What people are saying about Cape Winelands

We had an excellent day, visiting 6 vineyards. We started the day with a wine and fudge pairing tasting (yum!) and a gin tasting, and ended the day at Boschendal with a premium wine tasting, and a wine and chocolate pairing tasting (even more yum!)! Would 100% recommend this, the artisanal chocolates were incredible with the wine. We mostly had the estate(cheaper) wines and would recommend spending a bit more for the premium wines, as we found out at Boschendal, this does make quite a difference!

My husband and I had a wonderful day out visiting the wineries. We would like to thank all the staff, especially the tour guides and drivers for their lively, helpful and friendly service. We will definitely be back to do the other routes. Thank you again aand best wishes to all.

We had a great time on Wine Tram Activity. Went to 4 different wineries and had a great time in each one. Very generous pours during wine tasting so get ready to stay tipsy. Also met a great group of people to hang out with so don’t be afraid to go solo.

Brilliant trip. Great guides and awesome wine stops. Runs to schedule perfectly and you can set your own visit schedule.

A great trip with easy travel to and from Cape Town.
