What people are saying about Paarl

This tour was wonderful, our guide Bernadete Santana made this activity a tour not only of good tastings, but also included an insight into the local culture. Santana is very cultured and knows the region very well, she always has a detail to describe the places. He knows the history of the wineries, the names of the owners and where we can find beautiful landscapes. It was really worth doing this tour! We recommend.

Great tasting trip

The pick up, the car, the guide, everything was great. The only missing part is the guide should’ve been a bit more in depth knowledgeable about the area.
