Itinerary
Stop At:  
Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch is a university town in South Africa's Western Cape province. It's surrounded by the vineyards of the Cape Winelands and the mountainous nature reserves of Jonkershoek and Simonsberg. The town's oak-shaded streets are lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Cape Dutch architecture gives a sense of South Africa's Dutch colonial history, as do the Village Museum's period houses and gardens.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
Helshoogte
Mauntain Pass, one of the most loved and travelled roads in the Western Cape, links Stellenbosch with the Drakenstein Valley, a scenic pass that transports one over the saddle that separates Simonsberg from the Jonkershoekberge and wends its way past fruit farms and vineyards en route.
Stop At:  
Franschhoek
Founded in 1688 by French Huguenots, our scenic gem nestles in a rich and fertile valley, between glorious towering mountains, right in the beautiful Heart of the Cape Winelands.

Had a brilliant day travelling in a small group of 5 people to 3 vineyards varying from a large company to a small family business. Our guide, Dave, was very helpful and informative and ensured a good day was had by all. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wants to get out into the beautiful countryside and sample a range of the local wines.
