  • Capetown Winelands: Shared Half-Day Tour with Local Guide

    1. Capetown Winelands: Shared Half-Day Tour with Local Guide

    South Africa is known worldwide for making crowd-pleasing and award-winning wines. This half-day Winelands tour will take you to the cradle of this beautiful wine region. On the tour your guide will share with you the story of how the South African wine industry came to be. You will learn how the foundation was set by protestant refugees from France.

    Mauritz, our driver/guide for the day picked us upon time and was very friendly and very knowledgeable. Not only about the wine areas but also about lots of the South African social and political history. He listened to our wine likes and dislikes (my wife only drinks white wine while I prefer red) and chose the wineries to visit with this in mind. He gave us good information on the areas we visited and also arranged the tastings so that both Ann and myself were fully satisfied with the types of wine available. The timings of the visits, tastings and lunch stop was well judged and made the day very relaxing. I would strongly recommend Mauritz as an English or German speaking guide for a day in the Winelands.

    You have the freedom to choose which time you would like the tour to start. It is recommended you start at 8:30 AM, as you will want to get the most out of your day. The guided tour begins with a visit to Maidens Cove. With views of the notorious Twelve Apostles Mountain range and pristine Camps Bay penthouses, you might be tempted to relocate to Cape Town.

    Jean Luc was AMAZING. Even though we had our own vehicle and possibly could have made all these stops ourselves, having such a great tour guide made a huge difference learning the history, economy, nuances on social context, enjoying views rather than stressing over directions. My wife and I are thinking of trying to find a tour guide like Jean Luc for our home town to appreciate our own city more.
