Our first stop was Anura vineyard. We had a tour of the cellars and then wine tasting with cheese and crackers. The wine was delicious and very affordable due to the strong pound. Next stop was Francheok which is a really cute town and has lovely little boutique shops with nice jewellery etc. Next was Stellenbosch which is a university... More

We are regular visitors to Franschhoek and spend 3 months here annually. We have been using Winelands Experience for a number of years now and they have always maintained the highest standards and have a very professional team. This year I had a particularly challenging job for them - my husband had major surgery and I need to get him... More

I have booked a day tour of the local area. I was not interested in seeing wineries but seeing beautiful places and landmark. Patrick, our guide chauffeur, has been a great help and he made sure we had a good time...taking us to different places most of them unknown to us. Great time....!

We went to 3 different vineyards that were all so different. The wine was delicious and very affordable to buy! It was also a great experience because we got to tour around the areas, and we came upon some beautiful, incredible towns. Great day!

I had to organize a corporate team building event in Franschhoeck and used Winelands Experience as a partner. The whole event, planning and execution, went very well and smooth and the guests had a very good experience. We had a Braai at the La Bri Wine Estate which topped everything off. The tables were set wonderfully on the lawn. I... More

I have used Cape Winelands - also known as Wineland Experience - for my clients, and can strongly recommend them. They offer diverse experiences beyond the typical stop-after-stop at wine estates. Most interesting of these is probably the stop at a Township in Franschhoek, to see, as they put it: "The other side of Franschhoek". Johnson, Jacquin, Bill.. and their... More

A full day tour operated by Springbok Atlas & pre booked in the UK, prior to our holiday last March. Perhaps one of the most memorable days we have ever spent during our many years of globe trotting. We were picked up outside our hotel in Sea Point, on time, by our driver "Superman" along with 5 other very friendly... More

Just a great customer service experience from start to finish. When we initially talked about a tour the guys in the office were very helpful and helped to develop our own schedule (slightly hindered by it being a public holiday). On the tour we were taken around by Precious, who was very informative and flexible with our plans. We both... More

A beautiful area to drive through, about 45 minutes from Cape Town. The lush landscapes, vineyards & wonderful wineries, make this a MUST to visit. Try several types of wines for wine tastings. Amarula is an after dinner liqueur. It is a native tree whose fruit, when ripe, is made into the liqueur. It is also a favorite treat, like... More
