This was really fun and so interesting with a knowledgeable guide like Danélle. She arrived early to pick us up and was full of energy from the get go. We were laughing long before the wine flowed. She explained a great deal about wine making, environmental conditions across wine producing regions and the history of the area. Can't wait to do another tour.

If you are planning to do any wine tours in Franschhoek or Stellenbosch, I can only recommend La Rochelle Tours with Danelle. She absolutelly was spot on on what we liked, asked questions in the morning and from there she decided where we would go for tasting. As we don't like the big commercial wine estates, we didn't book the Winetram. Absolutely horrifying, so many people. So we were lucky and we were the only ones on the tour, which can take normally up to 8 people I believe. Danelle is absolute fun, she explains very good and lets you snif before you taste. We did learn a lot, and not in a boring way. Can recommend this company to anyone who likes personal and being listened to.

Dear John, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We really do appreciate it and i will be sure to forward this to Danelle as she is, once again, busy with guests - no doubt sniffing and slurping their way through a day of wine tasting. Thank you. Johan

We did the full day mystery tour with pickup from Camps Bay in Cape Town to visit Franschoek and Stellenbosch. Alymer was our guide. Alymer showed up early, had a smile on his face from the start, and was accommodative our entire trip. We had a blast learning about the various vineyards visited and South African history. The wine and the food selected by Alymer were top notch. His humor kept us laughing the whole day. We would recommend this tour 10 times out of 10. After spending time In Franshoek and Stellenbosch we would probably recommend spending more time in Stellenbosch for first time visitors. The town is slightly larger with more restaurants and shops to peruse. Thank you, Alymer!

Danélle, our La Rochelle wine guide, lead my wife and I on a fantastic journey through the incomparable wine country of Franschhoek. While we love wine, neither of us has spent the time to really understand it the way a true connoisseur would. As a result, we were hoping to get educated while exploring Franschhoek's beautiful wineries. Danélle and La Rochelle were a perfect fit for us. She was incredibly knowledgeable and able to share her knowledge with us in a way that we could easily grasp. She took us to beautiful vineyards with great wines and fantastic food. We were well received at every winery and her connection and familiarity with the staff seemed to benefit us greatly. She talked us through each of the wines and explained the nuances and personalities of each in a way that made sense to us. She was funny and entertaining and, at the end of the day, we found that we had not only had a great time and learned a lot, but we had made a friend. We highly recommend La Rochelle to anyone looking for a great day in the vineyards of Franschhoek!
