Tour guide was phenomal. He was very knowledgable about the city and areas keeping us entertained on route to the farms. The farms were immaculate and we were treated to pairings with cheese and the second farm was with Biltong. Much larger selection of wines were presented for tasting than we expected. Friendly staff, would do it again. A must for a visit to Cape Town. Great value for money

It was a great experience overall. Just need to be mindful of time. We arrived at our last tasting late and didn't have enough time to experience the place properly. Otherwise the experience was well worth it. Our guide was kind and very informative.

We had a great time with Edward on this tasting tour. We visited two excellent wineries and samples 10 different wines. Pick up was on time and Edward provided great information and insights. Highly recommended.

Your guide was extremely cool and friendly and we enjoyed the whole duration of the tour. Excellent service even with minimizing risk of Covid-19

Such a fun & amazing tour. My guide was punctual, caring & took the best pictures. Definitely doing this again!
