We did a full-day tour with a different company the day before (booked by our travel agent) and we booked La Rochelle for a half-day tour the following day (due to the Trip Advisor reviews)... and wished we would have booked La Rochelle both days!!!

Danelle was excellent! Her love of wine is contagious, and her knowledge staggering!

We cannot recommend La Rochelle enough... book with them!!!

This is the 2nd time we have used La Rochelle Wine Tours when we have been in Franshoek. We were collected from Guest House promptly at 10 am by De De, and what a fabulous day we had with this delightful young lady whose knowledge of wine is second to none, we learned so much and tasted some brilliant wines at three different tasting rooms. We had a great lunch and wine tasting at Maison, with beautiful views and excellent food. This was one of our most memorable days of our long trip to SA and we thank you for that De. We shall be back.

We booked a full day wine tour with La Rochelle tours. Our host Danielle was the perfect guide She wash extremely knowledgeable ,professional and personable. We had one of the best days of our trip . Danielle clearly has a massive passion for wine which she is keen to share. We visited three vineyards all different in their own way. Tasted at least 6 wines at each ( so glad Danielle was doing the driving) and had lunch along the way. I can't recommend this tour more highly. if you are in the area it is a must regardless of whether you are a wine expert or a novice or just want a really interesting day out.

We booked a half day wine tour and when we were picked up we discovered it was just the two of us and our guide Aylmar. This could have been awkward if he hadn't been such good company. Not only knowledgeable about the local wines but very informative about everything we enquired about. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and great value for money

Just had our second wine tour with Danelle and again thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She knows her stuff, not only about the wine but about the whole area and took us to some wonderful vineyards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Rochelle if you're looking for a great experience in the winelands.
