Super fun tour with great highlights and a great guide (Bram). We tasted great wines and were also offered delicious culinary tastings of chocolate and savory platters. The price-performance ratio is really great here! I participated alone and had so much fun with the rest of the group. Can only recommend the tour to everyone.

The tour guide was funny, the coach was very comfortable. The first vineyard was the best!!! Enjoy the wine and chocolate pairing! The wine connoisseur was informed and very enthusiastic… at some point I even wanted to be a wine connoisseur. Absolutely incredible, the Rhebokskloof vineyard! The drive through the Cape Wine Lands was beautiful!

Had a very nice day, for all the first tasting was a real success! The 2nd is combined with a (payable by yourself) lunch at a fine restaurant. The 3rd is again on a wine farm, this one was fine but not as well arranged as the first. You share a table with the other participants at the 1st and 3rd. We had Brahm as a guide, we certainly know a lot and made it a pleasant day. You're back on the bus for about 40 minutes between the tastings, these go by fairly quickly
