Discover premium local wine & vineyards with amazing views
(Starting from Stellenbosch) Let's go on a full day wine tour to 4 handpicked wineries in Stellenbosch. Experience has proved that the best wine tours are done by visiting two wineries for tastings before having delicious lunch at a vineyard/winery. Then one more winery after lunch to round off the day. The tour starts from central Stellenbosch, but I can also collect you from your accommodation in Stellenbosch area. I prefer visiting small family-owned wineries to have a more authentic experience. I can also plan the wineries according to your preference of wine. Various styles of wine is produced here, from sparkling to white, rosé, red and dessert wines. The idea is to get a good understanding of the local wine scene and what makes the area unique. I am happy to answer all questions regarding grape growing and winemaking. It is also nice to discuss South Africa in general. Enjoy the scenic tour and wine without worrying about "tasting" and driving. Half day tours also available, please enquire

Mountain biking in Franschhoek, like a local
We will meet at a local bike shop to rent mountain bicycles. (Rental not included) Best days would be Saturday or Sunday, best time would be early morning or afternoon. I will provide a sports drink and carry a repair kit, for standard breakdowns. We will cycle along Franschoek town centre (1km), past the historic Franschhoek Huguenot monument (photo opportunity) and on to a road leading out of town, past several farms with great views (4km on hard surface road), we will then arrive at the Berg River dam. From there several options (on dirt roads) exists which theoretically can be self-guided, but with local knowledge of trails, I would suggest the best option, based on party competence, skill and fitness levels. The most scenic, would be a ride along the edge of the dam (6km) which will wind back around a local miuntain (known a “matoppi”. Opportunities to dip in dam is available on hot days. We the have the option to stop at a local brewery (Hey Joe) for a beer, something to eat or a caffeine boost. Finally we will return to Franschhoek via (hard surface) foot path along the main approach road. Again, there is an opportunity to stop at my favourite local Cellar (Franschhoek Cellar) for refreshments. A glass of wine or a substantial (well deserved) meal is no in order since we are less than 1km away from bicycle shop where we need to return bikes to.
