Recommended by our hotel this was really exciting and whilst we are not big horse-riders it was fun and well worth it. Visit it in the morning though as it gets hot during the day

Love love loved the ride around the valley, our guide was very friendly and our horses real stars (I'm a novice but felt very safe, the horses are beautiful and many are currently in or have been in the national endurance riding team,). We'd recommend this as a great way to see the area on horseback (the wine tasting is a nice add on, but the scenery is the big draw).

Good for inexperienced riders. Looked after us very well. Enjoyed our visits to a couple of wine estates travelling this way.

We had a lovely afternoon riding through the vineyards, the horses were very well behaved and the views were beautiful. We stopped at two vineyards and had a very nice wine tasting, was great to turn up on horseback! Our guide was very friendly and informative. Would thoroughly recommend this activity.

This place really is paradise. We stayed in the room attached to the main house, it had a roll top bath and a four poster bed. The most amazing views! And the pony trekking via wine tasting was wonderful. I am an experienced rider, my husband is not but we both had a fantastic time. Lovely well cared for horses. This was the cheapest place we stayed during our trip and by far the best. I would move to Franschoek tomorrow. The wine and food is amazing!!
