Notes

The Vine Hopper day ticket is the most cost effective way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route. You can decide on what you want to do on the different farms and pay for tastings, tours or activities as you go along.

Please be ready for pick up at your Stellenbosch Central Guesthouse 15 minutes before departure time! You can also meet us at the Tourism Info office at 47 Church Street, Stellenbosch.

This is a great way to still be independent and not linked to a group but having the comfort of being transported, enabling you to enjoy your tastings at your own time without worries of how you are getting home!

Customer Reviews

One of the best experiences from our entire trip to South Africa ! The wineries we were taken to were absolutely stunning and very affordable, the drivers were so fun and communicative and really gave a great vibe to the whole day. We met some of the coolest people on the adventure as well! We couldn't believe how much we got out of this experience for such an incredible price. Vans were air conditioned and comfortable and everything was taken care of to the fullest. We will be back!!! - chelsea lambert

Really great tour led by a great host in Marshall! - Alison Foskett


Brilliant tour. Just what we were looking for. Picked us up from our hotel on time on a Sunday when most other tours don't operate. Decided we would do three wineries so first stop Haskell. Great wine and lots of it in a great setting. Then Alto - some great reds. Then to Kleine Zaltze where we opted for lunch at Terroir - awesome food and more great wines. Vinehopper was fantastic - showed up at agreed times and very friendly. - James Hancock
