Great day out! Well-structured route with just the right number of stops for a full day of tasting. Very grateful fir the pick-up and drop-off at the estate we were staying at, especial after the many lovely wines that we tried. Good value, and strongly recommended. - Raj

Our experience on Vine Hopper could not have been better. We were picked up and transported to Stellenbosch on time & in great comfort. Our excellent driver even made a requested short stop at a shop on the way. We joined the Vine Hopper Bus and enjoyed 4 magnificent wineries. On the advice of our Driver we Han lunch at Delhiem Wines and what excellent advice this was. Our final winery was Warwick, which was fantastic, but by then we done enough (there was time for one more, but we declined). Our Driver returned us to Capetown with no delays. I would Highly recommend Vine Hopper & all of its staff. They were fantastic, helpful and absolute professionals. - John
