Whether you're a wine connoisseur or a lover of natural beauty you'll be swept away on this wine tour to the famous Stellenbosch and Paarl Valley wineries. Combining historic villages, stunning scenery and fabulous wines, this day trip will have your senses working overtime!
Leaving Cape Town you'll start the day with a visit to Paarl and the spectacular Paarl Valley. Here you can enjoy a wine tasting and cellar tour at one of the local estates.

The tour continues north-west to the beautiful village of Franschhoek. Then it's on to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country's wine region. The final wine tasting will take place here at one of the well-known estates. (Please note that this tour may run in reverse.) The red grape variety Pinotage is unique to the area, but all the classics are represented here: Shiraz, Chardonnay and Semillon.

You'll have the opportunity to walk around Paarl and Stellenbosch on this tour. With the air scented with sweet grapes and the trees softly swaying in the wind, it is a wine lover's paradise and a truly relaxing way to spend the day!

We loved this tour!!! The Fairview winery (first stop) in the Paarl Valley was the best winery in our opinion. Great old world atmosphere, beautiful grounds, cheese tasting, and goats in a lighthouse... no joke!! They also stop by for a brief photo op at the prison where Nelson Mandela was released.

Franschhoek winery had the best views of the valley and mountains. Winery tasting room was very nice but the tasting was not great. We were able to spend 45 minutes in town as an added bonus.

Lastly, the town of Stellenbosch is fantastic. Had a great lunch with some locals at very cool restaurant during our 90 minutes of free time. Really loved that little town. The winery I thought was very average. The drive up with the trees lining the road was beautiful but the winery/tasting room was just average.

Overall.... loved the tour!!!!
