We were pick up at 81 Long Street then transferred to the V& A and changed buses. The first wine tasting was very well organised- 2 white, 2 red plus chocolates to march. Free time for lunch. 2nd tasting 1 white, 1 rose and 3 red plus cheese and bread. I appreciated the 1st as I am not a red drinker. Overall it was a good tour, we even saw zebras, not expected.

Well organised tour, on time with the pick-up, feel save on the bus and enjoy the tour guide with all his interesting information while travelling from place to place. Everybody was very friendly and helpful on the bus and will definitely recommend this tour. I look forward to my next holiday in Cape Town and will be on the "red" bus again.
