Customer Reviews

Lovely experience. My friends and I really enjoyed the Vine Hopper - Eastern route because it enabled us to visit several beautiful wineries in one day. The friendly chauffeur Marcel pick us up in Cape Town and he was flexible in dropping us off and picking us up at the wineries too. The route takes you through the incredible scenery of Stellenbosch and you will visit great wineries with a variety of beautiful wines. I definitly would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Cape Town area. - Chava van der Woerdt

We had a very nice day with the Vinehopper in Dezember. It is really comfortable to be picked up at and returned to the hotel. All of us could do several wine tasting during the day. We visited awesome wine estates and we really enjoyed the day! I would recommend this tour. - Sandra


Excellent day, we were picked up by our driver and taken to 5 Vineyards. The driver was knowledgeable and great fun. He didn't rush you at the vineyards so you had plenty of time to taste the wines. He recommended lunch at Boschendal Vineyard and we were not disappointed. I am not a big wine drinker but this day was a great experience. - Jo Noonan
