We only had one full day in Stellenbosch and so the half day chauffeur drive service was perfect for us so that we could enjoy the tastings. All of my emails with questions were promptly responded to in a very professional manor.

On the day we were collected from our hotel on time and the service was exactly what we wanted, we were lucky that the vineyards we visited were not busy and managed to fit in three tastings at Meerlust, Rust en Vrede and Lanzerac before we were dropped off at Tokara for our lunch reservation. I had recommendations and an idea of where we wanted to taste but the driver (I'm sorry I can't remember his name) also had plenty of suggestions.

Would highly recommend and will certainly book again for when we are back in the area.

My husband and I did the Full Day Wine and Gourmet Tour with Elmar, we booked a small group tour but were actually the only ones on it...bonus!! The day was fantastic and totally exceeded our expectations. If anyone is going on this tour....don't eat breakfast beforehand! The food we ate on the day was truly amazing and the wine tasting was great and there was always plenty to try. We visited three different Estates and a different one for lunch. Absolutely loved this and learnt a lot about wine whilst enjoying tasting it! Thank you Elmar for a great day.

On our honeymoon in South Africa, we booked the half day cheese, chocolate and wine tour. It was perfect, highly informative and most of all LOADS OF FUN. Trekking around Franschhoek with Aylmer, exploring the different wineries and learning about wine, the process and more about the region has been an absolute pleasure. Thank you Aylmer!
