Group Experience Drakenstein

Franschhoek

Activity Description

Please note groups exceeding 30 guests cannot be accommodated on this service.

Groups experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Simonsberg Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards, stopping at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates. The itinerary covers up to four wine estates in the Simonsberg Valley, each with a character as rich and individual as the wines they produce. Several of the wine estates on the itinerary boast world-class restaurants and a lunch or picnic stop can be included upon request.

Please Note: The tour is strictly a wine tasting experience and does not host birthdays or bachelor/bachelorette parties.

Wine tasting fees at each estate (between R35 and R75 per person) and lunch are not included in the tour price and need to be settled with the estates directly.

FORMAT:
Groups will visit up to 3 wine estates in the Simonsberg Valley over the course of 4 to 5 hours by double-decker tram and open-air tram-bus.
