John arrived at our hotel and drove us within 4 1/2 hours to 3 different wineries. They were excellently chosen, according to our needs and expectations. John is very friendly and knowledgable and we could not imagine to have this morning in a better way. All questions were answered, everything worked out. To be recommended!

My wife and I did a private tour with John whilst on Honeymoon. As novices in the wine world, John had put together a specific itinerary to let us see everything from the small, family run organic vineyard; then on to an upmarket and beautiful place where you could pitch on the lawn for a picnic; finishing at a larger,...

My husband and I had a wonderful full day tour with John. He took note of our purchases to date and then tailored a tour to our tastes. We explored across Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, and Paarl. John understands wine, given his passion and knowledge of wine as well as the area. We learned so much and got way more out of... More

We had booked in with Wine Escapes for a 1 day tour of Stellenbosch as part of a week long trip to South Africa in celebration of my girlfriends 30th birthday. John was an absolute pleasure to talk to from the initial email exchanges right through to the tour itself. John had contacted me in advance to enquire as to... More

I hired John for a private wine tour two weeks ago while we were staying in Cape Town. This was one of the first things I booked once deciding on our stay. I had of course read TripAdvisor reviews and was very excited when John himself was available. I cannot speak highly enough of this experience. He picked us up... More

I booked a wine tour for my husband's birthday during our holiday in South Africa. Our tour guide, Samantha was wonderful. She collected us from our hotel, and had arranged 3 wine tours, and a stop over for lunch at another vineyard. Her choice of vineyards was very good, and ones that we probably wouldn't have found by ourselves. She... More

We booked Wine Escapes via our B&B a couple of months in advance for six people. Unfortunately two had to drop out a couple of weeks before the trip and we received a prompt refund from the company. Our guide, John, collected us on time and took us to three wineries as planned. We had requested wineries which were not... More
