Tours in Cape Winelands

An hour’s drive northeast of Cape Town is an expanse of the most beautiful countryside in South Africa, with jagged mountain peaks and lush valleys lined with vineyards. Historic towns, quaint villages and gracious Cape Dutch homesteads are to be found in the Cape Winelands. Stellenbosch is South Africa’s oldest town and its rich history is evident in the beautifully preserved architecture along oak-lined Dorp Street. Nearby, the charming village of Franschhoek is known as the ‘gourmet capital’ of South Africa because of its plethora of wine estates, award-winning restaurants and intimate bistros.
