Owner description: Wine tasting, Garden Route, Spring Flower Tours. South Africa
Reviewed 15 February 2015

We have just returned home to the UK from the most wonderful holiday in South Africa, and the main contributor to our amazing holiday was Keith van der Schyff of Redwood Tours, who offered amazing personal service throughout our holiday. The advice and assistance that Keith gave us in arranging the holiday beforehand was invaluable, and his knowledge of the country is excellent and he very quickly understood exactly the type of holiday and accommodation we wanted. Then “on the ground”, Keith accompanied us as our guide and driver throughout our tour of the wine regions, Cape Town and ultimately to the Eastern Cape (via Plettenburg and the Garden Route) for our game reserve safaris. Keith was always punctual and struck the perfect balance between imparting his boundless knowledge and leaving us to just enjoy the sights around us. He is an absolute gentleman with a very dry wit and a calm and reassuring manner, and his driving is extremely safe and comfortable. He is very well-known, certainly in the wine regions, where every winery we visited greeted him with affection. All-in-all, we are really happy to highly recommend Redwood Tours and Keith van der Schyff to anyone wanting a memorable and truly stunning holiday/tour in South Africa. We will certainly book again with Keith on all our future trips to Cape Town, as we were very impressed.

I contacted Redwood tours at short notice, looking for a private wine tour in the Stellenbosch area as part of our honeymoon trip to South Africa. Taryn organised a fantastic day, visiting 4 wineries and having lunch at a fifth. As i had mentioned it was our honeymoon, she tailored the tour to be really romantic so in addition to great wine, we had fantastic locations and at each one she would nip off and leave us alone occasionally to spend some time in just each others company with beautiful views and settings. As if that wasn't enough she picked us up at the hotel with a bouquet of flowers for my Wife, and throughout the day had organised a scavenger hunt! At each winery she hid little clues and tasks for a letter puzzle in the final winery! It was such a nice and thoughtful touch. Shes great fun to spend a day with and very knowledgable about the wines and the area.

I would absolutely recommend Redwood tours and a big thanks to Taryn for making me look good as the romantic Husband!

We booked a full day wine tour whilst we were in Stellenbosch. Keith turned up propmtly. The car was clean and seated six of us comfortably. Keith was an amazing guide. Friendly, informative and fun to be with. He made an advance lunch reservation at La Petite Ferme for us. We had an amazing day out. He began the day with a historical tour of Stellenbosch which was unexpected and much appreciated. Each winery we visited was different but very impressive.
We would definitely recommend this company to our friends!

Keith, runs this tour company. We booked for a days wine tour, including lunch stop over. we were definitely not disappointed, Keith was extremely knowledgeable about the vineyards and Stellenbosch region. We visited three vineyards and had lunch at one of them. The tastings were informative/educational. Keith also took us through the town of Stellenbosch giving us a full history tour as well. We also went to where Nelson Mandela was released from his last prison. We had a full days trip being picked up from our hotel in Cape Town and dropped off back at the hotel in the evening. A true gentleman and good tour guide. Keith undertakes all sorts of tours so check him out..

We spent a full day with Taryn, and couldn't be more pleased. From the value to the expertise everything was above and beyond. Taryn customized our day based on our requests and preferences; including our request for a picnic lunch. We spent an amazing day with great company and wine. Prompt and accommodating, I would HIGHLY recommend the tour!
