From the beginning Stephen was attentive to my emails when researching the tour options. I selected a full day tour including wineries in the cities of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Stephen is very accommodating to include wineries of your choice along with his recommendations (which are superb, by the way). I visited five wineries, learned about the history of the region,...

Stephen was nice to be with. He creates easy rapport, has a great sense a humor and is a wealth of knowledge.... More

We called at the last minute to get a half day view of Stellenbosch on our last day in Cape Town. Fortunately, Stephen Flesch (the proprietor of Gourment Wine Tours) was available. He picked three wineries that were open on Saturday (Meerlust, Ken Forrester & de Trafford). All had excellent wines, each winery with a different thesis than the others.... More

We booked two full day tours with Stephen - the first was a scenic tour of Cape Point and the second a wine tour of Stellenbosch. Stephen was extremely professional, inquiring about our wine preferences ahead of time and creating custom itineraries based on our preferences and requests (these itineraries were emailed to us ahead of time for our review)....
