If you would like to see a lot of wineyards and taste a beautiful selection of south african wine with a bunch of fun people go with the full day wine tour. We liked the way to travel with a groupe through the south african wine land and enjoying a day full of delicious wine and nice chats. - Nicole & Reto


What a wonderful day out visiting 4 superb wineries. We got to taste a totally amazing array of different wines. Our guide for the day was simply outstanding, he explained everything so well. Each of the places we visited were simply stunning. The lunch we had was also very good. We had more than enough time to enjoy each place. No rush to leave and no pressure to buy any wines. I would highly recommend doing this tour, you won't regret it - Douglas Waterson
