“Best motor museum in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Stunning cars - historic, rare, iconic - displayed in immaculate settings in purpose built, beautifully designed buildings surrounded by mountains in the background and botanical gardens in the foreground. We visited twice.

“Wonderful Selection of Cars”

A surprise find amongst the Vineyards ! Even for those who are not dedicated "Petrol Heads" this museum is worth a visit. An amazing array of beautifully preserved historic cars housed in 4 seperate out buildings.

“Motor Mania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

All I can say is... wow. The vehicles were in amazing condition and the collection was the best that I had ever seen. I took about 2 hours just enjoying the history of the cars and the beauty there. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone - even if you're not a motor head.

“Saw some Grand Auto's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

It was the fist time I had every seen a Cord auto made in America the same year I was born. And I had to go to SA to see it. They should start making that car again as a retro, it was a great looking car.
