“Consummate professionalism - Rory Mac”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

3 key overseas suppliers visiting SA and Cape Town for first time, and 5 local colleagues. Willem prepared stunning wine tour itinerary, met us on time and entertained all of us with good humour and deep knowledge on wine. No question (and there were plenty) had him snookered. Unpretentious, 'down to earth' friendly approach, always entertaining. Never overbearing. Just enough of everything at the right time. Nothing too much trouble. Agreed at last minute to drive all back to CT in peak hour traffic even though not prearranged. Suppliers, who had travelled widely themselves suitably impressed. Ours was a business trip but one senses WIllem would handle any group large,small, young, old with equal ease. 5 stars. Won't let you down.

“Great way to spend the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Eileen kept us on point and to the best vineyards in Stellenbosch. Why drive around and guess when you can have a local tell you the best place to be. Drink all the wonderfull wine you want and leave the driving to them! We bought numerous bottles from the tour which we wound up drinking throughout the trip. We were pleased to see each and every vineyard we visited represented at the Johannesburg airport duty free as well. Needless to say, we loaded up! Great day with great people. Just do it!

As a side note, we loved the vineyard Rust en Vrede - a red wine specialist. Enjoy.

“A memorable day touring the Stellenbosch area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour with Eileen - we had given her an idea of what we wanted to see and she tailored the tour perfectly; it was one our best days in SA!

“Great tour of some lovely wineries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Although the weather was awful, it didn’t really matter as our genial host TJ took us and our two daughters to three very different estates to try around 20 different wines. The staff in each were extremely welcoming and enthusiastic about their products, to the extent of sharing wines that they weren’t selling but simply wanted us to try. We felt no pressure to buy, though we did, given the excellence of the wines. A truly memorable day, and a brilliant way to round off our time in SA.

“Nice but not quite all we were hoping for.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

I had a really quick and comprehensive response to my inquiry about this tour and with the good ratings I found that is why we went with this company. We were picked up late and dropped off at a winery where the tour guide went to pick up another couple she had forgotten. From there we were hurried about from winery to winery after we had been told that it would be a lovely relaxing day with time to stop and enjoy the scenery. This was a big splurge for our trip and it was nice enough, the wineries were lovely and the wines were great but I didn't really even have much time to take photos or anything. The guide was relatively friendly and knowledgable about the wine. Overall, as the rating reflects, maybe we'd go again and give it another chance but it wasn't exceptional.
