From the planning , to the selected wineries/lunches, to the tour itself, our experience exceeded all our expectations. John was wonderful and font of knowledge, not... More

Our first full day in South Africa was spent touring Stellbosch with John. He was so very knowledgeable and gracious with his time. His recommendation were spot on and gave us the confidence to continue exploring the wineries on our own throughout our stay. What a fantastic day!

From the minute we got in touch with John before arriving in South Africa to almost the second we left (we also ran into him on our last day in Cape Town), he was fantastic. We could not have asked for a better host, and boy did we need him. We had just found out that my wife was pregnant... More

We had a great day with John visiting the Cape Winelands. We love wine but are not experts - and John provided both expertise and interpretation. He built an itinerary around our wishes and we had a lovely time. Thank you!

We had a fantastic 1 day tour of Franschoek and Stellenbosch with John! We are from Northern CA, and know a lot about wine -- John did not disappoint! He took our preferences into account and fashioned a customized itinerary with some appointment only wineries. He was able to give us wonderful background and history on the region and its... More
