The Basics

The centerpiece for most Constantia wine country tours, Groot Constantia is set just south of Cape Town and can be visited on everything from historic wine tours to hop-on hop-off bus routes. Tours include the chance to learn about the history of the estate at the Manor House and Museum, wine and chocolate tasting, and a tour of the original Cloete Cellar.

You can pick a tour that pairs Groot Constantia with other wineries or stop by on a sightseeing tour that includes other attractions such as Table Mountain or the Cape of Good Hope.

We can highly recommend this tour...
We can highly recommend this tour. Comfortable ride in air conditioned car, with our most knowledgeable guide, Andrew. Stunning views, mixed with plenty of photo stops and walks at Cape of Good Hope. Penguins were superb, well worth a visit. A wonderful tour finishing up at Constantia winery. Five sample wines to chose from a list of many with generous servings. Delicious! A special mention for Andrew who was such an excellent guide, and put up with my two rather badly behaved daughters with very good humour.
