Spent a week in South Africa back in April with my mate. Wanted to tour some wine farms, so used these guys. Bottom line - excellent. Roger made it. His company was excellent. Made what would have been a decent day, a great day. If I do go back to South Africa (hopefully on honeymoon!) then I'll definitely look up... More

We reached Franschhoek excited, but with no real plan on what to do and how to get around without a car (we didn’t have one). Taxi services are extremely expensive (~ZAR 100 one way) and Ubers appear sporadically but are usually only available during the day. We wanted to get the most out of our 1.5 days in Franschhoek so... More

Did a half-day private wine tasting tour in Franschhoek with Roger and it was great! I asked him to take us to vineyards that make great white wines and he did. Since my wife's pregnant, he included a chocolate factory and olive oil tasting in our itinerary for her to enjoy. He is very pleasant, knowledgeable and fun to be... More

The Winelands Experience tour is a great private tour for people who wish to visit the vineyards at their own pace. We were able to give them list of vineyards and preferences on wines we liked when booking the tour. When the driver, Rodger, showed up he had mapped our tour and scheduled tasting at vineyards on our list as... More

We used this company again on our latest visit to Franschoeck and they were absolutely brilliant. We had requested Roger to drive us around as we had had him on our last visit and had been very impressed by him, very friendly and knowledgable. We requested visits to wine estates off the wine tram routes and he took us to... More

We used Bill and Johnson to ferry all our 100 guests to and from our various wedding events over a long weekend. Naturally I was nervous as there were over 100 journeys to coordinate from a number of different hotels and timings were crucial. The Winelands Experience team took it all in their stride and handled every detail. They didn't... More

We booked an afternoon tour. Our guide Patrick was great. Apart from wanting to go wine tasting and mainly white wines we hadn't clue what we wanted.He took us to 5 vineyards, all of them different and we tried a wide variety of wines (27!) plus olive oils at one. We even had a road train tour around one vineyard... More

We had a great day organized be Winelands Experience. We visited three winery's and one chocolate factory. The three winery was great and different then the places you will visit with the train. The chocolate tasting was a great break for our daughter that's not old enough for the wine tasting. Roger was a great guide and could tell us... More

We had only one day to explore the vineyards of Franschhoek during our trip to South Africa. We decided to hire a service to drive us around -- one so we weren't drinking and driving, and two because we wanted the expertise of a local. Our driver, Mark, was more like a friend hosting us in his city. He picked... More

We found Tayne Ruddock through Winelands and he was a fabulous guide. We did a bike tour (which as very easy), saw 3 wineries and had a fabulous lunch. We rode on quiet roads, through vineyards and enjoyed amazing scenery. Tayne provided right sized bikes, enormous knowledge of wine, and a unique and thorough perspective on South Africa. He even...
