Denis was a superb host! He was great at engaging with the tour group with both historical information regarding Cape Town wine lands but also with general humor. Each of the wine estates had their own personality and great wine and scenic views. A memorable experience for sure and one that I will always remember.

Well , the experience was unique and exciting , we could see and learn a lot about the history of wines , we went to 4 vineyards , but in my opinion the best was Paarl , as it has very good quality wine varieties , the place is also cozy . The guide was also friendly and patient, the travel companions (group) as well.

What an experience! I learnt so much about the wine making process and the heritage of each wine estate / farm that we visited for the day. Donovan was our tour guide and he lived up to expectation. He oozed experience and has great wealth of knowledge about the wine. He captured the Essence of African Story telling through the wine. So many takeaways from the experience. On top of that he made my birthday extra special, I came on the tour with my handbag small enough to fit a cellphone and left with a box of wine, wine holder, new friends and a lifetime of memories. Highly recommend the tour for local and international visitors.
