We called for a last minute private tour, and no more than 5 minutes later Roger picked us up with a big smile. He was super knowledgeable, interesting, and chose great wineries for us to experience. A perfect few hours, thanks so very much Roger!

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor we booked a full day tour and specifically requested Roger as our guide due to the amount of favourable feedback he had received. We had a brilliant time visiting 5 vineyards, all different to each other, and tasted a whole range of local wines and had a very nice lunch at Delaire Graff Estate.... More

We had read great reviews of this experience on trip advisor and were not disappointed. Roger our tour/ wine guide was amazing. He told us all about the local area, picked three amazing wine estates for us to visit and selected the wine for us to taste based on what we told him we liked and didn't. He was a... More

A guided wine tour was our #1 thing we were most excited about, and Roger at Winelands Experience didn't disappoint. It's an excellent service; Roger picked us up from our hotel at 10am and drove us to four different vineyards in the Franschhoek area, each offering something slightly different. We learned loads, not just about wine, but also from generally... More

We decided on the car and driver option as opposed to a "guided tour" since we knew which wineries we wanted to visit. Roger was our "driver" but acted as a guide the whole time. He was knowledgeable, engaging, well versed in the history of South Africa. He also knew all the wineries in the area and took us to... More

Spent a week in South Africa back in April with my mate. Wanted to tour some wine farms, so used these guys. Bottom line - excellent. Roger made it. His company was excellent. Made what would have been a decent day, a great day. If I do go back to South Africa (hopefully on honeymoon!) then I'll definitely look up... More

We reached Franschhoek excited, but with no real plan on what to do and how to get around without a car (we didn’t have one). Taxi services are extremely expensive (~ZAR 100 one way) and Ubers appear sporadically but are usually only available during the day. We wanted to get the most out of our 1.5 days in Franschhoek so... More

Did a half-day private wine tasting tour in Franschhoek with Roger and it was great! I asked him to take us to vineyards that make great white wines and he did. Since my wife's pregnant, he included a chocolate factory and olive oil tasting in our itinerary for her to enjoy. He is very pleasant, knowledgeable and fun to be... More

The Winelands Experience tour is a great private tour for people who wish to visit the vineyards at their own pace. We were able to give them list of vineyards and preferences on wines we liked when booking the tour.
