… 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

Danelle's knowledge of wineries, wine making, and food pairing is extremely impressive. My husband and I have toured many of the wine regions in the world but learned the most from Danelle. She took a few minutes to find out our preferences and level of wine knowledge and took us to three fantastic wineries. Her extremely tight relationships with the... More

My partner & I enjoyed a wonderful day out in the Franschoek & Stellenbosch valley guided by a very knowledgeable, energetic and fun Danelle from La Rochelle Wine Tours. She provided us with detail of the wine estates, farmers, wine production and of course the best wine pairing options! Great selection of wine estates & we bought too many boutique... More

First, the good: our driver, Aylmer, was fantastic. Professional, helpful, courteous, punctual...everything you want from a driver. We just booked the chauffeured drive rather than the full tour since we knew which wineries we wanted to hit, but you got the sense that he knows the area and the wine farm operators very well indeed. Now, the not so good:... More

Danelle was a wonderful hostess for the food and wine day tour, we had a fabulous day! The food and wine were amazing. She picked the perfect places to go, tasting a wide variety of different wines and foods. However, it seemed perfectly planned such that the day unfolded without us getting too bloated or drunk! We also got to... More
