Stellenbosch is not only about wine tasting, a must do is absolute visiting the town ship. You 'll see a different South Afrika, no danger at all, 60.000 people live in this town ship. How they manage to keep everything so nice and clear is a mystery for me. We also had diner in a local house. Just perfect !... More

If you have just half a day in Stellenbosch, or if you have more and want to get to know it, then this tour is a must. Hanli, the charming and knowledgeable guide, will take you to lovely little places in town and tell you what needs to be told. She's not pushy and she feels her clients, so expect... More

Hanli was super knowledgeable and friendly as well as seeming to be good friends with almost everyone in town! She took us all around town including; a fabulous bakery (schoon) where we were given some lovely artisanal olive, sesame seed and chocolate breaksticks. We then went on to a local wine bar where we tasted multiple fab wines to go... More

This half a day tour was the perfect way to get to know the charming town of Stellenbosch. Our guide was very knowledgable about the history and architecture of the town and introduced us to traditional regional foods. All the stops were great and lunch delicious. The chocolate stop was a perfect ending to a perfect morning!

Foodies on Foot tour today with Hanli was lots of fun and was extremely informative. Highly recommend at the start of you time in Stellenbosch. We learned about the best places to eat and drink. The museum was also a highlight.

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
