We were lucky enough to have booked the tour completely alone for two. Under Guide was very nice and brought us closer to this great city. Unfortunately, there wasn't much going on in the wine fields in September. But in total we tried 8 different wines and delicious chocolate. We received a small snack package from our guide. It was a great experience to ride a lot with the bike. I can recommend it to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it. There were eight of us, which was ideal. and the guide was superb. He had a very personable way, knowledgable and fun. Stellenbosch is stunning and the two vineyards we visited were beautiful, and of course the wine was great.

Was an excellent tour lasting approx 4hrs, guides are flexible and will take longer if none of the group have to be back on time. Our guide was Sevarinio who was excellent, he had good facts about the winearies and also Stellebosch history. The ride. An make one out of breath if not use to cycling but there are two guides and one us always with the slower ones. We visited two winearies and had two wine tasting sessions, second one was paired with chocolate and a tour of the cellar, very interesting.
