“Awesome Tours with Luhambro Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We booked two private tours with Luhambro last week. The first tour was of the Winelands with Cedric. He customized our trip to favor our taste for reds and gave us a great education. He also included a stop at the Van Ryns distillery after we mentioned we liked ports, brandies, etc. What an unexpected treat! His knowledge of wines was incredible.

Our second tour was with Marlene around the Cape of Good Hope. She was very obliging in stopping whenever we wanted to wander the area. We got to see things that I'm sure we would not have seen with most other tours. We weren't on a big bus tour so that we could linger or pass on whatever we liked. In the end, our two Luhambro tours were the highlights of our visit to Cape Town. I highly recommend this company.

“Great winelands tour with Luhambo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We booked Luhambo tours on our visit to South Africa this past summer - we arrived 4 days before our 2-week Tauck tour started off. Luhambo Tours was one of the best tours we have ever done - I was greatly impressed by the quality, care, and customer service aspects. Luhambo is as good a tour company as any in the world we have experienced. We spent 3 days with Cedric, our guide, visiting wineries and sights in Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Constantia and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Luhambo helped us with hotel and restaurant reservations and recommendations. They were spot on! Cedric knows his wine very well and provided a wonderful overview of flavors, venues, and experiences at each of the vineyards. Additionally, Cedric's knowledge of the plant and animal life in the region is incredible as is his knowledge of the history of South Africa - I highly doubt we could find a more knowledgeable tour company than Luhambo. Sabine was excellent to work with over email and phone. We cannot wait to return to the Cape Town area and look forward to another great adventure with Cedric, Sabine and the Luhambo team.

“cape point + wine tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We took a one day full tour- half day covering boulders beach, cape of good hope, chapmans drive and 2 vineyards tours . Started at 830 and ended at 530. Our tour guide Marlene was absolutely outstanding. Passionate and keen to make sure we dont miss any attraction. She kept giving us important info and history on all major attractions as we passed by

Its a full on tour but worth it. To make it even better would stick to one vineyard tour and relax at the vineyard rather than 2 vineyards.

“Great day through South African wine country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

My wife, son and I had a great tour through Stellanbosch and Franschhoek. We were joined by a delightful couple from NYC on their honeymoon. From the timely pick up and drop off at our Westin Hotel to lunch at a quaint spot up on the hill, we had a great day. Highly recommended!

“Best of Both day trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Myself and a friend did the 1 day Cape Peninsula and Constantia wine tour. Our guide for the day was Marlene who was excellent. This tour is great for those who have limited time in Cape Town and wish to maximize there visit here.

We were collected promptly from our hotel and the full days itinerary was explained. During the morning we visited all the places listed on the web site. We were never once rushed at all while visiting the various attractions. Doing this private tour i found is much better than in a larger group because you have more freedom and is more relaxed. There are plenty of photo opportunities along the way. After lunch at the Cape of Good Hope in the 'Two Oceans' (fabulous restaurant and scenery- in which our guide secured brilliant seats for us in which is a very busy restaurant) we set off for the wine tasting.

We visited two estates- Steenberg and Buitenverwachting. I found these to be too very different estates in contrast.
Steenberg is very picturesque and has a lovely area to do the tastings, however i found it to be too commercial and the staff were less than impressive they had no personal touch about them.
Buitenverwaching however had a more of a natural estate feeling about it. The staff were brilliant and very welcoming. And most importantly the wines were very tasty so much so that i am trying to get them delivered here to Ireland as they don't export here at present.

All in all a fabulous day was had. Id like to thank Marlene for sharing her knowledge on wine with us and will defiantly use this company in the future on my return to Cape Town.
