This is a great way to taste wine, and at one point I was going to give them an excellent rating. Everybody understands African time and so at 1st everybody was relaxed. However, as the day progressed, their time keeping got worse and worse, and their communication either unreliable or non existent, to the point we waited over 90mins at what should have been our penultimate wine tasting to then be told we were too late to do a last winery and then find there were 11 passengers for 10 seats for the journey back. Speaking to one of the wine tasting staff, one of the drivers left and has not been replaced. They couldn’t understand why the managers couldn’t get their hands dirty and drive their 3 vehicle. Today believe there were 20 people for 2 vehicles but with at least 3 parties. The drivers had no hope of coping with this logistic mare. They made time promises that they could not possibly keep. Looks like the wine hopper previously had great reviews and can see why. However if a 3rd driver is not employed soon, fear the tourists are going to lose patience with this mode of transport and the company will struggle

This is a super easy way to hop on and hop Off the safari style truck to get around the wineries. The drivers look after you and make sure they know where you want to go and by what time (if you have reservations) Each day has a list of the wineries they visit on that day and we would strongly recommend you book ahead for lunches. Our tour was on a Wednesday and we decided to visit Bouchard Finlayson, Newton Johnson and then Creation for lunch, followed by Spookfontein. That for us was plenty for the day, but you can squeeze more in if you choose to!

Picked up at our address the other side of Hermanus and returned back there at the end. In between very efficient hop on and hop off up the Hemel valley with minimum wait time and safe driving. Don’t expect luxury seating but do take advantage of a reliable, convenient and efficient way to make the most of the vineyards all the way up to Creation and beyond. Recommended. Personally I would skip the first two stops.

Absolutely fantastic way to see the wineries of the Hemel en Aarde Valley. Lunga and Siviwe were excellent and provided amazing service. Definitely one of the better wine tours out there.
