This tour showed us some of the amazing countryside that exists not far from Cape Town. The scenery was amazing as were the wineries that Ivan took us to. We were so impressed allround.
Elegant Country Tours — both guide and driver — was the perfect due to escort us around 3 magnificent and carefully chosen wineries. We couldn’t have learned more or enjoyed the day together quite as much if not for thes two gentlemen and their wealth of knowledge. All day they were senttive to our needs.
Our day in the wine region with our guide Fanny was wonderful. Fanny was the best guide possible. She shared lots of wonderful information about the region, the history of South Africa, etc. It was a delight. She even modified the tour for us a little when we really wanted to do an olive oil tasting at one of the wineries. It was a great day and one I would highly recommend. The only sad part was how expensive it is to ship wine back to the US. Enjoy it while you are there because the wines were amazing.
We enjoyed this tour of the wine country more than we expected. Each winery that we visited gave us personalized attention and catered to our wine preferences. Our guide was helpful and friendly, and gave us a good explanation of the day as well as good insights into the history and culture of the wine country.
Last Wednesday my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of taking the private Wine Land tour with Steven Andrews. It is simply the best tour that we can remember ever having in the past 20 years that we have been traveling/sightseeing. Steven was extremely knowledgeable and informative. It was thoroughly enjoyable talking with him, learning from him about the wines and wineries, the culture and the history of this country, and getting an understanding of South Africas current status and how she arrived here. It was a completely enjoyable and pleasant way to spend the day. We know of no higher recommendation to give him. We have friends visiting Cape Town next year we will heartily recommend this tour to them.
No one will have any regret on taking this tour except for its ending.
We had such a WONDERFUL time on this Winelands tour! Leonard, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating! Our wine tastings overall were great...really enjoyed Anthonij Rupert and Vrede En Lust wineries and our sommeliers were excellent! We definitely will leverage this service again!
We had booked this ahead and didnt really know what to expect, as this was the first private wine tour we had taken. We had wanted something more personal than the typical group tour and booked this particular trip because it covered some of the key wine making regions we wanted to find out more about.
Our guide, Leonard, arrived punctually at 9.30 and immediately made us feel welcome, settling us into the car and outlining what we were going to be doing that day. Leonard was the perfect choice for us and we feel very privileged and lucky to have had him as our guide. He took the time to listen to what we liked and didnt like when it came to wine and gauged perfectly the choice of vineyards and their price points to suit our tastes and budget. His obvious skill and expertise allowed him to tailor the day for us to get the most out of it as we got to know each other on our way to the first vineyard. His choice of lunch venue Le Petite Ferme was inspired, we had the best lunch of our holiday that day. In fact, Id go as far as to say it was this skill and knowledge that ensured we had one of the most memorable and rewarding days of the entire trip.
Take the time to stop off in Stellenbosch for a little while too, it is beautiful and well worth the stopover.
If you are considering this trip, I would highly recommend it. It opened our eyes to the beauty of the region and the joys of SA wines, some of which we we would not have discovered otherwise.
We had a really enjoyable Winelands tour with Leonard our guide. We visited four wineries, each located in beautiful scenic locations, and had a very enjoyable time doing the wine tastings there. Thanks to Leonard's extensive knowledge about wine, and interesting information about South Africa, we both felt that we learnt a great deal as well as having a great time. We had lunch at a beautiful restaurant called La Petite Ferme. Leonard was an excellent guide and driver, we also appreciated his courtesy and punctuality, and so we have no reservations in recommending this tour with Leonard.
The tour was comprehensive and our guide, Leonard, was extremely knowledgeable about wine growing and the various vineyards and vintages. He listened carefully to what we wanted from the tour and then tailored it our expectations. The pacing was perfect and his suggestions all were well received. We also included some sightseeing at our request. The car was clean and comfortable and Leonard proved to be good and safe driver, Thoroughly recommend this tour.
We arranged this trip in order to not only sample some of the local wines for the first time, but to also get out of the city and see some of the countryside. The day long excursion was a resounding success on both counts. Our guide Shireen Endley picked us up promptly at our hotel in an upscale car and drove us to three wineries: Fairview in the Paarl area where local cheeses were paired with the wines, and Vrede en Lust in the Franschhoek area where the wines were paired with a various chocolates. We also enjoyed a delightful lunch at this second vineyard, where Shireen had worked in the past. She was the perfect guide in that she provided a rich commentary of not only the background of the wine regions, but also of the past social structure and impact of the past apartheid society and the changes that have occurred since. She introduced us to the locals at the wineries, but then allowed us to interact with these folks free of constant oversight. We also visited a Saturday market in Franschhoek, strolled through the magnificent setting of the Delaire Graff Estate, and made a final stop at another winery, which was unfortunately not available due to a private event that was being held. Nevertheless our intrepid guide furnished us with sacks of dried game meat which were to be paired with the wines. Again, it was fabulous day, thanks to Shireen -- spectacular scenery, great wines, pleasant conversation. Highly recommend this trip -- one of the best we have ever taken.
