We called a few tour guides in advance - and we chose John, because we felt that he was somehow more into wine. What a good decision: On our tour we found out, that John was working as a sommelier before. So he is a real wine expert. That was worth so much! He knows all the wine farms. He knows who makes what und why. He can explain all different types. And the most exciting thing: After a few glasses, he knows what you like. That helps so much - because you have many options on one day in Stellenbosch! And what you need to know as well: John is a really nice guy! It is so nice and easy to have him around. We had a lovely und very pleasureful day with him. His car is spacious und very comfortable. In the end we are sure: We can't imagine a better tour guide than him for Stellenbosch. That was the perfect choice for us! THANKS A LOT!…

This was our third trip to South Africa and we have thankfully had the opportunity on each occasion to take a day out to visit the wine estates through the fabulous Wine Escapes and fantastic host Lieze... We were picked up from our hotel on each occasion (feels very personalised in a small group) and then taken to carefully selected wine estates. John and Lieze are happy for you to suggest any specific wine estates you would like to visit and will add them into the intinerary if possible. On this occasion, we visited DeMorgenzon, Stark-Conde and Anthonij Rupert with a stop for lunch at Delair. Each wine estate offered stunning views and excellent wine tasting. I was slightly nervous as it was my recommendation to the other 5 people in our party however all said it was an amazing day and one of the highlights of their trip. I hope to get the opportunity again in the near future…

It was a beautiful day of touring wineries and learning about the history of wine making in the region. Our tour guide, Liezel, was awesome and super knowledgeable as a wine maker herself. One of our favorite things we did while visiting Cape Town. Next time we probably would skip the chocolate pairing as the chocolate over powered the wine at the last winery but hey we wanted to try that and you live and learn.…

Review of: Exclusive Franschhoek and Paarl Wine Tour
We did a customised wine tour around the Stellenbosch, Franshoek, Paarl area visiting 3 vineyards (Avondale, Hartenberg and Lievland) and lunch out at Tokara. John was very good in listening to the type of wines we like in Europe and then choosing appropriate vineyards to take us to. He was extremely knowledgeable in choosing the wines to taste and helped us to learn a great deal more about South African wines (and South Africa in general!) We had a terrific day out with John, the cost was great value for money and we both felt that we'd had one of the best days we experienced in South Africa! We'd highly recommend a tour out with John and would definitely do another wine tour next time we're in South Africa.…
