A tour I’d highly recommend. Our tour guide Fanny was very accommodating and professional , not only was this a wine tour but a tour of the surrounding area . Many areas we wouldn’t have explored without her guidance. We visited 5 vineyards in all , each very different sampling home wines . Though some weren’t to my taste , I did thoroughly enjoy the day getting to know the area . Thanks again Fanny !

We had booked via viator and had emailed them some information before we arrived to Cape town. Fanny was our guide for both the days which was the private wine tour and the Cape of good hope. She was very knowledgeable about all things which make our time over the two days most enjoyable and exciting. The wine tour was our highlight as we learnt a lot about wine which we never knew. The tour along the coast and stopping to see the penguins along with going to the most southern point was very nice to see and experience. Would highly recommend on booking with them and asking for fanny to be your tour guide!

We had a fantastic day with Ivan our guide and Esador our driver. Pickup from our hotel was arranged for 9:30am and we set off in the comfort of our air-conditioned vehicle. Ivan is extremely knowledgable and kept us both informed and entertained on our journey. We were privileged to receive historical commentary about the country, and made an additional stop to visit the Nelson Mandela Monuent at Drakenstein Correctional Centre as we passed through Paarl, in addition to lots of information about nature and the wine regions. Esador accompanied us to the monument and shared a moving account of his memory of the day of Mandela’s release. The three wineries chosen for us by Ivan were wonderful, with a cheese pairing in Paarl an added bonus. He had thoughtfully pre-booked us a table for lunch at the most spectacular venue in Franschhoek which really made our day, see photo for the view from our table on the veranda. I would highly recommend Ivan and the day itself. Let him know your wine preferences (our palates are amateur at best!) and he will select wineries he thinks are best-suited. Even though we are rookies, we went to truly beautiful venues and found many new wines which we enjoyed, and brought a few bottles home with us too! The prices are incredibly reasonable and you will surely enjoy it as we did.

We booked a private tour with Ivan and were not disappointed. Weeks before we had corresponded via email and planned which estates we wanted to visit and where to have lunch. Ivan organised all of this and together with our private driver we had a great day in Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. We also got a great history talk of South Africa enroute. Great day out!

We booked this tour through Viator and it allowed us to forward some information about the trip to our guide. On the day of our trip, Fanny arrived promptly at our hotel and we headed out of Cape Town to the winelands of Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch. The trip was booked to celebrate a very special birthday and Fanny ensured that the whole day was special. We started with a little “fizz” and then enjoyed tasting reds and a dessert wine, another 2 wineries followed before lunch at a picturesque restaurant, La Petite Ferme. Fanny was very knowledgeable regarding history and the areas we travelled through and she also sought to keep the wine tastings to red wines, which we preferred. Our final stop gave us cheese and wine pairings. We had a fantastic day and felt that Fanny had taken time to read about what we wanted from the day and she made sure it rose to our expectations. Thank-you for arranging a great day making happy memories.
