  • Private Full-Day Wine Tour and Tasting from Cape Town

    1. Private Full-Day Wine Tour and Tasting from Cape Town

    Discover the picturesque wine-growing region of the Cape. You can choose from more than 100 wineries with different wines, including the typical South African Pinotage and Chenin Blanc. Depending on your interests and individual taste in wines, you'll have the opportunity to visit 2 to 4 wine estates in the towns Paarl, Franschhoek, and Stellenbosch (e.g. Morgenster, Vergelegen, Boschendal, and Fairview), with wine tasting included. Enjoy a short stroll through the university town of Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, famous for its excellent university. In addition to wine tasting, you can visit a wine cellar as well as enjoy a tour through the city. On request, it is possible to stop for lunch (at your own expense) or organize a trip to Franschhoek – the “gourmet town” of South Africa. At the end of the tour, you will be taken back to your hotel.

    Mauritz, our driver/guide for the day picked us upon time and was very friendly and very knowledgeable. Not only about the wine areas but also about lots of the South African social and political history. He listened to our wine likes and dislikes (my wife only drinks white wine while I prefer red) and chose the wineries to visit with this in mind. He gave us good information on the areas we visited and also arranged the tastings so that both Ann and myself were fully satisfied with the types of wine available. The timings of the visits, tastings and lunch stop was well judged and made the day very relaxing. I would strongly recommend Mauritz as an English or German speaking guide for a day in the Winelands.
