We did the full day wine ,olives ,cheese and chocolate. Our guide,Aylmer, was extremely knowledgable and guided us through the tasting,showing us how the taste of the wine changed by the way you drink it.It was very educational,and something you would never get on a self guided visit. Interesting that we were 9,000 miles from home and the only other... More

We were picked up right on time and taken to get another couple so all together there was 6 of us. The guide Alymer Manko was brilliant and full of knowledge of the vineyards and local history. We all had such a fun day and went out for a lovely lunch in between. I would definitely recommend this tour as... More

My husband and I were in cape town for 3 days for our honeymoon and only had enough time to do a half-day wine tour. We researched basically every company on trip advisor and chose La Rochelle based on their exceptional reviews, and we definitely made the right choice!! My husband and I ended up being the only 2 people... More

Three of us from Maryland were joined by one other guest for the Wine, Cheese, Chocolate and Olive tour with Alymer. Alymer was prompt and informative about the local industry as well as the region. In addition to sharing his passion for local wines, Alymer gave us the best education we have had on how to taste wine and appreciate... More

We booked the whole day wine, cheese, chocolate and olive oil tasting tour and it was amazing. We got to see the beautiful area of franschhoek and stellenbosch, our guide was very knowledgeable and the vineyards we visited were really different to each other but very nice. I guess one could spend several full days with wine tasting in this... More

We did the the full day wine tour and gourmet delights with Danéllle and what an amazing day! She is wonderfully charming and not only full of knowledge, but a great teacher. It's so special to see this area through the eyes of someone who loves it so dearly. It's also obvious that the wineries enjoy having her bring guests... More

We had arranged this trip as something to fill the morning before we got married in the afternoon. We were met by Alymer at the hotel. He took us to 2 vineyards, and spent the time telling us so much about the wine and how it was made. The whole group felt like they had learnt a lot in a... More

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
