Customer Reviews

Absolutely amazing experience! Such a great way to see Cape Towns sights with wonderful service. - Monica Chiappini


Fantastic day out, really well organised. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Managed to do 5 vineyards that day without too much rushing around, you just have to be organised and have a plan! Hope to return one day and do another line. - Matthew Oliver-Mayho


Loved the tour - so precise with the timing! - Cheryl Court


Really loved the wine tram and beautiful wine farms. Very reasonably priced and excellent quality lunch. Felt that the staff could have pushed us harder to buy wine following the tastings. All in all, wonderful experience and glorious countryside. Would happily recommend. - Kerry Bertram


Thanks for the experience! Very happy and satisfied! - Alan Rodaro
