Our vision is thus to partner with various wine farms in building South Africa's reputation as a wine destination of choice. To do this we offer specialized, exclusive wine tours where guests are introduced to some of the best Estates and wines, whilst providing them with excellent service and hospitality.

Indeed, having visited the Winelands before we chose to travel from Camps Bay over Chapman's Peak to Kalk Bay (taking in Lunch at Harbour House) and then to Boulders to see the Penguins and... More

Wine Escapes arranged an amazing wine tour for my husband and me with our 2 young children, ages 3 and 7. My friends had recently traveled to South Africa without kids and had recommended Wine Escapes. While at first we were a little apprehensive about dragging our kids to wine tasting after wine tasting, our fears immediately vanished when we... More

John at Wine Escapes was the perfect guide for a wine day in Stellenbosch/Franschhoek. John is incredibly knowledgeable about the vineyards, wine making process, and the history of the area - which made the drives between vineyards interesting. He also is in no way overbearing or pushy (which some guides can be)... and senses when you need to take a... More

Wine Escapes is #1 for a reason. My second trip back to Cape Town and I only considered another tour by this mom and pop owned business. We decided to taste at a couple of the "off the beaten trail" wineries. Amazing!! John is not only well known with the popular wineries but also the smaller venues. Thank you Wine... More

I was on a business trip to south Africa and decided to spend the weekend in CapeTown, and the Stellenbosch wine farms was highly recommended. I decided that I wanted to do a private tour, rather than the bus/coach hop on and off tour, and it was the best decision. John was very professional (which was important as I was... More

Our afternoon with John far exceeded our expectations. The wine tour was one of the highlights of our South African vacation. John took the time to learn our wine preferences and customize a day of wineries for us. He was extremely fun and engaging to talk to and spend the day with. We learned so much about South African wines,... More

Our group has been on a few wine tours in the past, and this was the best any of us had ever experienced! John is incredibly knowledgable, and took us to some really unique spots. The wine was great, the views were magnificent, and the lunch was superb. One of the best days ever!

John was an absolutely excellent host for our tour with Wine Escapes; from recommending a great and diverse trip, being extremely knowledgeable, and very good company, we couldn't recommend Wine Escapes more highly. A must-do if you're in the area.

I contacted John with Wine Escapes a few months prior to my trip to Cape Town. After speaking about a possible tour I wanted to go on, I forgot to confirm my interest until a week before my trip. Luckily, John was very understanding and was still able to book me for my horseback ride and tour of the Stellenbosch... More
