Well organised tour, on time with the pick-up, feel save on the bus and enjoy the tour guide with all his interesting information while travelling from place to place. Everybody was very friendly and helpful on the bus and will definitely recommend this tour. I look forward to my next holiday in Cape Town and will be on the "red" bus again.

A highlight of the holiday. An excellent day trip; the hosts at each vineyard were great and there was plenty of wine to taste. Fantastic lunch stop at Franschhoek.

More wine samples than you can drink. Great commentary from guide. Good value lunch. Very comfortable bus. All around excellent full day out.

Great tour, well organized, good value for your money, the cometary along the route was most informative.
