Know More about this tour

Leave Cape Town behind and head off by luxury minivan to the Stellenbosch wine region famous for its Mediterranean climate and fertile soils that help to produce millions of liters of wine each year.

Your first stop of the day is a small Stellenbosch wine estate called Muratie, much loved by locals, with bags of charm. Its traditional cellars are typified by ramshackle walls and worn paintings -- adding to its rustic charm. Sample the estates fortified wine and locally produced chocolate a winning combination!

With your expert guide, hop back in your minivan and continue your journey northwest to the Paarl wine region, home to leading wine producers like Fairview and Nederburg. Stop at the Fairview Wine Estate and tour its large cellars, trying out several of their famed white wines and cheeses.

Lunch takes place in the gourmet capital of South Africa Franschhoek roughly 5 miles (8 km) away. Your private guide will point out the best sidewalk cafes and restaurants, and then leave you to enjoy lunch at your own expense.

In the early afternoon your tour continues to the La Motte or Haute Cabriere wine estate , another notable Franschhoek vineyard set high up in the Helderberg mountain range. The views from here are simply incredible, with surrounding vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. Soak up the views and sample the estates fine wines, leaning about the slow ripening of grapes in mountain viticulture.

Your last wine estate visit is Boschendal, one of South Africas oldest wine producers, with a wine-making heritage that dates back to the 17th century.

    Jacobus our guide was very knowledgable and took us to some really interesting winery’s. Although a long day it proved to be very well worth while and we were pleased to concentrate on the tastings and pairings rather than spending lots of time looking at barrels of wine sitting in different cellars. Definitely a 5 star trip.

    The private winelands tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Liezel, shared so many cool pieces of information throughout the day and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. The wineries themselves were so beautiful. We loved every one of the four we visited. We were also huge fans of the fact that one included a cheese pairing with its tasing, while another included a chocolate pairing. We'd recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town - the experience is a must. We were sad to leave when our trip was over, but were happy to be bringing back a few bottles of excellent wine. Thanks for a wonderful day, Liezel!

    JP was a superb tour guide with excellent insights into the wines as well as deep history of the area. He picked us up on time in a shiny new van and expertly drove us to our destinations, which Clare had carefully adjusted to our requests in advance. He kept us on schedule without pressure and returned us safely home at the end of a wonderful day. We highly recommend this tour company when visiting Cape Town.

    We were 4 adults on a private full day tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable about all things South Africa and the 4 wineries he selected were beautiful and very different. We loved them all. His lunch suggestion in Franschhoek was great too. It’s a fantastic day and definitely worth choosing a PRIVATE tour.

    Our guide Liezel was so cool.
    Wine estates could’ve been a little more famous/interesting. But hey! The best was saved for last.

    Leizel made our experience one to remember. She was more than accommodating to us and our kids on the tour and her knowledge of the area made for a relaxing, but once-in-a-lifetime memory for our entire family. Thank you!

    We had an excellent guide who was able to let us personalize out trip and spend the time doing what we enjoyed rather than rushing from place to place just to check them off. Consequently we awere able to tour the Stellenbosch Museum and really spend some quality time there - it is fascinating. We also enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Coopmanhuijs Hotel which has excellent food and service.

    Our guide was fantastic she was soo knowledgable and friendly. My friends had soo much fun and took lovely pictures at the vineyard and the wine tasting was very good. I would recommend people to try this tour because you get our of the city and see other areas!

    We were met by Andrew at the cruise terminal in Cape Town in a new people carrier. Andrew was very knowledgable and tailored the trip to meet our needs. He gave us time for lunch at a restaurant, which he booked, then with time for shopping. His knowledge on wines, vines and production was superb. We spent a full day in his company, no rush to get us back.
    Would highly recommend this trip and Andrew. A memorable day in a beautiful part of South Africa.
