“Memorable and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Pam is energetic, passionate and extremely knowledgable about the history of South Africa, the cape, the winelands and all the amazing gourmets experiences that can be found in and around Cape Town. With very little time to explore, we were so lucky to have Pam as our guide!! She is a fountain of knowledge, very easy going and loads of fun to spend time with too.

“A Foodie's Nirvana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Pam took us on a delightful tour of the Paarl and Stellenbosch regions, all the while filling us with informative and entertaining anecdotes about the area and its characters. History was never so interesting. The wine & cheese (Goats do Roam) and chocolate tastings were superb - as was the exquisite tasting menu and wine samplings at Jordan wines and resto. Pam flexed her plans and timing to meet our evolving interests and needs, including a delivery to the airport. If you are not a fan of wine tours, I can guarantee that Pam will convert you - she was the highlight of my visit to Cape Town and I would recommend her service as a "must" to anyone visiting the area. Thanks, Pam!

“Wine tour with energy and enthusiasm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Pam took us on a fantastic wine tour during our honeymoon - she is fantastic fun, very knowledgeable about her wines, good food, the region, and South Africa more generally, and also really professional. Would book with her again to visit some more vineyards if we had had the time! Thanks Pam!

“Amazing three days of tours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Pam was highly recommended to us, so I booked her way ahead of time for the full three days we were to be in Cape Town. It was the best decision ever! Pam was very communicative and asked for our input about what we were interested in seeing, doing, and eating, and she planned us three wonderful days. First day was the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach Penguins, a lovely Mothers Day Lunch at Harbour House and all sorts of other little goodies tucked in between. That day we had Anine as our driver and associate guide and really enjoyed her as well. Next day was the winelands. Along the way we had tastings of beer, chocolate, cheese and wine and saw the beautiful wineland countryside. A lovely late lunch at La Petite Ferme followed, then an interesting visit to a car museum. Day 3 was a walking and tasting tour of Cape Town, starting in Bo-Kapp and ending at the Mount Nelson Hotel. We tasted all sorts of delicious traditional foods like samosas and bunny chow, stopped at a new winery tasting room, and also visited several Interesting crafty shops such as Monkeybiz and Streetwires. We were also treated to a visit with David, who makes the most delicious stew with Pap and Samp, and sells it from a kiosk at the Transit Station!
Pam was very communicative, prompt, friendly, fun and outgoing. She adapted to our interests and was flexible if we happened upon something that we found interesting. She was an absolute font of information about Cape Town past and present, as well as South African history. Pam has both the knowledge and the contacts to custom tailor her tours. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of all three days....Thank You so much Pam and Anine!

“Pam provides a wine country tour full of enthusiastic spirit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Pam McOnie is an ebullient sparkplug of a personality and the ideal guide to take my partner and me through the Cape Winelands. About a month prior to flying to Cape Town for vacation, I contacted her company, Cape Fusion Tours, about booking a Cape Peninsula tour for which she was not available. She immediately referred me to Lesley Cox of Amber Tours, who did a spectacular job. Pam made a smart, customer-first business move because when Lesley turned out to be unavailable for the Cape Winelands tour, she referred me back to Pam without hesitation. I think this clever networking all turned out for the best because Pam certainly knows her local wines and describes the area with great enthusiasm throughout the tour. A full day cost the two of us cost us R 2500 (approximately $240), and this consisted primarily of traversing between the two key towns in the region, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, presumably the Napa and Sonoma of South Africa.

We made stops at three wineries plus the Delaire Graff Estate to enjoy the eclectic art amid elegant surroundings as well as lunch at La Petite Ferme, a popular, rustic-elegant restaurant with a lovely hilltop view of the vineyards and the Berg River Valley. Our first winery stop was at the Waterford Estate, an exquisite chateau-like setting in the Blaauwklippen Valley, where we were served a satisfying wine and chocolate pairing in their courtyard followed by a brief tour. Next was the Stark-Condé winery in the Jonkershoek Valley, where we were taken to a charming small island in the middle of a lake where they conducted their tastings. Last was the family-owned Fairview winery famous for their cheeses and where in fact, we were served eight cheese bites to go with all the wine samplings. Pam certainly demonstrated a great deal of stamina in not trying any of the wines since she was driving. I would definitely recommend her services without question since she placed focus on our interests first.
