“Excellent Wine & Cape Point Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

We recently experienced a week in Capetown and based on a friend's review used Cape Wine & Leisure Tours, firstly to enjoy a full day wine tour and then two days later a trip around Cape Point. We had Pen as our guide and she proved extremely knowledgeable not only on wines from the regions near Capetown but also on South Africa in general. We were very fortunate to have the van to ourselves on both days so this gave considerable flexibility as to where we visited and enabled us to maximise our time. During our wine tour we were able to visit the historic gardens of Babylon. We also thoroughly recommend the Cape Point tour which takes you to the southernmost tip of South Africa. Along the way we visited a penguin colony and close to Cape Point saw baboons in their native habitat.

“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Our vineyard experience was booked by our hotel.
Ella collected us punctually. From the outset she was wonderful. About twelve of us on the mini bus mostly English speaking. Ella adores her home town, this is reflected in her in depth description of the surroundings.
Driving through Stellenbosch she gave us an historical tour in an interesting and fun way. But the vino is her speciality. We visited three glorious vineyards. The tastings starting with Bubbles as it was 10.00 were glorious. Fab wines, surroundings, atmosphere and intimacy. No huge crowds at the vineyards so plenty of time to chat with the hostess. Yes, we purchased wine & olive oil.
At lunch we had to depart so we missed the much anticipated lunch organised by Ella. However we will be back to visit more vineyards with the brilliant Ella.

“Great wine tour and guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

This tour was recommended by our hotel in Stellenbosch. We originally booked the half day tour but extended to the full day which included lunch at an incredible restaurant/winery with an amazing view and then one additional winery. Definitely book the full day tour. Our guide Pam was knowledgeable about wines and helped us to identify what grape varietals we liked. Our group was small, only 6 persons so it was the perfect size if you aren't into mass tourism. I recommend this to wine lovers or wine curious.

“Oenophilia heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We took a half day tour of the Stellenbosch vineyards and were fortunate enough to have our host,Willem Swanepoel, to ourselves as he is a knowledgeable and friendly oenophile who pointed us in the direction of some interesting wines from the three very different estates we visited.

In addition to tasting the wines, Willem provided a lot of background information about wine making and the history of the area.

This tour was well above average and can be highly recommended as great value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review . We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of South Africa with over 160 vineyards to choose from.

“Lovely wine day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We had a lovely day touring some of the wine estates of the Stellenbosch area. Pam was a great host and we had a nice group of 9. However what I found disappointing was that there was no time to actually explore Stellenbosch and no visits to wineries with the famous Cape Dutch architecture, and all in all very little in the way of photo ops. Also I found 4 wineries quite much. Two before lunch and one after would have been ample for me.

Thank you for your review. Our group wine tours are personalized and we don't have a set itinerary. The guide will engage the clients before the tour with any special requests as to wineries they want to visit and then decide which works best on the day. I am sure had Colleen known that you wanted to visit a winery with Cape Dutch Architecture she would gladly have taken you. Thank you for using us for your tour. Regards Willem
