HE is very knowledgeable about the area, and being a wine maker himself, brings another level to the experience. He chose lovely wineries for our visit, and we had a highly enjoyable day... More

We were elated at the end of the day that seemed to end too soon even though we had been with Richard for more than ten hours. He is so knowledgeable but never dry- he has an easy going manner and imparts information so that it is really interesting and not just a string of facts. We are two older... More

For anyone looking over the myriad of wine tour options when staying in Cape Town, ask yourself the following:- Do you want to finish the day knowing a lot more than when you started? Do you want to the decent stuff, rather than the supermarket brands? Do you want to feel like a guest of the vineyards, rather than a... More

It makes the visit charming, very intersting and full of different topics. We are enthusiastic about the day we spent... More

Greatest Cape boss Richard and his staff are the most conscientious and professional in the business. He knows about hidden gems ahead of the pack, and has a keen antennae for anywhere that's going 'off the boil'. Whether it's a wine personalised wine tour or accommodation/transport booking; you are in the best hands.
