Having arrived in Franschhoek on saturday afternoon, and needing to be in Capetown on monday morning, left us with only sunday to take a wine tour... Not ideal!
Danelle was recommended to us by a local shopkeeper, and collected us within 20 minutes of making the call. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and went out of her way to make sure we got a tour we would enjoy (not just some set-list itinerary trotted out every day by someone bored out of their mind!). Her enthusiasm was contagious, and she seems to have a good working relationship with the vineyards she brought us to, one of which was closed altogether on sundays and received us specially at her request!
There was no strict timetable, which allowed us to keep an arranged lunch reservation, and take our time at it, which was brilliant. There was one other couple on the tour with us, and Danelle took them on to their own lunch booking, before meeting up with us for the afternoon part of the tour.
I gather there are cheaper ways to tour Franschhoek (as long as its not a sunday...), but for the few extra rand I would highly recommend a private/semi-private tour like ours with Danelle and La Rochelle Tours. You wont be disappointed!
