Leaving Cape Town you'll start the day with a visit to Paarl and the spectacular Paarl Valley. Here you can enjoy a wine tasting and cellar tour at one of the local estates.
The tour continues to the beautiful village of Franschhoek, deep in the Cape Winelands, surrounded by vineyards, verdant valleys and rolling mountains. Fantastic Cape Dutch Architecture remains preserved in the town thanks to restrictions that help retain the spirit of the original Huguenot settlers. We will stop in Franschhoek for lunch (for guest's own expense) and another wine tasting at an excellent wine estate.
Then it's on to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country's wine region. The final wine tasting will take place here at one of the well-known estates. The red grape variety Pinotage is unique to the area, but all the classics are represented here: Shiraz, Chardonnay and Semillon.
With the air scented with sweet grapes and the trees softly swaying in the wind, the Cape Winelands is a wine lover's paradise and a truly relaxing way to spend the day!
Please note: this tour may run in reverse.
