Customer Reviews

Thanks a lot for the wonderful tour and special thanks for Etienne who was an excellent tour guide. Beautiful sceneries and nice wine experimental experience. - Kimmo Hottinen


Korbus was the best! He made us laugh, took us to great wineries and all around showed us a great time. I would definitely recommend this trip to my friends! Thank you! - Shelby Chessman


Thank you so much Wine Flies Wine Tours for such an amazing experience! The whole day was everything we hoped for and more. Without you we wouldn't have been able to visit such amazing boutique vinyards and taste all the delicious wines they've offered. We've learned so much and felt so welcome in every vinyard we've visited. And thank you as well for your help, as we booked last minute via mail even after the tour was closed and went that extra mile to help us and include us. I wouldn't doubt to recommend you and we hope to come back to Cape Town and join your tour again. Thank you! - Miriam Carbia


We had an amazing experience with Wine Flies. Our guide Kobus was incredible and really went above and beyond our expectations. He was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. The farms we visited were all quite different in terms of size and feel. They were all quite lovely though, and I would happily visit each one again. I can't wait for my next trip to South Africa, and to go on another one of their tours. - Scott Silkensen


Relaxing and informative experience, great sceneries. - Gilberto Rossetti
