What you can expect

Unlock the secrets behind South Africa's history of winemaking and soak up the local flavour during a full-day adventure in the Cape Winelands. Cruise through the pastoral countryside with stops in Paarl, Franschhoek, and Stellenbosch, and taste wines at 3 distinctive estates along the way.

Join a knowledgeable guide in Cape Town and motor out beyond the city limits. As you drive, marvel at the sublime beauty of the valley, delighting in its expansive sky and rolling vineyards. Your first stop lands you in Paarl. See Paarl Rock—a sheer outcropping that provides a thrilling challenge for advanced rock climbers. Enjoy a memorable winetasting in Paarl before continuing on to Franschhoek.

Nestled beneath the Drakenstein Mountains, Franschhoek is a fabled village dating back to 1688. Here, venture inside a renowned wine estate where you can enjoy lunch at your own expense and participate in an additional winetasting. Chat with the local sommelier, and learn about the environmental factors that contribute to the terroir of wines produced in this corner of the world.

Finally, travel to Stellenbosch—the second oldest town in South Africa and the historic heart of the country's wine region. Tour an acclaimed wine cellar and partake in a final winetasting before strolling in the shade of the massive Oak trees along Dorp Street. Glimpse 18th-century Cape Dutch, Georgian, and Victorian architecture. Then, return to Cape Town in time for nightfall.
