Explore the luscious winelands of the Cape! This enchanting journey takes you to the historic wine region of Stellenbosch, a mere hour's drive from Cape Town. Set against the backdrop of spectacular mountains, Stellenbosch is world-renowned for making some of South Africa's premier wines.
Explore the captivating Cape Winelands. This enchanting excursion begins with a tour through historic Stellenbosch. It is the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country's wine region. In 1679, Dutch East India Company governor, Simon van der Stel, noticed the fertility of this long valley, on the banks of the Eerste River, as ideal for vineyards. Van der Stel's foresight led to the growth of one of the world's best wine regions. A gracious blend of 18-century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings is evident as the tour winds its way down Dorp Street, where massive Oaks still shade original water furrows. You will enjoy a wine tasting at one of the renowned wine estates in the Stellenbosch area. A second wine tasting will be included (time permitting), before returning to Cape Town.
