I went on a one day tour of Stellenbsoch with Stephen and had a fabulous time. Stephen is a great guide. He has a wealth of knowledge of both of the local vineyards and area. The tour he designed for me took me to range of vineyards which gave me a chance to sample some of the best Stellenbosch had to offer! I highly recommend these tours!

Cannot recommend Stephen highly enough. From the very beginning he showcased his expertise and experience with wine across a two-day tour of the Stellenbosch and Paarle region. He was personable and interesting to chat with, and was kind enough to take into account personal preferences for wine on the tour, while also encouraging experimentation. He was also helpful in choosing the wines, and procured boxes that could be loaded up with wine purchases for the flight back home. Furthermore, Stephen chose some amazing places for lunch.To anyone reading this and intending to do a South African wine tour, please get in touch with Stephen. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I had 1 day to visit SA wine country. We booked a tour with Stephen and he didn't disappoint. From the beginning Stephen was polite and professional. He was in regularly communication with us leading up to our arrival. He scheduled tastings at wineries that suited our request while leaving room for flexibility. On the day of our tour he arrived at our hotel promptly. During our tour he educated us on SA wines, sharing its young and yet rich history, culture, and personal stories of his love of wine. He recommended wonderful places to shop and dine too. He was very personable during the entire day - we only wish we had more time for Stephen to show us around Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. We truly enjoyed our experience and would book with Stephen again.

My husband and I had the pleasant experience of having Stephen Flesch serve as our "expert wine guide" for three different South African wine tours over a 2 week period (Feb. 26- March 7): Hemel En Aarde, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. Stephan proved to be extremely knowledgable of these regions and the wine produced in each, but he did not attempt to impress or overwhelm us with his expertise. He choose unique wine producers that stand out for various reasons. He set realistic time schedules which allowed enough time to enjoy the experience at each wine tasting. He helped us organize two cases of wine that we brought home via the airlines as two extra pieces of luggage by securing the wine shipping containers and storing our wine until we departed. We have been on numerous wine tours in a number of countries and we can truly say that Stephen proved to be a wine guide second to none. If you are interested in having an enjoyable and interesting wine experience than look no further than spending a day or days with Stephen in the Capetown wine country.

We spent one full day tasting wines in Stellenbosch with Stephen. It was enjoyable as he brought attention to some things we were not aware of. At our first vineyard we became aware of how well knowledgeable he is about wine production. He was on top of keeping the vineyards on track for time. We felt very VIP. He was a wonderful travel companion for our wine journey. He is charming and has a great sense of humor. He was a safe driver and he was very engaging to our nine-year old daughter. We highly recommend him to any family wanting to try and have a nice day of wine tasting. Also, you must attend Delaire Graff for lunch.
