Very well organised. We were picked up on time from our hotel and the driver, Marshall was great fun! The wine estate staff were very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. It was a fantastic day out and a very good way to get around the different vineyards.

An enjoyable experience visiting 6 wineries on the Northern Route during our stay in Stellenbosch. Colin, our host and driver, was friendly and a wealth of information about the wineries we visited.

We went on the Northern Route Tour, our tour guide was Marshall, he was absolutely excellent! Made the tour that much more memorable

Everything went perfectly, very reliably and a great experience.

Great easy transport to two of the best wine farms
