Customer Reviews

I love it, the attention of the driver very funny and polite. Both cities are stunning and the wine is delicious. What I would have like it is to have a little tour around the wineries not just tastings just to know more about the history of the winery and the production process. In Mendoza is very common to do it like that. But anyway the service was excellent! - Vanessa Meza


We had a great informative and tasty trip into the wine region with Kobus! Really enjoyed all the places and the delicious lunch and treats along the way. Thank you ? - Tamara Miles


There are many companies offering 1 day wine tours (number of hours on tours does vary) around Cape Town and after studying decided to go with Wineflies. The tour itself consisting of going around 4 wineries all of different size with their own history to tell. We had an Air BNB in Camps Bay and the minibus collected us from right outside our location. Our Tour driver (Lord V) was attentive and had a considerable wine knowledge which he shared informatively. The whole day was great fun and all the wineries that we visited were in stunning locations. Along with the wine tasting the first offered cheese and biscuits, the second a dried meat option with the third including a high quality lunch overlooking the vines and local mountain scenery.The last wine tour included a selection of chocolates. We probably had one of the last tours before the Covid-19 virus put a stop to the tours. So wish all the people at the tour operator all the best during these difficult times. Once back up and running this tour represents great value and comes highly recommended. - Barbara & David Houghton


Absolutely amazing wine tour to Stellenbosch & Franschhoek! Marcus was absolutely fantastic and did a great job in introducing us into the great craftmanship of wine making. We visited mostly small, boutique wine estates (I absolutely loved Mitre's Edge, where we also met the owner herself!) where you usually don't get to visit with other tour operators! We had a great lunch and some free time to stroll along Franschhoek, which is beautiful! Absolutely great value for your money and I'd recommend WINE FLIES to anyone visiting Cape Town, and not planning to spend some nights in the winelands but still planning in a day trip. This trip will show you all the good spots, great wines, delicious food and good company! I travelled alone and met so many nice people on the trip that make you feel welcome from the start! :) Highly recommended! DANKIE Marcus for the lovely day! :) - Mareike Schumm


What a great day.I have done other wine tours in the region before and this day tops them all. I loved the added bonus of the cheese, chocolate and biltong tastings. - Margot Kalinowsky + 2
