I worked with Vanessa and was so greatfull for her personal touch! All communication was as if I was talking to a friend. She followed through with all our needs, budget and crazy flexable schedule! I would recommend anyone using her or Richard as its not easy planning an African Safari from the states and being able to chat with these experts was so helpful! Thanks Vanessa!!!

Richard took my husband and me on a day tour of the vineyards and it was really fantastic from start to finish. He is so knowledgeable about the history of the area, about the wines and the homesteads you visit, and shares this knowledge freely in a genuinely engaging way throughout the tour. We tasted so many unbelievable wines and managed to purchase several excellent ones and also did an olive oil tasting which was an unexpected bonus! We had a delicious lunch along the way, and just generally enjoyed Richard's company the whole day. Highly recommended, you won't find a better way to experience the beautiful Cape vineyards than this.

We chose Richard and this wine tour after reading the great reviews and we were not disappointed. I contacted Richard directly and explained what we were looking to do and he arrange the day including lunch. Richard met us at our hotel in Cape Town and then took us on a quick tour of the city on our way to our first winery. His knowledge of the history was very interesting. Richard actually produces his own wine, so he has an excellent insights on the different ways of producing wine and he knows a lot of owners of the wineries. As a result we had a more personal experience, which made the day unique. We started by visiting a wine farm in Constantia and then headed towards the region of Stellenbosch to visit a further two, prior to a having a delicious lunch at 96 Winery Road Restaurant (owned by wine producers) and we then visited a couple more producers in the afternoon. All of the wine we tasted was amazing and we ended up buying 5 bottles. Richard also took us on tours of some of the wineries and talked us through the history which was very interesting. It was a full day and it was great fun. I would highly recommend Richard, the day was a lot more than just tasting great wine.

My wife, friend, and I were visiting from the US this past week and got a last minute recommendation to go on a tour with Richard from another friend from the US who had toured with him in the past. We were all very happy we took the advice and booked a one day wine tour with Richard. Richard is an expat from England who has lived in the Stellenbosch area for a couple decades now and knows the area exceptionally well. He brings his English charm and local knowledge to his tours which is great. He is also not only a wine expert, but a wine producer himself and has private label wines that he ferments and sells (btw they are excellent as well and you should taste his Viognier). It is the rare occasion that you can get a tour from an actual wine maker and we are thankful we seized the opportunity. We learned a great deal about wines as well as the Stellenbosch and greater Cape area. Definitely a must do tour!

Amazing chance to see, taste and learn. Richard gave us his personal view into the history and stellar present of South African wine. From the individually selected wineries to the delicious lunch to his deep knowledge of the region it was all fantastic. Even our teenage kids enjoyed seeing the beautiful area - maybe especially since Richard made sure they got to see animals (adorable dogs and amazing cheetahs). Thank you for a fantastic visit. Highly recommend Richard and team at Greatest Africa to anyone visiting.
