    Reagan was the best driver and guide ever! He took us to several lovely wineries and a perfect place for lunch as well. It was a small group, the two of us and one other couple so we got to set our own pace. Everything was perfect, even the weather. Highly recommend this tour company and ask for Mr . Reagan!

    My wife and I went on our honeymoon in South Africa and this was the first thing that we had planned right off the plane. I couldn’t have been more happy that we decided to do this tour. Our tour guide TK truly was the highlight of our honeymoon. His hospitality, charisma, and genuine personality made us feel like we had made a friend for life. He had a deep knowledge of everywhere you go on the tour as well as general South African history. He would go out of his way over and over again to make sure every person on the tour was having the best experience possible. I’ve ton hundreds of tours in America and worldwide and TK was the best guide I’ve ever had.

    We choose to do the 4-star package and all of the accommodations were excellent. They are all bed and breakfasts that are privately owned so everything is very intimate.

    As far as the tour itself you are seeing and doing things in South Africa that I would have never planned on doing on my own. Going to feed elephants, climb through caves, zip line through national parks, going on private game safaris, and most uniquely going to small towns and villages that are very remote and having meals in local restaurants. There is a lot packed into 7 days along with a ton of driving, so it can be exhausting, but if you want to see and do as much as possible I would highly recommend this tour.

    I just had the greatest trip of my life!
    Every day was grateful surprise in this country. I'm still delighted with all the experiences!
    The Garden Route is unmissble, Loved the safaris and all the landscapes we saw on the road.
    Cape Town was also a delight and I must come back soon! There are so many things to do there!

    The hotels, the tour and the service of HotSpot are great. The Hotspot crew were very atencious and I fully recomend this tour or any other they offer!

    Our tour guide in this trip was Uriel and I can tell: he is the best! Kind, smart, funny, respectful, careful, helpful... I could stay all day writing good things about him! I travelled with my mom, who is 72, and other elderly people, and he was very attentive with her and the others. Uriel knows a lot about Africa and was a delight to hear him talk about his country.

    Mont La Rochelle national park is beautiful
    We mount dutoitskop which gives you great views over franschoek
    Plan your trip and visit tourist information in franschoek before going to the park they have maps which are unavailable at the park office. There are 4or5 really good walks to do but you need a map

    My boyfriend and I loved every minute of this tour. We went amazing wine farms learnt so much about wine and saw some of the most beautiful parts of Cape Town. We also had a second trip booked to the city and we had booked again to do another wine tour unfortunately, due to COVID we had to cancel.

    The next time we visit Cape Town I will definitely book another tour with these amazing, professional and kind people.

    We did the penguins et al. with Ian 2 years ago and had such a fab time and experience that we had no hesitation jn booking with him again, his time to the Cape Winelands. Ian is not the cheapest around but he is excellent - a local man, intelligent, full of essential information and willing to answer any question both openly and honestly. Additionally, Ian provides an excellent on-board commentary and is fluent in both English and Africaans. A late cancellation on the day meant that we had a private tour which was totally tailored to our agenda. This being said, Ian bases his tariffs on small groups so that he can personalise the experience for all guests to a great degree.
    Pre-excursion communication by email was highly effective and we had a prompt pick-up as agreed at 8.30 am at our hotel. We discussed our ideal day with him and off we went to the winelands. As it was early, an early morning alcohol tasting was not considered so we proceeded to De Villiers for chocolate tasting which was fabulous with at least 30 different flavours and types to taste = imposssible not to buy some to take home so we did. De Villiers also brews beer but we declined the pairing although others might wish to do both - all included in the price!
    Our first wine tasting was at the Fairview estate in Franschoeck. We preferred all white wine tastings and Ian negotiated this with staff and it was an excellent session with 5 different whites paired with 5 different cheeses - lovely and again included in the price.We told Ian that we liked to view gardens so next we strolled around Babylonstoren - a fine collection of craft shops, dairy, chocolatier, butchers shop and restaurant in addtion to beautifully laid out gardens.This was a lovely segment enjoyed in beautiful sunshine in a lovely setting.We slotted in a 2nd tasting before lunch at La Lude, a lovely boutique winery and restaurant where we again enjoyed an all white wine tasting in beautiful surroundings out in the garden area.
    As we had an evening dinner reservation booked we asked for a simple lunch venue and we settled on Tuc Tuc in Franshoeck where we all chose from a bistro type
    menu which we enjoyed outside.
    After lunch we proceeded to Stellenbosch, a major university town with many historic buildings.We did a tour of the town in the vehicle before parking up and undertaking the Village Museum tour which included 3 main houses each staffed by "in character" staff who provided historical background and answered any questions.As a history lover I really enjoyed this "how they used to live" segment the cost of which was again included. After re-joining our transport we proceeded to our final wine tasting at the lovely Tokara estate. Three excellent whites were tasted in idyllic, panoramic surroundings overlooking Stellenbosch. We could have stayed here all day but unfortunately it was time to set off back to Cape Town as our day with Ian was drawing to a close. We made our farewells with Ian at 5.30 pm after a brilliant day out. Considering the quality of product and everything which was included (only lunch is at your own expense) the tour provided superb value for money. Ian and African Moon Adventures are recommended without reservation and we will be certainly seeing Ian again when we return to the area,

    I know it’s been over a month. Our trip was arranged by Dexter & took us on a Garden Route South Africa. He planned our trip very well, be it places he chose or timings for places to visit, it was done very well. He was in touch throughout the trip. With no hiccups what so ever. I found him trustworthy. He under promised & over delivered. I would highly recommend him for your getaway trip

    Shabier is professional, courteous, flexible, knowledgeable, and a joy as a guide. We had three fabulous days on our first time in South Africa. He timed each tour destination perfectly as we got right in and saw that at later times there were significant lines. We had specific preferences such as dry wines versus sweet, and a spontaneous paraglider ride. We would highly recommend Shabier to be your guide!

    Ray, our guide, made the day very pleasant and unforgettable with his relaxed and friendly manners. He is a very professional guide, during the day I learned a lot both about South African society and wine tasting. The weather was fine, the wine was tasty and the views spectacular. This is definitely something I recommend other travelers to experience!
