Superb full day exploring three uniquely different and memorable vineyards and had a bonus stop at the Franschook Motor Museum. Final stop was Paarl Prison - all in all and excellent day conducted by tour guide Vincent.

Great tasting trip

The pick up, the car, the guide, everything was great. The only missing part is the guide should’ve been a bit more in depth knowledgeable about the area.

The wine route was fantastic...the lady at Paarl was really nice and gave valuable information about wine making. She was funny yet professional.

Enjoyable experience

Thank You to our guide, Egan and the hosts at the estates.

Vincent was an excellent guide- knowledgable and friendly
