The booking was not done on Trip Advisor, but was been handled by the guest house. As it was not been confirmed with the guest house they did not even communicate with African Story Tours about the booking. African Story Tours did not cancel the booking at all.

Bruce was an amazing guide! He is very knowledgeable in wines and has many stories to tell on other topics too! A very interesting chap with a shining personality :) my mom and I booked a tour last minute on December and because of COVID there are not as many tourists as usual so we were the only 2 on the tour! Bruce made it happen anyway :) so many companies I think would have cancelled. We got to see 4 amazing wine estates, meet amazing people and taste great and vary varied wines (limited editions also!). Bruce is very well connected and knows everything about these estates: the owners, the sommeliers, the waiters, the back story lol everything.
I also think this company is the only one proposing a wine tour across 3 towns: Paarl AND Stellenbosch AND Franschhoek. Although we realized after the tour, we actually didn’t go to Franschhoek :( a bit of a bummer but Bruce actually told us during the tour that we could tell him what we wanted to know, where we wanted to go, he was ready to customize the tour according to our preferences! So really it is our fault 😂 afterwards we also wished we had asked him to walk in the vineyards (see the winewards)! too bad, it means that we will have to book a tour again with African Story hehe 😉

I recommend this tour 100% and don’t hesitate to tell Bruce what you are interested in (and think about it beforehand). Thank you again Bruce and see yiu at the next wine tour! 🍷

Also it is worth noting that Bruce doesn’t force your to drink alcohol if you are not that much into it, he also doesn’t enforce wine diktats lol if you like a wine that isn’t supposed to go with your food it is fine by him. He gives advice and suggestions then let you decide for yourself; his ultimate goal is for you to enjoy the experience. Lastly, Bruce doesn’t drink at all during the tour so no worries regarding the driving ;)

Bruce the owner and tour operator was exceptional, professional, friendly, kind and very knowledgeable! The four wine estates were extraordinary and had their own uniqueness and charm. You will not leave the estates empty handed, because they have so much to offer besides wine. By the way the wines are excellent! The best part of the tour for me was the interaction with Bruce! He is a wonderful human being. I recommend this tour to everyone!

We literally cannot recommend this experience (and Bruce!) enough. Bruce was able to tailor each tasting to our palette and it's not often that you get to experience a tasting guided by someone on a first name basis with the owner/vintner. Bruce was a fantastic tour guide, whose genuine passion for wine made for an amazing tour experience.

Book this tour - it'll be worth it for an authentic South African wine experience.

Bruce is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He cares about his customers and loves his job, which makes the experience that much more enjoyable. He provides personal touches for each guest. I absolutely recommend him for your winery guide.

This is a must do while on holiday in Cape Town! This tour was a wonderful way to see the local Winelands. Our tour guide, Bruce, was awesome. He was professional, personable, and very knowledgeable. My husband and I were the only ones that booked for our day and the tour still went on! It was our own private wine tour. Bruce already had an idea of where he wanted to take us, but asked us what types of wine we like to drink to make sure he picked the best vineyards as well as tasting wines for us. We went to 5 wineries/vineyards, with tastings at 4 of them and lunch in between at a different winery. We had the best time and I cannot recommend this tour enough!

This was a great experience. The tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable not to mention professional. I tasted a lot of great wines at several vinyards in the area and even got a few bottles to take home. I would wholly recommend this tour to anyone who is unfamiliar with the vineyards in the area and wants to get a sense of what they have to offer.

Wow what a lovely day. Definitely a highlight of my vacation. My tour guide, Bruce, was so knowledgeable and really went above and beyond what was promised. We managed to squeeze in extra places because we had time and I truly appreciated the effort. My booking was hassle free and the tour worth every cent. The wine, scenery and guide were extraordinary. I've done many guided tours and this was my favorite by far.

EAT. YOUR. BREAKFAST.
KNOW. YOUR. LIMITS.
This amazing wine tour will bring you to 4 (technically 5) wineries that each give you 4-5 wines to taste - and their pours are a little generous. For my tour, one of the wineries included a cheese tasting, and another included chocolate. BUT, what made my wine tour extra nice, was my tour guide Theunus! Theunus genuinely participated in our conversations (and sometimes, shenanigans), and a tour guide that enjoys their time with you makes for a pretty great tour guide. He not only drove us safely from pick up to drop off, he also brought us into some of the wineries and explained the process and machinery involved. All in all, a pretty great time.

But in all seriousness. Eat your breakfast. Theunus did bring us to a petrol station where we could buy food if we wanted, but even so. It's a long and wine-heavy day.

Overall: great tour; recommended. The pick up was around 8:30-9am, tour guide was a ball of energy full of energy. The transport was nice, 4 vineyards, 4-6 tastings of wine some with cheese, and some brandy. Lots of history. The wine was pretty affordable as well. More for people who like dryer wines
, for sweeter wines go for Constantine.
