What people are saying about Stellenbosch
If your main focus is drinking wine, we can only recommend you this wine tasting tour! In total you get to taste at least 22 different wines in 4 different estates. Tania is a great tour guide and we enjoyed our time to the fullest. She was very knowledgeable and super fun! If you want to see more of the regions as well, then you probably need to book another one with less visits. As you get tastings on 4 vineyards, you drive from tasting to tasting, but don't really have much time to spend to see the villages. We addressed already that we would not go back to one of the estates as none of our group enjoyed their wine, but we also understand that everyone's taste is different. The place although is absolutely beautiful!
Our tour was delayed by over 30 minutes because we waited for a couple in front of their hotel for pick up. As a result, we not only had to sit in a car waiting but our tour was also cut short. Our tour guide, Denver, did an excellent job in accommodating and trying to get us back on track but it was unfair that we and the rest of the guest were impacted by the 2 late guest. My suggestion would be to give people a 10 minute grace period and if they are not ready for pick up, they get left. This should be a common practice.
Amazing tour and amazing tour guide - Theunis. Perfectly organized, well chosen wineries, majestic landscapes, beautiful gardens and delicious wine and lunch. But this tour wouldn't be the same without Theunis - the great music he chose on our ride, his knowledge and professionalism - all that made an unfortgettable day. Thank you Theunis :-)
About the wine tasting, it lack a lot of information about how to taste it, and about the production process. The first place gave much more info, second and third place lack of information. The lady that guided the last wine tasted had a rude manner witch we all in the group comment it was not a nice experience.
I’ve never been to the wine estate. This is the first time I joined a wine tour. Everything was good especially the guide who was really funny and knowledgeable. But it’s better to study some basic things about wine before you join the tour otherwise you couldn’t be able to enjoy the whole trip.
