What an awesome day. We had Barnabas as a guide, and he was just lovely. We were in a group of 6 people and were picked up from our apartment rental at 9am then drove about 45 minutes out to our first vineyard. We ended up doing 2 vineyards in the morning and then stopped for lunch at a vineyard/distillery/Italian restaurant in Franshoek, which had gin flights and delicious pizza. Then we continued on to 2 more vineyards in the afternoon, including Fairview which we had heard a lot about from friends because of wine/cheese pairings. Another of the vineyards had red wine and biltong pairings - a favorite for my boyfriend. All in all, great value for your money, delicious wine, beautiful vineyards, a wonderful overall experience.

Our tour guide Yoyo was amazing. He talked us through the tour, the history and wine tasting lingo. He familiarized himself with our individual characters and interests and ensured that he accommodated as well as appeal to each of us within the tour. His driving was also very comfortable. We were very happy with the overall experience. It was definitely a highlight. I highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting the Cape.

The tour was very well organized and a nice experience. We had great tour guides. Ruben provided us with historical information and details about the wineries we visited, reducing the travel time.

Driver was awesome and knowledgeable. The vehicle was clean. It was raining but it didn’t change the experience.

We had a great time our tour guide Barnabas was the best ❤️ Thank you for a wonderful day
