Can’t think of what to do in Cape Town? Why not customise our Cape Town private tours?

This is where our strength shines and we tailor the tour to suit your tastes and interests, marrying them to our knowledge-base and networks. If you are wondering what to do, look no further than our customisable, exclusive Cape Town private tours!

Wine Tasting Tours is not solely about the battle of the Cork Dorks, but our winemaker guide Jonathan is more than up for a battle of the wits with fellow oenophiles! We are more than able – and eager – to speak to our clients about their preferred wines in advance, or to introduce novice clients to the magical world of the wines of the Cape. Our internationally trained guide is able to quickly figure out the unique preferences of each individual client within the first tasting, and can thus guide clients accordingly as to what wines are best suited to their palate.

In Cape Town, private tours are a popular past-time of both locals and tourists alike, and we are able to layer our superior wine tasting tours with themes such as the Gourmand, the Grande Dames, the revolutionary garagistes, the bohemian, the high-tech, the biodynamic, the ethical or estates housing international art collections. No matter what your choice, we can guarantee extraordinary wine and awe-inspiring vistas.

For the “geekier” wine enthusiasts wondering what to do, we offer intriguing cellar tours as part of our private wine tours in Cape Town, which allow guests to gain an in-depth insight into what really happens behind closely-guarded cellar doors. Our Cape Town private tours also cater to those with green thumbs, as we can provide an educational tour of a vineyard on special request. Jonathan will whisk you away on a taste-sensation adventure, as he takes guests on a supertaster test – this is perfect for all comic-book readers who have ever dreamed of using their discerning palate as their superpower!

As any wine drinker knows, their drink of choice is sure to whet their appetite, luckily eight out of the top ten restaurants listed in Eat Out magazine are found either in Cape Town or the Winelands. There are also some of San Pellegrino’s Top Restaurants of the world to be found in the area! You can embark on a delicious food and wine pairing journey (as with all our tours, food costs to be covered by guests) with both stunning local and acclaimed international wines.
