Stellenbosch was founded in 1679 by Dutch governor Simon van der Stel and is steeped in pioneering history. It is in the most beautiful countryside with dramatic, expansive vistas of mountains, vineyards and ocean and elegant mix of 18-century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings. On top of this, Stellenbosch is the centre of the African winemaking industry. Close by we have approximately 400 tasting destinations and over 3000 wines to choose from. Jim and Marie are also wine makers, (look for “Hunneyball Wines” in Platters Wine guide).
So, perhaps with all this it would be very odd if we didn’t specialise in wine related and cultural tours
In is little booklet, you can read about our numerous and varied tour options.
