We did the full day wine tour with Aylmer. He was absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgeable not just about wines but also the region which is steeped in history. He catered to myself who likes reds and also my partner who loves whites. We were taken to an amazing lunch at "Kitchen by Maison" which was the recommendation from Aylmer,... More

My wife & I did the La Rochelle full day wine tour which was a first rate tour & tasting. Danelle, our guide, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and is qualified to conduct the tastings herself rather than leave it to the winery representatives. During the day we visited 3 different, small wineries around Franscheok and throughout Danelle was a... More

Thanks Danelle (and Johan) for a great wine tour in Franschhoek. The best way to see some of the great wine farms in Franschhoek with an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended!

The two rules you must follow when Danelle is your guide. We spent two and a half days with D in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek - what a treat!!!! It was a joy for all of your senses as we enjoyed the wines, the gourmet foods and the majestic scenery. Being a local, Danelle was familiar with the wineries we visited,... More

Danelle is a gem and really made the experience. She is incredibly knowledgable about wine and despite having just met us, she made the experience feel very personalized. We learned quite a bit about the local wines (more here than on any tour we'd been on previously) and had an overall exceptional time on the half-day tour. I would definitely... More

… and this time with a group. A belated birthday holiday together with friends in May. And what an incredible day Danélle had organised for us, we SO enjoyed ourselves and no, it won't be the last time that's for sure. The wine from Maison travelled with us to Montusi Lodge where we managed to destroy it up to the... More

We spent a full day with Alymer and two other folks for a great wine tour. We visited three wineries and had a great stop for lunch as well. Alymer was right on time to pick us up and was a gem the whole day - he was funny, knowledgeable, and completely flexible with the group. It was an excellent... More

We are so pleased we found this company on Trip Advisor. We had a really fun, memorable and informative day. Poor Danelle! My partner loves oaky rich reds and I am a fan of bubbles and crisp whites. Somehow the lovely Danelle managed to shape a day that catered for both of us. She is obviously very knowledgeable and professional... More

Our half day wine tour was booked by our travel agent in the UK, but they did us proud. Our driver/guide was Alymer. He was knowledgable, interested and obliging. I really wanted to try a rose," no problem madam!" He also gave us an informative tour of Stellenbosch, and was able to talk equally to the other guests who were... More
