What people are saying about Cape Winelands

Robbie was a fantastic host with so much knowledge and passion about what he does. We visited some fantastic wine farms that were smaller, family run and full of history. The wine selected for us was exceptional and varied. Our lunch was top notch - the burger was to die for! To finish our day we got to blend our own wine! We did pretty good . All in all a fabulous day with the wonderful Robbie!

Robbie was amazing!! So personable, extremely knowledgeable, and it was great spending the day with him As our guide. The wines he selected for us were perfect. I wish I could visit all the wine farms with Robbie.

Great winetour! Beautiful vineyards, good size group, great lunch, and the tour guide Robbie was hilarious and informative. Great value for money
