If you ever want to book a winetour in Cape Town book Ligia. It was a perfect day with a lot of information about history and a lot of knowledge about wine. Ligia is an inspiring woman with passion for wine. Thanks a lot for the great experience!

We booked the tour to Franschhoek and were so impressed by Ligia, we went back for a second trip to Stellenbosch and a third to the cape. All the bespoke tours were carefully put together including amazing locations, very friendly and knowledgeable people at stunning vineyards with fabulous wines. Ligia's expert knowledge of the area, history and wine trade made the trips both enjoyable and informative. She also recommended superb restaurants. We would highly recommend Wine Desk to anyone interested in wine, but also those who enjoy visiting stunning locations and delicious food. Perfect if you are looking for a relaxed, no hassle day away from the city. Alan, Ali and Emily

We took a quick half day tour to the wineries closest to Cape town during a recent visit. What a highlight of our trip!! Beautiful, such great wine, and Ligia was extremely informative and wonderful time to be around. I would 100% recommend this tour!

I booked Ligia to take my husband and I on a private tour of SA wine country. I have been drinking South African wine for a little over a year and one of the wineries I wanted to visit was Boschendal. Ligia booked part of our reservation but I also did because I'm a planner, We hired her to pick us up and be our guide independent of the travel group we were traveling with. My husband and I went mountain biking at Boschendal before our picnic lunch and then we met up with Ligia for the scheduled wine tasting. We had a lovely time, and Ligia was very helpful. She explained that she focuses her normal tours on the smaller wineries (and I can see why, Boschendal was beautiful but bustling, and it would have been nice to have a more intimate tasting experience) but I wanted access to wines that I know I can get here in the states, and I know my small wine shop down the street has Boschendal wines. Ligia was SO helpful when going through the wines. My husband isn't a wine drinker, but he was all for the tasting and after we were through and he understood the differences in wines and could actually taste the differences in certain wine regions, he is now enthusiastic about wine! Hooray! We went to another winery and rushed through it because we wanted time to get to a third. that mountain biking took up too much time! If we could redo it, we would skip the mountain biking and just spend the day with Ligia learning about wines! She was fantastic.

We had a wonderful 2 day wine tour with Ligia de Coito while visiting Franschhoek. She is truly an expert in her field and planned a great itinerary for my husband and I. She has a wonderful personality and is easy to spend time with. She has great relationships with the wineries and her depth of experience and knowledge is quite impressive. She also gave us spot on recommendations for places to eat both in the area where we were staying and also for our visit to Cape Town. She is resourceful, helpful and is very invested in making sure you have a worthy experience. We will look her up again when we return to the area and recommend her services to our friends!
