Get picked up at your central Cape Town hotel and begin your day trip into Western Cape wine country.

Visit the town of Paarl in the Paarl Valley, where you’ll visit a wine estate for a cellar tour and wine tasting session, along with winery stops in pretty Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. It’s second only to Cape Town as the oldest European settlement in the province, and where the region’s winemaking got its start.

The Pinotage grape is unique to South Africa, having been hybridized in the country, but it’s not the only wine you’ll taste. Other varietals are grown in South Africa, too, including Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay.

During your stops in Paarl and Stellenbosch, enjoy some free time to explore the towns on foot at your leisure.  After the last tasting of this relaxing day, head back to Cape Town aboard the vehicle. Please note that the order of stops may differ depending on the day.

We had a great day out visiting 3 wineries and having lunch in Stellenbosch. There were some very nice wines especially at the first one where each wine was accompanied by a different cheese. We also stopped briefly at Franschhoek which was also a nice little town. A very pleasant trip in a beautiful area.

Thoroughly enjoyed the wineries visited on this trip. Our guide, although slightly challenged with the English language, went out of his way to ensure that we had an enjoyable experience. We could have done without the 30 min stop in Stellenbosch. There was very little to see or do here.

The wineries were ok, particularly the first and last ones. The second was so so at best. Decent number of pours with cheeses to accompany the wines. The best part of the tours are the two towns, Stellenbosch and Franschoek. Both are lovely and so worth exploring. Wonderful and interesting shops, lots of arts, and great little coffee shops and restaurants. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Lovely way to spend a day if you are in CapeTown.

The tour was in English and German which worked well but made it harder for the group to interact. Eva, our guide, easily made the transition between the languages. Our group size was 10 (5 couples). Although we enjoyed Eva's commentary she did not try to find out anything about us so there was no tailoring of the conversation to topics of the group. There was also no explanation of why these 3 wineries were chosen. The tour ended sooner than we anticipated from the schedule we were given earlier in the day....Would have liked that extra time to explore the town of Stellenbosch.

We loved our guide Carola. She told us about the history of the region, anecdotes and south Africa in general. It was a well-balanced your with a stop in each of the wine regions and an opportunity to try some local cheeses and biltong. We also have 1.5 hours in Stellenbosch, which was great!

This tour is awesome! The guide picks you at your airport and brings you to 3 different wineries (in 3 different regions). Our guide, Carola, was friendly, explained every monument on the way and answered all of our questions. For lunch, she took us to a nice little town with plenty of restaurant options, amazing! Will recommend this tour to everyone that visits Cape Town!
