As an expert in the region, Taryn offers the opportunity to get off the commercial path and have a personalized wine tour experience. Before booking, Taryn asked us what type of wine we enjoyed, what were we looking to see or do, and then booked the tastings accordingly. As Taryn took us on a Cape Peninsula the day before our tour and got to know us, she even adjusted some of the farm visits after meeting us. Furthermore, Taryn helped us to better get to know the people of South Africa and its history, as she answered our stream of never-ending questions on the drive. We can't wait until we can visit SA again and take a tour with Taryn!

I booked a one day tour with Taryn after coming across a leaflet on a previous trip to Stellenbosch. On the day we were picked up from where we were staying in Somerset West, did a couple of amazing places inn the morning, stopped for a leisurely lunch, and another wine farm in the afternoon. Having done a number of the farms in the area before we weren't wanting to rush around and see as manny as possible, and I specified family run places which were superb. Taryn's knowledge was excellent, and has an affinity with the great staff at these places. She was great at showing us around, given us insights into the farms, and showed lots of passion for the business. She was also excellent company and a laugh on the day. We all enjoyed ourselves and would thoroughly a private tour with her.

if you want to learn about SA wine, taste some lovely wine and have a really enjoyable time then look no further than Taryn of The Wine Specialists ( formerly Redwood Tours) we took one of her tours 4 years ago when we were last in Stellenbosch and were so impressed and enjoyed it so much that first thing we did when returning to Stellenbosch earlier this month was to book another tour as good if not better this time; she is so knowlegeable and enthusiastic about SA wine, helpful and generous with her time and has access to some of the more boutique wine farms that are a lot more interesting than some of the bigger better known farms dont hesitate to book her, much better than trying to do it on your own, great value

I loved South Africa. Cape Town to Port Elizabeth was my tour. The wine region was second only to Cape Town itself. The wine is great. The cape area is a quality place and surprisingly inexpensive. I'll be back.

We had a wonderful tour with Taryn in Stellenbosch! It is obvious that she loves wine and wants to share that passion with others. She asked about our wine preferences and took us to wine farms that she knew would fit into our tastes. Each stop was excellent and the wines were amazing! Not to mention that she was great company and we had a blast driving around with her. Would highly recommend using her and would do it again for sure!
