This was our first trip to S. Africa and after much research, it seemed best to stay in Cape Town and make 2 one-day trips for wine tasting. After discovering "Happy Holiday", we confirmed this plan and hired from them a private car & driver. This allowed us to reserve only one hotel and avoid hotel hopping as the wine... More

Taken on a full day group wine tour by John's very friendly and knowledgeable wife. We left Cape Town by train in the morning and she collected us from Stellenbosch train station with our 3 week trip luggage. The full day group consisted of six people, plus we picked up another two in the afternoon that were just taking part... More

We spent my husband's birthday on a full day small group tour with John and he provided us with a very memorable day. He took us to some beautiful vineries where we sampled some truly excellent vines and stopped at a lovely place for lunch where they provided us with celebratory sparkling wine. What a surprise! He also accommodated our... More

Dear Angela Thank you for your kind review of your tour. It was my pleasure to host you in the Winelands and I hope that you enjoyed your entire experience in Southern Africa.

It was a very late reservation request from me for 6 people for a private wine tour & I was a little concerned that my expectations were perhaps set too high. John was amazing, confirming his services promptly despite the short notice. From the minute he collected us from our hotel, there was no doubt that you were dealing with... More

My husband and I had a great day with John. He picked us up from our guest house and drove us to Stellenbosch. We went to 5 different wineries and tasted over 22 wines. John is very personable and told us a lot about the areas, wines and wineries. We definitely saw more with John than we would have if... More

John from Happy Holiday was just wonderful. There were 8 of us - two tween kids and 6 adults. He has a wealth of knowledge on SA as well as wines. He took the kids for a cheese tasting while the adults did a master wine tasting at the first vineyard. He fit in a chocolate tasting for the kids... More

Thanks to John for his planning and suggestions and Janet for sharing her knowledge; it all made for a fantastic day out. Not only did we get to visit some stunning wineries and explore the tastes of Stellenbosch but we got some wonderful detail about the history of the Cape too. Would highly recommend.
