Begin your tour with pickup from your Cape Town hotel prior to an 8 a.m. tour start time. Ride past vineyards and rural scenery along the Stellenbosch Wine Route to the Zevenwacht Wine Estate, located roughly 20 minutes outside of Cape Town.

Upon reaching the small but vibrant town of Stellenbosch, enjoy your first tasting at a wine cellar. This region is known for growing a wide variety of grapes, including chenin blanc, pinotage, shiraz, and méthode cap classique for sparkling wine.

Then, continue to the old Huguenot village of Franschhoek. Partake in the town’s artisanal culinary tradition with a wine, cheese, and biltong tasting at Marianne Wine Estate while admiring views of the countryside.

Head to your final tasting in Paarl, passing Drakenstein Prison where Nelson Mandela carried out a portion of his sentence for campaigning against apartheid along the way. Tour the town to learn more about Afrikaner culture and see a monument dedicated to the Huguenots before tasting wine at Laborie Wine Farms.

Return to your hotel in Cape Town at the end of your trip.

We’ve done other Cape Town wine tours. This one was one of our favourites. We were picked up at our hotel in very comfortable transport and whisked off to Stellenbosch for a wine & chocolate tasting. Then after a chance to walk around the town center, over to Paarl for our second tasting with biltong. Next Basel took us to Franschhoek where we had a lunch break and a chance to check out the high street, before we were put on the wine tram for a short ride to our third tasting, where Basel told us we could relax and enjoy the vineyard, as there was no need to rush back to CPT. We really appreciated this, and even bought more wine to enjoy on the vineyard terrace. Other reviews complain about the wine tram, not sure why, everyone on the tram is lively, having a good time, the views are amazing and frankly it was something we could tick off our list of CPT experiences without having to work out the details ourselves. Basel got the tickets, escorted us on the tram; and made sure the driver knew where we were to get off - then he was waiting for us at the other end. We even got a wee tasting of one wine on the tram. Great experience. Definitely worth it.

Our tour guide, Basil was absolutely amazing! He was both knowledgeable and caring. I was however very disappointed in the service we received at our last stop. There was a wedding taking place and they definitely were not expecting us. Not sure if this was Rickety Bridge or the tour company’s fault. Again, Basil did his utmost to not let this spoil our day. Thank you Basil

Excellent time on this excursion. Our guide was helpful, we had a good group considering we all came from different backgrounds and language barriers. Wines were nice. The cheese/wine was my favorite. Marianne is very pretty though.

The guide made the trip! Basel was telling us so much about Sourh African history much more things than just things about wine. The train trip was nice, the shuttle nice, the wine tasting was nice. A perfect day outside Cape Town!

With a sort of silly 40 min tram ride when a side stop on the road for a photo would’ve done, a lunch not at a winery, and 2 hours from pickup to our first stop, the pace was insanely painful. The guide was amaizng though. The tour company just needs to restructure this tour

We had a great experience with this tour! Our guide, Franco, was knowledgeable, polite and friendly, and he created a laid back atmosphere for all 9 guests. We toured three wineries and stopped for coffee and a lunch. Hotel pickup was incredibly convenient!
