Our first time visit to So. African Wine Country was quite enhanced by Lesley's efforts on our behalf. She was prepared, flexible, well informed and the time just flew by in her company. We enjoyed and learned a lot...she won' t disappoint.

Leslie was our guide for two days through the Franshhoek and Stellenbosch regions of South Africa's wine country. She reached out in advance of our trip to better understand our goals and wine preferences, so when she arrived the first morning to pick us up we had a plan put together that did not disappoint! Leslie was also quick to... More

She prepared an itinerary in advance asking our wine preferences and basing the travel schedule to accommodate our tastes. When she learned we are golfers she diverted to Ernie Els Vineyard for a brief view of a stunning property. She knows her wines and seems... More

We scheduled a full day private tour of the Cape Wine Region with Lesley in January. Soon after we booked our tour, Lesley contacted me via email asking about our wine preferences and if there was anything specific that we would like to do so that she could draft an itinerary for us. I had a few requests, such as... More
