What to expect

Enjoy three wine tastings at award-winning wine farms, accompanied by a cheese assortment and cellar tour, an exciting ride on the Franschhoek tram, and a visit to the Drankenstein Prison where Nelson Mandela spent the last part of his captivity.

Stellenbosch

We start the morning off at the Stellenbosch Winelands, only 20 minutes out of Cape Town, which offers majestic scenery that is entirely different from the Cape Peninsula. You will discover different grape varieties that grow in the area such as Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, and the uniquely South African Pinotage. You will also learn about the Méthode Cap Classique developed in the region, that emulates and rivals the very best French champagnes. You will have the opportunity to purchase wines to bring back home to enjoy the region's delightful vintages after your visit.
(1h45)

Franschhoek

We then head to Franschhoek - a wine lover's dream destination - also known as "the French corner", an old Huguenot village. With its numerous streets and estates with French names, the town will make you feel completely bewildered, feeling like you were in France in another era. You will be completely enchanted by the town's charm and its peaceful environment. You will get the chance to taste the region's delicacies, cheeses, and its best wines. Then take a unique ride on the Franschhoek Tram, a journey through beautiful vineyards, breath-taking scenery, and award-winning wine farms.
(2h)

Drakenstein Prison

Drakenstein, also known as Victor Verster Prison, is located between Franschhoek and Paarl. The prison is famous for being the one where Nelson Mandela spent the last fourteen months of his imprisonment for campaigning against Apartheid. Here you will get to see a recently unveiled, larger than life-size statue of Nelson Mandela raising his fist, not in anger, but as a well-known gesture of defiance, usually accompanied by the freedom slogan - 'amandla awethu' in isiZulu or 'power to the people' in English.

Paarl

We end off the tour at the town of Paarl, offering you a great perspective into Afrikaans culture and tradition. The district is especially well-known for its Pearl Mountain or "Paarl Rock". The huge granite rock is formed by three rounded outcrops that make up Paarl Mountain and have been compared in majesty to Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) in Australia. Paarl offers you a diverse range of wine farms, the famous Spice Route, the Taal Monument (the Afrikaans language monument), coffee shops, breweries, and plenty more. You will also be able to visit the town's vineyards where you will taste the region's finest wines.
