While in Franschhoek this past January, my husband and I joined a winery tour one morning through Paradise Stables. This was the highlight of our time in this region. The views were absolutely stunning, and we rode through a variety of terrain which made the ride all the more exciting. Our group leader (and group) were fabulous! We stopped at... More

The best part of our stay in Franschhoek! We were not experienced riders but got a lot out of this trip! Cannot do anything but recommend the service, the horses and the wineries! You get to ride a lot and the views are spectacular! Wau!

Visited paradise stables whilst holidaying in SA. The horses were in a great condition and even though I'm not a confident rider I felt very safe on them. My sister who is a very proficient rider also enjoyed the tour. We went in the morning which I think was the better option as was cooler. The wines we tasted were... More

An excellent way to spent a morning ... riding on stunning Arabians through the mountains and stopping off for a bit of wine tasting along the way! Highly recommended!

We arrived at the stable to find it was just us going out on the ride as the other reservations canceled. We thought it would be great to have just ourselves on the tour. My wife and I have ridden horses before but we are certainly not professionals. You pretty much hop on the horse and start riding without any... More

My husband and I are both keen experienced riders and we thoroughly enjoyed the morning we spent riding between and visiting two of the local wineries with Yolanda. The stables are rustic and well used and the horses are hardy fit working endurance horses (there are a couple of retired endurance horses that are great for beginners). Yolanda was great... More

Thank you to Peter for making our ride so enjoyable and informative. The horses are incredibly well behaved and the ride is suitable for all levels of experience. The views are fantastic and the wine tasting well received. It was one of our lasting memories of the holiday and a real highlight.

What a crazy sounding idea that in reality was actually really well organised, included trekking through some breathtakingly beautiful Franschhoek countryside and include just the right amount of wine tasting so as to keep me from falling off my horse. Our guide, Yollanda, was lovely, friendly and just a pleasure to ride with a we had just a wonderful time.... More
