After deliberating over all the possible tour options we decided to book the mystery tour and just take the day as it came - best decision ever! Danelle is a fabulous tour guide; very charismatic, knowledgeable about every part of the area and wine making / drinking process and made the day one to remember (well, at least until lunch time anyway!!!)
We visited 3 vineyards, sampled many great wines paired perfectly with different foods and got the opportunity to taste local olive oils at our lunch stop.
Can’t recommend this trip highly enough - we’ll worth it. We learnt so much and have a whole new understanding of wine drinking now.

My husband and I had the private wine tour with Danelle. We though that we already knew a little bit about wine but we learnt so much on our tour. Danelle is a fabulous hostess ( and enthusiastic photographer) and she took us to two wonderful wineries. Would highly recommend this activity as a “ must do” in Franschhoek

We booked onto this tour at short notice while staying in Stellenbosch. What a great day! We were collected promptly from our hotel by Aylmer who was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable about all the wines we tasted. He took us to three vineyards where tasted some really top quality wines which were paired with some lovely food samples. We booked as a couple and were joined on the tour by a lovely family group of 5. All in all it was a lovely relaxing day enjoying the wine and food from the area.

We spent the day with Alymer on the Chocolate, Cheese, Olive, and Wine Tour. He was personable and very knowledgeable in all areas. We tasted about 14 wines, plus olive oil, cheeses, and chocolate. His sense of humor and professionalism made this the perfect day in Wine Country. I recommend this tour highly.

We booked a half day wine tasting tour and we were collected at our guesthouse by Dee. It was a personalised, tailored tour to 2 wineries producing the kind of wines we enjoy.
Dee was so informative and we definitely learned a great deal. All in all a wonderful experience which we shall never forget

My wife and I booked a group mystery tour and when we were collected my Alymer at our hotel he informed us we were the only tourists and we ended up with a private tour. Alymer was brilliant. He worked us out pretty quickly and customised the day exactly to our tastes. He was great company and we have such good fun. Everything we consumed was lovely and we left having learned so much about wines, food and South African culture. We’d thoroughtly recommend him and would go back time and time again - we hopefully will! Andy and Elena. Thanks Alymer, you made the day!
