My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour with S.K. We dont really drink so the fact that we could still tour Franschhoek was great. We learnt so much history of the town from our guide. He was so knowledgeable. We got to ask lots of questions too. The chocolate part of the tour was great, lots of freebies and fun company. I would very much recommend the walking tour even if you do the wine track. - L. Bo

This was the best activity we did in Franschhoek. Learned so much about the town and it's history and our guide assisted with lunch and dinner reservations for our next three days. Everyone should take this tour. - Laurie crow
