La Rochelle Tours was established in 2000 with the main focus being on conducting personalised wine tours in small groups and visiting less commercial wineries when possible. Our specialized wine tourism guides are all educated by the Cape Wine Academy. All guided tours and transfers by La Rochelle Tours are done in a professional way and we exceed expectations on a daily basis. We like to share information about wine in a fun and relaxing manner...wine should be enjoyed and learning more about it can be fun.

We are based in Franschhoek and we would love to share our passion for wine with you! We now also offer restaurant (lunch/dinner) transfers in Franschhoek (until 22h00 daily). Transfers to and from Franschhoek and Cape Town International Airport now also available.

Collections for wine tours from Franschhoek, Stellenbosch & Paarl.

Contact us directly when booking to ensure we plan the best possible day for you!

The Team: Danelle, Aylmer (Tour Guides), Johan & Thabo (Drivers)

She took us to three separate wineries- two in the morning and one in the afternoon after lunch. Each winery had very tasty wines and Danelle provided a background explanation... More

We'd looked at organising our own ad-hoc tour, or taking the wine tram, but given a limited time frame decided to go with a private tour - very glad we did. Danelle (sp?) was a fantastic host, arriving to meet us at our hotel as planned and taking us on a short tour of the town up to a lookout... More

My wife and I booked a half day private wine tour and we're greeted by our tour operator Danélle a few minutes early at our hotel. She took us through Stellenbosch, describing some of the history as we made our way to Franschhoek for our first winery. There we tried 3 MCCs and 2 wines, which were delicious. The whole... More

We took the private mystery wine tour. Almyer was our guide. I won't tell you where he took us because it will ruin the surprise, but it was so much more than expected. Almyer was a great guide informative and very considerate of our needs. At the last minute he found out my wife was vegan, but he did not... More

There were 4 of us with varying knowledge.We booked a mystery tour - which was varied,fun , exciting and very professionally ran by our friendly and knowledgeable guide Danelle. We gave a brief for the day and that was delivered fully. Highly recommended. Five star day out.( I could tell you more but I don't want to spoil the mystery.)

I cannot recommend this tour company highly enough. We did a full day Cape Food and Wine tour. Danelle was an amazing guide, full of knowledge and fun. Nothing was too much trouble. The food and wine pairings were superb. What a brilliant day out. Not to be missed.
