We had a private wine tour with Taryn for the whole day. She picked us up from the hotel and brought us back after the tour. We were taken to the 5 different wine yards. She gave us a lot of information about the places we visited and wines we tasted. As she keeps track of their customers opinions she will bring you to the places with the best rating. For the lunch she can offer several restaurants. Even when you have special wishes like us. All together it was a wonderful day. Taryn is a very lovely person which made us feel very comfortable.

This is our 2nd wine tour with Keith, we did one 18months ago when on holiday in SA, we loved it so much that we wanted to do another one with him on our next visit and it certainly lived up to the 1st tour.
Keith is very knowledgeable not just about wine but about the area and the country's history so you ll get a wine tour and a history lesson for the same price ( in a fun way!).
We have recommended redwood tours to a few friends that have visited SA and we will keep recommending it to anybody else wanting to have a memorable wine tasting experience. Thanks again Keith for a a fantastic day in your beautiful stellenbosch, we will see you on our next visit!!!

We had such an amazing experience with Taryn in one of the premier wine regions in South Africa. We visited a variety of vineyards and our guide was very knowledgable and easy going, all the while being responsive to our tastes and preferences. Highly recommend Redwood Tours for your wine tasting experience.

My three daughters and I were on holiday in Cape Town and wanted to tour the Stellenbosch wineries. I found Redwood Tours on-line and chose them because their website said they would pick us up at our door. Taryn met us at 9:30 and took us on the most amazing wine tour you could ever imagine. We had an incredible time because of her knowledge, passion and absolutely wonderful personality! She was so personable and friendly that the girls and I felt like we had known her for years. If you are in the Cape Town area and want the best wine tour ever you need to contact Redwood Tours. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

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.
