day.!! We were picked up promptly at 8.45 and in the end there were twelve people on our tour. The star of the show was our tour guide James who was witty, knowledgeable and kept us entertained the entire day. We visited 4 vineyards and had a beautiful lunch.

We had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour! Our guide, James, was fun, knowledgeable, energetic, and interesting. He took us to four wineries and a fifth for lunch, so five total wineries. The wines consistently were excellent and we received great service at each location. It was clear that James had cultivated relationships at the wineries that led to... More

Just got back from a full day of wine tastings with a lovely bus full of wonderful people and an amazing tour guide James! He was really down to earth and relaxed! We went to 4 vineyards with many wine tastings, cheese, chocolates, and lunch were included. I highly recommend!

Highly recommend this tour - we visited four wine estates with about six tastings at each, with a bit of brandy thrown in and a full glass of wine over lunch..! (Bring water and have a good breakfast...) The wine estates were fantastic - great quality wine in exceptionally beautiful settings - you'll go to all the region's famous wine... More

I researched companies to do the 1 day wine tour with and was so happy we picked African Story. We had Willem showing us round who was a young, energetic, superb guide. There was just the 4 of us so it was flexible and he asked us what types of wine we liked/didn't like to tailor the tour around us.... More

We had the best time with Bruce, he's a lovely, funny, interesting and knowledgeable guy. He really knows wine and the best wineries to take you.
