I found this walking tour by chance at the Information Center. It was amazing. Hanli shared interesting information about some of the historical buildings in Stellenbosch. I learned a lot, which made my time there more meaningful. In addition, the “bites” part was fantastic. We sampled bread and meat along with wine. We had small samples of seven dishes for... More

Excellent tour as you go to such beautiful places that would be difficult to find and are in the heart of the town. The food and wine were delicious and Hanli was so informative and passionate! Thank you

Lozelle, our guide, did a splendid job taking us around the historic areas of Stellenbosch before buying some exceeding tasty bill tong, Droewors and olives for "nibbling" whilst we tasted Brampton wines at their street level wine-bar (called - Studio). She then took us to the Oude Werf restaurant where we tasted (rather ate, as it was lunchtime!) a trio... More

Thank you for your detailed review! You are now somewhat of an expert on the traditional Cape Cuisine. :) We think you'll have to do a South African-themed dinner for your friends - if you do, please send photos. More

Cannot rave enough about this tour- Hanli was fantastic with creating a tour that would accommodate our timing/dietary needs, and both her and her colleague Simone who conducted our tour were extremely friendly and professional. The stops on the tour were well planned, well researched, and very interesting.It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon getting to know Stellies!

This was a great walking tour through Stellenbosch. It successfully marries the history of Stellenbosch with introductions to local vineyards/wine producers and South African cuisine. Simone was a wonderful guide with a friendly and informative approach. The four hour tour flew by and was highly enjoyable - I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Stellenbosch.

This was a great few hours spent in the company of Hanli our guide. She showed us a potted history of Stellenbosch interspersed with wine tasting and food. We visited a local butcher to buy biltong and sausage, then a local baker to buy bread. Once that was done we visited a cellar door and tried some wine to go... More

What a super idea for learning about all the different facets of Stellenbosch. Simone was excellent - very friendly and knowledgable and provided great food and wine along the way. We enjoyed Anita from Morgenhof with their great wines and lunch and desserts were really delicious.

We had an amazing time sampling South African delicacies together with obtaining information of the architecture of Stellenbosch and how the town began. Hanli took us on a walking tour around the town of Stellenbosch stopping along the way at a wine bar sampling 3 different wines, then onto the oldest butcher to sample biltong, then we walked to one...
