We felt like we were getting a locals lay of the land while also learning so many interesting pieces of information from our relaxed, interesting guide Johan! I don't think our visit would have been nearly as rich and fascinating if we hadn't done it. 100% reccomend to anyone visiting Stellenbosch.

Would definitely recommend doing it in the morning before you explore the town yourself as it really helps you place things on a map for later in the day!

We had a very enjoyable tour with our guide Juliana. We were lucky, we were the only two on the tour. She gave us a lot of information about the history of this beautiful town. Moreover she told us a lot of nice things to know when staying in Stellenbosch. It was a very pleasant experience, highly recommended. She suggested to speak Afrikaans because we are Dutch. Never thought it would be that easy to follow for us. Very nice experience, thank you Juliana.

Thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Stellenbosch. Great way to get your bearings and understand more about the history of the place. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and made the experience lots of fun. Also, our group was of just five people which was even better!

Great tour with Johan. Very personable and informative. We have become walking tour junkies, taking advantage of this way of learning about cities all over the world. This one was definitely up with the best. In addition to the local history, Johan is also very knowledgable about the local wineries.

I was looking forward to the walking tour having read others' comments. They must have had a different guide!

The "information" we were fed was a mixture of facts, quasi-facts, and downright rubbish. Personal opinions seem to have been the most important information to impart.

Shame, it could have been so much better!

For anybody interested in the history of this area, the tour was excellent and informative and enjoyable. Our guide was superb and despite the fact that only two of us were there. gave us great value and commitment. The history of the town is fascinating - how the Dutch came to the area and how things developed and there also much about how the town is now - it provided a real insight into this aspect of South African life. Highly recommended. For somebody in wine country who isn't that big on wine it was a nice change! My only quibble is that the sign up for the website was tricky and they might be better off using a simpler system like Eventbrite - but I emailed them and the response was swift and helpful.

I just completed this walking tour which was very informative and interesting. It lasted 1.5 hours and brought me around all the historical buildings of the town, giving me a good insight into the development of the town over the centuries.
My guide was very pleasant and although I was the only one on the tour, this did not pose any problem, and I got to places which I wouldn't have known existed.

Thanks for a great afternoon steeped in the culture of the town.

We (group of 4) arranged a walking tour with Sandra K and Tourism office in Nov 2016. Unfortunately at last minute Sandra could not do our tour. This lead to some confusion and the rearranging of a guide but we did our tour as scheduled.

Overall, the consensus was that the Stellenbosch tour it was good/OK. Lots of good historical information for us to better understand how modern day Stellenbosch came to be. Our sense was our guide who had just finished a tour, was a bit tired towards the end of a long hot day. Quite understandable under the circumstances.

Anyway, we were mixed on whether to recommend or not this tour as a good use of 1-2 hours. Probably one would do fine with a good guide book and walking map. We did not check out the Stellenbosch Free Tours, perhaps we should of......

Stellenbosch is a charming little town and possibly the only piece of our history that is so well preserved thanks to the Ruperts.
