Customer Reviews

We found this a wonderful intro to Stellenbosch and the wine country. Sevi is a gifted guide: knowledgeable, charming, and enthusiastic. The combination of cycling through the city and on the trails to the wineries and wine-tasting at two very different, yet both delightful wineries, was a real winner. Very glad we did this - we'll recommend to others. My only slight quibble: The bike seats were not very comfortable; my wife was actually a bit sore afterwards, even though it wasn't that long a ride. Overall we give it 5 stars; which you'll see on our Trip Advisor review. It was a highlight of our time in South Africa! - Harry

We had an amazing guide and an unforgettable sad we don't remember the name of the most great guide we could wish for. Regards TiM - Federici

Fantastisch!!! Super goede gids. Weet veel van Stellenbosch en omgeving. Prachtige Wijnproeverijen!!! Doen!!!!! - Ina

We had some enjoyable hours with our tourguide Daniel throughout Stellenbosch and some wineries. Daniel is very pleasant, well educated and helpfull. Even though we've been around Stellenbosch many times before, we were surprised to learn so many new information about Stellenbosch. And also the chocolate-wine pairing in Lanzarac was a wonderful new experience for us. In the end Daniel brought us back safe and sound to our starting point. We really had a great time. - Keuser

Wat een aangename ervaring, heel goede fietsen, professionele begeleiding. Heel fijne stops and tadtings, een echte aanrader - Betty
