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...

Our first stop was Anura vineyard. We had a tour of the cellars and then wine tasting with cheese and crackers. The wine was delicious and very affordable due to the strong pound. Next stop was Francheok which is a really cute town and has lovely little boutique shops with nice jewellery etc. Next was Stellenbosch which is a university... More

We have been using Winelands Experience for a number of years now and they have always maintained the highest standards and have a very professional team. This year I had a particularly challenging job for them - my husband had major surgery and I need to get him... More

I have booked a day tour of the local area. I was not interested in seeing wineries but seeing beautiful places and landmark. Patrick, our guide chauffeur, has been a great help and he made sure we had a good time...taking us to different places most of them unknown to us. Great time....!
