Combine wine tastings, cheese tastings, and a cellar visit on this action-packed half-day tour of Stellenbosch. Save time figuring out public transport schedules by having round-trip transport from Cape Town included. It’ll be the ultimate day of convenience as wine tastings are included. Venture into Cape Winelands and visit two wine farms for wine and cheese tastings.

The Village Museum is well worth a visit if you are in Stellenbosch. The museum preserves articles of local historical interest. There is a small entrance fee which gives access to four buildings close to the museum. The houses were built between 1709 and 1850. Each has furniture of the period and is tended by a lady dressed in period costume. They give you a brief overview of the property and answer questions.

This museum shows buildings in and outside of the Dutch colonial period. It shows how colonialists lived at that time. In several of the houses is a guide, who gives short explanations in English or Afrikaans. I was really impressed by this museum.

The 4 houses are closely situated making it an easy walk. They provide a quick overview of life in Stellenbosch, stretching from the 1600's through to the Victorian era. Took us about 1.5 hours to see all 4. The lady guides, dressed in period costume were informative and welcoming. The addition of stories of the slave-trade provided a sobering balance to the South African/British story. It is a disturbing, but critical reminder of the violence and injustice that built our society. Definitely worth a visit.

Four period houses provided a glimpse into life in 18th and 19th centuries. Well preserved and well presented.

Interesting guide to the history and domestic life of Stellenbosch over the 18th and 19th centuries, illustrated through the restoration of four period houses and a gunpowder magazine. There are very helpful and friendly guides in each of the sites within the museum complex. The lobby area has a series of detailed information boards.
