Recommended by a friend who had toured several years previously. Feel like we lucked upon someone who really knew the area, the wineries and the wine. We had a very reasonably priced private wine tour through the higher end major wineries in the Stellenbosch area. John had organized everything but also adjusted to our tastes. Overnight main street Stellenbosch was... More

We selected this company from one of many we approached to arrange a two day trip, with accommodation, in the winelands - and we were not disappointed. John was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and selected some great wineries and restaurants for us to visit. He also arranged accommodation at the Villa Grande in Stellenbosch - a great choice - andeven... More

I booked this tour for my mum's birthday while we were staying in South Africa. The initial enquiry, booking and payment process was very straightforward, efficient and friendly. The tour itself was created by John, and provided a varied and interesting day out. John was extremely knowledgeable of the area, not only of the wine region but of the journey... More

This was our first trip to S. Africa and after much research, it seemed best to stay in Cape Town and make 2 one-day trips for wine tasting. After discovering "Happy Holiday", we confirmed this plan and hired from them a private car & driver. This allowed us to reserve only one hotel and avoid hotel hopping as the wine... More

Taken on a full day group wine tour by John's very friendly and knowledgeable wife. We left Cape Town by train in the morning and she collected us from Stellenbosch train station with our 3 week trip luggage. The full day group consisted of six people, plus we picked up another two in the afternoon that were just taking part... More

We spent my husband's birthday on a full day small group tour with John and he provided us with a very memorable day. He took us to some beautiful vineries where we sampled some truly excellent vines and stopped at a lovely place for lunch where they provided us with celebratory sparkling wine. What a surprise! He also accommodated our... More

It was a very late reservation request from me for 6 people for a private wine tour & I was a little concerned that my expectations were perhaps set too high. John was amazing, confirming his services promptly despite the short notice. From the minute he collected us from our hotel, there was no doubt that you were dealing with... More
