“A memorable day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Maury from Rustenberg Wine Estate recommended Anel. You know when a wine estate recommends a guide that she has to be excellent and she was! Anel went out of her way to understand what wines I preferred and took me to the best estates. She is an amazing guide! She also went out of her way to facilitate my wine shipment from South Africa to Washington, DC. I plan to return to Stellenbosch next year and you know that Anel will be my wine guide!

Dear Elyse, what a great day we had! Thank you for introducing me to Oldenburg Wines, what a beautiful winery and great Cabernet Franc! Also, thank you for all your ideas & positive input regarding South African wines, its people and life in general, I really enjoyed your company. Please keep your promise and return to South Africa next year, there are still awesome Pinot Noirs to experience in the Heaven-and-Earth Valley!

“winelands with style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Anel was recommended by our hotel and we were lucky enough to be the only guests so we had her all to ourselves. She picked us up at the door and discussed our wishes, likes and dislikes and then designed a perfect tour for us which covered 4 different types of vineyard and tastings, in Stellenbosch, Franshoek and Paarl. Anel is knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The day exceeded our expectations.

“For that "Personal Touch" wine tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This wine tour was recommended by our hotel and we can see why - from the minute Anel picked us up from the door of the hotel we knew we had picked a perfect host and guide. She asked us our wine preferences and then took us straight to several vineyards with endless tasters. The half a day tour was a hit with both of us and we felt a lot closer to Stellenbosch and South Africa.

“Simplesmente maravilhoso! A wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Viajei com um amigo para a Africa do Sul e planejamos uma ida às vinícolas em Stellenbosch. Primeiro pensamos em alugar um carro pois estávamos hospedados na Cidade do Cabo mas como iríamos degustar vinhos essa certamente não seria uma boa opção. Em contato com uma vinícola nos indicaram os serviços da African Wonder Tours. Havíamos contactado outras duas empresas mas a African Wonder Tours se destacou já na troca de emails... não poderíamos ter feito melhor escolha! Fizemos um maravilhoso passeio de dia inteiro, visitamos 5 excelentes vinícolas, o almoço foi super agradável com uma vista maravilhosa e certamente a presença da Anel de Villiers, nossa guia, fez toda a diferença! Anel é muito atenciosa, gosta e conhece vinhos e, a cada vinícola que visitávamos parecia que ela estava entrando em casa... seu bom relacionamento com as pessoas das vinícolas nos proporcionou um ótimo atendimento. Foi um dia perfeito! Quero voltar logo… ///////xxxxxx///////// I traveled with a friend to South Africa and we planned to visit Stellenbosch wineries. At first we thought about renting a car as we were in Cape Town but, as we would drink lots of wines, this would not be a good option at all! In contact with one of the wineries they indicated African Wonder Tours services to us. We have contacted two other companies before but African Wonder Tours stood out immediately from the emails exchanged… we could not have made a better choice! We had a wonderful full day tour, went to 5 awesome wineries, lunch was very pleasant with a nice view and certainly Anel de Villiers, our guide, made all the difference! Anel is very kind, she likes and knows well about wines and, at each winery we were visiting, it seemed like Anel was arriving at home… her networking and good relationship with people from the wineries provided us an excellent service. It was a perfect day! I want to go back soon…
