We can really recommend a wine tour with a wine guide. La Rochelle Tours didn't disappoint us! Our guide Aylmer was great! Not only an expert at wines we got a short tourist-tour aswell. Thank you!

Transfer from Franschhoek to Cape Town International. Good service and price. I have not tried their wine tours, but chatting to Johan en route to the airport it was clear he is knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

We had a great day touring the Franschhoek wineries. The value was excellent and the pours were outrageously generous. Great day and highly recommend. We also used La Rochelle tours for airport and Cape Town transfers...would definitely use them again.

Had a great day out with Aylmer as out personal guide, taught us lots of local South African history as well as how to taste, smell and appreciate the different aromas and tastes between white, rose and reds and sparkling wines. Visited 3 vineyards and stopping at another for lunch with breathtaking views of the area of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Thank you for a brilliant day and I would definitely recommend this tour, or try with the cheese and chocolates. I booked this from the UK. My favourite was the sparkling blush.

We did not want to participate in a guided group tour and had already a plan which vineyards to visit. So we booked an individual 6h tour in Stellenbosch. Francois was a perfect guide. Although we already knew where to go and we've just booked a driver he told us some interesting insights, always friendly with a lot of humour. Perfect solution for a tasting tour if you don't want to Drink&Drive!
